    Allright, what's wrong with this picture? (Picture of the Weak)

    Picture of the Weak

    OK, which one of youse airheads is this? Airhead doesn't refer to the color of your hair or what your skull cavity is filled with.

    1. Remove you hat before putting on your helmet.
    2. Work gloves will do in a pinch, I guess.
    3. Removing the seat grab-rail doesn't necessarilly eliminate the possibility of unwanted hitch-skaters.
    4. Do you not see the need for knee-pads, elbow-pads or, for the love of mother, at LEAST gloves in this situation?
    5. If that stowaway bent that turn signal I would make him pay for it. Come on now!


    On the positive side, I love the way that the background is blurred and the riders are perfectly focused. Good photography. But then, the photographer is not ...

    Looks perfect to me.

    you do realise that this effect can be created at speeds as slow as a walking pace?
    Judging from the positioning of the clothes on the two riders, I'd say it was, too. Bravo.

    turnsignals

    turn-signals come off their notch and sag like that with very little provocation.
    easily repositioned ď㢠tighten the screw.

    I had no idea a skateboarder could push an airhead so fast!

    Exactly!!!!

    At least someone realized that I was joking!
    Lighten up, you old codgers! Do you really feel like you need to tell me how to fix a turn signal? Do you really believe that I might think that this irresponsible motorcyclist was going faster than a good trot? I can see the breeze pushing against their shirts and be able to calculate their speed from that. I just found it to be an interesting picture and was having some fun with it.

    I had a hard time telling you were joking at first.

    Do you still not know who it is?

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    The turn signal is supposed to be crooked, from hanging helmets on it. It's an Airhead thing.

    you young punks just text the dealer, have them pick up the bike and take care of it, right ?

    I know ... it's all my fault. I was feeling really feisty and was being way too sarcastic and forgot to put a smiley face on the message so that you would know that I was just being silly. Here, I'll add that for you now ...


    There, doesn't that make you giggle now?
    Apparently this is a good thing if I can get you to call me a young punk 'cause I haven't heard that since, wow, about the time my oldest BMW was made!! Now, I'm feeling absolutely giddy and I think that I will go out and tighten up all my turn signals!!!


    I'M JUST KIDDING!!! I love you, man!
    Don't be hating, much respect.
