Don't EVER tell a joke if there is a chance that someone may not get it. That they didn't get the joke is more a reflection on them than on him.

Why, it's a Kraftfahrzeuge Trunkenpolz, made in Mattighofen, Austria.

Yup. And people will do anything to avoid paying for parking, so they park on the sidewalk, on other people's lawns, in flower beds, on crosswalks, and right in the middle of the road.

I like to take my giant schnauzer, Bryson, along for rides in the Ural. Well, really, Bryson makes me take him. So Monday I took him to Lowe's. After leaving, while sitting in the front of the line waiting to turn left on US1, a guy turns left onto the sidestreet, stopping with the back end if his Suburban in traffic, causing two other cars to be stopped in the middle of the four lane. He rolls down his window and shouts "Is that really a dog in your sidecar!?"

I really wanted to tell him that it was a cat. But after seeing the look of pre t-bone terror in the eyes of the drivers stuck behind him, all I could muster up was "Dude, you're about to cause a major f#%*ing accident!"

Probably already mentioned, but....

Everyday I get asked/told by someone "do you know how dangerous motorcycles are?" I used to have witty responses but I ran out so now I just smirk.

I just answer that I'm a far greater danger to myself in most any situation in life and they should worry more for the sake of the poor innocent motorcycle that I'll most certainly destroy.

I listened to a local Highway patrolman talk a couple weeks ago about car safety and traffic accidents. He told me that if you load up a 747 completley full of people every week and crash it, thats equivalent of how many people die in car accidents. Do you think that if a 747 crashed every week that people would still fly? That's over 600 people a week! Not a flipping chance!!!

This is now my comback to people that tell me that motorycles are dangerous. So far I've used it twice, and I'm happy to say it works!
