What? Its just a little good natured ribbing! and observational Humor! Some people take this crap to serious! Hell I had to look up stenotic! I'm pretty sure that was meant to imply I have a Dried Up shriveled Vagina!

Reminds me of when my father sat me on the gas tank of his DT250 and rode me around the neighborhood without a lick of gear on.

One of the fondest and clearest memories from my childhood. Gave me a passion for bikes.

Guess I just take things too serioulsy but seemed a little ironic that you posted about the freedom of the open road, America at its finest and a dumb american, wearing a stupid half helmet with no gloves and yet your sig line says Ride Your Own Ride.

The chick is out riding, skills aside, on a road that some in this thread claim they won't ride because it's "too dangerous". I give her props for riding her ride, I give all chicks who ride props.

ATGATT is overrated.... it's for guys who are either too afraid of a boo-boo or those who feel like thay have to put on an amour suit to prove how manly they are to participate in such a dangerous activity.

Just like my signature says Ride your own ride and my ride today included making fun of someones differences from what I consider good riding form or attire, I also made fun of a guy for wearing a bright orange KTM leather suit! Does not make me right it's just a stupid commentary on a picture. Oh and I was trying to be Ironic Not as funny though if I have to explain it! Now where is a picture of someone doing something stupid at the TOTD! And the ATGATT comment should provide some good response's

yeah it is a good learner bike for my gf. unlike your 30hp 700lb hardley lol. The stock exhaust on the buell literally broke in half and fell off when the bike only had 800 miles on it. That is hardley quality for you though.

Understood, and memories I am trying to instill in my kids as well. I would love for them to enjoy riding motorcycles as much as I do but the photo I commented on looks a lot different than riding around the neighborhood......Know what I mean?

A few years ago I wouldn't have taken my 8 year old son for a bicycle ride in the neighborhood where I grew up either... you could get shot.

I don't know if I would ride the Dragon at all if I was in that area considering all of the squid traffic that it gets (car and truck squids too).

Thanks for staying off the Dragon, I feel safer now.

I won't come ride the roads that are close to you, so there.

Well don't slide down the pavement then...sheesh, this ain't rocket science...

For all of you guys afraid of the dark side...STFU already, you ride what you want to, and they'll ride what they want to.

And for the dark side guys...STFU already, they simply don't get it, and don't want to...
