Not to go off on a rant here.... but it's idiot bikers like that who give those of us who ride safely and responsibly a bad name. I have a 2016 HD Sportster that I've never had above 70 (and that on the highway) and I'm proud of that.

(I was gonna attach a picture of my bike but Photobucket is being stupid.)

As a level 1 burglar, Bilbo got a pony when he accompanied the level 60 dwarves on the Smaug the Dragon raid. Those powerlevelers probably invited him solely so he could trigger fellowship attacks for them.

With a 1200cc engine it most certainly will!

I usually have to pass the packs of harleys in town... on my moped!
Most harley folks I come across don't speed, or even come close. Maybe dragging hard parts isn't fun to some folks!?
I love how every so often, any thread can suddenly become good old bike banter. Good people!

I never was much fore the bike thing... I rode a friends.. some kind of kawasaki where the back wheel stuck way out back and it was lowered.. really LOUD!!.. I remember making the tire smoke when I took off... and then the nistake I made was i looked at the speedo after I raced and beat some kind of souped up corevette... 140...

I never really rode a motorcycle much after that... I started building 500-600 HP streetrods about that time... had a lot of fun squealing the tires and making tons of smoke.. never really did get into going real fast unless I was running 1/4;s.. i suppose my best car was the 79 Camaro I finally got fast enough to run a 10.99 in the 1/4 ..

I do know I was the only Air-Conditioned car that was running 10.99..

Catch can for the condensate so i could A/C in the staging lanes....

I havent taken the school Bus to the track yet...

wouldnt that be a cool and fun time? we all show up to a run-what-ya-brung night at the track in our school busses??
