Scarab - Page 169

Swiftes.... wow! That is one cool video. I've seen some videos that are very similar in nature, and even ssen some tricks like that irl... but that fence-riding...! OMG! So awesome!

Rado ~ Thanks for the Muzac!


As for The Ghost Rider, I am terribly conflicted. All traffic elements removed rom the equation, he does some amazing stuff... and I find myself chuckling at some of his antics, not to mention that some of the stunts are outrageoussly amazing.

That aside, I feel that riding at high speeds and doing wheelies in traffic is not very wise, and not very responsible. One of the elements involved is that others see these antics and are egged on by it.

Speaking of which, I did break my cardinal rule a couple (few) weeks ago and did a short wheelie on the Hwy 101... but I was being egged on by a group of people in a big-ass truck (yes... some were female)


On-Topic:

I will be getting back to this project once I finish up some work that I am doing on a project for Mr. Cattlerustler.

You're starting on my carbon fiber/acrylic helmet after you're done with scarab, right?

saw that nice stuff you posted in that little collab with the funny name, and was hoping you'd taken the time, since you set up the router table, to do some more on this! (and post pics... since I know you did, and you're just hoarding them... selfish.)

Yeah, I'm conflicted by the whole GR thing. (never heard of him before this.) Personally, I've seen a lot of GR wannabees roaring down the freeway, doing wheelies and cutting people off in traffic, and just generally being *******s on wheels. While it's cool to respect someone's skills, and feel thrilled watching high speed stuff and wanting to do it to be cool, it is dangerous, and reckless, and while the riders themselves bear most of the risk, they're not the only ones being affected. Not to mention there's a lot of bad drivers out there who change lanes or brake with no warning/reason. Its not a video game you can start over with.

Granted, I'm not a rider, so take my opinion as you will... but I've seen some nasty crashes, and you all have heard the stories and seen the videos, I'm sure. Plus think of the traffic jams that get created with this!

Oh you Can you at least do a cf racing stripe on my bike when I get one?

Side note, I tried to do a mohawk, but it wouldn't stay. I tried wax and gel to no avail. But I just shaved my head and now it feels/looks awesome.
