I agree. This story is hard to swallow, for several reasons, with 70mph one-handed wheelies on a Valkerie that is, as Honda crowed, "over eight feet long", being right out there in front.



He also needs to go back to flight school, because he's got being behind the airplane, and the back side of the power curve mixed up.



It's an entertaining yarn, I guess, but a little too ernest.

Default Re: mouse jousting with wild Irish women.

I've used those sticky traps before and encountered the same issue of what to do with mice that were trapped, but still alive. After about 2 minutes pondering my options, I put the entire trap (with mouse still stuck to it) in a large ziplock bag and delivered one swift blow to the mouse's head with the trusty old Stanley hammer. End of problem and no vet bills.

I'm still waiting for the Suzuki "40th anniversary of the charter" and Yamaha "25th anniversary of the cruiser" parties.



I'm ready to make the pilgrimmage to these fine events.



Got any info?

Well, Maybe if he rewrote the story to be about half as long, then it would be funny. But as is I had too much time to conclude the implausibility of it. Then I felt cheated especially because I liked the first part.

Default Biker vs. Critter

Best one I've heard is from a buddy of mine...



Years back, he was steaming down the road, and just after an oncoming car went by, he saw something >just< before he felt a really sharp impact to his throat, just at the top of his sternum.



He reached up to feel, then looked down at his hand. It was covered in blood!



He says he thinks he "screamed like a girl", and immediately made for the shoulder of the road.



When he got stopped, he got a good look at what was what.



Which was a significant amount of blood and... feathers!

Default The figure was a she, she was shapely, and she was nude.

The squirel was a good story, but now this story, by the same author is a GREAT STORY.

He'd better stay the f*ck away from screenwriting if that other story is the best he can do, dialogue wise:



"I do not wish to disrupt your plans, but I need a ride to the lake if you please"



"The last thing I need is for the police to show up. A very few may understand, fewer still would help. Most are just school-yard ruffians"



"I have no money with which to pay you "



"The Dragon is she? She is gorgeous." She eyes me critically for a moment. Nods. "She suits you."



"I know not. Anything. Anywhere."



"Come in if you would like." She whispers. "It would be my honor and pleasure."



And then she peeled off her silicone face and revealed herself as a fembot. She climbed under my half closed face mask and started knawing off my nose...

If there are going to be babes and beer then I don't care if they are celebrating "Hodaka, A Modern Legend."



At least neither Suzuki nor Yammerhammer are going to celebrate by providing only two septagenarian clog dancers for entertainment. Heck, they might even bring over some of those delectable Japanese umbrella girls and a load of Asahi Beer! Hubba hubba!
