Well, here are some steps to qualify:

PayPal some scratch to Baldy for overhead, whatever you feel is appropriate, and you're on your way.

Post up a ride report and things are getting stronger.

Add some relevant advice to a thread and you're almost there.

Always vote "Fuck Loaded" in a poll and you're in.

To get back to the original poster's story. If someone flips me the bird out of the blue I will certainly not take it lightly. I do not believe anyone has the right to make a profane gesture to someone else by virtue of some sticker they have in their vehicle. Goofing around camping, or riding with your mates is a different story. If someone flips me off without identifying themselves, I will give them a whipping.

Fair enough. What controlling standards would you suggest be established here?

You can put a sticker on your bike when you ride over to Sam Bucas house and give him one of these in his own front yard whilst uprooting his petunias with your fresh new TKC's. That's adventure right there.

You don't get out much do ya? If the ADV salute pisses you off , what's this going to do?

How you decide you're ready

I put this on after I rode Baja solo. Some other FF has FYYFF, the FF. Hence mine is effin' eff' you, you effin' eff'.




I'm planning to start selling those KTM branded 908s but please don't bump me to vendors

And the problem with the real world is all those laws and so forth, like regarding battery and so on. Sticks and stones (and middle digits), is all I say.

Wait- so if I identify myself, and then flip you off, that's ok?

Conversation goes: "Excuse me, you don't know me but my name is so and so, and by the way up yours"

How long did it take you to position the bike to get the light to do that?

I looked at the picture first before I read the bottom part of your text and was baffled by what TF was going on there.

Brilliant!

I wandered out to pack the bike on the Vegas morning of our recent Moab trip and saw it just like that...sometimes you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right

Err...don't you think that your willingness to raise your middle finger, in front of the young children, was the proximate cause for that little unpleasant episode? Perhaps the GS rider isn't the one who should reconsider his actions here.

Brilliant!!

Im an 18 year old and I think the ADV salute is pretty stupid and vulgar anyway. My dad and brother and I want to introduce an alternate ADV salute as the salute from Monty Python's Life of Brian - the People's Front of Judea salute
