|Trains, Cycles and Horses: While motorcycling through the Hungarian countryside, Cristo Falatti came up to a railway line just as the crossing gates were coming down. While he sat idling, he was joined by a farmer with a goat, which the farmer tethered to the crossing gate. A few moments later a horse and cart drew up behind Falatti, followed in short order by a man in a sports car. When the train roared through the crossing, the horse startled and bit Falatti on the arm. Not a man to be trifled with, Falatti responded by punching the horse in the head. In consequence the horse's owner jumped down from his cart and began scuffling with the motorcyclist. The horse which was not up to this sort of excitement, backed away briskly, smashing the cart into the sports car. At this, the sports-car driver leaped out of his car and joined the fray. The farmer came forward to try to pacify the three flailing men. As he did so, the crossing gates rose and his goat was strangled. At last report, the insurance companies were still trying to sort out the claims.|
Cycle Joke: A young man bought the fastest motorcycle that money
could buy: a Yamaondason 2000 SP 8.2. It was the most expensive bike in the
world, costing $32,150.99.
first day he bought the new bike he took it for a spin. While doing so he
stopped at a red light at the city limits. An elderly gentleman pulled up
next to him on a moped. The man looked over at the bright, red, shiny, sleek
new motorcycle and asked, "What kind of scooter ya got there,
young man replied, "It's a Yamaondason 2000 SP 8.2. It costs $32,150.99
out the door."
a lot of money," said the old man, shocked. "Why does it cost so
this bike can go 200 mph!" exclaimed the young man.
old fella asked, "Can I take a closer look at it?"
replied the new owner.
his moped, the old man leaned over and took a good look at the very
fast-looking machine. Just then the light changed, so the young man decided
to show the old guy what his new motorcycle could really do. He gave it full
throttle and within 30 seconds the speedometer read 199 mph.
Suddenly, he noticed a dot in his rear-view mirror. It seemed to be getting closer! He slowed a little to see what it could be, and, suddenly, WHHHOOOSSSHHH, something whipped passed him going much faster. "What could be faster than my 2000 SP 8.2?" the young man thought to himself. Then, just ahead of him, he saw the dot coming back at him. WHHHOOOSSSHHH! It went flying by him again, going in the opposite direction! It almost looked like the elderly man on the moped! How could that be, thought the young man. Again he saw the dot in his mirror!
KABBBLAMMM! The moped
slammed into the rear of the shiny new 2000 SP 8.2, demolishing the rear end
of the young rider's pride and joy.
young man jumped off and saw it was the old timer. Of course the moped was
crushed, and the old man was lying on the ground, pretty beat up. The young
man ran over to him and asked, "Are you hurt? Is there anything I can
do for you?
The old man groaned and replied, "Yes, would you please unhook my suspenders from your side-view mirror?"
The New Harley and Dishes:
This guy has always dreamed of owning a Harley Davidson. One day he has
finally saved up enough money so he goes down to the dealer and he picks out
the perfect bike. While getting all the paperwork together, the dealer tells
him about an old biker-trick that will keep the chrome on his new bike free
from rust. The trick is to keep a jar of Vaseline handy and put it on the
chrome before it rains, and everything will be fine. He happily pays for the
bike and leaves.
A mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the motor of a motorcycle, when
he spotted a world-famous heart surgeon in his shop. The
heart surgeon was waiting for the service manager to come take a look at his
bike. The mechanic shouted across the garage, "Hey Doc can
I ask you a question?"
The famous surgeon, a bit surprised, walked over to the mechanic working
on the motorcycle.
The surgeon paused, smiled and leaned over, and whispered
to the mechanic... "Try
doing it with the engine running!”
|Vacationing Flea: A flea
had oiled up his little flea legs and his little flea arms, had spread out
his blanket, and was proceeding to soak up the Miami sun when who should
stumble by on the beach but an old flea friend of his. "Oscar,
what happened to you?", asked the flea, because Oscar looked terrible,
wrapped up in a blanket, his nose running, his eyes red, and his teeth
"I got a ride down here in some guy's mustache and he came down here by motorcycle. I nearly froze my nuts off," wheezed Oscar.
"Let me give you a tip, old pal," said the first flea, spreading some more suntan oil on his shoulders. "You go to the stewardess lounge at the airport, see, and you get up on the toilet seat, and when an Air Florida stewardess comes in to take a leak, you hop on for a nice warm ride. Got it?"
So you can imagine the flea's surprise when, a month or so later, while stretched out all warm and comfortable on the beach, who should he see but Oscar - looking more chilled and miserable than before.
"Listen," said Oscar, "I did everything you said. I made it to the stewardess lounge and waited till a really cute one came in, and made a perfect landing and got so warm and cozy that I dozed right off."
"And so?" asked the first flea.
"And so the next thing I know, I'm on this guy's mustache again!"
|It seems that recent investigations have shown that the Harley-Davidson Sprint (Aermacchi) has what many consider to be ideal dimensions for an off-road motorcycle. Investors are being sought to start manufacturing this motorcycle again to meet the demands of today's off-road enthusiast. Current plans are to put a revitalized and updated model (see attached photo) into production as well as kits to retrofit models back to 1962. (I could not find any word on the cost.) Also, plans are well under way for a 'Dakar team for 2001. 145 former employees have been located (with the aid of the Italian census bureau) and have been forced...asked to form the necessary support teams that will line the course (an estimated 243 such teams will be needed.) Negotiations are still under way to find a rider for the effort. Currently, hopes are riding (sorry for the pun) on Guiseppe Idota, a 79 year old former Aermacchi test rider who was located (after much searching) in a Florence retirement home. He seems quite eager for the opportunity. "The last 30 years are pretty fuzzy for him," said an Aermacchi spokesman "but he remembers the 1960's like it was yesterday. We think that will mean his riding skills are still sharp." I will let you know more as this exciting story develops!|

