Yeah here's the other one. I remembered there were two jams on this album but couldn't think of the names. Last time I heard this I was eighteen.

I wanna learn how to pop wheelies on my bikes so any guidance or advice would be appreciated. Smears.

I've researched how to do it extensively online but I'm still chicken because I'm afraid the bike'll jump out from under me.

The dude in the video demonstrated how to do it in slower speeds and it sounds simple. At around forty you're in third gear. Then you do this all at once: pull the clutch, twist the throttle (in a quick jerk), and release the clutch during the rev. This down shift in higher rpms causes the front to pop up.... okay, but what if you twist too much... like how do you know how much is enough until you've done it... but then it's too late if you twisted it too much.

I'm not worried about getting hurt. I can leap aside if I spill it. It's the bikes man. I cant risk layin em down.

What do you think, Mr. R? Would you advise against learning how to pop wheelies on a cbr600rr or a sv1000s in near mint condition? Is one advised to use a learner bike instead, perhaps?

I instantly feel Instantly better after that post.. my Dharma/Karma game is strong ..though I think that being called a prat and a coconut, yesterday, was less annoying than this.

understand.. he doesn’t understand a lot, it seems.

Guess what I did. I'm at the car wash washing ludwig van and I get the big idea to spray the engine down. You know, lightly... hold the wand up high and give it a good twice over to wash the dirt and grime and shit off. Of course I knew the risk of getting water in something where it shouldnt be... but goddamn I hardly sprayed it. I mean I wasn't fucking power washing the damn thing, ya know?

So I pull out of the bay and Ludwig won't shift out of second. Check engine light comes on. Sonofabitch I shorted the goddamn computer out or something and now the transmission is all retarded.

But y'all cant fuck with me. I pulled the code with a fucking paper clip and went straight to the throttle body sensor. Jack pot. Cost me $40 and an hour of time.

Y'all'da spent 400 gotdamn dollars and been none the wiser. Course y'all prolly wouldnt have sprayed the engine down... but that's because you're afraid to take risks like me... afraid to build your cities at the base of vesuvius.

Watching Donald Trump All-American Billionaire


Storyline

Emily Maitlis tells the story of Donald Trump, the world's most famous developer, who changed the New York skyline with his glitzy towers and made himself a multi-billionaire.

Trump is a mafia princess who’s actually in debt.

His father gave him 200 million dollars. If you count inflation, even the money trump claims to have means that he actually lost money from his inheritance.

Trump is a sociopath. But then, so is general America. Trump is a narcissist, but then so is general America. Trump is poorly educated, but then is most of America.

It’s always made sense to me why most ILPers like trump. He’s a shithead with a microphone. Make you think less of me to say that about ILPers? Shouldn’t, because apparently you’re all moral nihilists. Oh wait! That’s logic! Fuck moral nihilists hate logic! So you’re a hypocrite to hate me, because your hatred requires logic!

It’s been on a few times.. it seems, but I never saw it then. When the interviewer said that Trump was 63, I realised then that it was an old show.

I found it to be a very interesting show indeed, but about 10 minutes out and I wanted it to end, because I wanted to go sleep.. those last 10 minutes felt like an eternity. :|

As of tonight, starting a 30 day detox program. This one contains ingredients that really cleanse the blood, organs, lymphatic system etc.. one a day for 30 days.. I’m going to be so cleansed. My physician thinks I need detoxing, so instead of taking his prescribed homeopathic poisonous potions, I’m going to try the simpler route to a cleansed system.

Once this detox is over, I might start detoxing either every weekend or every other weekend, to ensure that my system doesn’t descend into a state of fatigue again.

I paid a lot less than even that, when I got to the till.

Well that first cup of detox tea worked instantly, in soothing and calming my usually uneasy gut, so would highly recommend it to anyone.

It'll be easier on the SV with all that torque. If you fail to get the wheel up 100 times then finally manage it, then you learn without wrecking the bike. If you go too hard and loop it then you wreck it. I'd start slow and ease up until you get it. With the CBR just get the rpms up and hold em there then pop the throttle a little bit and see how hard you've gotta hit to to pop that front wheel up. Balance is key. Good luck and make sure you've got frame sliders.
