Went into a pet shop with Lillith today to get a retractable leash for our kitten (that's another thread) and the shop owner noticed both of us had helmets, and decided to start bitching about bike riders. Started off innocently enough, tlaking about how every boy racer wants to drag you off the lights, and he said he experienced it a lot with his SLK.Anyway, then he started to bitch about how bike riders lane split. And how he has seen bike accidents, and a bike rider almost had a head on whilst overtaking him and his Merc.

The best part was when he said he could keep up with a 750cc modern sports bike to 60mph :bs: the guy was clearly deluded. Last I checked, even a Kompressor model SLK would have trouble beating any mid 80's 600 to 60mph, let alone a Gixxer 750 or MV F4S. I guess what really pissed me and Lil off was that this guy clearly felt that he would take out his motorcycle frustrations on a potential customer who happenned to ride a bike. Needless to say, he is no longer getting our business...

If the mercedes owners are anything like the ones here, they really need to get their head out of their a**. It seems they believe the hype that the campany puts out.

So first he complains about motorcycles wanting to drag race him and then later brags about how his sports car can run with a bike 0-60 (so he thinks). He sounds like a hypocrite. :thumbd:

Honda had a big advertisement for the 79 CM400T, it said it beats the Porsche 911 (I think, it was a Porsche though) in the 14 mile. and that's a 400cc standard bike over a car that will probably still beat todays Benz's. that guy needs a colonic cause he's full of crap.

Two things Z...

I think it would have been fun to pull out your wallet and grab a handful of cash, wave it around under his nose and put it back in your pocket, then leave the joint.

Second thing. Not to cause harm, but I've been wondering...
I suppose this means you did not get your pet back?

If I'm correct, I am really sorry for you.

You would be correct, the cat in my Avatar did not come home. We had a phone call about a month and a half ago now from a man claiming he found a dead cat matching his description in the gutter on the night he went missing. Even though we were out looking for him within about an hour of letting him out, it seems the man found him in the gutter and put him in a box to be picked up by the garbage collector the next day, even though we looked everywhere, I did not think to look in a box... :(

You really won "The Car at the Casino?" Cool.

Seems out here the guys with Beemers (autos) are the major a-holes. These emasculated guys in the beemers always pass me on the freeway. I am doing like 80-90, keeping up with traffic :cycle:, not doing too much passing then out of no where a beemer, 540, M3, M5, 740, Boxter, etc. will scream by me doing like 120, then swerve into the lane I am in just in front of me. I am like :hmm: I never chase these idiots down, not worth it. But guys in other sports cars don't seem to do that. Only the beemer guys. I guess compensating for genetic shortfalls is what it is all about. :D

A V4 !?!!? Really. Interesting. Never owned one with a motor that small.. and yeah.. you'd have to find a highly tuned AMG to keep pace with a bike but they do build some wicked-fast cars. :clap:

Speaking of deluded wankers, my fiancee works with a guy (suit wearing type) that rides some BMW touring bike that he claims he can beat R1's :huh:


It makes me wonder if the guy on the R1 he was racing, even realised the BMW was racing him :idunno:

the guy on the R1 was probably smart and didn't race for 2 reasons: not a really good idea onthe street and he knew he could win anyway so why bother
