It will follow along. Can't be too well prepared, can you?
However, the blue do rag is a fail.

Does it countersteer, or just wish itself around the corners?

If by "you have made the list" he means that I'm on his Ignore list, I'll have to depend on someone else to illustrate for me where in that post was crap thrown.
I would quote him for you, but someone would have to quote him first!

Ok, so by now you surely must have come up with every possible argument against ´atgatt nazis´ & wearing proper gear? Kinda hard to see what´s the point, though, because right from the start, everyone has been free to do exactly as they see fit.

I would love to live in a city that had as nice a public transportation system as Sydney.

I've been riding since about 1970. I put 80K miles on at least a couple of the thirty or so bikes I've owned. I ride when I want to. Last weekend I made a lunch run on Saturday and another on the Monday holiday. Total miles for these two lunch runs was about 700 miles.

FYYFF.

Why be so judgmental? Measuring your own shortcomings?

In some parts of the world, riding 365 days a year is not a valid option ;)

The fuq you just say?

It's awesome how any one who doesn't think like you, is a nazi...pretty strong words from someone who has a such a small grasp of grammar.


Jus' sayin'...


Can I try to sum up this thread real quick?

Anyone who chooses to wear gear, is a dumb fuck nazi who actually cares what you do. You choose not to wear gear and anyone who does is a dumb fuck nazi. You personally have seen lots of guys crash and none ever needed a helmet because they held their head up, so anyone who does, is a dumb fuck nazi. Everyone cares how I ride, so they are dumb fuck nazis. No one believes, when I say, that if you crash at any speed, you will likely not be injured, so they are dumb fuck nazis.

I've always wanted to visit Australia..hopefully, not everyone, is as fuck all stupid as you make yourself out to be. And I don't think you are but you sure play the part..

What's the problem there? That snow brushes right off and if it is deep enough on the roads you will sink in so deep it will hold you upright!

You have a point there, and in that fluffy snow I won't need any gear at all when I fall over :)

Unfortunately, that Aprilia died (it didn't like the ethanol in the fuel, and I ran out of oil without noticing a hose spewing oil over the place).

I must also admit that I was not ATGATT on that thing ...
