The first rule of riding a motorcycle is that everyone on the road wants to kill you.

No truer words have been spoken in the forums.  I am not sure what it is, I have had people look directly at me when I was on the bike and STILL drift/swerve towards me.  

One advantage I found in riding the Harley (or any Cruiser) is that you can get the pipes loud enough that MOST people will hear you if you rack em a couple times.  That assumes they are not talking on their cell phone, playing grab-ass with the other  teenagers in the car or distracted by changing their radio stations because they think that their life requires a "Soundtrack" and everyone needs to hear it.

The only other thing is WEAR a Helmet!  For several reasons, but mostly because it increases your survival rate.  I had the internal dilemna of wanting the wind in my face and to look "cool" but then after my first 70 mph trip and my contacts nearly pealing out of my eyes despite wearing sunglasses, I went with the helmet.  Besides, it adds an air of mystery.  Helmets and Superbikes seem to go together, but I did feel kinda funny being the only guy in the Harley club who wore a REAL DOT approved helmet.  Oh well I was about 20 years younger than most of them too.

yeah lets get to the heart of this thing.  What kind of Bike?

I had to get rid of my 97 Fatboy a couple years ago when my daughter was 1.  I don't regret it, but I'd love to live vicariously through you.  I think if I did it again, I'd get a Ducati Monster or a BMW.

I was kinda depressed to see Luke Snowspeeder as one of the "Target Exclusive Glass Pack ins" gives me the feeling we will not be seeing him anytime soon.

It is sad, because I think he was his most Dynamic in that uniform.  He flew his Speeder, Led the attack on the At-At's, drew their fire when he lost his gunner, nearly got SMOOSHED, shot the grappling hook, sabered a hole in the thing and tossed in a Grenade, and then Walked all the way to the evac area, but this is also the uniform he wore during his first few scenes on Dagobah.

It deserves Super Articulation, the Working Holster, Grappling Hook, Grenade, light saber etc.  I would also want the head to be able to be swapped, because I think the cloth helmet they wear under their flight helmet is really cool on the Snowspeeder pilots.

Basically, this is a ditto for Jesse's post.

As a hater of the Orange, you might like to hear a RUMOR that was on Sportstalk on the way home...

The UT Football staff has been released.  I mean from the TOP DOWN.  I don't know if it is true...and I guess this news would really better be in the CF 2004 forum, but oh well.

I like it when they get a new coach, it means that Tech can beat them in Austin.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: The Worst Movie Ever
« on: January 4, 2004, 09:48 AM »
Flash?  No way.  That thing comes on Starz or Encore and I watch it everytime.

I'll fight the urge to say the Phantom Menace.

The other problem is that this I assume it has to be based on movies we've actually seen, and I usually skip the true STINKER movies (which end up being the Critically Acclaimed and much lauded ones too.)

But the WORST all time that I have seen:

The Quick and Dead with Sharon Stone.
Grandview, USA

I expected more from the Cowboy Defense last night. I got about what I expected from the Quarterback and Falldown back.

I'm not sure what is worse, losing the first round or not having a first round to play in at all. Perhaps the Viking fans can tell us what it was like not to have a team to watch this weekend, or the Bucs fans, Dolphin Fans or Raider Fans(well I guess that would be what its like to not have a team to watch all season)

Dallas needs either a good smart Quarterback OR a new group of receivers that can catch balls that are thrown above and behind them EVERY time.

I assume with my luck that the Colts and Packers will win today, since that will be who I am rooting against.

Ugh, my Kingdom for a Runningback and a QB that throws to a receiver or LEADS a receiver, not behind a receiver.

Step 1 is complete, the Cowboys are back in the playoffs.  Now if we can get Troy Hambrick to go play for Arizona, we might be able to get a decent RB, somebody who can take 4 steps forward before falling down, as oppossed to T Ham's "3 step Drop"...

A positive year to be sure no matter what happens Saturday.  My prediction, the Cowboys either win or get middle of the road.

If I had to pick the best figures of 2003 to me: (in no particular order)

1.  Saga Imperial Officer Both Head sculpts
2.  Rebel Fleet Trooper
3.  Hoth Han (in spite of his terrible stance)
4.  Mynock Hunt Chewie
5.  AT-ST Driver from 4 Pack

The possibility exists for a decent Pilot figure.  They have in their factories, the Wedge with Removable helmet and the new Gold Leader.

I am just hoping it is not like the Y-Wing Pilot we got with it.  

I'd take his astromech too.  Very cool possibilities.

But I think somebody else also pondered the idea that it MIGHT be a Rebel Technician...maybe that one from the cancelled sets (like the DS Trooper, Scout Trooper, Hoth Abomination, Battle Droid sets, I can't remember what they were called.)

Here is the question at the price are people going to buy it or are they going to wait for the clearance like in the past?  I am going to snag 2 in the beginning and hopefully have enough $ laying around to buy another at each price drop.

EV.1 GalleryFurniture Playing Before New Years Eve, but at least after Christmas Day Houston Bowl!!!!

I am not a big BCS supporter myself, I would like a playoff, but the main problem with that is, that Texas Tech would never get a bowl game then.  So I am torn.  I want a definative National Champion in College Football, but I don't want to sacrifice any possible Bowl Money. Not that I get any of it.

But it you did a tournament like in Basketball, you would end up needing to have just 10 game regular seasons or starting the season in Early August and  I think it starts too early already. (Of course I don't feel that way in July, when I am jonesing for Football)

Wow, well that will either dispel one rumor or prove another...

Unfortunately for that player you have to REALLY be looking.

I don't drink it normally, but if we are somewhere that will amuse me and put about 90% Half and Half with sugar and about 10% coffee then I'll drink it.

It shocks people because my dad is known for being a coffee ZEALOT.   It is amazing.

Of course, if our 2 year old daughter has a rough night and it is my turn to get up early with her, I'll down a few cups.

The last cup of coffee I had was at Starbucks, it is Vanilla Latte with 8 pumps of Vanilla (cream and sugar too of course).

I usually just wake up, grab a coke and head into the day.

Go to and listen on the net, they'll let you know exactly how the rest of us Cowboy fans are feeling about certain players and positions.

The Original Trilogy / Re: Rebel Uniforms
« on: December 1, 2003, 08:59 AM »
Ok rather than start a new topic, I'll just add a second question...

On the Xwing uniform (and Y Wing Uniform in ANH), were the boots they are wearing more of a "Jack Boot" or more like a riding boot.  In all the publicity stills and stuff that you see of Luke in his Xwing gear, he is wearing the Riding Style boot, like Han Solo Wears the whole trilogy.

Anybody seen any other pics/sources of pilots that aren't Luke(since he may be the exception and not the rule)

They only thing that makes the Cowboy loss tolerable is the fact that Brett Fahrve lost today too.

Oh well.  you can't win em all.  I am proud that in a losing effort we were able to put points on the board..since we've laid the goose egg twice this year.  We are a Quarterback and a Runningback away from winning 10 games in a season.

Just think how much better Miami's record would be if Fiedler would have been playing this last few weeks(the whole game).