of Harley Davidson Motorcycle Corporation, died and went to heaven.
At the gates, St. Peter told Arthur, "Since you've been such a
good man and your motorcycles have changed the world, your reward is
this; you can hang out with God." St. Peter took Arthur to the
Throne Room, and introduced him to God. Arthur then asked God,

There's a fellow who is an avid rider. Actually he's a motorcycle fanatic. He has not missed a weekend of
motorcycle riding in years. Every Saturday and Sunday morning he gets up very early and goes meets his buddies for
a nice long ride. On this one morning, he gets up early, dresses quietly, gets
his riding gear out of the closet, and goes out to the garage to prepare to leave. While out there it started raining a
torrential downpour. There was snow mixed with the rain and the wind is blowing at 30 mph. He comes back into the house
and turns the TV to the Weather Channel. From there he finds it's going to be bad weather all day long. So he puts his
bike back into the garage and comes back inside. He quietly undresses and slips back into bed where he
cuddles up to his wife's back, and whispers, "The weather out there is terrible."
To which she replies, "Can you believe my stupid husband is out riding his bike today?"

Rabbit & Genie: There was this bear and rabbit in the woods. The bear was
beating up this rabbit something fierce. He was throwing the rabbit, stomping on his head,
kicking him up into the air, etc.. As they were fighting, the bear
kicked over a lamp and out popped a genie. The genie said, "I will give each of you three wishes."
The bear said, "I want all bears in this forest to be female." Ok, poof, it was done by the genie.
The rabbit said, "I want a motorcycle helmet." Ok, poof, it was done by the genie.
The bear said, "For my second wish, I want all the bears in that forest over there to be female also." Ok, poof, it was done by the genie.
The rabbit said, "For my second wish, I want a Suzuki Hayabusa." Ok, poof, it was done by the genie.
The bear said, "For my final wish, I want all the bears in all the forests to be female." Ok, poof, it was done by the genie.
The rabbit, while wearing his new helmet and sitting on his new motorcycle, revved the engine and said, "For my last wish, I want that bear to be gay." Ok, poof, it was done by the genie.
Driver? A cop is staking out the Killarney Hotel for bikers riding drunk. At closing
time, he sees a biker stumble out of the bar, trip on the curb, and fumble
for his keys for five minutes. When he finally gets on the bike, it takes
him another five minutes to get the key in the ignition. Meanwhile, everybody else leaves the bar and rides off.
When he finally pulls away, the cop is waiting for him, pulls him over, and
gives him a Breathalyzer test. The test shows he has a blood alcohol level
of 0.0. The cop says, "How is this possible?"
The guy laughs and says, "Tonight I'm the designated decoy."
