Dunkin doh nuts in Wilmington .....must agree life is good
I hear Dunkin Donuts is expanding in a huge way. Good for them. Here's a pic for ya.
Is there a Starbucks in Death Valley?
Got to figure how to mount this to the bike.
Duh, you pour it in the Camelback. $12 Caffeine buzz all day.:huh
Almost as good as meth.
I could use that ....
I have heard of guys putting gas in those.
Reading material while you sip on your latte.
Free coffee for anyone who can catch this guy...
So this is what I don't get....
A lot of ADV'rs want these state of the art bikes, the fastest KTM's on the planet, tons of grunt and superb handling, able to go from crate to race course, then add all the latest gizmos and 'farkles' ( I hate that word). Then they ride like old men. "Oh we just want to take a liesurely ride, stop and take pictures, smell the roses, we're just not in a hurry." WTF???? :huh
Why are all the manufacturers building faster and more capable bikes when half of the riders just can't and won't ride them to their capability?
It's been proven over and over a guy tends to ride about the same speed regardless of the bike. So why do they lust after the biggest and the baddest, buying the latest state of the art bikes?
Or why do they buy a lite-bike for trails and pile shit on it to tour? Or buy a great big tourer and try to ride it like a dirtbike?
I'm just not getting it.
Fixed. My KTM is 10 years old...and still gets the job done.
Because they're men
We are not men, we are Devo.
Hmmm...'just because they can', well yeah, duh. It must come from our youthful racing roots. We just think we want faster.
I wasn't thinking of them specifically. Just more in general. I see a lot of middle-aged guys that just want to poke along, putter, and stop, dink around, and drink and shit, all manner of what isn't riding. I guess that's fine, just because they can.
Another thing I see is guys trying to get a bike to do even what it was never designed to do. Lot of internet jockies are like that - they make a big issue out of totally modifying a bike so it will do something it was never design to do and then they're all proud about it and shit. Then when you make a general statement about a particular bike they are all up in arms because "That's just not true. My bike...yadayadayada..."
Yep...because they can.
Oh geez...We just can't admit that here.
We always called it 'boys and their toys'. And some have more money than brains.
Farkels came from all those the gay beemer riders, This is straight from the urban dictionary
when two guys rub there dicks together, the first one to get hard loses
BTW, there called disco biscuits
LOL, yep, that's pretty funny.
and I've always disliked that term and now I know why.
Haha yeah, farkel even sounds gay.
This is a coffee thread not a farkel thread.
