Why do people who don't ride bikes always try to sit on mine?

keep it going here cowboys!

I would hope I'd never have to even draw let alone shoot anybody.

Re: Do you tough guys carry a firearm???!!!

its not fun shooting at people, and even planning and saying "well if i were..." when its actually happening, your mind tends to do other things. even if it were"self-defense", in the u.s. of a, its hard to explain shooting someone to a jury.

Keep one in the house for the unlucky intruder but no need to carry it everywhere, plus here in NY it is extremely difficult to get a full carry permit, they really only give it to you if you have a job or own a business that you have to carry LARGE amounts of cash with you.

I did many years shooting IPSC with an unmodified combat pistol.
I also spent two solid years living in the bush doing nothing but hunting and shooting.
If I were in the situation I could do the job, but I certainly don't ever want to be in that situation if I can talk my way out of it.

Never want to shoot anyone especially over something like a motorcycle but if my wife, kids or my life was in danger I wouldn't hesitate to tear another persons throat out with my teeth let alone simply shoot them if I had to. Now if someone damaged my bike I may not shoot them but they might wish I had if they don't pay for the damages.

I am really glad to see that you wouldn't shoot anyone over your bike because I plan on coming to pay your RC51 a late night visit. I miss mine and wouldn't steal yours but I would take it for some late night fun.

I agree with you 100% on that post but I still will never let anyone else ride my bike. I don't have the money to buy another one and without it I would go nuts.

Re: Do you tough guys carry a firearm???!!!

As I stated in the other thread, I do carry when I can. Trained for 23 years to do the business, including nuclear release. I won't have a problem if the need arises.

I don't go looking for trouble. I avoid it at nearly all costs. If I get put into a shooting situation it will be unavoidable.
