    Is that the Coke or the Viagra shipment you were expecting?

    Shhhh! Those go in the spare tire of Tacomas coming up from Tijuana, which is why Toyota moved 100% of Tacoma production to Tijuana for next year.

    One of the reasons I don't ride motorcycles any more... had too many close calls...
    too many idiots on the road and only getting worse.

    Even got T-boned on my first bike by a person running a red light,
    flipped in the air a couple times flying over the car and slid about 20' .
    Thank god I had studded palms in my gloves or my hands would have been destroyed in that slide.
    Had a a real nasty case of road rash on my thighs though,
    Bike was obliterated.
    I never saw the car coming, but witnesses said I jumped right before it hit.
    I must have jumped because the area where my right leg was,
    was where the bumper of the car impacted and blew the engine apart.
    I remember clutch discs and oil on the ground a long way from where the bike was,
    I was pissed, my first bike, and had just paid for a new rear tire and a tune up, not 30 mins before that.
    Of course what did I do with the insurance money?
    Much bigger and faster bike, Lol


    Lol I recognize that street...
    in fact I went through that exact spot about 1 1/2 hrs after you.... Same direction...
    :spy:

    that's heart wrenching to hear about the bike, i'm sure it treated you well
    but a bigger and faster bike means louder pipes, and we all know what loud pipes means.

    Loud pipes save lives!
    :bikewheelie:

    and you probably do recognize the road, as you apparently have driven on it approximately 1 1/2 hours after i had! :cookiemonster:

    I always get asked why i dont ride street bikes because i use to race motocross.
    This is the exact reason. Its not if you get hit but when. To make things worse the person in the car has nothing to loose compared to you on the bike.

    At least in motocross its my own doing and everyone on the track has just as much to loose as i do.

    Sounds kinda funny but I’m scared of cars on the road but have no problem throwing myself 70 feet sideways 4th gear tapped lol

    What was the consensus on GMRS radios? I know there were a few recommendations quite a while back. What are you using and what do you recommend?

    I came up on an accident once where a CBR 1100 had almost cut a small car in half,
    all you could see of the bike was the rear tire sticking out the side of the car by about 4".
    Car driver got a broken arm and the bike rider was wearing leathers and had flown over the top when he hit, just had a couple bruises.

    In just a couple years riding on the street and track
    I had a lot of near misses.
    Some friends did not miss.
    200 km/h is safer on a track than 40 on the street.
    People are inattentive idiots in cars.
    With cellphones now.... might as well be bugs bunny in a munitions factory.



    Yeah it seems in motocross you get hurt more often, but not as bad as street riding.
    I've scared the crap outa myself a few times as a teenager on dirbikes...
    You know those moments...
    I'm gonna make it...
    Oh shit it's farther than I thought...
    Nope, not gonna make it....
    This is gonna hurt....
    BOOM, tires, dirt, goggles, legs.sky, dirt...

    Lots of us use this pair. They go on sale cheaper
    Cobra ACXT645 Walkie Talkies 35-Mile Two-Way Radios (Pair) https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01CTUIUFK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_AlHrEbNZMKS87


    Really convenient since you can charge them directly by micro usb. No need for a base can leave them plugged in the whole time

    I run a pair of motorolla talkabout T402 (the orange/yellow one) and i think @sorgon82 also runs a similar model, i think it was the T280 or something. Both also charge via usb power or swap in 3 AA batteries if you're in a pinch

    Pretty sure it plays nicely with the cobra

    That would have been a sight to see, lucky no one was killed with an impact like that.

    ohhh ya I’ve had a couple broken bones thanks to mx and almost all of them was because i was doing something stupid that i shouldn’t have been doing.
    One of my buddies i ride with all the time has been riding longer than me and has never broken anything but has hit his head a few times.
    Pretty scary when you come up to him sitting in the middle of the track and he has no idea where the truck is or if he came with anyone or what his plans are for the rest of the day

    I found these vintage Fox gloves on kijiji and paid $20 for them, they are very thin leather and I wore out part of the thumb from engaging the blinker and one finger from clutch.

    I love these gloves, never seen any with studded palms before I found these beauties.


    I risk my life all summer and drive my bike :devil:

    I've been riding for 36 years and been lucky enough not to engage with many cars, except for being T-boned when I was 17 on a 400 Honda.
    Lady at a stop sign started to go, then stopped at the first lane of a 4 lane road. I thought she saw me, but just snuffed her manual TA car...
    She then proceeded to tromp it and hit me broad-side.
    I put my foot on her hood and jumped.
    Landed on my feet on the median (I was in the center lane).
    She was a mess after hitting me, so I didn't freak out on her.
    Insurance put the bike back together and I wrote it off in a parking lot in Milton the following year, going way too fast around a corner.
    Again, landing on my feet and watching the bike tumble into oblivion...

    That was the last of my stupid shit, other than going into a speed wobble on my GS1100, racing a Supra Turbo on the Expressway in Kitchener (I won BTW).

    I ride a little more sensibly now and sold my Kawi Z1000 to resist the temptation to use the 3" 0-60 at every chance... 6 other bikes in the garage ATM.

    Look exactly like mine except mine were all black. :thumbsup: Excellent gloves!

    I'm amazed they are not real common in the bike shops (I don't dare go into a bike shop anymore or I will have a bike lol)

    Those studs looked like they had been pushed into a grindstone after my little slide.

    I'd love to get another GSXr750 but I know that I'd get major tickets and stunt driving charges in the first week lol.
    Thought about building a nasty rat bike, but have so many other things on the go... and after crotch rockets it's hard to "settle down".
    Always hear the call of the road though, it never leaves your blood.

    OMFG

    HOLY CRAP

    I just realized....

    You just called the stuff I used to use back in the day VINTAGE. :annoyed:

    I lost my license twice for speeding related tickets by the time I was 19. Think I had something like 25 or 30 tickets.
