Ha ha! I liked your video. I liked the riding. I am a boomer. I like talking politics. They made a rule here not to talk politics so other than a few occasional comments about the stupid liberal commie Democratic idiots in Sacramento who don't know what the hell they are doing I tend not to bring it up. Their game their rules.

However, I repeat, I did enjoy your video. Not the apology so much, but the the riding looked like fun. Thanks, Tony

That was a great apolitical polical video! Bike crossing river was mighty impressive.
Speaking of great stuff.... President Trump's recent Twitter in Farsi to the people of Iran was the most "LIKED" tweet in the history of Twitter. Many there would like to make Persia great again.

Haha Glad you guys liked it! Didn't expect that reaction but glad some of you can take a joke!
What's not to like!

Great riding footage and funny commentary. I am a Boomer, so I guess that I am too dumb and/or too old to understand, or care, about whatever political position you were taking. Were you able to get that Jeep out of that mud by itself or did it require external assistance?

OK...I'll be the GOF.
Age is the greatest revenge...in time you'll see how wrong you were.
I can only guess at your age, but I assume you're still under 30....the point in one's life where one realizes just how full of shit they were, up until then.
By the time you reach "our" age...I can guarantee that you will feel the same way about the younger generations as we did about yours, and our parents felt about ours...ad infinitum.
Age is the greatest revenge....and the IGNORE button is helpful.

Glad you can be cool about it, unlike some of your peers. Buddy had to hook to it with his f150 to get the jeep out. The same jeep crossed that river that I crossed with but had a much easier time. (We were camping. All my gear was in that jeep for the crossing, just in case) First time I crossed on my bike took 10 minutes. had to pull the filter in the middle of the river and drain the carb! Don't tell the EPA lol. You see just the return trip in my video, in which the bike only died once in and fired back up with a little patience.

Get a set of snow chains for that Jeep and you will swear it is a different vehicle.
Chains in the mud work very well!
Good advice but it's my friend's jeep. He was talkin about gettin some mud boggers on it after he kept gettin stuck in that hole. There was more than one attempt for sure.

I'm a liberal boomer, but who cares? I like it here because I can have a discussion with my conservative and liberal brothers without being attacked. I get full political saturation elsewhere, like arrows coming at me from just about every direction. I think we need more of what brings us together, and less of the other. Maybe our "ideals" are no longer so ideal.

The minute this forum becomes a bashing ground for political ideals, is the same minute I'm gone.

I think I crossed that same river once but at the time I was on an '83 XR200R. I think I recognized some of my testosterone still floating down the river in the video. :eek:

It's at Earl's Ford on the Georgia side. This is a small crossing just before the actual Ford which is now illegal to attempt. $1000 fine per tire including the spare! Yeah, I think I could smell it, too. But, then, I peed on a tree and it went away.

Just kiddin'. The last time I crossed the Chattooga on motorcycle was over a bridge on Hwy 28 on an '85 BMW K100RT to the tune of banjos playing.

The motorcycle parts were also great. Glad you decided to stick around.

Good Video Adam...the truth behind the "Banning of Politics" on this site is simple. Back in the Day{2014-2016 or so} we brought up politics often, but then a few got "Butt Hurt" and guess what? They were Liberal/Progressive/Socialists or whatever they want to be called.....and the head a**clown, at the time, himself being a flaming lefty, decided to put a ban on it....and he is no Boomer. Most of the so called "Boomers" on here are Right or middle of the road types, who didn't mind bashing a few lefties, and we let the lefties fight back....of course being the weak links, their fighting never quite measured up...so they cried to the then Administrator {who still lurks/trolls around here}, and he agreed, thus blocking Political Speech and Posts {sort of}...of course the end result was about 30% of the group taking a hike, some never have come back, others post only on occasion, and still others shook it off like water off a duck's ass...err back. It was NOT the Boomers who wanted politics taken off the table.

But this Boomer, who turns 71 in March, enjoyed your video.... :devilish: regardless of your political views.

  1. Title says it all, here's the Video
    LMFAO As TW_in_BC said "Age is the greatest revenge". I think we were all young dumb and full of cum in our lives
  2. As I got older I realized that being in the thick of things is way too exhausting and sitting back (in my lazyboy) watching is way easier. If I need I can hurl an insult or two and keep on being comfy.
  3. I realized the hard way that bashing my parents generation might put me in the spotlight but forgot the saying "It's better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt"
  4. I must admit that your apology satirical as it may be did strike a chord (y)

Now let’s get back to the subject of testosterone…

Typically, if two males of any species get equally side tracked by hormones, they will fight until there is a clear winner. This is a basic mating instinct, the stronger male wins the female, and thus passes on his genes to the next generation

Once you understand the basic drive of this reasoning, reproductive superiority, and the Darwinian theory of evolution, you will start to see the wisdom of this

It is always the “young buck” that pushes against authority, ‘twas ever thus, yet you remain a valued member of our community. In time, I hope that you will understand why you haven’t been “banned” – to do so would have been an injustice, to all of us

You “push” against authority, expecting to be banned by your actions – yet you survive ?

Think about it, the whole theory of “acceptance”, simply because you ride a TW

There Is no right or wrong here, simply individuals expressing themselves – there is no need to “push”, no expectation of right or wrong – just a bunch of TW riders being themselves - and that’s what we’re about here ……

Shrug. This Xer will just sit here and watch the geezers and whippersnappers lob insults back and forth. World keeps turning under my fat tires.
