And they would've.


Just checking ... and you have indeed confirmed ... still living vicariously through 'old uncle Angus' ... eh???? Though a lean mean triathlete ... deep down inside ... you've always want to be in the 'Strong Man Competions'!!! But alas ... not to be ... just a life of freakin speedos & spandex biker shorts not to mention gay boots!!! Oh my my ... I here Angus rolling over in his grave as we speak!!!!! Just imagine what he'd do to you ... if he got one of those big mitts on your sleek slender bod!!!!!! Can you say ...OUCH!!!!!!

I don't know what I'm talking about??? I noticed a small indentation down there ... right about where the center stand knobby come up to ... and though my fall must of done that. It would be a great design idea though ... cause lots of us GS boys drop them once in a while ... cause weez all adventurers!!!!

A pic to confirm would be great ... thanks ... though I'm banking on Moon to know exactly what he's talking about!!!!

What baldy didn't tell you, was that uncle angus wore a size 6.5 shoe. I understand it was quite entertaining watching him in a strong wind

Actually, that's not great aunt, he looks girly by comparison to you-know-who, but he is in fact exactly 6'4".

I am exactly 6'4" too (triathlete-sized) and here's what I looked like next to him:



And here's fish's point of view while looking at him:



Never mind the stray reference to what triathletes wear.

I'll have you know that, in the original Razorbak scenario, immediately following the release of cRAsH's prescient camera shutter, the mighty GS continued rolling another 270 degrees, mysteriously righted itself, and Porky continued the ride completely unphased. Jes like the commercial jingle says, "Weebles wobble but they don't fall down." :):

That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it!
That a boy Pork Chop ... I bet nobody else could of put it in gear ... and snapped that throttle open ... and got that bike rolling again ... but you!!!! Obviously the leaning on the rock thing was intentional ... and for the photo shoot only!!!! And obviously you weren't pinned ... but positioned ... to as it were ... 'ride it up'!!!

Geez ... this could score some big points in Baldy's adventure poll !!!! Good luck with the continued sales pitch ... to all who actually witnessed the incredible event!!!!!
