94 Waveblaster.
I don't ride street bikes anymore. Not because I don't want to but it's pointless here. The roads are all flat and straight. There's no twisty country roads. It's uncomfortable because it's about 1000 all the time and drivers are way too aggressive.
It's not the same but my blaster is the only sit down JetSki ever made that turns by leaning in like a motorcycle. (Not counting standups or the Sea-Doo HX which didn't last very long). And the best part is when I fall off It doesnt hurt.

You could use that to hunt things in the sea ......... ie. For a sea hunt

or as we here don't like to waste letters ....... a "C unt"

So in fact it is you who rides a ...... c unt!


I have a seadoo 3d dx in my possession at the moment ....... I, d suggest you try one of those.

It has gokart seat so you can sit and ride ......... low so you get a tad of water in the eyes if the chop is over 1 ft.

or unclip and remove thar seat and its a standup.

or release the mx style seat from under the steering stalk, clip that into the deck an it rides like a bike .......... great in waves.

ps. You ride a C unt.




oh and pps .......

94!!! Did Briggs and Stratton make the engine for those!?

What does your choice of motorcycle say about you?

It says a great deal -
In your teens you rode whatever your parents would buy you, bearing in mind that they thought you weren't going to be safe on anything over 50cc. You ran it on a shoestring and bodged every repair you couldnt afford the genuine parts for.
In your 20's you got a job, saved up and bought the one you thought you should have had in your teens.
In your 30's you got married, sold the bike, bought a car, started a family and hankered after two wheeled freedom again.
In your 40's you had a choice of restoring the bike you started with but now could afford the parts for it, or bought the modern equivalent of the sportsbike you chose in your 20's.
In your 50's you chose something touring oriented because your joints (specifically wrists and knees) could no longer take being cramped in a sportsbike riding position.
In your 60's nostalgia kicked in and you started restoring something that your Dad would have ridden. You also learned the value of a drip tray
If you survived to your 70's and still wanted a bike you bought something shiny because all you were fit for was polishing the damn thing. By this time your hearing was going, your sight was dodgy, and you would have needed a good friend with an engine hoist to put you on the bike as you could no longer kick your leg over the seat.

Not sure what it says? If I had to think of something, I'm just not really into Japanese bikes despite the fact that I have great respect for their quality, it's just not what I'm in to.

Thanks for asking.

This is my 93ish SS.

The 4 original parts are the gauges, tank, rear plastic, and exhaust headers.

I keep it so I must like it.

Riding around town on a 600cc super sport with the rear fender cropped off and the tag wired up under the seat and the engine tacked out at 8 grand tells me you're a phucken douchebag. Right up there with the chubby Harley riders dressed like pirates and their strait pipes.

Not that anybody on here does that.
