    Yeah, that was great! What about that one part in that state where there was that thing? That was awesome :clap
























    Anyone who's interested in trying to get on board with the next one, keep an eye on the website for a new page that will allow you to fill out an application on line. Be aware that it is first come/pay first served with only about 30 spots available per year. Veterans take priority, with good friends and families next. Honestly, if you have just recently joined ADV and have very few posts and don't know anyone who has done The KotW, and have very little racing/long distance riding experience, or don't know one of the organizers personally, you will most likely not get in. Not to say that there aren't other ways of getting in.

    This is not a race and not sanctioned, but is a very tight knit group of riders who like riding long distances and testing their own limits, while enjoying great food, drink and fun. :clap But let's face it, when you get a bunch of type A's together and give them anything with wheels and a place to go, well you know what happens. :evil

    Holy Shit! Jesus fucking Christ. Put a hat on or something. Never, ever take a photo like that while the sun is up. Give us a break for fuck's sake. What a reflection!

    Apparently, there are just over 750,000 bad spots:

    "Marijuana possession remains one of the major reasons people are arrested in the United States, according to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report for 2011. Last year the police made just over 750,000 arrests just for marijuana. That translates into one marijuana arrest every 42 seconds in America. While this is a slightly drop from 2010 this remains an unacceptable statistic.
    Effectively half of all drug arrests in the county last year were for marijuana. An overwhelming 87 percent of these marijuana arrests were simply for possession.


    Marijuana possession alone accounts for just over five percent of all the arrests made in the America last year. By comparison, there were only just over 500,000 arrests for all violent crimes combined."

    If 750,000 is 5 percent of all arrests. And 500,000 is for all vient crimes, that's 8 percent total. What the fuck is the other 92 percent for? DUI? Robbery? Sex with a hot teacher?
