That's no way to stand your ground.

We can be highly volatile at times...apology accepted.

Dan, what kind of motorcycle is that? I want it.

By Anonymous Molly Bennett, at 8:47 AM  

You're asking me? I haven't a clue. I would say it's a big loud annoying one. Kidding.

By Blogger dan, at 8:57 AM  

don't back down, dan. motorcycles suck. they are loud, dangerous, and completely unnecessary. as are scooters, mopeds, and those lame-ass tricked out power razor scooter things that the kids ride on these days. oh, and those ridiculous micro cycles. i hate those. and i've seen ones smaller than this. they are just ridiculous. that's my opinion, and i'm stickin' to it :)

That was by far one of the most amusing debacle of a debate I've seen in a while.
Good times!

Well Hunny Bunny, some of us think you're loud, obnoxious and completely unnecessary.... You are just ridiculous. That's my opinion, and I'm stickin' to it :)

I second Jake's post.

Honey Bunny is entitled to our opinion.

Don't hate the player Honey Bunny, hate the game.

Oh, and I think there is one thing more dangerous than motorcycles. That would be ignorant opinion, much like the opinions that you are displaying for all the world to see.

bikers are nothing. try pissing off DJs.

By Blogger Alex Blagg, at 6:34 PM  

or try pissing off Star Wars fans!

Now there's a post that would be just hillarious. What is it with star wars and people getting insanely worked up to the point where they dress up in costume and run round with cardboard rolls making lightsabre noises.

I really enjoyed the three star wars movies when I was a kid. I even had a star wars book. Yep, I like the movies, but if I go to the new one, I'll be wearing jeans and a tshirt, maybe a jacket depending on the weather.

And more than likely the only time I will utter the words use the force, or lightsabre will be when I am cracking a joke to my wife about sex.

Are peoples lives that sad that they have to wrap themselves up in a science fiction story for comfort?

Our lines are open...

May I add my 2?
I'm a 37 year old wife, mother of two, communications specialist, and a biker. My husband is 49, father of two, police officer, LTC in the Army, and a biker.
I can go both ways on this debate. I have also cussed the bike in the parking spot so I make sure my husband and I park our bikes so you can see the bike before you start to turn into the spot.
I make my husband start his bike up outside of the garage (we live in the country - no neighbors to bother) so the pipes don't rattle the windows in the house. Two of the guys we ride with wear earplugs because their bikes are so loud. Puh-lease. Got extra plugs for us?
My husband has been run off of the road twice in the past few months by people in cars who didn't see him. Both times he was on a touring bike complete w/touring pack and saddle bags and as many lights as we can get on the danged thing so people can see him!
My kids are not allowed on the bikes unless they have a helmet on. My 14 year old son and I recently completed a basic motorcyle course and they don't even allow you on the bikes unless you have all of your protective gear on. Wear your helmet people! Trust me. The wind through your hair feels good, but the wind through your brain, not so much.
Motorcycles may suck to some people, but SUVs suck to me. Talk about large, dangerous and completely unnecessary... I saw one back up the other day and his bumper went totally over the top of the hood of the car behind him. I try my best to not park anywhere near one of those monsters. Trying to crane my neck clear to the rear window of my car to see around the darn things when backing out is the pits. They should have special SUV parking out in the north 40 and leave us small and mid-size car drivers to park safely.
But hey, that's just me.
I may not agree with what you are saying, but I will defend your right to say it.

Wow! That wound up being more like $1.43!

By Anonymous sherrypg, at 10:59 AM  

Oh man, sherry - will you.... wait.... you said you were married already, didn't you? Damn.

By Anonymous Jimmy, at 11:28 AM  

I hate SUVs just as much as I hate Motorcycles, but I'm not posting about that because I've taken a beating this week already.

To Molly Bennett:

I know this is way late, but the bike is a Suzuki Volusia. That's the bike I own (except all black). It's a really nice ride.

By Blogger civilwar, at 1:10 PM  

Motorcycles are for shitbrains with low self esteems.

I hear those engines go by my apartment every the dirty, unshaven, pot-bellied drivers unecessarily rev their engines...compensating for their flacid phalluses.

Granted...they are fun to pilot...but for Christ's sake...there is no need for that God-awful noise pollution.

And what's up with the leather bound fucks from suburbia reclaiming their manhood? Pathetic.

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 7:27 PM  

Im a biker, and im glad that people dont like bikes. Looking at the state of society, i think the last thing i want is the acceptance of every know-it-all out there. So one big burnout for all the bikers in the world, and a big thankyou for all the nimby twats who just make my day.
