Hey, I'm sure he's the nicest ex-Hitler Youth religious leader you can meet, but I just can't get all excited about his visit.
First, we get crypto-fascist laws making it illegal to "annoy" his pilgrims, and the now usual array of heavy-handed "security" measures by the increasingly paramilitary NSW police force.
Second, we get thousands of delusional, idiot pilgrims creating traffic chaos and generally making noisy idiots out of themselves.
Third, taxpayers have to pay millions of dollars for all this shit.
Fourth, we get irritating blanket TV coverage of this wanker festival.
...and last but not least, today Sydney motorcyclists who were parked in designated motorcycle parking spaces get their bikes towed away by arsehole parking rangers and their Boys-in-Blue escorts.
Why? Well, I'm sure they were....um...a severe security risk or something.
Very cool. Especially the sound.
This has to be the weirdest season in a long time.
First, Stoner crushes them in Qatar. Then, his season starts going down the toilet at an alarming rate as he crashes and experiences shitty luck while rookie Lorenzo and the other Spanish dwarf Pedrosa score wins.
Then Rossi gets his mojo back and wins three in a row. His remarkable Rookie teammate Lorenzo crashes and hurts himself pretty badly, and has been nowhere since.
Now, Stoner, from outta nowhere, comes back and wins three in a row, including last night's race in Germany, while championship leader Pedrosa crashes while enjoying a 7.5 second lead.
Now, Rossi is back on top of the points table.
Talk about a yo-yo season.
Sadly, while the results have been interesting, the races have tended be processional and rather dull, with the respective winners looking like they've done it pretty easily.
Please, Dorna, go back to the 990s
I'd quite like to ride one of these around Australia: Buell's strange and fascinating XB12X, aka the Ulysses.
I've written before about Buell's wonderfully oddball sports bikes, which shovel ancient and overweight Harley Sportster engines into radical modern chassis. Now they've had a stroke of genius and done the same thing to create an all-roads adventure machine.
It's no "serious" adventure bike, like BMW's R1200GS Adventure, so you won't be taking it over any sand dunes, but it still seems to cut the mustard as an all-road tourer. It certainly looks better and can probably out-handle practically anything in the soft-roader market. It's a Buell though, so build quality is still questionable.
Still, I'd have one. Another to be added to my possible next-new-bike purchase list.
Got back from Melbourne a few days ago, where I saw The Angels.
Old and slow they may be, and Doc Neeson looks worse than Keith Richards, but goddamn the fuckers can still play.
If I ever open a pub, I'm hiring these chickens for security.
Got a lot of time on your hands? You like Formula 1 racing?
Are you a completely clueless cockspank who thinks a motorcycle is a car with two less wheels? Well don't worry, you can buy yourself the mighty Rocketshield:
Oh dear. Oh dear.
In other words, her entire adult life was devoted to a genocidal ideology. What a piece of shit.
I missed this little gem from back in May:
Reminds me of that great joke about Fidel Castro;
