Our friends, Mr Hayusodumb is really onto something. Look at us. We are really just fooling ourselves, aren't we? Our mopeds have small combustion chambers, with low CR's, it's a miracle my little 49cc piston can even turn over, let alone move my ass around town. And what happens when, for instance, the river floods, and I need to escape a raging wall of water, and I could make if I just had the ability to scream away at 200 miles and hour, instead of 20. That Ninja rider surely has one up on us. With the characteristic Ninja qualities he only things sharper than his needle jet are his wits and his courage. Because that's what we lack, courage. That's why I ride mopeds; I am just too scared to get on a real bike. I prefer the safety of a moped, for we all know that with their increased visibility and upright seating position, they are so safe to ride, there was talk of having the Cowardly Lion ride one in the Wizard of Oz, until an unfortunate accident of his tail getting caught in the rear sprocket.
You know, I've learned something today. You can ride a moped, and spend less on gas, and do your own repairs and pay next to nothing at salvage yard for used, but good, parts. You can teach yourself scads about internal combustion and mechanical engineering, but you will never be as cool as those bravehearted saps, excuse me, souls who ride the real machines.
thank you, THANK YOU, Mr Hayusodumb, you have shown me a new light, a new truth about motorized vehicles - The faster you ride, the harder you hit your head, and the more brain cells you kill. Which, according to frat boy philosophy, is a good thing, because, as other members of this group have reminded us, natural selection is always in play, and the brain cells that die must be the weaker ones, allowing for the strong ones access to more nutrients, and hence get stronger.
I think we can all learn a lesson from Mr. H. Kudos to you, Mr. H., if you are still reading this, you will happy to know you exceeded my expectations of your attention span, which put you cutting out about halfway through the first paragraph.
