VD's New Ride

For some time now Dave has been looking for a new ride. I know he’s been doing a ton of research trying to find just the right one. Mileage was his biggest concern. It has to get great MPG’s for those cross-country trips. Well, a while ago my phone rings (the private, unlisted disconnected one). It’s Dave. He sounds really excited. I asked him; “Dude, did you just get laid or something?” “No” he said. “I just found the perfect bike. You gotta come check it out!”

So I head down and check it out. When I get there he’s sitting, staring at it. I look at it and say; “Damn, that’s not even a bagger”. “Yea I know” Dave says. “But it gets 200 miles per gallon, has a 10 speed transmission and check out that custom chrome exhaust”. I got back on my bike and left. I just didn’t have the heart to tell him the truth. I have a suspicion that a few more of those fat cells just busted.



(Note: This is all BS. Dave would never get a new ride without a stereo!)

Let's set him up with an MP3 with industrial velcro so he can zip it on and off the tank. He might be happy then?

That's one hell of a cool bike...A gut at work has one of them..It's a made in China engine and has been running it for a couple of years with no problems..whatsoever...Hey don't knock it...this is taking us back to the original motorbikes...lol
But I can understand why you got on your bike and left...the shock was just too great to bear..It's just like discovering your best friend is gay and can't stay in the closet any longer

I believe this is a cry for help from Dave. Either that, or he had a psychotic break. Help him, WillyD!!!

That's about my speed right now.

These kinds of posts are some of my favorites! I like the bike...granted, it would be hard to keep up with the bikes my friends ride...

Thank you, I've smiled this morning...and it was good!

Thanks for the laugh! I'm grinning from ear to ear!

Dean "D-Day" said...

Oh, I don't know...

Looks right up Dave's alley to me.

B.B. said...

LMAO! I love the picture of him staring at it longingly. (Is that a word?)

Hey, I really did like that thing, and hell yeah I would get one just to dink around with.

That thing was just damn cool. If I can't get my hands on a project bike then I'm gonna do this deal.

Harley started out that way...yeah, think about it.

It might be ok with a little more chrome on the rockers...

Willy D said...

mq01: What? I can’t hear you. Your pipes are too loud!

KT: I think a velcroed on stereo would be perfect on that.

Baron: Does the guy at work ride it back and forth to work? Hell of a gas saver.

Ann: I’ll get him started on tranquillizers right away!

Mastercheif: That thing will do about 45.

chessie: Glad I could start your day with a smile:)

Mr. M: Laugh? It’s not funny. Dave’s got to ride that thing. In public!

“D-Day”: Good place for it. Hide it in the alley.

B.B.: If you say it’s a word, it’s a word.

Dave: I’ve got a Schwinn and a chainsaw. Lets do it.

kathy: I’m not sure chrome would help one bit.

I know sometimes we all like to get back to the basics...but this may be a bit too far. It's definitely not for a bell-bottoms person.

The local cops let you guys park your iron on the sidewalk? Wow. Out here that is verbotten, unless you're a motorcycle cop of course.

Willy D said...

“Joker”: Maybe it is too basic. Fenders and a sissy bar?

No parking tickets..yet. I’m sure some rookie will want to make a name for himself someday.

(What’s the www for your political blog?)

I like it! Kind of a do-it-yourself version of the 60's mo-peds.

Baron's Life said...

Willy, actually yes, the guy rides it back and forth to work everyday...roughly around 33 35 miles each day... and he's still happy with it and around here you don't need to license it because it is considered a limited speed moped.

Willy D said...

Canajun: But in the 60’s people didn’t drive as nutty as they do now.

Baron: I think here it’s under 50cc’s you don’t need a helmet or license.
