Now wouldn't it be wild if you end up marrying the girl?
No pressure or anything.
Are you crazy? That's a good way to never get another date with this lady. To be clear I'm talking about the picture part of your post. The conversation part may get you a restraining order.
Dude! Really? "No pressure or anything." Now I'm jinxed for certain.
Listen, man, learn one dish and one dessert (chicken followed by chocolate), use a beard trimmer instead of a razor for a more masculine shadow, color coordinate, shoulders back, anticipate the ebb and flow of conversation and prepare accordingly, smile shyly and act open-minded.
If there's a follow-up date, find her a helmet.
Try saying you are on a thread at ADV (explain what it is) and you mentioned the incident which got you a date with her to the group. Then say they are pressuring you for a pic because you told them how hot she is.
This will work and the explaining of the thread, its anecdotes and what ADV is will be good first date talk. Maybe she has always wanted to ride too.
And I thought that Hardleys were the bike of choice for off road............
OK, somebody's got to say it, so let's get it over with. He should'a laid her down.
Nah, they were too busy getting ready to beat the shit out of the people in the motor home.
To be honest, I didn't quite get why he did that. Was the RV, or van or whatever, doing anything wrong? Other than being the rolling road block that they inherently are I mean? It seemed like the guy didn't even try to make the corner, just pegged it and went straight off. I hope he was OK, but WTH (what the heck) - I'm kind of conservative.
He says , Do you know how fast you were going?
He says , Do you know why I stopped you?
If you watch close, you can see his brake light come on right after he passes the rv, then locks up just before he goes off the edge. Seems to me he basically panicked. Froze up, couldnt make the turn, and paid for his impatience.
Like they say, look were you want to go, not were you don't want to go. $30K worth of bike, but 0 experience riding, live and learn.
Looks to me like he could have easily made that turn, even under hard braking (not locking them up) but instead he panicked and fixated and locked up the tires and then, well, he had to lay 'er down.
Not sure he actually layed 'er down though......seemed like pretty heavy brush down there....
If he'd done that in my back yard, it could have been a long, long way down. There was a Toyota pickup, 2 years ago I think, that went off a nearby pass. The guy lived, but the local rescue crew that went to the scene said you could see where he took the tops off of several large pines on the way down.
Back to the topic, no one much ever says anything to me when I'm stopped. But I finally got, "you look like an astronaut" from a woman at an office i had to stop at the other day. I thought, better than looking like a package of hamburger, but I just smiled and moved on.
I was asked if I wanted to buy any live chickens yesterday. I was tempted.
July 4 when I was 16, I took my boss' granddaughter for a ride to my friend's house for a party, in my mom's car. Went right off a very similar drop, luckily a stump caught the car. I fell quite a few feet when I opened my door. Had her wave down the car that was coming around the bend. It was her parents.
LOL!! Reminds me of a story my dad tells from a job he was on a number of years ago.
We're both equipment operators working in the pipe industry. He was on a job 20 some odd years ago, ditch they were digging something like 7' or so wide and 18' deep. Some drunk guy comes blowing thru the road closed signs, drove straight at the ditch....and got stuck. Front bumper on one side and back bumper on the other. Guy was so drunk that he opened the door and stepped right on out. Luckily for him they hadnt laid the pipe yet but they had put down the sand bedding so he had a relatively soft landing. Talk about that first step being a duzy....
