I didn't know you could do a stoppie on a Honda Cub.

This could be an effective way to counter Islamic fundamentalism.



For about same the cost as one week of the hopeless Iraq quagmire the Republicans lied America in to... we could buy every young man in the Middle East a 1000 cc race replica and a 2 Fast 2 Furious DVD.

Don't you mean "Biker Boyz" or "Torque"?

Re: Squids Transformed into Fast Peaceniks?

Cool!

And just think of the trickle-down benefits for the job market doing service for toasted clutches and tire changes, distributing replacement fairings, physical therapy....

But really, sad but true: Who would want to listen to some grumpy old fart moaning about the Zionists and jihad when you can be out racing in the desert or carving switchbacks in Kashmir?

(Better throw some dual-sports into the shipment....)

I've seen it hear in California on Interstate 80, between Vacaville and Sacramento. I was doing a truck delivery and a whole gaggle (since they migrate like birds) of some 20-30 stunters raced around 4 wheel traffic (I was doing 70 mph mind you), and in essence caused the traffic to back off (guys at the back of the pack zigged back-n-forth to scare off traffic while the rest proceeded to wheelie and balance stunts at I'm some 70-80 mhp for 5-6 miles.



They abruptly all gunned it -- I'm guessing they know cops might be coming -- and disappeared at warp 15.



I'm talking they were doing some really crazy, sick ***** which would have wowed me if I'd see in on a closed lot or unused street, but NOT in heavy car traffic at high speeds. I'm sure it was a thrill for them, but I can't say it was my proudest hour of being an avid motorcyclist, and it probably significantly tainted the image of motorcycles (and the crazy rider image) tenfold for those in cars that day. It was probably a good thing I was in a truck, or some 4 wheeler might have hit me out of spite... they all seemed either shook up, scared or pissed off. Me, I just waited to see if there was any road paste as I drove, but the stunters were obviously good. I'm down for backlot and closed street stunting, but stupid ***** like this will changed laws quickly if any of those car drivers was heading up to Sac to the legislature.

Re: Squids: They're Next Door!

Wonder what Sharia sez about that?

"In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful. Lo! We tested those who did wheelies and are before you. Thus Allah knoweth those who are sincere, and knoweth those who feign and do stoppies & burnouts.

And certainly We tried those before them, so Allah will certainly know those who are true and He will certainly know the liars. He will cut the clutch hand off of the fakir and liar who will thus not do wheelies anymore. Do those who practise wheelies, stoppies & burnouts think that they will get the better of Us? Evil is their judgment! "

Oooh, tough stuff.

Did you see that the new Senate Fearless Leader, Harry Reid, supports a "temporary" troop strength increase in Iraq? You can't buy that sort of entertainment!

"Rep. Silvestre Reyes (D) of Texas, the incoming chairman of the House Intelligence Committee... didn't know that Al Qaeda is Sunni or that Hizbullah, which fought Israel this summer in Lebanon, is Shiite. "



Yep, that's one fresh wind blowin' through Congress...



Hopefully they know where Pakistan is when they airdrop sportbikes to those puckish imps so they won't blow us up.

Oh a mighty wind's a blowin’, it’s kickin’ up the sand,

It’s blowin’ out a message to every woman, child and man

Yes a mighty wind's a blowin’, cross the land and cross the sea,

It’s blowin’ peace and freedom, it’s blowin’ equality.



From a lighthouse in Barr Harbor, to a bridge called Golden Gate,

From a troller down in Shreveport, to the shore of one great lake,

There’s a star on the horizon, and it’s burning like a flame,

It’s lighting up this mighty wind, that’s blowin’ everywhere,



Oh a mighty wind's a blowin’, it’s kickin’ up the sand,

It’s blowin’ out a message to every woman, child and man

Yes a mighty wind's a blowin’, cross the land and cross the sea,

It’s blowin’ peace and freedom, it’s blowin’ equality.

Yes it’s blowin’ peace and freedom, it’s blowin’ you and me…

"A Mighty Wind"

One of the funniest movies ever. Who knew so many of the usual suspects have so much musical talent! The DVD is a must due to the full length - and real - concert by the "stars"...

But then I'm such a sucker for anything with Jane Lynch innit...
