I qualify as a big, fat guy with a Valk, but I've only gotten the front tire up with a passenger on the back. I try to avoid putting a 1,000 pound (rider + bike) vehicle on one wheel for some strange reason.

Yet another reason to always wear a full face helmet.



Maybe the squirrels are finally retaliating for all that urban sprawl. Or they are actually sportbike fans.

mouse jousting with wild Irish women.

Reminds me of the time my wife had the bright idea to catch a mouse with one of those sticky traps. Trouble is it worked but my wife felt sorry for the mouse and tried to remove the mouse from the sticky stuff. The mouse bit here and then her fingers stuck to trap and the mouse bit her again. Now I had to use my hands to remove my screming wife and squealing mouse from the trap. I then had to put the mouse in a box to take to the wife to get tested for rabies. So a using $2.00 trap turned into a $100 vet bill. Soon after we got a cat problem solved.

I recall seeing a pic of a Valk doing a decent wheelie when they came out a few years back. But in order to do that with such a long wheelbase, it may not be able to do a roll on. More likely that the rear would light up, step out, and he would highside. At any rate, it's very unlikely that it would do 80 without a gear change. That speed in first is reserved for Hayabusas and 12R's.

And it's damn near impossible to stay on a bike that is doing any of this with one hand.



But it wasn't written to be a tech document.

Re: mouse jousting with wild Irish women.

Typical Seattle lefty.

After my kids kept poping the mouse traps, I just let my dogs have them (the mice, not the kids)

I'd rather have mice than a cat, and my dogs are good mousers

I agree. This story is hard to swallow, for several reasons, with 70mph one-handed wheelies on a Valkerie that is, as Honda crowed, "over eight feet long", being right out there in front.



He also needs to go back to flight school, because he's got being behind the airplane, and the back side of the power curve mixed up.



It's an entertaining yarn, I guess, but a little too ernest.

Re: mouse jousting with wild Irish women.

I've used those sticky traps before and encountered the same issue of what to do with mice that were trapped, but still alive. After about 2 minutes pondering my options, I put the entire trap (with mouse still stuck to it) in a large ziplock bag and delivered one swift blow to the mouse's head with the trusty old Stanley hammer. End of problem and no vet bills.

Only 13 days left!

I'm still waiting for the Suzuki "40th anniversary of the charter" and Yamaha "25th anniversary of the cruiser" parties.

I'm ready to make the pilgrimmage to these fine events.

Got any info?

Well, Maybe if he rewrote the story to be about half as long, then it would be funny. But as is I had too much time to conclude the implausibility of it. Then I felt cheated especially because I liked the first part.

Biker vs. Critter

Best one I've heard is from a buddy of mine...

Years back, he was steaming down the road, and just after an oncoming car went by, he saw something >just< before he felt a really sharp impact to his throat, just at the top of his sternum.

He reached up to feel, then looked down at his hand. It was covered in blood!

He says he thinks he "screamed like a girl", and immediately made for the shoulder of the road.

When he got stopped, he got a good look at what was what.

Which was a significant amount of blood and... feathers!

The figure was a she, she was shapely, and she was nude.

The squirel was a good story, but now this story, by the same author is a GREAT STORY.

He'd better stay the f*ck away from screenwriting if that other story is the best he can do, dialogue wise:



"I do not wish to disrupt your plans, but I need a ride to the lake if you please"



"The last thing I need is for the police to show up. A very few may understand, fewer still would help. Most are just school-yard ruffians"



"I have no money with which to pay you "



"The Dragon is she? She is gorgeous." She eyes me critically for a moment. Nods. "She suits you."



"I know not. Anything. Anywhere."



"Come in if you would like." She whispers. "It would be my honor and pleasure."



And then she peeled off her silicone face and revealed herself as a fembot. She climbed under my half closed face mask and started knawing off my nose...

Re: Only 13 days left!

If there are going to be babes and beer then I don't care if they are celebrating "Hodaka, A Modern Legend."

At least neither Suzuki nor Yammerhammer are going to celebrate by providing only two septagenarian clog dancers for entertainment. Heck, they might even bring over some of those delectable Japanese umbrella girls and a load of Asahi Beer! Hubba hubba!
