I thought Foster's was Austrailian. Labetts and Moosehead are Canadian.. I like Guiness and Henry's so that would probably disqualify them from the GPTB. I think sarnali is an infiltrator for the [email protected] I think longride is right it has to be from Milwaukee. Perhaps sarnali has lived in the blue state too long....Perhaps blue staters are excluded from the GPTB ..oopps I crossed the line. Sorry.
@Highwayman's term for groups like squids, Japensese sportbike riders, or the 600 SS club.
"Macho, Macho Maaaan. Oh I've GOT to be a macho man!..."
I'd look pretty studly with "biker" stirrups, arm chaps and leg chaps.
Do I have to wear pants, too?
Man, you guys just wait til I get the Honda Metropolitan back from Paul, Sr and Jr. I'll be the machoist man in town.
On a more serious note....at the ATL version of the Cycle World bike show...as usual...not tooo much action around the cruisers, but lots around stuff more interesting. Too bad it does not indicate a useful trend.
"It is impossible to brew enough beer in Australia so that you would have any left over for export."
Good point. I like Fosters too... that makes it a poor choice for the GPTB as well. Maybe you guys should endorse a beer and get some seed money for your big party at Laguna Seca...You guys could be in a beer commercial with your arm chaps and leggings with your flowing tails..... riding off into the sunset with some wench on the back holding your beer....
Gee, My solution would have been to wear pants that fit! His pants blow over his knees??! I wear Dockers to work (and course riding pants over them 90% of the time), and have never had them blow over my knees, or over my boots for that matter.
A quick reading of the GPTB Rule Book shows that Chapter 8, Subsection (c) states it is allowable to wear the stirrups, arm chaps, and leg chaps without pants. However Subsection (d) states that for all who wear the sacred GTPB uniform sans pants, the EZ leaker is mandatory attire. VWW
So what, exactly are the criteria for membership in the GPTB? I take it that having a GPT has nothing to do with it. From the cack on the MO boards I surmise that Buzz, Longride, Sarnali and myself are somehow involved and that Dale wants in badly enough to dress like a member of the Village People and buy us beer. Somehow I think that any club that would have all of us as members is maybe something I would have to think about joining anyway. Oh yeah, and I nominate Fonzie too.
So is GPTB merely a state of mind or does it have a physical manifestation? Are there dues? Wassup?
I'm surprised you don't know this. The term Grey Ponytail Brotherhood was invented by Kook. His use of it as an insult became generalized to a point where he had pigeonholed everyone in the world who enjoys riding anything except a Racing Replica as a GPTB member.
Since we know that you ride dirt bikes you are qualified to join. In fact, you have been drafted. Speaking of drafting, you now owe all members an initiation fee of a keg of their favourite draft.
Welcome! I'll take Squatter's Pale Ale. Thank you.
