there you go.

Daggnabbit, beat me to the punch, I had that guy in my queue for posting.

The photo string looked like fun... that day.

Tomorrow, or the next? I predict he will rue his choice in footwear. RUE, I tell you!

I was in an all male riding club. We let in 2 girls, 1 skinny that started sleeping with a few members, 1 fat girl who tried to get some but was rejected by every member. More drama than anyone wanted to deal with. Caused a few fights. Significant others of club members got pissed as to why they didn't get patched even though they didn't own a scooter or even know how to ride. Significant others became jealous of the skinny girl who would act like a stereotypical dumb blonde and flirt with every guy there. Some of the guys got jealous they didn't get a turn. Half the club quit just so they didn't have to deal with the bullshit. Completely destroyed a club people had taken years to build up, ruined long time friendships, broke up couples/marriages.

i wanna find the fucko that decided that a range of less than 100 miles was acceptable. i'll start thinking about gas at 100 miles. i'll start looking for it at 130.
My Kaw Drifter 1500 gets 50 mpg avg. if I keep it under 80mph and no stop and go.

You're right. We should just go on breaking rules and putting up with the consequences if we get caught, rather than just pull together and make them legal.

You're a true american.

"Rules" only apply to someone else, right?

WTF are going on about ? I just thought that in thread full of law breaking, someone singling out a rider for standing was a bit silly that's all. Lighten up man.

I would LOVE to go up there and just blast, rape and pillage that road as much as the next guy...


But as it stands, I refuse to go up there just to contribute to the economy, and destruction of my MVR.

If they can ride in the gyno'/parachute position, they don't need no stinkin' fender.
The guy in front has a better line than 99% of the other pics (and I suspect posters) in this thread.
