Actually, by detemining where I am, my location has changed due to the fact that my looking caused me to move -- it's this weird new quantum physics crap. and I thought the "new math" didn't make any sense!

More Stupid Questions But With Well-Worn Wise-Ass Replies

Does that thing really have a Turbo?
"Yes. It's right under here. That's why it has 'Turbo' written on it in five different places."

Did you really ride all the way from Pennsylvania?
"No. It has 140,000 miles on it because I trailer it everywhere."

What's wrong with your odometer?
"Nothing. You've just never seen a dual sport with that many
miles."

Where's your truck?
"I don't have one. I ride to, ride in, and ride home from events on my dual sport."
Yea? But where's your truck?

Did you see that tornado?
"See it? Hell I rode through it. I guess you didn't notice my shredded rainsuit."


Aftermath of a Texas Tornado (1981)

Yesterday about my Duc..
"Do you ride that through saltwater?!?"

now that I think about it, it is both not that stupid a question and maybe a case for why some people brag about why their bikes never have seen bad weather. Maybe they're not so dumb either.

Really though, a "pump up" bike. Kinda like the BB gun I have from when I was a kid. Ten pumps was the max on my gun, but I routinely wanted to see how powerful twenty pumps was! I know, I'm hardcore.
Many years ago while walking home from school I passed a lady mowing her yard. I remember this because there was a crank handle on top of the motor. She wound it up, pulled a lever or something, and the spring spun the motor and started it.

Victa in Australia (inventors of the rotary lawnmower) had a wind up spring starter on some models back in the 1970s or earlier.



I'm sure other companies elsewhere must have had the same idea!

Not that I have a problem with my mower, but that would be pretty cool!
