Top Ten...
« on: April 10, 2018, 09:22:48 PM »
We had a similar thread on the old forum. I found one of my lists and decided to revive it. This time with a few rules: must be Motorcycle related lists, must adhere to the other standard forum rules.



Top Ten Things NOT to say to a Female Rider

10. Does that thing have a power band?
9. Is that YOUR bike?
8. How do you pick that thing up?
7. Does that thing have gears?
6. When she walks in wearing motorcycle gear and carrying a helmet: Did you ride a motorcycle here?
5. Ain't that bike too big for you?
4. Do you ride that by yourself?
3. When did women start riding their own?
2. Is that a tire gauge in your pocket or are you a Dom?
1. You wanna ride bitch?

15. "I don't use throttle return cables because I like having cruise control"
16. It's supposed to leak oil...
17. *breathing heavily an hour into ride* - sorry guys, *huff hufff* i've gotta go, wife wants me to _____..."
18. Once I port the heads...
19. I think it has cams...
20. Nah, it'll fix itself eventually

 :D Love you buddy!

In my defense well fuck, I'm still sticking to the 640 being useless when you have a specialized bike for every occasion.

The rest of them that's just me.... And Ben ride my zrx now it's a different animal to john's. You'll understand my side of the duc's luke warm reception.

 Springer's top ten ADV(ish) rules;

10. Find someone bigger and stronger than you to ride with...cause you bike will not pick it self back up.
9. Always stand on the pegs for at lest 1 block before you get to the Starbucks that everyone's meeting at. Remember, they are watching.
8. Mud is slick.
7. Rocks are hard...to go over and to land on.
6. When in doubt, turn around and go home...or to Starbucks.
5. Tree roots are treacherous and evil.
4. The trees themselves are no better. /\
3. Photoshop can make it look like you actually rode there.
2. Road grime sorta looks like dirt, so why ride in the dirt?

 And the #1 Advrider rule is;

10. Get your Starbucks membership card, that way every 10th cup is free!



 Well the sun is out, see ya'll at Starbucks.  ;)
What we've got here, is a failure to communicate.  Strother Martin as the Captain in Cool Hand Luke.
 Endeavor to persevere! Chief Dan George as Lone Watie in The Outlaw Josey Wales.
