Ive never ridden in Florida but I've heard that it's hot, humid, flat and full of drug addicts, pedophiles, and WT. I don't want to go there. I'm not saying you shouldn't go, just saying, I wouldn't go there right now.

My favorite, as reported before, is the guy who bails out on a hotel or motorcycle tour reservation with us because "his sister's neighbor's best friend's hairdresser's cousin went to Peñasco in the motor home and they were hassled and their stuff stolen. No arguing. The info is definitive.

Larry, an update on the numbers. It is now 113 million and 1. Just me and MikeMike now, Craneguy lost his head. Since everyone else is dead, the perp must be a Guatemalan from M13 passing through. Those bastards. (Probably heading for the US to get free health care)

Was in Mexico for about 3 weeks last month. While there, I was killed 2 times. Am I only counted once in the 13 million or am I counted twice?

That depends. Were you killed one of those times by John McAfee during a daring, daylight cross border murder spree from Belize? If so, that counts separately and we will have to bump the number again. Somehow I think you are making up the "killed twice" story to screw me up and make me look foolish in Larry's eyes. If I find out this is the case I guess I'm out of luck since you have already been killed twice and it would feel like piling on if I killed you again.

SR,
You are absolutely right. I decided to test the water and did a ride down to Key West in October. I saw all that stuff and even more. I'll be in Mexico next month.

Typical American. Just had to one-up the locals didn't you. Well the joke's on you; we only went to one of your funerals. We felt the second was redundant. (and when I say we I mean not me coz my headless body was still being held for ransom)

We did however hold two wakes. No sense in missing an opportunity to get drunk.

Seriously though, thanks for stopping by and presenting the facts.

Your numbers are a little off though. It's only 6.5 million dead. The other half are in the US where I hear they were resurrected under Obamacare. They now vote republican and use only synthetic oil and their front brakes.

One life for yourself and one for your dreams.

You drift through the years and life seems tame,
Till one dream appears and love is its name.

And love is a stranger who'll beckon you on,
Don't think of the danger or the stranger is gone.

This dream is for you, so pay the price.
Make one dream come true, you only live twice.

And love is a stranger who'll beckon you on,
Don't think of the danger or the stranger is gone.

I didn't know you'd moved to Colorado Trice. :eek:

It is grammatically impossible to use the following words together in a sentance stating a fact:

Florida
Fun
Motorcycle
Riding
Curves
Hills
Scenery

UNLESS

you also add the words:

"There ain't no"

McAfee doesn't have time to kill anyone, he's too busy being busy



PS John picks up the girls by guaranteeing them he has no STDs.

He's "anti-virus"

I wasn't close to Belize so I guess that it probably was not John. First time I did not even make it 10 minutes south of the border. Second time I think that it was a group of locals. They demanded my Captain Kid decoder ring. I told them the only way that they would get it would be over my dead body.

I can't believe that you would think that I am making this up. Don't you think that I am just as believable as the guys that listen to the news media?

Now now. Lets don't be American bashing. Not my fault that the Mexican media is not as good at brain washing as the US media is. Spend a little more time north of the border and you just might learn how to act like an arrogant American too.

Not sure but I think that we may have seen your head along the side of the road where we spent the night on the Devil's Backbone. It kept floating around like it was lost. Did not see it the next morning.

Do your numbers also include the thousands of nameless bodies that have been dumped in the ravines in the mountains? The bodies that nobody knows about, except for the US media?

If you were really cool, you would have a Tom Corbett, Space Cadet ring.
