    Fred Forum

    How about a forum where people are just concerned about practicality and not how much money a bike costs? It's about the engine, stupid. Weight weenies and sub 25mph lycra leg shaving losers need not enter.

    Any thread that I participate in IS the Fred Thread.
    "Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey

    John, there's more to Bike Forums than just P&R and Road - honest.
    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."
