    I think the money was just to help the family while they are in Florida visiting him.

    Yeah no clue on the dirtbag that hit him. Drunk driving and drugs in the car, he cant be too bright.

    I don't think it will help Doc. When you figured out you were low on fuel you sped up to get to the station faster.:huh

    Saw a guy this morning doing the shake-it-to-left dance w/ his XR650L. Luckily, he was about a 1/4 mile from a gas station.

    Sure love my 4 gallon, under the seat fuel tank on my 58mpg girls bike. :ricky

    Todd and I were playing around with our gas mileage last week. His bike is completely stock, mine has a pumper carb, full exhaust, opened air box and a K&N filter. We rode the piss out of the bikes one day. I got around 40 MPG, Todd got 37. The next day we rode them like little girls. I got 40 MPG, Todd got 46. WTF???????? At least I know I may as well ride the piss out of the bike. :lol3

    Conning Americans into keeping up with the Jones' buy yard work & grass mowing was a Communist plot that worked.
