I had to laugh and laugh the last time we went down to Moab. They have guest registers at the National Parks and these registers are full of wacky commentary from easterners (especially from Florida)... "ban motorcycles and ATVs", etc. etc. We see large numbers of these people in their gas guzzling V6 Monteros and 4Runners with their bicycles on top heading into the Slick Rock. Moab has become such a popular destination for the granola crowd that you'd think you were in San Fransisco. They even have head shops.Actually, how many of us could afford a motorcycle on what this woman earns a year? I use mine for daily transportation to save money on fuel, and as a "bonus" - consume less energy resources. But what percentage on this BB do the same? Not that I'm knockin' you if you don't - but the majority of the U.S. sees motos as "toys".
We should be lauded by the Eco-Nazis as fellow Planet-Savers, but they detest us worse than they do the SUV-drivers (which is only natural - as the worst of these hypocrites are "Jet Setting" from one SUV to another, then to their 6900 sq.ft. home that costs a Mint to keep temp-controlled year 'round).
This woman views a motorcycle as a tool and labour-saving device. Imagine the benefit she would reap from something as small as a CL100 or even a Honda Cub? But then, she would probably be Murdered for it, like her Husband.
They don't seem to see the irony in driving around in V6 SUVs with anti oil company signs on their cars.""ban motorcycles and ATVs", etc. etc. We see large numbers of these people in their gas guzzling V6 Monteros and 4Runners with their bicycles on top heading into the Slick Rock. Moab..."
Do they have that 'No War for Oil' bumper sticker like Sarnali has on his???
**** off, that's only on the Range Rover...I have a "Four More Wars" sticker on the Explorer....Do they have that 'No War for Oil' bumper sticker like Sarnali has on his???
It's 5PM in Florida already?So this guy is in your house and he says "hey, I think I smell smoke. It's pretty strong!" And you say: "There you go AGAIN. Always talking about that stupid smoke. You damn liberals...we're just going to ignore you and stay right here on the couch watching teevee. Nothing to see here, just move along, everything is fine, go away, you're blocking the teevee."
My friend gets 20 max on the highway because the carrying capacity is so bad that he has to tie crap on the roof rack. And the fuel tank is so small that he has to carry a couple of 5 gal gas cans when we go into the desert. To top it off the rear latch froze last year and there is no manual release so he had to load it through the back doors. No. 4Runners don't impress me at all. Especially since it seems to go into the shop fairly regularly to fix the various fancy gadgets that fail.Hey, my wife got 18 around town and 24 on the hwy in her 4runner. I replaced it with an "ultra low emissions vehicle" that's getting 15 around town and that is during break-in.....no hammer down mode. We'll see how the Honda Pilot does now that it has the 600 mile go ahead and drive it clause.
