end of the tank?
Steven Den Beste has
a nice essay on the decreasing usefulness of the tank in modern warfare.
Nine bikes I really want
which means it's going to fall apart faster than an ice sculpture
in the Sahara. There's no way I'd spend my own money on it.
But damn, what a lovely machine when it's in working order: huge,
gruntly V-twin, fantastic handling, and remarkable comfort for a
CBR 954 Fireblade
A bike I almost
bought. The most lean & hi-tech of the big Jap fours. Stunningly
light (168kgs!!) and better handling than pretty much anything out
there. Super-crisp throttle response, smooth, powerful engine and
better comforts than the R1 or GSXR-1000.
V-twin sportsbike. Looks, comfort, gorgeous motor and well-priced.
No wonder the damn things are so popular. Excellent build quality
Take the engine
out of my ZX-9R, bore it out to 954cc, add fuel injection and stick
it in a comfortable, nakedbike frame. Power, good looks and comfort.
It's all there.....
streetrod finally gets the superbike engine it deserves.
I'm not into
cruisers, but I'm tempted to take Honda's biggie for a relaxed long
day-ride or two. Of course, being Honda, it has three things Harleys
don't: 1) build quality, 2) a decent engine, 3) good brakes.
and baddest road mutha of em all. Arguably the fastest production
vehicle on the planet - two wheels or four. I wouldn't buy one simply
for the horrendous cost of keeping the machine in tyres and chains.
The bike I want
to travel around Australia on. Comfortable, good for the outback
highways and can carry assloads of gear.
engine is arguably the best motor in the two-wheeled world. I had
one in my Triumph Sprint RS, but that bike was let down by crummy
suspension, slow steering and poor balance.
But here's they've
stuck it in an upright streetrod frame with a sharp-handling chassis
and decent suspension. I want one.
Some generous person(s)

Kinda tragic to see grown men with such a raging insecurity complex.
Here's my Idiot-of-the-month;
think the world is a better place with Hussein in it. He is quite clever
and contrary to American propaganda has no plans to take over the world
(unlike America). His incusions into Iran were provoked by Iran and
supported by the US. Nothing to worry about there. Kuwait was also a
dispute and prior to his invasion, he was told by the US that they didn't
care what he did. If any comparisons to Hitler are made, it is Bush
that has the most similar record. It is the US that invades at will,
it is the US that imposes it's will on any country it feels like. We
need people like Hussein to keep him honest.
Says it all, don't

It's my birthday on
the 15th of Feb, but I'm saving every shekel for my trip to USA/Canada
in April. Some people have PayPal buttons, I have my
Amazon wish list.

you who really love this site and have some money to spend,
you can help buy Tex a snappy suit from Roger
David with one of their online
gift vouchers. Pleeease.
Yes, I have no shame.

In fact, many of
the remarks made by religious people are nonsensical. People say, I
think Jesus is my best friend. No one responds as they should
to that, which is to say, You should be locked up, thats
utter crap. For some reason, in what used to be called the Christian
world, a free pass is given to anyone who makes any remark, however
stupid, if its baptized by faith.
Tony Benn: pathetic
Saddam Mirror has the full text of Senile Benn's sad,
simpering interview with Saddam.
Naturally, The Mirror
attempted to give weight to this sorry spectacle;
has told Tony Benn in an extraordinary face-to-face TV interview that
Iraq has NO weapons of mass destruction and NO links to al-Qaeda.
Well, that settles
it then. They've used an upper case "NO". Bring the troops home

IS not difficult to imagine the rejoicing that the Columbia space shuttle
tragedy will cause in certain squalid corners of the globe, including
some morally bankrupt parts of Britain.

which is saying something for someone who grew up during the Vietnam
Labour Party pacifists you only ever hear about when they have another
white flag to wave. And the screaming hordes across the globe whose
idea of a good night out is burning the Stars and Stripes.
news that the men and women on board included the first Israeli in space
would have been the cherry on the cake. Isn't it strange how the people
who shout loudest about the Nazis always seem to carry the virus of
anti-Semitism in themselves?
predication. Over the next seven days, all those America-hating, Bush-is-a-cowboy
commentators will start crawling out of the woodwork to report how the
space shuttle tragedy is a blow to America's "arrogance",
"pride" and "egotism".
fact is that the seven men and women who died were shining examples
of how great the human race can be. They were brave, intelligent, with
the quiet selflessness that's always the mark of true heroes.
has an ability to assimilate people from around the world - to make
them true Americans - that is unknown in Europe.
is a generosity of spirit about the United States that is completely
lacking anywhere else.
deriding American culture, it is customary to trot out a few sneers
about McDonald's - as if they don't queue around the block for the stuff
from Moscow to Manchester.
astronauts who died were explorers, pioneers and the last of the frontiersmen.
When we lose that will to strike out for the unknown, we will start
dying as a species.
we could only see it, we will realise that the disintegration of the
space shuttle was truly a tragedy for the entire world.
seven men and women who died on the shuttle were a credit to their race.
Let's hope Tony can
get a job at a real newspaper before too long.

Watched a documentary
on Comrade Beria, Stalin's right-hand secret police psycho. Responsible
for the murder of countless thousands, the imprisonment of millions, and
who was fond of grabbing women off the streets for some good old fashioned
rape n' beatings.
Whenever I hear revolutionary
socialist lunatics spout their endless pathetic babble about justice
for the poor, I think of the millions of victims this one man was
able to create all thanks to the model benevolent governance advocated
by these people Who Know Better Than Us.
I wonder what goes
through the mind of your average socialist, the Castro-loving morons,
the Soviet apologists, the democracy-hating psycho cult. Are you proud
of yourselves, you sick, deluded, worthless bastards?
Are you so completely
insane that you cannot see the decades of genocide, poverty and cultural
annihilation that people exactly like you have brought about?
Why do you howl with
outrage about Enron and then remain silent on North Korean gulags?
Why do you piously
intone about Taliban prisoners at Guantanamo yet praise the "great
leader" who imprisons his entire population on the same island?
Do you not for one
moment consider the totalitarian oppression that will occur the moment
you deliver on your glorious destruction of democracy?
Does it not bother
you that under your glorious rule, the people you so arrogantly claim
to represent will be deprived of any democratic freedoms they now enjoy?
Does it not bother you that you would cast the entire population into
extreme poverty? That you would deny every single person the right to
vote for who they wish? That you would deny them the right to spend their
own money on what they wish, to sell their labour to who they wish, and
live where they wish?
The mind of the revolutionary
socialist pushes all such thoughts aside in the face of politically correct
ideals and self-righteous, ranting fervour. The mind of the revolutionary
socialist endlessly stews in its own resentment of human aspiration and
jealously of those who exercise the small freedoms of life - all those
ignorant nobodies who just do not listen and cannot understand
what is best for them.
The socialist mind
is truly handicapped, completely incapable of seeing humanity as it is,
for whom no horror is too great provided rote-learned principles from
Marxist textbooks are given due attention. This mind never sees beyond
it's own deep, psychotic raging hatred of human life in it's endless variance,
it's perpetual evolution, it's refusal to comply with the conceptually
crippled worldview of socialist principles.
Socialism is not the
struggle to liberate humanity but rather a determination to extinguish
