ROFLMAO, Trials on TV

Jesus, Misinformation...
talk about not really knowing anything to tell people about Trials at least, dammit.

Course I only watched 4 minutes of the video so far...

But I have one just exactly like the one Nascar Guy Greg Biffle is having restored.

I'm not a fan of the show or shows like it. They're always spouting off nonsense.

+1.

I sure hope that Biffle got paid a lot to have that doofus screw around with his dad's old Montesa. "Reality" shows.....

He has the head off and is turning over the engine with the kick starter saying "This thing has great compression." With the head off.


I did just see Doug Lampkin on Top Gear.

He raced a couple of free runners through a huge old building. Did a jump from one structure to another that at least 2 stories high! He won the race.

Sadly,

I watch those shows and sometimes think I picked up an intersting factoid of sorts, or least a new "ah" moment. That is on crap I hardly know shit about, then you see this, something I feel collectively "we" know shit about, and go thinking, "hmm, think he was wrong/lying that much when he said "this coke machine is the most sought after, and most wanted one there is..." and now I go thank gawd I didn't ever "do anything" you know, like buy one hoping he was right somewere down the line...

OK so who's worse, Gas monkey, or counting carz?

I love watching that doofuss on the monkey, pay $5000 for a worthless car, spend money fixing it up talking and "thinkin" he's gonna make lots of money at an auction, then LOSE his ass... Yep, well come to think of it, that would've been how it works for me, so seem more like "reality" to me, just sayin. LOOL
