Your point?

I suppose my altering of "The Ballad of Buckethead" struck a little close to home?

Oh, and it's 652cc's of slug. Those extra two cubic centimeters make a difference!

Great ankle protection for your dirt/supermoto riding style there...

Hate to see what happens the first time he bobbles and plants that foot.

Yeah! Stupid fucking men and their no women allowed! How dare they set up a group like that! *grumble grumble*

Freedom to associate. Maybe they don't like hearing about color coordinating the officer patches with seasonal themes at the table.

Aw com'on. Can't you see that they are Badasses?

If they can ride in the gyno'/parachute position, they don't need no stinkin' fender.

But the Gap has that special appeal that is hard to resist. Also looking forward to hitting Wheels Through time on Thursday. Then it is the Blue Ridge Parkway back north.

Tourist.






Thanks for the route and have a great time. Chace and I are heading that way in early September.

I'm guessing the rain riding isn't something that bike has done before or will do again.

Limiting membership to men only makes them chauvinists ? I read their page and didn't see mention of female servitude.

Nope, that's a Sportster engine and with 50+ mpg's and what looks to be roughly a 2 gal tank he should be just fine. Only problem I can see with that bike is that I'm not getting to ride it.

Lack of front brake, lack of rear suspension... Let's be honest, after a good amount of riding a bike like that most any rider will develop the riding position this guy is doing to temporarily alleviate the shock and vibrations to his spine. The bars, too, seem far too short for his really far back seat... so to use the bike on a Dragon he probably has to ride it like that to be effective and not be in even more pain. I'm seeing a few problems there.

50+ mpg? pic of proof or gtfo e10 gasoline is a bitch.

i wanna find the fucko that decided that a range of less than 100 miles was acceptable. i'll start thinking about gas at 100 miles. i'll start looking for it at 130.
