Next thing you know people will be smoking stop-leak. I'm not responsible for anything you do. Nice-long-Report. Good times, except the titanium stuff.

Should be a good time when your engine overheats- best bong ever. Maybe that picture should make the cover!

Don't make threats, now. I've already witnessed the power of your word.


It's frightening.

I always wondered why that photo looks so smoky. And here I thought it was "steam"
Is that your finger on the carb?

It all happened so quickly, I just don't know that I can put it into words. It went like this...

I pulled up to the motel room, ground floor. There was a ramp leading up to a widened handicapped accessible door, and I was in a sketchy neighborhood. It just made sense to wheel it in. I get settled in and realize that the bike is very much in the way, so I wheel it into the handicapped accessible bathroom. I double back and take off my riding gear. Being laundry day, this left me bare assed naked. And seeing as I'm already halfway there, I might as well take a shower.

I got halfway through my shower before the absurdity of the entire situation caught up with me. None of that was posed, that's just how everything ended up. All I did was set up a camera on the toilet and resume my shower.

My mother has a copy of that pinned to the fridge, it's on the front page rotation, made it into the WTF Picture Thread, and I've seen several references to it ever since. I am now known as THAT guy.

For as bad as all this weed talk must make me look, I am actually very proud of this fix. Once the thought process wound up, there wasn't a doubt in my mind that this would work.

this is prolly what should have been the title and the whole theme of this thread. i found this thread awhile back but forgot to subscribe before i shut down and lost it. just recently found it again so now i'm catching up. I'm hooked........and awakening the Fool that has been lurking in me all these years.
