Dave, I didn't head over to New Plymouth but Melanie and I did host one a few years ago in Palmerston North.
Hilarious story about the poling booths.

If I may make a small suggestion? Step away from the guns, politics & religion thread for a bit. I've never seen anyone swayed in their ideology here. It only tends to create friction that can't help but spill over to the rest of the forum. Totally your call, of course.

Take care on our winter roads.
Dave.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.

Your right of course about politics, and the pointless expectation you may change one's political outlook, I'm mainly here for posting great Memee's and banter, but when a poster here tried to spin the Christchurch shooter as a left wing eco terrorist, that really pissed me off, and fed me with ambition to not only challenge that but point out the hypocrisy of right wing extremism and extremists. Ill continue with a few great Memee's that come across my desk, but step back from debates. Cheers for the suggestion, you stay safe also. Hey i was out riding a few weeks back with a fellow MV rider, i was on my KTM790, we hit unmarked loose gravel, i went through with nothing more than a 2 wheeled slide, my mate went down on his 800MV writing off the bike and breaking his wrist, we were off to meet the IMOC riders, of which we are members.

Or you can hit up Dave and see if you can get a permanent residency in NZ. You'd have to go through their integration center first (for all new immigrants) but then you will no longer be embarrassed!
The knee jerk reaction of the right - you don’t like it get the fuck out. Jesus. The majority of the people in this country did not vote for the Chimp. The majority of the people here are pro-choice. Are for better, affordable health care. Being embarrassed at least means you’re paying attention as opposed to the usual indifference Americans are so good at. But hey we're number one, right? Rah-rah fuck you.

On the matter of abortion I have a clear opinion.
Women should absolutely have the right to decide in giving birth or not.


A recent interesting article:


https://www.project-syndicate.org/co...hodsee-2019-05


An excerpt:

"
How Banning Abortion Will Transform America



Across the United States, Republican-controlled legislatures are outlawing abortion, with the hope of bringing the issue before a sympathetic Supreme Court. If they succeed in revoking women's reproductive rights, the US will quickly become a different society – one resembling communist-era Romania.


HUNEDOARA, ROMANIA – “It was a horrible time,” recounts one Romanian gynecologist, referring to the period between 1966 and 1990, when abortion and contraception were completely banned under the dictatorship of Nicolae Ceaușescu. “Women refused to have sexual lives, resulting in family fights and abandonment,” she continued. “For a woman, any sexual contact meant only panic and pain.” As another Romanian who lived through the period put it, “It was impossible to have a normal sexual life because of fear of getting pregnant.”

"


Read the rest through the link.

Do not get trapped in the "war" between left and right.
Think. Think and feel. Look at history and then think some more. Imagine.
And act. Do not forget to act.

Nice picture and whiskey is my favorite past time. I’m more of an islay scotch drinker myself.

However, this picture is much more appropriate considering the nature of this here forum:

Thanks Nesca. The Dieci would be the last out of all the bikes to go.

Do you currently have a Bimota? If not and looking for one I’d suggest reaching out to Bob Steinbugler at Bimota Spirit. He’s a former US general importer for Bimota and know pretty much everything to know about the brand. Bimota market in the US is more dim than it is in Europe and hence re-importing may be sensible financially

Actually you’re wrong. The majority of Americans are not pro-choice.

Depends on the poll and how the questions are worded.

You need to expand your sources of information. You are only seeing what you want to see, and not necessarily the entire story/truth.
