Back In The Saddle! 0Face Drinks the Kool-Aid, Rides a Stoopid Tire, Doesn't Crash, and Lives To Tell the Tale!

Post by SkooterG »

That's right! It was time for a certain somebody to put his Big Boy pants on and get properly acquainted with Arizona! So on a day filled with sunshine, clear skies, and temperatures in the high 70s, Mr. 0Face got back on two wheels! And I am happy to report that no animals were harmed in the making of this ride report!

From one old Chicago boy to another who recently relocated to the Copper State: Come ride and abuse one of my Motos! Well, that bastard graciously obliged! Though I am not sure he was expecting the choices he got when he arrived at mi casa this morning.

I gave him a choice of STOOOPID Tire:


Image


Or Kool-Aid:


Image

Poor bastard.

I planned out a nice ride in the middle of the the beautiful Arizona desert. Not a lot of twisties, but a relaxing ride in the middle of nowhere with little traffic and a stop at my favorite hole in the wall Mexican restaurant. My normal riding bitch Gary (MudslideMiller) was #3 of today's episode of The Three Stooges.

What is he trying to tell me here? I am #1 for loaning him my moto? He's excited to ride? His assessment of my choice of rear tire?


Image


Almost ready to go!


Image


He started out with the STOOOPID Tire FJR. I think he liked the cruise control. It was a pleasant ride to Gila Bend to Sofia's Mexican Food for lunch.


Image


Yummy!


Image


Somewhere along the way Mister 0Face got sneaky on me. He motioned me over to the side of the road. He told me there was something wrong with my FJR. I started inspecting it and the next thing I know that bastard is riding away on my Kraut Krap moto pulling a wheelie and flipping me off! Me thinks the Kool-Aid may be strong with this one.


Bellies full, more riding to do!


Image


Image


Image



Vulture Mine Road. Beautiful desert and a few miles of the only twisties of the day.


Image


The Three Amigos, errrr..... Bitches, ummm.... Stooges at the last stop before heading home....


Image



I think somebody started to fall back into his Moto Happy Place today. I'm just glad I could be a part of it. And for all you folks back in Chicago and other places where the weather sucks..... well.... :finger:


And one last thing: Me thinks Mr. 0Face got drunk on the Kool-Aid. I wouldn't be surprised to someday see a fine piece of Bavarian Engineering in his driveway. So as for you Bugnatr, well, eat a bag of dicks! :nhlfight:

Well Skooter it's like this, the Bug and myself have more Brains than money so we stuck with the tried and true Yamaha S-10. As for Oface, time will tell! :)

I get the sneaky suspicion that the police in AZ will be getting a lot of calls for some guy riding a BMW that just flipped them off.

I can't explain how awesome it is to get back to something that truly feeds the soul. I'm grateful for people like Scooter (Not Wheatie, he's mean). And yes as soon as John finds me a suitable GSA I'll be acquiring one...LOL
