Just because you can afford it, doesn't mean you know how to ride it
YouTube - leroy gets a new harley

Why shouldn't a large sportbike be your first bike?

Just because it looks cool, doesn't mean you won't eff it up as soon as you drive it off the lot...oh, and zip up your damn jacket, otherwise it won't do crap for you.

If you are going to perform some stunts...maybe you should try it out on an old beater bike and not your new Suzuki.

If you ever lose control of your bike, make sure you let go of the freakin' handle bars, ok?

Remember, watch the road AHEAD of you and not at your foot.

And lastly, I can not stress enough, take the motorcycle safety course. It will teach basic riding principles. It may not make you road ready, but you won't end up like this r-tard.

I agree. I just couldn't help the memories from the SV site when someone would manage to sneak that in.

It's an "old one" on the HawkGT List as well. Of course, the joke is about the (hack, spit!) SV.

(which really is a good bike - it's a HawkGT, only newer and with different flaws)

(and 12 more horsepower, stock. 16 for the 2nd-gen SV)

My Dad did that parking lot wheelie/crash thing with the Kaw W2-650SS I bought in Japan. Except he hit a chain link fence. I explained to him very clearly that it had a lot more power than the old Henderson4 he rode as a young man, but would he listen? Nooooooooo.

Yeah, Seruzawa's father was a Boeing engineer. He was the lead ashtray engineer on the Boeing 247. :)
Actually he spent the war in New Mexico maintaining the Beech Twin aircraft that they used to train bomber pilots. He had his orders for the Pacific in July 1945. Luckily for him Hiroshima and Nagasaki eliminated the necessity of invading Japan. My parents had no patience with the idiots who still like to second guess what happened back then.

Yeah, but back then - "Ashtray Engineer" actually MEANT somethin'! Back then, they Engineered things for heft, built 'em to last, cast them suckers from Bismuth-alloy an' then freakin' Chrome-plated 'em for Beauty.

You didn't hear 'bout somebody hijacking a plane to freakin' Cuba...... or crashing one into the tallest building the Capitalist Satan had in town (Arlo's IGA Grocery and All-Night 8mm-film rental) - Hell No!

And you wanna know WHY? I'll tell you Why! - If some kockamamie fargin' icehole jumped up on an Airplane and started screamin' and wavin' a gun or knife around, you stubbed out your cigarette, detached the ashtray from the seatback in front of you, and brained that Crazy Sum-bum-an-inch with it because he was spoilin' your view down the front of your Stewardess' blouse with all his rantin' and ravin'.

Hell, I heard that once the Atomic Age finally hit full-swing, Boeing was considering making ashtrays from spent-uranium just to make 'em heavier (and 'cuz the Gub'Mint was givin' that crap away - can't beat "Free"). As a bonus, you wouldn't even need a lighter - just hold the bidness-end O' the cig up-against the ashtray and; VOILA! Sucker was Lit...............

Then some Spook thought-up Yucca Mountain, blew that plan all to Hellandbegone.

Nowadays, Ashtray Engineers just make the crappin' things outta Plastic, if they even bother earnin' their pay to DESIGN one in the FIRST darm-place............

Tell me about it. I never understood how people argued against it. More people would have died, on the Japanese side alone, if the ground attacked would have been carried out.

I forget how many millions were projected to have been killed if we would have been forced to invade.

Very few argued against it at the time. The arguments are the usual Monday morning quarterbacking conducted by the armchair warriors and ivory tower academics who have never held real jobs.

The military estimated a million+ Allied casualties to take the entire mainland. That's probably a conservative estimate considering that only about .001% of Japanese troops surrendered during the island campaigns. The Japanese were training women and girls to charge the Allied troops with spears to take advantage of the American troops' reluctance to fire on women and children.

We did what we had to do, I've seen a number of interviews of Paul Tibbits on the History and Military channels and he doesn't offer a shred of remorse or apology nor should he.

It's all well and good now to say we pushed the Japanese into it with oil embargo's but the reality is they attacked us. They started a war with us and lost..would it have been more humane to keep napalming their cities till they quit? I guess it would have kept Boeing busy building B29's for a few more years.

Yes. We certainly were a bunch of meanies to cut off oil to Japan and interfere with their aims to occupy China and the entire Far East. How dastardly to oppose their racist expansion policies.

That evil ol' USA! LOL!

Pshaaw....They weren't racist expansion policies, they were merely trying to create a Greater East Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere, administered by Imperial Japan of course, for the benifit of all Asians........a trading block if you will, where China, Korea, Malaysia, Burma, Indochina and the Phillipines were encouraged to give Japan all their resourses in return for allowing them to live and work as virtual slave labor under the watchful and benevolent eye's of the Imperial Japanese Army and their puppet administrators.

Clearly we had no business interfereing with that...
