I have a simple solution for hordes.

Semtex placed strategically on the pillars of a multi level parking structure. Set off car alarms on top floor.

Wait for it to fill up, press little red button

Im keeping my gold wing and XRL. If I had to keep only one.....it would have to be the wing. Huge built in zombie deflection shield (all that tupper ware is perfect!) handle bars tucked away, XRL has exposed bars. One zombie hit and I am laying on the ground like a zombie buffet! Thats so ugly I dont even want to think about it... Plus I got a stereo, crank up some tunes and I would be the pied piper and lead the zombie hoard into a trap or my trench. Frank Zappa, Zombie woof. perfect. ZPZ version. I miss Frank.

OK so it isn't a Zombie... But the theory is sound.

What would you ride when the SHTF?


I am thinking the either:

1. The biggest Harley tourer I can find with a modified cattle gate attached to the front (mow those Zombie bastards down!)
2. Or a little WR250X (run like hell!)

What say you all?
i plan on riding and swinging my sword as i ride past them

yeah, The 600K is a problem. but it is nice to know 7lbs of explosives can go off under your truck and all you get is a flat tire.

100mpg: that is in my top 5 favorite Zappa songs. Napoleon Murphy Brock is a legend, he just absolutely kills it (in a good, zombie way) on this recording! Vai of course is also unmatched...and Dweezil does a hell of a job to boot. I gotta go see them live next time they are nearish.

Telling you all the Zomby troof: Here I'm is, the Zomby Woof!

Reety awrighty - I, too, miss Frank.
