Post above 1280 words.
13 002 posts at a guess I'd say about 3-4 million words.
and about 2-3 000 pics.
Then there would also be PM's

One thing to Troys credit is that most are quality well informed posts and the songs/poetry have always brought about a smile or two.

Al.
I love physics.
I especially like to see it at play during womens yoga.

But I suspect me changing my CofG to allow me to sit on my bum in the dirt with a surprised expression has little to do with physics.........

You reading this Troy? Go commercial, you'd be bigger than gravity. Riders everywhere would be drawn towards www.troyism.com .... you'd be rich, famous , glamourous...we'd be up on the pegs just to get a look. You could offer sponsered pop up advertising with honest muz and maico themes....pure power might corrupt...but you can handle it. Make it a religion....the ultimate tax free haven for ktm spending... then solve the worlds problems by finally developing THE OIL.

Ohhh..a serious post. Must re read the Tao of Pooh. Awesome book, but now we've got a donkey in the paddock I need to re evaluate my approach to philosophy "If you can't be right, be wrong louder than anyone else"

Question ...or... on the other hand...?

The good old tried and true philosophy of; "Park ya' arse on the saddle, kick it into gear, give the right hand a fistfull while saying f#% awwf to all the egghead wnakers on the intywebby-thingo and fishtail off into the sunset... might just be the way to go after all...?!

Has anyone managed to calcuate Troys typing speed? Must be a graduate of the Receptionist Centre. ( please dont tell me I'm the only one who remembers those adds, I was only a little fella; really.)

My method is to start standing up, but as the level of my CoG decreases I tend to sit down and lean back a bit. This improves stability greatly. Of course, once my CoG reaches a factor of more than negative 20 I generally end up on my arse or in bed with an extremely ugly women!
