It's a friggen motorcycle, it's not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The windnoise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you shit your pants every now and then. Suck it up. -- Scary Gary MC

Thanks for showing your nic of the woods, Cap !
02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

Be careful of the words you say.
And keep them soft and sweet.
For you never know from day to day.
Which ones you'll have to eat.

From home to the office.

And where are the mini taxis, 10 car pile-ups, red flashing traffic lights, metro cops hiding behind a graffiti-ed wall, arid smell from 30 000 exhausts, etc etc.

Ag nee man!  You should sommer be for showing this video clip.

That is just wrong.  >:(

I wish i had a helmet cam and then film my commute.
But i would need some serious space for the upload.. Just like Watty says: Taxi's, pile-ups, etc.
I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are missing!
