I used to make a run to Belgium and stock up about every 6 months when I lived in Germany. That was 5 years ago though

Stopped at the way out of Cade's Cove for a quick photo. Little chilly but a nice ride.
Sweet looking ride!

Unless I'm mistaken, every Trappist brewery is available in the US except for Westvleteren

No. If you are too stupid to take care of your children and pets, I will do it for you. I will be happy to let you be too stupid to take care of yourself.

Afterall, would you let your neighbor's children be injured because of thier parent's stupidity because you didn't want to be "overbearing"?

First, where is the injury? Are you telling me that the kid pictured was harmed in some way? I call bullshit. I bet he is enjoying himself immensely!

To answer your question: Yes, It is how they learn.

If the parents were being abusive psychologically or physically then the answer is "no, I would not let it go unchallenged"

Laws are needed to protect from GROSS abuse of living things. Nothing more.

You keep going down the path of collective responsibility and all things for the greater good etc.. You loose what little freedom we have left.

Before long physical recreation will be illegal. Around here the schools don't let children play outside! No sports, no running no nothing. Its insane.

We see the results of this on the dragon, they mostly ride slowly on overloaded cruisers doing 15 mph. :

"Sodomy" is technically illegal in some states, to include (with semi-graphic descriptions on the books) things like oral sex.

Yeah, them there "for your own good" laws make us so much safer...

Clearly he keeps trying to fail on the dragon but has thus far failed to do so

Why not a small trailer? I go through rear tires fast enough already. To each his own, but it seems like a bad idea to haul a bike like that. I guess that may be the only way that bike ever does a power wheelie
