Before I even opened the post I said yes they are that dumb. What I wonder about is anyone dumb enough to inquire about it?

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

that advert looked to me, like a robot scanner put it together with a library of words to choose from, whether they are relevant, or make sense.


obviously a scam

I have noticed a lot of them with words that make no sense at all.

Then there was a Gold Winger on 1800 two up, pulling a small tear drop at 80+ mph .. No lights on trailer, but he did have chains, white plastic ones with a single white zip tie holding them at bike. Impressed me that a GL anything would pull a small tear drop 80+.

my 2002 gl1800 can easily pull the square trailer in my avatar at 110+,


did it once only, had been following a double tandem 18 wheeler for a long time, then we came to a "valley" that let me see in a straight line far enough ahead, that I knew I could get around,.


hit the throttle for all it was worth....... and got past him safely.


later, reviewing the GPS history records, I got a lump in my throat when I noted that it showed " Top Speed 110 mph "
