Because I've presently got technical incompetences with the board, password resets presently do not work automatic like.

If you have any problem logging in, please don't bother waiting and get in touch. Email right to the usual address (admin at...), use the contact form (bottom of index and most other pages), post in the Midget Circus, or message me directly on Facebook.
I should get the message within a few hours, but under rare circumstances, it might take me a day.

If you can login no problem, but you wish to avoid problem, try checking the "Remember Me" box where you login. I've meddled with the settings there, so even if you return here only once every couple of weeks, it should remember you fine. Provided you have cookies enabled.

If it won't remember you, and you want to be sure any failure to remember is actually such and not just an oops, please read the following (click the bar to make it "show").
Important infos about cookies
To be remembered, you must have cookies enabled in your browser. Some people prefer using "private" browsing mode - which precludes cookies being placed on your device in the first place.
Some people use regular browsing mode, but may have chosen to disable all cookies in their settings. Sometimes, these people will end up tearing their hair out because a lot of websites just don't work at all, like many online stores, as many e-commerce platforms don't do bugger all without using cookies.
Me, I've got "Self-Destructing Cookies" plugins in my various browsers. Which lets me accept all cookies everywhere, smug in the knowledge that they will be deleted the instant I close that browser tab. I can even set it to delete the cookies only when I close the whole browser window, which is helpful with online stores.
And I can whitelist sites like the board, so the plugin doesn't mess with those cookies at all.

And you must use the same browser, on the same machine. Unless you're using something like a cookie manager that syncs to all your devices and things, your apple browser on your ipad won't have the delicious cookies chrome has on your PC. And unless google now manages cookies between your devices (who knows what the fuck they do), even chrome on your Android won't have the same cookies as chrome on your notebook, or chrome on your other Android.

Once upon a when, we've had a data breach (maybe).
Click here if you don't know what that's about.
If you've visited the forum at any time after November 18, 2020, you will have seen the message about a supposed data breach that may have exposed passwords. I know you will have seen it because, until today, there was a big general announcement right at the top of the everything.
Seeing how it's been nearly 18 months since that, with no further alarms getting rung, and how everyone has had 758,214 opportunities to take a minute to think about the security of their passwords, I've taken that notice down.
Follow this link for all the info that has transpired about the whole mess.

You may dismiss this message by clicking the dark X in the top right hand corner. You may have to mouse-over to see it. I assure you it's there.

If it happens on the track, this is where it belongs. Also, cheesesticks and perhaps things to do with bacon.

Bitch WORLD Land Speed Millyard!

Post by DerGolgo » Sun Aug 06, 2023 10:03 am

No, the title kinda says it, don't it.
Dr. Frankenwrench himself puts the Viper bike to good use. Iirc, he built that for a sponsor, and while putting that kind of engine on two wheels and making it controllable etc. is a great achievement, to my mind, the sponsorship aspect taints it just a little. Wasn't built for the love of the game.

But no more! It is redeemed!
The Viper bike is now officially a WORLD LAND SPEED RECORD BIKE!
Turns out the ever so motorsports obsessed limeys decided theirs should be the record for... motorcycle with rider and pillion!!

Well, the category exists, the hugemongous bike exists, and the guy puts the two together. Three, if you count the pillion.

I surmise that, while perhaps not having the top speed that the number of horseponies might suggest, even with the speedier gearmongering the Millyard seems to have put in, it can still go as fast as many much smaller bikes, kilo racers and 'busas and things - but unlike them struggling weenie bikes, the bolide impact torque of that Widget of Monstrous Displacement, aka Dodge V10, lets it do its maximum speed with one, two, however many people riding bitch. And instead of a boring old streamliner fairing, they can even bring along a bit of a beer belly!

Why is this not in ¡Very Custom!:
Because it's not about the custom fabricating and enginerding going on. This one is about prepping for and running the record attempt, and that stuff goes hence, not whence.

If there were absolutely anything to be afraid of, don't you think I would have worn pants?

I said I have a big stick.
