I sincerely hope that you are never effected by a natural disaster, or an accident where there is no cell service, but if you ever are, an amatuer radio operator might just be your ticket to being saved.

Here is one example: http://www.dailyastorian.com/news/am...612d195ec.html

These people are volunteers. What do you do in your spare time?

They're having fun, that's all that matters to them. I'm just noting that by the strict defintions of the thread, "No fail here" ain't true.

Those tow hooks are on ALL cars. It's how they are secured in their containers for shipment and is an industry standard. If you look hard enough, you'll find the cover or hole. The dealers usually put the hooks with your spare tire. Take a look...

Anybody care to guess what factor is working in his favor to have those kind of numbers, aside from the fact that people are speeding.

I am sure someone here knows, what the typical fine for speeding etc. is on the dragon.

Not that would ever speed.

It's clowns like you who will ultimately cause us to lose this extremely practical method of transportation. I for one have NEVER traveled at speeds in excess of the posted limit, and can't imagine why anyone in their right mind would want to do so.


Rant over.
That was a joke, right? Sorry, it is hard to tell when someone is being sarcastic, you might actually be serious, and if you are, I would suggest getting rid of your motorcycle, as it probably hates you.

Unlikely to be posting on a motocycle forum if he was being serious - huh?
