What better way to test my soon to be Stealth Ninja than to go across the country?
The closest thing I have done to this is driving nonstop from Atlanta, GA to Boulder, CO or riding my bike in the Seattle to Portland Ride in a day (200 miles). Believe me what this lady did was much more significant.
has made it into a political campaign blitz and for that matter any MOron making it into a political election forum. If this is going to be allowed then please take the balance of my membership and buy what little beer you can to be shared amongst the MO Staff, because this is f#%ked. Either that or I start my own campaign using MO and posting every little tidbit of utter nonsense possible so that I can springboard my vote for Alfred E. Newman.
All joking aside...if MO doesn't do something about CaptainDumbsh#t, then I headed elsewhere to enjoy what I came to MO for--motorcycling.
I didn't even see that spoof e-mail address until you pointed it out. His post was totally on-topic.
If you're that bent about something as innocuous as that, I take it you must have already complained LOUDLY in another thread that I haven't seen about kpaul's numerous, 100% off-topic, completely political posts that he gratuitously inserts into almost every news thread, yes? If not, pray tell why?
This is so absurd that it may be a joke. If it is, you got me.
So, how impressed will all you morons be when this exhausted, caffeine-addled two-wheeled missile causes an accident? Maybe an accident that kills your kids?
The first rule of long distance riding is that you pull over and get a good night's rest when you're tired.
But these Iron Butt assholes don't care. They are absorbed in their "challenges" and "acheivements". Even truck drivers are supposed to get a set number of hours of rest every 24, and there's a reason for that.
In response to your "How impressed would you be " About as impressed as I would be if a vacationer fell asleep at the wheel trying to get to the hotel after 10 hours on the road. About as impressed as if a golfer hooked a ball through the windshield of a passing motorists car. About as impressed as if I blew out a tire on my bicycle doing a 60 mph descent down a mountain road. Not everything is sanitary and not everything need be boring. Adventure, no matter how small, is the flavoring we get to put on our otherwise dull existence. Fortunately, we get to live in a society that permits some risk taking. Michael Moore be damned, we still live in a free-ish society. Go do something challenging now before people like you make it impossible to do so.
