Apparently for every Awesome, there's a *facepalm*

Every January for the past dozen or so, the Vampires Motorcycle Club out of Santa Cruz, California hosts the “Naked Ride.” It is exactly what you think it is. Several dozen riders hop on their bikes in the nude.


I mean yay for boots and helmets?

No pics.

Well, there is the title image of the article, as well hidden from prying hotlinkers as it may be.

And as stupid as it is to ride without proper gear. If you're gonna discard ATGATT, might as well go whole hog. They maintain helmets which, as the press tells us, is the single most important thing to know about anyone who rides, so there is that.

Now, I shall slip into my secret identity, to try and find a linkable version of that image.
If there were absolutely anything to be afraid of, don't you think I would have worn pants?

I probably could have done that, but I was trying to spare our sanity.

Hey, this wasn't just right-click/copy-image-address. I had to dig through the source-code to find the image URL. Lemme have my moment! :mrgreen:

I was thinking about how hot my right thigh gets in thick work pants, even through a pair of leather chaps. That would be some sizzling bacon...

They do run fuckin' hot, eh? I've seen insulation kits that fit under the heat shields to help keep it in, and I'm thinking about doing it -- after I get my GODDAMN BATTERY replaced since she wouldn't start, even right off the charger. :x :x

WTF? Is Athena whispering evil thoughts to her when they are alone in the garage?

Yeah, I dunno. I talked to the Indian guys at the IMS show and a few fessed up that they've had some problems with the batteries.

As far as Athena having her way with Lilah... I dunno what they talk about when I'm not looking, Athena's still leaking oil so hopefully that's a good sign? :shock:

Yeah, good call. I wish I'd done it sooner, might've avoided this little pickle. I just hope Indian doesn't give me any shit. If they do I'll be sure to let you know.

Ya'll ever heard of battery tenders? They are a lot like chicken tenders, but they keep your battery from getting fried.

Yup! Have one running.. just if they have a weak battery, I'd rather know now than when I am in Kansas or Colorado this spring.

Of course! Goddamn thing had the happy green light on when I got the sad "click-click" of a dead battery.
