Hypocrite much, ADV?
No, riding "left-of-center" just for the fuck of it still ain't cool, and your still stupid for thinking it's "your right to be left".

But again, We salute you Mr. IheartmyMX, a champion of motorcyclists rights (or left's), a real American hero!

No. Pretty much all onboard motorcycle videos are incredibly lame. If the wind noise isn't terrible, there is terrible music playing. If the wind nose and music are well managed, it's still boring and/or annoying because the rider is being a squid for the camera.

people drive like that in NC all the time.

and they don't use the f**king turnouts all the time, either.

There are 182241 people registered on this forum. I know it might come as a shock to you, but it is quite possible that some folks may have a differing opinion of some things. So maybe less hypocritical and more that some of the 182241 members hold various points of view on matters pertaining to motorcycles and the safe/appropriate operation thereof.

well said.
I have no issues passing on a double yellow if I can see clearly. Others of course may differ.

I didn't see any passes. Just the cage squealing tires trying to stay in front of the bike.

I think that probably somewhere in the vicinity of 182,232 of said people think IheartmyNX is a bit of a dope.

You're using that one the wrong guy. Zerk was the one calling us all chicks. Notice he hasn't been around for awhile?
Guess he didn't like hanging out in the hen house.

Does this mean all us KLR owners ride rat bikes

Furthermore, if something actually needs painting (unlikely) then a true rat bike owner will use either the cheapest possible paint or the first coating that comes to hand, regardless of color.

Finally - You should not "make" a rat bike. It should evolve, naturally, from a non-ratty bike, due to necessity and (possibly benign) neglect. I suppose it could also include some creative adornment that captures some of the bike or owner's history.

Forget his commentary. Look at the way he rides, overtakes, and what lanes he can legally do all that in.

Also notice how he gets along with the general public and how he's not being ran over like closed minded americans that feel they have the right to do, would do it.






Obamanation? Don't like being a take it in the ass amercian, because it's the law, then leave it! Commi "chick".
