"If you think the rest of us don't feel slighted by not being included in KPaul's Holy Trinity of GPTB members"

Hey, trinity my ass. He says I'm a GPTB'er, too. No gray, no ponytail, and I ride a sportbike, but hey, it's like you said:

"I thought the only REAL requirement was not being KPaul."
Re: Not true

What's the Dark Matter like in the universe you hail from?

Have you yet to lose an argument with a wall?

Or, do you call them "wins" when the wall's interest lags?

Have you yet come to the realization that you're expostulating Physics with a Certified Buffoon(tm), in a Web-based Forum dedicated to Motorcycling?

Since we're splitting hairs here; the Kilo is a unit of "Passive Gravitational Mass", or WEIGHT in layman's terms.

The Newton is a unit of "Inertial Mass", or FORCE (comparable -- but not equal to -- lb-ft (or variously ft-lb); the SAE unit of force).

You know how to Google - look it up. I'm sure it's on Wikipedia, or some Teacher has a website on Mass somewhere. Just make sure you don't quote from


Gotta go now, Crack don't smoke itself..............

I'm the founding member of the TPTB, or Thinning-hair Pony-Tailed Brotherhood.

I'm not just the President; I'm also a Client!

I have to be my own, I guess:

I'm one O' them "longhairs", but I don't ride a Cruiser, Don't ride a "fold 'em up" Sportbike (nekkid and part-faired Standards), and my hair has yet to turn gray (but these last few days at work are takin' their toll!).
I cleared out the Shop at an NH3 Refrigeration Class one time, don't 'member what it was that caused it; probably Italian food (pasta, beef, tomato sauce and cheese - MMMM-MM!).

It was so bad, the Instructor turned on the Emergency Ventilation to evacuate the noxious fumes (it helped - a little).

Hell No, I didn't admit to that one (should've though!).
"Don't ride a "fold 'em up" Sportbike (nekkid and part-faired Standards"

Same here. Bandit 600S. I guess we're in the "More Sense Than Money Brotherhood" (MSTMB).
How many at one time? I mean, if that Christian Pfieffer cat can do the things he does with a bike, SURELY this guy can do two at once, right?
Difference between men and women......

Notice that first reference to "six inches in length (total!)", then a SHE built one up w/ 9 inch "straight pipe".....

Yeah, I know, Mind In The Gutter........

Ya but we don't get the shout out like longride, seruzawa and Buzglyd do before a GPTB rant, they must just do a better job. I can't be the only one upset by our marginalization.
LOL good one
Re: Excellent post!

So you're missing out on that whole foreign Country/adventure thing? We just point at what we want and hold out a hand full of cash, we sometimes get change back even!
I had such high hopes for you but... weight vs mass

Don't use Wikipedia go to How stuff works. In science splitting hairs matters. There is a big difference between weight and mass. Look up in physics book. Just think about that an astronaut has the same mass on the moon and the earth but his weight on each planet is vastly different.
If this guy is your retained lawyer, you might want to find another...
Re: I had such high hopes for you but... weight vs mass

Yeah, on the Moon an 85 Kilo Astronaut weighs only ~15 Kilos......
Well, exactly. You can buy an extra loud set of horns

(50 bucks) a horn relay ( 6 bucks?) and install it yourself. Even I was able to do it. Presto! Noise when you want it, no noise when you don't.
Wow. The whole point of horns is to warn someone that they are about to do something that could get somebody hurt. All other uses (Saying hi, reminding people that the light has changed, or just expressing annoyance,) are misuse of a horn. Has it gotten so bad in Houston that they just ASSUME you're being an ******* and just start shooting? I've been in Houston traffic, and I thought it had some of the most clueless cagers I'd ever seen. I had no idea that they were that hostile too.
Re: He should talk to longride about wearing a full face helmet

Isn't the riding season (for sport riders, anyway) about three months in Seattle? It won't see pavement till June.
Re: He should talk to longride about wearing a full face helmet

Put a tray under it if it's a Harley. Heh, heh. Sorry. It was just hanging there, I had to swing at it.
You got the code? Mine doesn't seem to work on carbon based life forms. (2 dogs & a wife) No ***** jokes, please.
Re: He should talk to longride about wearing a full face helmet

I think you have taken on a full time job, with no exit strategy in sight.
