  1. Idle Thumbs Motorcycle Club

    suzuki GN250 is a safe bet. unless you're tall. then it's a terrible idea. are jap bikes relatively cheap in the US? the best bit of advice i ever ignored was: spend your money on good gear, then the rest on the bike.

  6. Idle Thumbs Motorcycle Club

    i have the cheapest crap i could find: shiro helmet and strada jacket, with a spare ffm helmet for passengers. the rest is too much to lug around all day, and i can't wear boots. anyone else feel disconnected from the bike when wearing gloves? my hands are the only part of me with a tan. Killstar - where are you headed on your mini trip?

    I once hit a full bag of garbage that was sitting in the middle of an eight lane motorway. saw it and swerved at the last minute but smacked it with my foot and dislocated a toe. had to keep riding, imagining i had lost half my foot, until the next exit. fun.

    while you're at the dealership give a street triple a test run. very different riding style but they are so much fun i lost my licence for a month last time i was on one.
  14. Have you ever fainted?

    Sounds like a hypnagogic state? They do exist. The only time I remember fainting I was on acid and had forgotten to eat all day. Terrifying.

    also, i'm back on my old lumbering oaf now (having a cbr has spoiled me) had to go two weeks without a bike and hated every day of it.

    anyone else really curious about how these would ride? "Where a gas-powered bike can generate 40 horsepower at its peak, the RedShift can put down 40 horsepower anywhere." that sounds cool.
  21. Guns and gun control

    i read a really interesting article just after the shooting exploring the idea that 'merica got democracy too early. i wish i could find it but i'll have to paraphrase: basically, most societies developed law and security under a monarchistic model, where authority was in the hands of a ruler. law and order was established and people got used to the idea of police as a state force that mostly worked in their favour. then the monarchies slowly lost power and authority/law was transferred to the people. not so in 'merica. power was taken by the people and decentralised before order had been established, and the militia mentality was built in to the founding ideals. a man and his gun was still a rational necessity in the protection of society. instead of the idea of refining the legal system, the idea of standing outside it became dominant. i don't know if i explained that too well. the problem i see is that you need a gun because everyone else has a gun. everyone else has a gun because way back when the legal power system had too many holes in it and now it's too late to take them off everybody.

    anyone else notice the weird sort of not even a cameo for zoe bell? she squints into a stereoscope and smiles and then… nothing.
