Sounds like a good read. I've been wondering when someone would write "Motorcycling for Dummies." Maybe if the author changes the cover to yellow and black he can get his book in every store!

Wait a moment, I am no dummy! I am a Complete Idiot! Would you believe the Complete Idiot's Guide to Motorcycles is now on it's third edition?

The mind swoons at the sheer number of idiots (idioti?) that represents. I did read the second edition of that book. Of course, I am not a complete idiot. I borrowed it from the local library.

Booyah!

Are you serious? There really is a "Complete Idiot's Guide to Motorcycles?" Where has that been all my life?

Cheesebeast 09-05-2007 12:55 PM

Yes, but Idiots will never rise to the status of us [sniff] MOrons. We generally don't associate with their type.

All well and good but does the book go over field expediencies like using copper wire as a helicoil in an RD350 so you can get home? Huh? Does it have stuff like that?

Cheesebeast 09-05-2007 01:57 PM

Nah, that was covered in detail in FM 55-30 Army Transport Units and Operations, and was touched upon in STANAG 2067 Control and Return of Stragglers.

Seruzawa, I do wonder. How do you stand being such a tactical badass mofo? How do you DO it???

Yes. Look up "Darwin Holmstrom" author...........

Cheesebeast 09-05-2007 04:46 PM

I am still geeking out about that copper-in-the-place-of-helicoil trick.

I wish I didn't know what a helicoil is. That brief moment of innocence... a bolt tightened just a tad too far- and WHAM innocence lost. No longer will the term "stripped" bring up "strippers" in the old mental rolodex. NO, now it means money. Pain. Spilled fluids.

Hmmm....

I got to go lay down.

Don't blame me...

...blame Uncle Sam. I spent a year as a member of Genghis Khan's hordes. They trained me. Now they get to suffer the consequences. In fact, ALL OF YOU DO!
