We've touched on that thing, it is to whip cars and there is a website that sells them. Living the stereotype of a bad HD rider. (As opposed to a true motorcyclist that just happens to like harleys.) I can't believe that it is actually attatched to the brake lever, what could possibly go wron there?
It also looks like it could whip his kid back there while she's texting or playing angry birds.

I saw a pick up today with a license plate frame declaring, "owned by a harley davidson owner." Struck me as odd, I guess it's kind of like Baby on Board and you are supposed to be extra cautious around it.

Hang one of these bad boys from your waist to complete your biker outfit, if you really want to make a statement. Fringe at the end of the whip can vary between 6-8" from the tie off.
Yo ho, yo ho...

Oh and if you're going to insult someone get the terminology right, it's my screen name, not my sig, that refers to my fraternity.

FYI, The Eta Triton Chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa, at the time I was a member, was an unofficial military fraternity. Everyone in it at the time was either in the Reserves, prior service, a brat, or in ROTC, like I was. That is, was, until I got hurt in a motorcycle accident and got medically discharged. Hang on a second, I think I've got the pictures around here somewhere. I'm sure you'll relish the opportunity to laugh at my misfortune, which prevented me from continuing in the service.

When you know the difference between a sig and a screen name, get back to me.

Your screen names means you were the 1071th pledge in your frat.
Founder in your sig refers to Animal House.


I did my six years with Uncle Sam.
Want me to show you some real pictures?

Rather reminds me of Castle Anthrax.

And me.
And me.
DINGO: Yes, yes, you must give us all a good spanking!
GIRLS: A spanking! A spanking!
DINGO: And after the spanking, the oral sex.
GIRLS: Oral sex! Oral sex!
GALAHAD: Well, I could stay a BIT longer.

We get it...you can't stand to see people hurt. My take is that all those shots were taken within seconds of each other. No way did they cause the accident or delay any response. They reflect a reality that you find uncomfortable. You remind me of my mother who, up until the day she died, was fairly certain that there were no gay people in Germany where and when she grew up...

Now can we get back to arguing about darksiders? Here's a 205 to misdirect this useless debate...

I'd have 7 years worth as of now if I hadn't ended up in the hospital. My sig refers to this:

and has nothing to do with my fraternity.
