Go back to driving cars since theyll get in the same amount of trouble and probably don't give a shit in the first place.

I give scooter guys a lot of credit. DUI or not they come into our store in the middle of winter in the ice and snow in Carhartt coveralls and don't make one whimper about the cold. Chalk that up to the fifth of Canadian Hunter they just drank or just pure ambition to get to work or get their business taken care of they are getting it done none the less. Heres one to the hard working post DUI scooter guy thats trying to turn it around

I figure one of them and a new bicycle pump for the tube bag will probably use up the certificate pretty quick.
Tim - I picked up a Monarch 2 legged chair in the Flea market a couple years back. Very comfy and packs light and tiny. It can be tricky to balance on at first (especially after a few drinks...) but I really like it. They recently came out with a similar design called the Mantis but on a more stable 4 legs. I also have an old folding stool (no back support) I can strap to the side cases

Shoot, a rich guy like you should just go ahead and get a Kermit.

I have had a kermit it sit pretty low to the ground also, so I use this

folds down to about 20x12x3 pretty flat and can pack stuff on top of it. I have had one break and sent in pictures and they sent me a new one.

Cool video! The blind water crossings always make me a bit nervous. I dunno, I'm kinda weird in the fact that I like to see the boulders (or super DEEP holes) that I'm about to crash into. Kudos to all of you though. Looks like a great ride filled full of adrenaline.

Recommendations? Some of the on-line reviews weren't very positive and they said some of the units fell apart after a few hours of use.

Tim--Check Amazon or REI for the Alite Monarch chair. It sits close to the ground on two legs and your two legs. Fits in a stuff sack 11" long by 4" diameter. Weight is about 8-10 oz. I've got a Kermit and it is big and heavy and $$$. Will only use it for short rides where weight and volume isn't so critical.

I'll let you guess what motorcycle orgainization's membership best represents this demographic...
Yea, and the same organization has many organized rides going from bar to bar to bar.

This effects every rider as a negative number. Sure the "cruiser' number is higher as registered motorcycles go in the State but not by much and are close to the same number as sportbikes. Alcohol, no gear and improper (or no) training are the leading factors in death's but overall the majority of crashes are related to piss poor driving by the four wheeled sector of transportation................the pirate rant is a poor way to direct blame.
Actually, the last major statistics for motorcycle accidents/deaths compiled by the CDC were in 2008:
http://www.cdc.gov/features/dsMotorcycleSafety/
Motocycle deaths involving cars/trucks were at an all-time low, while overall motorcycle deaths were at an all-time high.

http://www.nhtsa.gov/Safety/Motorcycles
Statistics show that the percentage of intoxicated motorcycle riders in fatal crashes is greater than the percentage of intoxicated drivers on our roads.


http://motorcycleaccidentlawyerpa.co...nt-statistics/
For years now, the average age of the victim from a motorcycle accident has been on the increase. That is to say, the average age of the cyclists who died in motorcycle accidents was under the age of 30 in the mid-70′s, but now we see that the number of riders over the age of 50 has actually surpassed the number of 30-year-olds, and in fact all other age groups

The engine sizes of the motorcycles involved in a fatal motorcycle accident have gone up drastically 29% of the accidents involved in engine size larger than 1400 cc, compared to only 9% a decade earlier. 83% of touring bikes had engines larger than 1400 cc, while off-road bikes and super sport bikes had engines of sizes 1000 cc or smaller.

I have the 2009 klx 250 sf in storage in Florida and discovered a way to start the bike easily without drilling the starter jet.

When I am going to park the bike for the day, night, week, month, or months, I turn the petcock position to off and let the bike run until the carb bowl is empty and bike dies on its own (I usually do this about 1/4 mile from my driveway, and I have a 600 ft driveway-only takes about a minute to empty once I park it).

When I go to start the bike, I turn the choke on, sit on the bike, turn the petcock position to on and rock the bike back and forth-side to side-3-4 times, then I press the start button, has always started in 2-3 cranks.

I learned this from another member of the klx forum.

If you are going to drill the starter jet, be careful, use the correct size-if you screw up-you are screwed, this jet is pressed in from the factory and getting it out and replacing it would be a PITA.

Of course I always fill the tank to max and pre-treat the gas with sea-foam before I store the bike for months.
