I can hear the singing now:

We are the mods.
We are the mods.
We are the, we are the, we are the mods.


While the average "neo-mod" will ride a 400, Sting will be on a 650 (when he's not working as a bellhop at the local hotel). :wink:

Maybe. Seen some cool, some not. :?

No. Boring. Part of the "see me - I'm like everybody else" scene. :roll:

Ape Hangers

Once, I found an old Shadow Spirit. (Honda chopper type bike). I
thought I would fix it up for a quick sale. (Ur not getting me on
that thing) I was very surprised that the tall, curved bars were
just right for my tall torsoe. For the first time, my shoulders weren't hurting. It was fun seeing the engine throbbing away under the peanut tank. The easy cadence of the motor put me at ease. The long forks
made the whole thing stable as a freight train. The whole thing worked. I still sold it, but it was a lesson in riding. You don't always
know what to expect with different bikes.

Sometimes a little customization really helps some riders. (Like
lowering the bike for short people)

:lol: Hey, they grew up, but their scooters didn't. Still stuck in the '70s!

Quadraphenia, the Sequel: Prune Juice and Petrol :p

Nobody better do that to a Burgman! There's no need to gild a lily, nor a reason to chrome-plate a masterpiece of engineering. :wink:

OK. You made me look. Gross!!!

Although the idea of having five trumpet horns hanging off the side is somewhat intriquing.... "Beep" doesn't get much respect... I'd love to install a horn system that would cause momentary heart seizure...

Riding through Kansas City on my way back from Scootercade was awful. It was Friday rush hour, and people were tossing their four wheelers from lane to lane with utter abandon. Three times, I correctly anticipated that someone was about to swing into my lane and hit me. I got on the horn while braking. Beep. The result? They threw ME the finger for being in their way! I want to be able to SCARE those jerks. Maybe I'd like two horn buttons. One for "Hi there" :p , and one for "You are about to DIE you idiot!". :twisted:

Nope - no matter how many horns or how loud the prats in the cages remain insulated and feel 100% safe to give you the finger.

I have thought long and hard about this:

Some sort of powerful waterpistol loaded (pointing rearwards) with brake fluid - catch up, cut in front and fire 0.5 litre of bf over their hood (great paint stripper).

Or more cowardly and technologically challenging - select 'ARM' wait for the growl in yer helmet speaker and then release the Sidewinder!! :twisted: :twisted: :lol:

I'm old fashioned...I just prefer to carry a baseball bat. A friendly *tap* on the windshield/hood/roof of the cage trying to share my lane will get the drivers attention. :twisted:

A little story I once heard... Don't know if it is true - supposedly it was.

A rider is at an intersection on his motorcycle waiting for a traffic light to change. Light changes, and as he is putting his bike in gear, an impatient dude in a small Volkswagon behind him starts blaring his horn and actually tapped the rear of the motorcycle with his bumper.

Bike rider has seen this car before - daily commuter probably. Next day, bike rider shows up at the intersection in his dump truck, equipped with a plow. Waits for the Volkswagon, and positions himself behind it. Drops the plow, and as soon as there is a break in the cross traffic pushes the Volkswagon, brakes locked and tires squealing, clear through the intersection. :twisted:

Why wait for the break in the cross traffic? :twisted:
