YES!!! We need to platoon 3 of them hammer heads!
Yessir. My first build from plans, and my first large build. Still I'm pretty impressed with how well it flies and how decently it came out. Our club had a "weekend" WWI fly in that ran from Tuesday to today. Lots of chances to mix it up with Pups, the occasional Neuiport and one Camel. Like a mini Rheinbeck, but we get away with a lot more....
Do we all remember the Ram that doesn't seem to like bikers?
Well, apparently he is back, and now he has a GoPro of his own.

That is hilarious!
I've been killed by clanmates alot, but its usually at the end of matches by platoonmates hehe.
Yeah, but he splash killed himself...
The T29 popped over the ridge and I shot him from about 40 yards for about 80% hp then rammed him for another 3% , kept pushin him into the edge of the map waitin for my 2 week reload. He shot twice for NO damage, I think his barrel was sticking out the back end of my Frog SPG, went green and KKAABOOOOM took him to Valhalla wit me
So, I went for a nice long ride today on the old girl.
It confirmed two things for me.
1) I absolutely love this bike. Not the model (although it is a great mid-weight sport bike) but I have an emotional attachment to this hunk of metal. Of course, it is more to do with all the things we've done together, and the life events I've worked out while sitting on top of it, than it has to do with the machine itself. Either way I gave her a big hug as I walked awy.
2) It is time to move on. I just don't do her justice anymore. I purchased her when I was still pretty new to riding (not my first bike) and I hadn't really figured out what I wanted out of riding. I figured, "It is sexy, it goes fast, it must be fun". All of that is true, but it's time for a change.
The combination of those two things has meant that she is officially for sale.
Are you talking about your Indien Panzer or your Triumph?
I played your precious War Thunder yesterday. You were nowhere to be found. :ddog
Like a few of you, I went elsewhere for fun this weekend.
I love my bike, but I really wish I lived closer to where I am having a good time riding. 60 miles of pushing the single cylinder bike from 75 to 85 MPH on the way out, 80 to 90 mph on the way back home (traffic sped up).
Only to find that of the videos I took, the camera stopped recording after anywhere from 6 seconds to 17 seconds. Salvagable: six seconds worth, some of it sideways when I dropped the camera.

Meh, I had a real good time.
I'm up to Tier 8 in all 5 nations baby
Well Captain Ho Lee Fuk, have you got outside this week?
I played for like an hour and made it about half way through Tier 2 in the Americans.
Dave: you gotta come visit.
Colorado has 2340250852085028 miles of trails that'll blow your mind and there isn't one single alligator on any of them trying to eat you for lunch.
There is a reason I spent 11 years in the immigration system getting a US green card... and once I did I moved here
...and I can be on dirt less than 2 minutes from pulling out of the driveway
I do 30 mph on the paved roads and I don't hit 70 until AFTER I'm on the dirt
I admit.. I might have played 234502834508 hours in the past 4 days.
Geez! I've got one t8, lol.
I didn't realize you were from someplace else.
I, too, found myself more and more comfortable at speed on the loose dirt roads. I didn't realize how much I was getting used to flying along today until I got back to 'civilization' and found myself going way, way too fast (from a deputy's perspective had one seen me) on now paved roads that seemed so much safer.
I spoke to a Seminole Indian today, and actually told him that I wished I was he - in looking at the maps of where I was today, I can only imagine how peaceful it is out in the swamp in the evening and tonight.
Geek's hoser dialect is generally a dead giveaway
I am not a dirt biker, but I will make ATV's do things most people think are not possible. 80-90 on dirt is no problem for me with an ATV, but on pavement that is sketchy to me. I grew up racing dirt track, so the whole sideways action on dirt come pretty natural to me. Motorcycles are still fairly new to me as I have only been riding for a few years and that has mostly been on tarmac, with a little groomed dirt thrown in.
