Its the smell of a city where people neatly tuck their cellphones between their shoulders and ears, and whip their dicks out in the middle of the sidewalk and take a piss while still walking. Its the smell of a city that lets dead dogs and cattle rot in the middle of the roads.

Did I make a general statement about India? No. Guess you have some insecurity issues about your origins, and no, I don't give a shit if you're Indian. You brought that up, and I wouldn't have asked. So go fuck yourself.
Wow someone touched a nerve there huh?

Dirt.

i want to take my v-strom offroad.

i don't have knobbies, though that could be a future consideration. i'm not looking for anything too crazy. the strom is a heavy ass bike, but it's all i got.

i'd like to find some gravel roads, dirt roads, double track, doubletrack with rocks, baby heads, whatever...

is there anywhere to go? why the hell do i live so close to NYC?

someone help me out here

So you are just enhancing the stereotype of the "American" tourist who goes to a foreign land and starts getting all judgmental. Thank God that it's a stereotype and as most stereotypes go, mostly wrong.

I did touch a nerve here looks like. Seems your real beef is with your employer who put the company's balance sheet before the human capital. Am presuming you have shown the same bravado aka "Fuck yourself" etc to them already :)

We go to the bike show Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

GHO and ArZan discuss their difference of opinion in the alley behind Dr.Rock and Francine' s building Saturday night before the party.

It almost never worked.

OTOH, since mounting it on my windscreen, I've never had to wait like an ass for the toll booth attendant to fix the problem. (In NYC we have gates.)
I don't know if they'll even let you do this (was going to call today but got lost in Brooklyn instead. I swear Google Maps/iPhone has RUINED my sense of direction) but I would like to switch between my two bikes. I could care less about mounting it on the F650, but I really don't want to mount one on the Monster. Unless you can get them in titanium or carbon fiber, anyway.

The real question is:

Which is worse?



And no, you don't categorize the US based on Elizabeth. Just New Jersey!

OK, now that the obligatory put-downs are out of the way...

(and by the way, yes, GHO100 does do a fair job of sticking it to 'em)

It is my observation, strictly empirical, that there are indeed many very bright, capable people all around the world, from all races, cultures and walks of life. The brightest and most capable of them all are the quickest to move away from places that lack what most consider to be the most basic infrastructure. The rest stay where they are and provide enough mediocrity and sneaky bullshit to create a solid impression that there is nary person in the entire country capable of doing anything but writing malware to fuck up Pakistani nuke plants.

One job I had, the folks in Hyderabad were playing recordings of noise chatter and ringing phones when picking up support calls, so they could blow off important calls until their card games were over or they were finished with their cigarettes. In America only unions are capable of even approaching stories of such dickery.

The job I'm leaving now, a couple of people disappeared mid-job because they were deported. Just this week I had one guy 8000 miles away who waited three hours for me to spoon-feed him an answer that he could have found on Google in five minutes. And I initially told him exactly what to search for. FYI, what he wanted me to do was tell him how to perform his job. If he can't do it without me, WTF do we need him for exactly??

And don't even get me started on the folks were using in Argentina. Holy shit. I can't even decipher their emails and texts.

Shit like that is part of why I today am happy to announce that my motorcycle riding will become substantially less torturous. My days of commuting to See-cock-ass NJ (and working with lazy dumb-asses 8000 miles away) are over as of Monday. I'll have more time to screw with you fuckers here and should have more time to bruce the taggers too.
