Just one, the starter motor.
Uh, no comment...
Snow Camp, Mt Rainier every January. MLK weekend. Off the hook in the crazy department.
Oh, now I just noticed... Russia!
I gotta pay better attention... I kinda think BMW riders aren't quite the same world wide... I dunno though.
Like dancing naked in the snow crazy?...
Okay, you guys win. There are some wild and crazy BMW motorcyclists...
Not really stupid, per se, but I have had more than one stop-light admirer ask me how much my bike cost. That seems a little rude to me. I guess I should have replied Your wife has nice tits; how much did they set you back.
Punk 15-year-old smokin' a butt in front of a c-store with his girlfriend who was a full head taller than him:
"Do a wheelie."
Faceshield down, engine started, perfectly tame exit. I turn 37 this year but I don't feel it until I get irritated by idiot teenagers. Jesus... Thirty-seven? Really?
hah this is exactly where I am, just turned - and the convenience store hooligans are irritating sometimes - that's exactly the kind of kids I posted about back on page 1...CAN I RIDE IT?!
over the weekend, I had a bmx gang of lil rascals descend upon me as I was getting my bags and gear sorted - they actually made me laugh though, this one really small kid was all serious "so you been hittin any sweet backflips on that thing?" - oh yeah, xrl's and backflips go together like kibbles and bits kid then he asked if he could show me how to rip on that bike, so I had to point out the fact he can't touch the ground - he was like, pfft you don't ever need to put feet down on a bike - guess he didn't plan on stopping or riding offroad...EVER
Close, more like having a well respected Judge totally lit from slamming whiskey, yelling out at 2am to all who would listen: “GET OUT THE VIDEO CAMERA, I’M GONNA RIDE ACROSS THAT RIVER.” followed by: “What happens here stays here right?” It took an off duty LEO tripping on mushrooms to talk him out of it.
I used to get similar requests from dumb teenagers to do burnouts when I had my Corvette. I used to tell them "Give me $10 for my tire fund and I will." No one ever coughed up the dough.
I can't reach the ground with both feet on an XR/L and it hasn't slowed me down much.
You should have seen me on my KDX175 when I first got it at age 13. I had to jump off to one side every time I had to stop.
Didn't take me long to start trophying the 175-B class (this was before the 200cc class was invented) at the local enduros, even though I couldn't touch the ground...
On a BMW Dakar, last summer, when gas was $4+ a gallon, I'd get that rueful glance followed by questions about mpg. I'd tell them 65-70 mpg, which almost seemed unkind.
A couple of times, while stopped at a traffic light, someone on a bus would yell out the window, asking about the bike (Cool! What is that? Is that a motorcycle?). Yeah, this is a good time to strike up a conversation. As you well know, wearing a ff helmet doesn't lend itself to conversation - people don't seem to get that - :huh. So, I'd either pretend not to hear or smile/wave/whatever and ride off when the light changed.
Sounds like fun.
Got this today from the pretty young thing who took my money at Meanards for some household odds and ends:
"Ooh, you drive a motorcycle?"
"Uhh, yeah..." (no, this helmet and armored gear is just in case I trip...)
"I'm too scared -- you're all exposed to everything."
"Ha ha! Well, that's kind of the whole point of riding..."
"My daddy rode a motorcycle one time when I was little, and he said it scared him to death and he wasn't ever going to do that again."
The strange part is that not ten minutes later, I get the same damn thing, nearly verbatim, from another PYT when I'm buying a burrito for lunch.
Those girls are hitting you up for rides, dumbass.
Wow, given your sanctimony in the Killboy thread, I wouldn't think you would ever violate the law. I guess they weren't safety related offenses.
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZING!! The intarnets is always watching...
You seem to put a lot of faith in the law kid. While your working it in your mouth deciding whether to spit or swallow I'll give you a hint -traffic policing has nothing to do with safety and everything to do with revenue.
I'll let my safety record speak for itself. 35 years and zero street crashes and zero insurance claims. Zee-Eee-Argh-Oh!
Does it taste salty cop lover?
Your record is better than mine. If the subject of the Killboy thread had an accident and claim free history like yours, should we call him safe?
