Motorcycle Stuff
Posted by: Dale Franks on Tuesday, November 06, 2007

After saving money for five months, I finally managed to scrape up enough to do the modifications I wanted to do on my bike. Since it's pretty much off topic, I won't discuss it here, but I covered it on my motorcycle blog. Here's a comparison, though:

BEFORE
My stock Harley

AFTER
My newly modified Harley

On a somewhat related note...

Five months ago, when I was driving my Ram 2500 every day, I used think that some drivers needed their drivers license revoked. Now, after five months of daily commuting, street and highway, on a motorcycle, I think that a significant percentage of drivers should be fed into a wood chipper like Steve Buscemi in Fargo.

Sometimes, it’s enough to make you wish for a pair of those rockets Chuck Norris’ team had mounted on their bikes in Delta Force.

Also, the pipes make a much deeper, bass rumble,
May someone with a similar setup, sit outside your home and constantly blip the throttle until you go postal.....

Unfortunately, we have to share the road with the drivers we’ve got. No more motorcycles for me.

I’d be satisfied if we could just get people to pass on the left and then move back to the right on the Thruway. The Germans can do it, why can’t we?

And I thought it was just my state.

Fear. When you KNOW that some frustrated astronaut will be running up your backside at 100mph or so, all but the mentally impaired will get out of the way, and their much stricter licensing requirements keep those off the road. Except for tourists.

Immigration and diverse cultures in the US play a part.

LOL. Leakage from another thread?

Yeah, in a sense (since I was thinking about it).

I remember reading somewhere about differences in medical costs in the US vs Canada due to higher US auto accident rates, and I’m also familiar with Mexican driving vs US driving.

Hmmmm. Sounds like fodder for the thread on socialized medicine—one reason the US spends more on medical treatment is because we are rich enough to afford cars/motorcycles/etc.? You don’t need generally life support ambulances, CCUs, trauma centers, etc. if your water buffalo crosses the center line.

Why? I got the pipes I did because they were deeper-sounding. Not louder. If ’d wanted loud pipes, I could certainly have gotten them.
