    Parenthetically, my weapon of choice when just puttering around is still my TW200!

    Here we have Karen practicing the right way to handle a traffic stop!

    This is why I don't relate to many normal people. My wife used to drag me to her cow-orker parties and such, and the guys would stand around and talk golf. "I had such a bad day on the course yesterday, I lost four balls in the woods!" BFD! In flying and motorcycling, a bad day means YOU'RE lost in the woods...

    Just last week took ownership of my own ‘06 T-Dub……puttering indeed, but raucous fun off road!
    Got tired of riding motos that I couldn’t easily pick up.

    100%...the one I hate most is sports.

    "Didja watch the Bears game?"

    No. I was busy trying to not get killed by the most dangerous machines I could find to play with.

    I will never understand the desire to sit on your a** for three hours and watch other people play with balls. At least the golfers are out doing something and there's some challenge to it.

    My favorite is "we really beat up the Cubs last night"

    Oh really? You're on the team? Are you tired?

    I have to use this handy little guide to help me figure out what the hell sports followers are talking about: 52D25BE8-97DB-4E92-9BC4-ACFFFA06383C.jpeg

    I also just cannot fathom the dedication and fascination that many ‘Mericans have to their Alma Maters sports teams decades after leaving that school.

    Well, if you spent 4+ years and tens of thousands of dollars at an institution (and likely have some great memories/experiences there) it shouldn't be that hard to fathom, lol. It creates a sense of identity/common cause with other members of that school. It surely makes more sense than rooting for any pro sports team which shares nothing with most people other than happening to be located in their city of residence or has players on the team you admire. Tons of Chelsea/Man U fans that have never set foot on English soil.

    Yep. Did all that. Still bitter about it.

    You must be from up Nawth. Down here in the South, there are three religious denominations: the Southern Baptist Convention, the Southeastern Conference, and the Atlantic Coast Conference.

    I've spent plenty of time with machines that can kill me, and I've spent a fair amount of time diving in underwater caves and in shipwrecks, so I'm hardly the butt-sitting type. But I still love a good college football game.

    That's a gorgeous Guzzi, and I love cafe racers.

    I used to pick up my Goldwing, and were I any shorter I think I'd be syndromic. I've seen Wings picked up by girls.

    Well, I guess if my four years of undergraduate and nine years of postgraduate university association wasn’t enough to indoctrinate me into the “identity/common cause” then nothing is likely to do so.
    Besides, we all have to admit that college spectator sports is nothing more than a fund raiser from the loyal alumni.
    …..but this thread has been 7500’d enough, back to motorbikes shall we?
