What [email protected] it tok to travel 136mph with those tires and no brakes. No Joe Rocket jacket, No Arai helmet. Jeeeez.



Too bad he did it on such old technology. Certainly a Ninja would have been a better choice for his speed runs. There were Ninjas back then weren't there? The Japanese did invent motorcycles, right?

Back then we didn't have thousands of tax funded do-gooders to intefere with any sort of progress. We also didn't have OSHA and the EPA to deny him a permit to build and test his ideas.

Actually the Germans were very clever with mechanics. Too bad that they twice decided to try to rule the world by military means. If they'd stayed with what they did best, technology, they may very well today have been the world's preeminent industrial power.

Re: Navel Arms Race

With Clinton's New Look Military it did become a Navel Arms Race. But no one had sexual relations.

Nowadays they are too exhauted from stupid foreign deployments to care one way or the other.

It's all in the viewpoint. Many of us don't give a crap what Old Europe (the font of fascism, nihilism and a whole host of other planetray ills) thinks about us. Being hated by the likes of Germany and France is a badge of honor.

With the growth of fascistic ideas that more and more dominate both major political parties I'd guess they may actually be saying that before too many more decades are out.

Oh yawn. Europe's love affair with centralized state socialism guarantees it's inevitable downward spiral into irrelevance.



When Atlas shrugs it won't be pretty.

I think we need new motorcycle content on this website before we devour each other.
