  • OBX~ we see scooters and motorcycles with surfboards mounted to a rack on the side daily, down at the beach.


    I bet they're happy it's virtually windless most days!

      • My husband and I are far from rich. We ARE middle managers that work our asses off, though.

          • I'm just retired and now living on a fixed income.
            If I stand any chance of becoming rich, it will be a lottery ticket, or a whole bunch of you people need to go out and buy Harley-Davidsons

              Yeah guys! She's in Vail ARIZONA, not Vail Colorado. Just your regular run of the mill hard working plebeian with mohawks, motorcycles and moxy trucking her way through the interwebs.

                    You are one of the richest people I have ever met. Maybe not in dollars, but rich nonetheless.

                    Some people are a waste of bandwidth. . . and oxygen.
                    The cost of a motorcycle is merely a down payment on farkles.

                      • One Christmas present down. My sister and I have been looking for these stoneware pots for ages. You put silverware and napkins in them and put them on the table. They are all over Germany but never for sale. Finally found that one of the local breweries sells theirs.

                        Yippee for fun gifts!

                          For OC....

                          A highway patrolman pulled alongside a speeding car on the freeway.
                          Glancing at the car, he was astounded to see that the blonde behind the wheel was knitting!
                          Realizing that she was oblivious to his flashing lights and siren, the trooper cranked down his window, turned on his bullhorn and yelled, 'PULL OVER!'

                          'NO!' the blonde yelled back, 'IT'S A SCARF!'

                          • Yesterday I ended up being lazy and riding the Vulcan 500 to work. It has been a while since I rode it more than a few miles. It's very different and not quite as I remember it when I was riding it every day.

                            I really don't like not having a windscreen. The tiny little screen on the Sprint really does get the wind off of you. I had to run up the highway 10 miles or so over lunch to pick up some paperwork from my doctor and I really felt the wind.

                            It is fun shifting gears more often. Hell I got all the way into 6th on my ride in to work! On my Sprint most of the trip to work is in 2nd and 3rd gear. And you can really wind out that little 500cc twin yet still avoid the potential for felony speeding! It really is more fun to ride a slow bike fast vs a fast bike slow!

                            I still am not a fan of the cruiser ergonomics. The pegs aren't THAT far forward, but it sure feels that way after being used to the Sprint. The ride was short enough that my back was OK, but I clearly remembered how bad it would hurt my back and butt if I rode the Vulcan more than an hour.

                            I get way more return waves from both Harley Riders and BMW riders on the Sprint than on the little Vulcan. No idea why.

                            I forgot I needed to use the choke to get it to start! I have said "So What do the letters in FINE-C mean?" enough that you think I would remember!

                            I really missed the clock and the fuel gauge!

                            Anyway, back to the Sprint tomorrow and hopefully my wife will get out on the Vulcan this coming weekend and she won't notice any of this as she will just be in love with riding, just like I was when i first got the Vulcan.

                                Truth on both accounts.

                                Missy fit in just fine when I met her out at D@DG...(I don't think any snooty rich types would fit in very well with the crew..)
