I don't preferably like eating crow but the older I get, the easier it is. I feel that when you are a real man you are O.K. with admitting when you are wrong. I've done it publicly on my blog before, and why not here again.

My wife and I for what ever reason, for likely the last 6 months have argued about weather or not the 123456789101112 thing was from Sesame Street of Electric Co. I said Electric Co, she said Sesame Street. She was right again. I searched it out and found a YouTube video of it, and it is clearly Sesame Street.

Click on the image to watch and enjoy the nostalgia of it all.

Kanji is a Japanese pictogram. It is what we usually think of when we see Asian writing of any kind. I can not tell the difference between Korean, Chinese, Japanese, or any other. They all look the same to me.

I amongst others in the motoblogosphere have been getting the shit spammed out of me big time. I've been deleting the comments left by this "ed" mutherfucker. Ed is using Kanji, or some other similar Asian pictogram writing to get his message across. I think he's got some nifty software working for him, or a company doing it because he is either manually wasting his time, or somehow bypassing word verification. This shit takes time! I deleted 14 comments left from him today alone!

I'd hate to have to do comment moderation. Hopefully he'll get tired of us soon. Your best weapon is to delete his comments folks! If you leave them, he wins. If you put your cursor over them, you'll see they are hyper links. I would not click on them to see where they go. They may link into VIRUSville, or he may get money for clicks, which could be his motivation.

Ed, I have one thing to say to you....

Oh, yeah, ed, In case you can't read Engrish, turn your head ed sideways, to read Go Fuck Yourself!

Daytona Bike Week - Get a Start on the Rally Season

The 68th anniversary of Daytona Bike Week is being held February 27 - March 8, 2009 in Daytona Beach, Florida. The start of Daytona Bike Week is often announced on the morning TV news shows. You know, where somebody sticks their face in front of the camera and announces: "We're at the opening of Daytona Bike Week. Good Morning America," and then you see a whole line of bikes roar off in front of the camera. Unfortunately, most of the remainder of Bike Week will not be seen by non-motorcyclists.

Check out my article, Daytona, for details.

Here in the frigid Northeast, I hear plenty of people talking about going to Daytona. Some are riding down with friends. Riding sometimes means riding in a car and towing a trailer with the bike on it. After all, the 1500 miles down with uncertain weather conditions has left many a rider stranded in a snow storm or Nor'easter. After that happens to you once, you tend to be a little more cautious the next time you go.

Maybe you want to skip Daytona and concentrate on planning to go to some smaller rallies this year. Be sure to read my article, Motorcycle Rallies, where I discuss rallies and give you information about the top rallies that I like. Of course, your views may be different -- this is Motorcycle Views after all.

I just got my registration information for the Americade Motorcycle Rally. That one is my favorite and I've gone every year since 1994.

It can get expensive going to lots of rallies, especially if you're taking two bikes. Double gas, double tolls. You just have to pick and choose what appeals to you most in these uncertain economic times. Motorcycle rallies are a lot of fun. If you've never attended a rally, you owe it to yourself to go. You just might find a rally or two that you'll want to go to every year, just like I go to Americade, regardless of the weather.

Cancel your credit card before you die


I tried to Snopes this to check it's validity, and they found nothing, so if not true, still funny as a joke.

Now some people are really stupid!!!!
Be sure and cancel your credit cards before you die.

This is so priceless, and so, so easy to see happening, customer service being what it is today.

A lady died this past January, and Citibank billed her for February and March for their annual service charges on her credit card, and added late fees and interest on the monthly charge. The balance had been $0.00 when she died, but now somewhere around $60.00. A family member placed a call to Citibank.

Here is the exchange

Family Member:
'I am calling to tell you she died back in January.'

: 'The account was never closed and the late fees and charges still apply.'

Family Member
: 'Maybe, you should turn it over to collections.'

: 'Since it is two months past due, it already has been.'

Family Member
: So, what will they do when they find out she is dead?'

: 'Either report her account to frauds division or report her to the credit bureau, maybe both!'

Family Member
: 'Do you think God will be mad at her?'

'Excuse me?'

Family Member
: 'Did you j ust get what I was telling you - the part about her being dead?'

: 'Sir, you'll have to speak to my supervisor.'

Supervisor gets on the phone

Family Member
: 'I'm calling to tell you, she died back in January with a $0 balance.'

: 'The account was never closed and late fees and charges still apply.'

Family Member
: 'You mean you want to collect from her estate?'

: (Stammer) 'Are you her lawyer?'

Family Member
: 'No, I'm her great nephew.' (Law yer info was given)

'Could you fax us a certificate of death?'

Family Member
: 'Sure.' (Fax number was given )

After they get the fax

: 'Our system just isn't setup for death. I don't know what more I can do to help.'

Family Member: 'Well, if you figure it out, great! If not, you could just keep billing her. She won't care.'

'Well, the late fees and charges will still apply.'

(What is wrong with these people?!?)

Family Member
: 'Would you like her new billing address?'

: 'That might help...'

Family Member: ' Odessa Memorial Cemetery , Highway 129, Plot Number 69.'

: 'Sir, that's a cemetery!'

Family Member
: 'And what do you do with dead people on your planet???'

Gnats Ass

As quoted by Lady Ridesalot A.K.A. Glider Rider on Thursday Feb. 19th, in her Too close for comfort post..."He just missed hitting the front of my car by a gnat's ass!"

This reminded me of all of the different things we say for terms of measurement.

Just how big of a distance is a gnats ass anyway?

Maybe it's only about 6".

Maybe It's about 1 foot.

Maybe even a foot and a half

Or two feet even!

Nah, I think it's closer measured in.....

Crazier than riding twisties on a motorcycle...
