Beats the hell out of those stupid fucking Uggs

I hate those things, was thrilled to see the local wiminz start wearing boots again, and nice tall catch-me-fuck-mes at that.

Do people trailer these contraptions to the Dragon or actually ride them in from somewhere distant?

I can't understand why this thing would be street legal, but an ATV isn't.



The ATV seems just as road worthy, if not more so.

One of the shocking revelations of the last few years for me was that people actually trailer their bike to meets and vacation spots and ride the bike around. I've always held the view that the trip is half the fun. I've also come to grips that when travelling bikers actually pull into a motel for the night and not camped out in a tent, bivvy sack or tarp.

I do imagine that many of these Frankentrikes are trailered in. Can you imagine a 400 mile day on some of these contraptions?

ATVs are street legal here, as are radar detectors.

I don't believe turn signals are legally necessary. Fairly certain they aren't in Ontario.

But, I don't understand why people make some of these things. They obviously handle like shit. I'd bet they don't brake worth a shit. They look very uncomfortable to "ride". And they must be awful to navigate around a parking lot or city street. Why in hell would anyone make such a thing other than for a grade 10 shop class project? Hmm, even then 14 year olds usually have better taste.

I don't understand the trailering thing either.

The hotel thing I understand only because I ride a sport bike and don't make the room to pack camping gear. That and I can now afford a hotel where I couldn't when younger.

Some people's sense of taste doesn't evolve past a 14 year olds.

It's their time and money, they seem to enjoy it, it doesn't effect you any, why worry?

Because buried somewhere in there is probably at least part of a frame that has been DOT approved and titled by a state somewhere.
