Audrey Hepburn riding a motorcycle would way cool though, wishful again thinking leads to mistakes.

Correct on gearing options with multiple sprockets.. No brakes on these bikes. Wobbly frames, skinny tires, no suspension, triple digit speeds and men of iron.

No speedometers on race bikes. Speedo drive sprockets had a different cut to them.

That's an old dirt track race wheel or speedway wheel. They have sprocket studs on both side to make it easy to flip the tire to use a fresh edge..now why they have two sprockets on it I got no idea.

Always been astoundingly uninterested in a hot woman just posing with a manly object (car, bike, gun magazine, etc.)

Now, a girl that can RIDE, that's practical and relevant to my interests.

What can I say, I'm a practical man.

You certainly posted a racist remark.

The fact that those girls were mean didn't "cure" you of liking those girls, it "cured" you of liking any Asian women. From a limited sample you chose to infer that "100%" of Asian women are "nasty little bitches".
No. you made an erroneous assumption and all of your sniveling and whining is the result of the erroneous assumption you made.

100% of the waitresses in Hawaiian Restaurant were nasty rude bitches. which is why it closed - nobody went back. You weren't there so you don't know. You assumed I meant 100% of Asian girls on the planet. This is your error, not mine.

If you throw another hissy fit, you're just talking to the sky. I will not engage in a battle of wits with an unarmed man.
