    Know the meaning of "One down, four up."

    I am not only the fun loving and irreverant member of CCW, but I am also the fun loving and irreverant member of The V-twin forum. Some of the bikers here will feel quite at home there.

    Yes, there are pictures of pretty girls.

    Check out the place I'm starting to call home:

    What the devil does that mean?

    And I didn't see any girls. Just a small gun subforum and a whole bunch of talk about oil.

    Egads I even understood some of it. Don't frighten me like that Tourist.

    Euc,

    Are you teasing me? I hit the link, and I got the right forum. Are you eating Reeses Pieces and tuna fish sandwiches after 9:00 PM, again?

    Take off the Bob Mackey dress and go to bed. Obviously, if "one down, four up" means nothing, then you probably get the name the dweebs had in my high school. We called them "Purndils."

    If you don't know what that means, let me give you a clue:

    Purndils are nothing in the clutch.

    Would that be the shift pattern from neutral on a hog??

    I mostly rode rice burner dirt bikes myself.

    F350,

    Yes, that's correct. I just needed something to tease Euc with. He's like the little brother I never wanted, and this is how we say "hello" to each other.

    He's also the only human I have ever known to get his spleen caught in the extractor of an automatic pistol.

    BTW, a 'Purndil' is a guy who can only drive a car with an automatic transmission. It means P--R--N--D--L, the letters on steering column for Park, Reverse, Neutral, Drive and Low.

    I am also checking my files for an older picture of an 'automatic revolver.' That should scare him.

    Actually I've seriously lamented that we got rid of our last manual transmission when I was 14 and 10 months old. I've always felt handicapped that I don't have any experience driving a manual transmission because they're never going away and they do get better gas mileage. The closest I've come to driving a stickshift was on a riding lawn mower.

    I've seen one of those "Automatic revolvers" by the way, well a picture of one anyway. If I had more money than brains I'd want one just for the sake of its novelty.

    Then again if you sent me $15 I'd have more money than brains.

    Talking

    Well, let me say this about that....I used to be a one down, "three up" guy and had only stick shift vehicals....well, middle age settled in and with all the blasted stop and go traffic, I traded my stick 4x4 in on a jazzed up, power windows, power locks, AIR CONDITIONED, and yes AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION 4x4 S-10.....my little Mule....I'm spoiled and proud of it. My left foot has had 6 years of relaxation and there ain't no goin back now!

    It's also the shift pattern on my rice burner (Yamaha Midnight Venture).

    The first vehicle I drove was "three on the tree" baby.

    I know some of you guys remember the collar on the steering column to turn on and off the back up lights on Chevys. How about "Lightning Rod" shifters?

    You'll never truly understand the whole "One down, four up" thing until something like this happens to you.




    A very good friend of mine lost his finger between the sprocket and chain of his 929 while in the process of doing a stunt show in Florida.

    Darkmind,

    Send my regards to your friend. Tell him I'm a Harley rider, and my personal message to him is "Walk it off." My prayers to his recovery.

    P95Carry,

    Don't fear the dark-side of the V-twin forum. I had been around too many white collar types and 'thumpers' at my church. I needed to hear people laugh, to feel that solid smack on the shoulder by friends when they tell you to quitcherbitch'n, and the torpedo shot in the pants from a 95-inch motor spinning her guts up. It's a sad day when you forget your roots.

    Hehe - it ain't fear!! Just the darned amount of time I seem to spend ''welded'' to the web! I agree tho - laughter, claps on the back and those vibes from the ''V'' - they count for much - with ya there dude!

    Got quite a few rallies lined up for this summer and that is what gets me feeling good - out with a bunch of comrades - we all enjoy same deal - and love open road.

    Folks who don't ride - non-bikers - they will never understand what we get out of it - and probably no point in tryin' to explain either!

    Sure, now you tell me. Do you know how much time I've wasted this week? I needed you, man.

    PS. Where will you be riding?

    Tourist - not sure of your location ... but for me - pretty much exclusively in state (PA) - and most times fairly/relatively local.

    We have the big Johnstown PA ''Thunder in the Valley'' - which is close to mid summer IIRC - in September we have the ''Dog Run'' outa Windber PA - both excellent meets. Other things tho are actually quite small - but good.

    I'd like to make it to FL, NC, VA - all sorts - some big meets - even Carlisle PA and Gettysburg PA but - know what? Some of these are so darned huge - takes the edge off for me.

    I also when saying ''in state'' all but refuse to go places I am not meant to carry.!!

    So what's your ''20''?
