It sounds wonderful because it is wonderful. Better than motorcycles.

But if (sadly) the shit hits the fan you may not have a choice in how your limbs will be dealt with. Sounds crazy but it's true. Lot's of scenarios but some are not "best case".

You wanna bite, they're real good.

VINCENT
I ain't hungry.

JULES
Well, if you like hamburgers give
'em a try sometime. Me, I can't
usually eat 'em 'cause my
girlfriend's a vegetarian. Which
more or less makes me a vegetarian,
but I sure love the taste of a good
burger.

You know what they call a Quarter
Pounder with Cheese in France?

BRETT
No.

JULES
Tell 'em, Vincent.

VINCENT
Royale with Cheese.

JULES
Royale with Cheese, you know why
they call it that?

BRETT
Because of the metric system?

JULES
Check out the big brain on Brett.
You'a smart motherfucker, that's
right. The metric system.

I just spent three hours loading the bikes onto a borrowed trailer.

"Borrowed?" You say. Yes, although collectively my brother and I have 3 trailers, I borrowed his friends trailer with a winch.

Well, fat load of good that piece of shit did.. It would release but not retract. No, I tried many different techniques, I'm not that much of a moron.

So, I had to wrestle the bikes up the shitty ramps by myself in the snow. I bent the shift lever on the conversion rig (damn it), but.. like I said, after three @#%$'ing hours of wrestling and slipping and yelling, they're loaded on my trailer, ready to take the journey to my shop.

Sorry, I had to vent.

The one time they sit out over-night and there's an ice storm.

Better start drinking.

That's about 1/4th of the shop, by the way.

How else do you think my brother(s) and I have 10 motorcycles, 4 lathes, etc..
