Re: Metrics

I live with it and still can't get use to it. I end up converting metric back to something I can see in my head or feel the weight of, not just a multipul of 10. Maybe if I was born with it ,it would be different. bruce

Re: Guinness Fat Twins

Yeah, I think you're right. They're on motorcycles. I suppose even an HD Ultraglide would look like a moped under those fellas.

Re: Are all moped riders heavy?

take some xenodrine you slobs

Metrics are better? Hmmmm.....

I think the metric system has a lot of advantages,(1) except for the kilometer and centimeter being so short comparatively to our mile and inch respectively. I would like a larger measure like 2 kilometers for a unit to be named later. And a unit for 2 centimeters the same way.(2) I do hate Celsius because it's not as accurate as Fahrenheit as far as finer graduations concerning degrees are concerned.(3) I also like the finer graduations of thousandths of an inch rather than tenths of millimeters because a thousandth is probably around 4 times more finely graduated.(4) I am used to 32 degrees being freezing and 0 degrees being `unpeddable' weather. DARN!..... I guess I'll keep the `ol English measurement system after all! HaHaHaHaaaa!

Well done Bruce ... lol !

Nice set-up and punchline ... hahaha

Yep... thats right.. 795 pounds... so any 'a you bubbas want to mess with me.... yoinaheepatrubble !

Our engineered drawings here are now about half and half (metric and English)... many of the CAD drawings have both values for every single dimension.

I'm just shy of 5'5" and about 150, but most of that is muscles and girlie bits. My Indian is pretty burly for a 'ped, though. Indian made every other bike huge, they stuck with that theme for their moped.
