Scott, if you could show where I "defame" John Valk, I'd be interested to see it. I'm merely pointing out that, over the years, there have been many "incidents" on John Valk guided rides. That is a factual statement that can be verified by Cindee Padgham, JV's resident insurance broker. Sure, it's no secret that I don't personally like John Valk, and I think I'm entitled to my opinions on any one, or any subject. Regarding your "stupid" comment, I believe you accused me first of being stupid. I don't believe I've ever accused you of being a newbie, slow, etc., etc. You're more than entitled to buy whatever bike you want, from whatever dealer strikes your fancy. Okay, now maybe we can get back to the subject of this thread.

After calling your Nazi uncle a 'war hero', in the same breath you tell me I'm on a moral high horse for explaining my great grandmother was a concentration camp survivor?

Okay then.

Adam, here's today's BCSB History Lesson: my uncle was a career officer in the Luftwaffe, and served his country by flying combat missions in two world wars. He also took on young RAF whipper-snappers half his age whilst leading his squadron of ME 109's during the Battle of Britain. I think this qualifies him for war hero status. He was not a national socialist, but a patriot surely. As a career officer, you go where you are ordered, which is what he did. If that doesn't fit your black-and-white view of history, you might want to take up a more serious study of the events of the past century.

My grandmother was a Polish jew imprisoned in Nazi ghettos and then a Nazi concentration camp for almost a year until liberated by the Russian army. I remember my first recollection of ever understanding what a tattoo was when I asked her about her numbers on her arm.

If we're having a pissing contest over family lineage and WWII, you're the big winner.

This is retarded.

Mark is okay, Ray is okay, we're having a great ride in beautiful sunshine, we're getting thousands of K's under our belt and everyone who has a servicable motorcycle is loaning their bikes to those less fortunate so everyone has a chance to continue to ride. I've never been on such a long ride (two weeks, 7400km's). I've been on plenty of rides where folks have crashed. I've been on rides where people have died. It has nothing to do with who organizes the ride. But I've never been on a ride that was so well supported, where emergencies have been sorted and resolved so quickly.

We where in a 45 mph speed zone, passing through a small town.
We've been through enough of these small towns to know to follow the posted speed signs. After 45 that they drop again.

Friday was a "high wind day".
Helicopters couldn't fly on tours of the Grand Canyon.

Adam offered me his K1200R for a ride today.
That bike is his pride and joy....enough said.
The group is great, the trips been great, new friendship made.

Hey, lets get along

Mark

Good to hear both Mark & Ray came out of it in one piece...Just came back from a 5 day 4,000K trip to California and back. Had to turn around at Yosemite. Ran out of time. Wrists are still sore a week later :)

Look forward to the stories when you guys get back.

I know I've kinda fallen off the face of the earth for a few weeks, hence why I am just posting this now, my excuse http://www.bcsportbikes.com/forum/showthread.php?p=864631#post864631

VERY glad to hear you two are alright, both of you are good friends of mine and riding wouldn't be the same without ya....heal up quick :rockon

Remember....(for you country fans)


Scars heal... glory fades
And all were left with are the memories made (extremely good ones from what I hear)
Pain hurts, but only for a minute (on behalf of the gear)
Life is short so go on and live it (exactly what you two were doing)
Cause the chicks dig it:laughing :laughing

See you two soon!

Bill... I don't think I've ever ridden with you. If I have...Probably forgot all about it. Seems you have nothing to offer but shitty advice.
What makes you think it was all about speed. For someone that knows
squat all about this trip you wouldn't even know whatever happened.
The only fatality here is your ignorance in what you don't know.
:evil D:)batman)K :evilgin
Of course it was all about speed someone ran into someone else. This does not happen unless some sort of speed is involved otherwise it is all about both bikes being stopped which in this case is not possible since one bike hit another.

We all seem to be learning about this collision - at least the insurance issues after the fact.

Dark Knight since you were at the scene, a quick question did you happen to rear end FJR..eh?, or are you the key witness?

Inquiring minds want to know if it was you.. when you are stepping up to the plate on the difference between the loss and what is being offered?

abyssus abyssum invocat
