Chinese Police Destroy 14,277 Motorcycles in Efforts to Halt Bike-Based Crimes

Motorcycles don't steal - people steal! Stop the insanity!!
In an apparent attempt to cut back on motorcycle based purse snatchings and other crimes of daring-do, Chinese authorities in the city of Shenzhen have embarked upon a major offensive against illegal two-wheelers.

Shenzhen’s Daily Sunshine has reported that 14,277 confiscated motorbikes were destroyed by bulldozers recently, following a binge this past April of 9532 wrecked cycles. While reports remain sketchy about what actually constitutes and “illegal” motorcycle, authorities haven’t been shy in their crusade, confiscating over 580,000 bikes since a 2003 ban took effect. Currently no bikes are allowed in most parts of the downtown area, and the city has been stopped allowing new registrations of motorcycles since 1998.

Motorcyclists may find those kinds of sanctions more than harsh, but the program has been effective according to the article, which says that motorcycle-based crimes are down more than 58 percent compared to last year. The police have even busted up three “motorcycle robbery gangs” in that time. There’s got to be the makings of at least one Rush Hour script here, right?

I read a post by Sasquatch today about Villains and made me think of my favorite 7 minutes in a movie.
It is when Chingachgook (now Last of the Mohican's) avenges his son Uncas' death at the hands of MAGUA (the Villain). Keep an eye on Hawkeye's awesome rifle work, (who needs multishot guns?) as well as Chingachgook's deft handling of his Gun-Stock Club to render Magua useless. Enjoy!!
BTW - My children studied for all their tests listening to this soundtrack.

Senior Freek'n Citizen???

I am not real tech savvy on the PC and with other web "thingies". As soon as I figure them out, it seems that they are on to the next Tech marvel. (at least I can Blog)

I check out,, and to see what they are offering every once and a while. I have even bought a few electronic gadgets over the past year or so.

I was scanning one of the sites the other day and this description FLOORED me. It referred to my beloved Generational segment as a "The baby-boomin’, pre-military-industrial-complex-era senior citizen" Might as well have called us Geezers while they were at it!!!

I am sure that I or folks my age are not their target audience to start with, but I say that we Boycott DC Fashion. Since I have never really heard of DC I guess they sell this stuff to "Pimple Faced - Wanna be Gangstas - Gold Chain wearin - baggy ASS panted - Punk ass MoFo's - Fo Sho" Wishin they was cool enough to be "Baby Boom'n Bad Assed Biker Boys"

Anyway - here is the ad for a flannel shirt - BTW - Back in the Day we wore the hell out of flannel shirts. Ain't nuttin new homie! To use a Dave'ism ...... pssssst!

Like you, the DC Men’s Cam Flannel Shirt had no idea what an epaulet was until it found itself wearing some. The baby-boomin’, pre-military-industrial-complex-era senior citizens who live next to Cam informed him that an epaulet is for storing your beret when you aren’t wearing it. You mean my beanie? Yes, young man, your stocking cap.

Daytona Spring Bike Week 2009

Why I love Bike Rallies - other than the usual Bikes, Babes, & Beer


Why do I love Bike Rallies?

It finally dawned on me on me, What I like best about Bike Events, while riding in the cold on our most recent trip to 2009 Daytona Spring Rally. The 1st thing that I need to say is that the saddle time is most rewarding - especially if you have had the winter I had up in NE Ohio - as well as being couped up in trains, planes, automobiles for a 24 hour marathon trip back from Asia. Anyway Bike Week is an opportunity to stay in the most basic (DUMP) motel/hotel, eat foods that your wife would rather you didn't, there ain't no making beds, or picking towels or putting shit where it's SUPPOSED to go, you can drink beer, buy chrome you don't need - and just be a GUY for a long weekend. That's what I like!

With that said let me tell you about our plush accommodations. Which by the way was right on the ocean - Now, I have been to Daytona Beach about a half dozen times and this was the first time I actually saw the ocean - who knew there was a beach? Maybe next time I'll swim.

The very nice and very pregnant gal at the front desk said that the room came with a mini fridge, coffee pot and microwave - if they weren't stolen. She also said that we could check the room out before we decided - well that was plenty endorsement for us.

Upon checking into the room we noticed that it did indeed have its microwave stolen along with a lampshade and bedside telephone. What was left was plenty of worn fabrics, crusty carpet, and a room that needed some "freshening". At this point we had committed!

Arrrgh arrrgh arrrgh - so we sucked it up as we walked cautiously across the dirty worn carpet hoping not to pick up any infectious toe fungus. My riding buddy asked me if my wife would ever stay in a place like this and I had to admit that she would probably not, but would choose rather to sleep in the car - since we only had scooters with us - we decided to make it home for a few days.

The amenities packet included with the room was an all-in-one Cube that served as Shampoo, Conditioner, Lotion, Shave Cream, toothpaste and basic 1st aid kit - all in a rectangle smaller that a Andes Dinner Mint.
We had a great time as always and as with all Bike Week Venues there was plenty of B,B & B although the cold weather & economy seemed to have taken a toll on attendance and exposure. ENJOY!!
