      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

death rides a pale horse

 

Riding hard, high in the saddle

Winged steed of unwearing flight

Sweeping through air just like fire

Swift of the foot, great of might

 

Hear the screams (ow!)

Feel the bite

We ride with death

Tonight

 

Here it comes

You better hide

Shoot the guns

You're gonna die

 

Conquering all, spreading terror

Hoofs gallop in thunderous pound

Devouring the souls of the wretched

Trampling them down to the ground

 

Gripping the reins of destruction

Made of steel on his hands

Holder of forces immortal

Slaughtering all in his path

Riding on the range,

I've got my hat - on,

I've got my boots - dusty.

 

I've got my saddle

On my horse.

He's called....T-t-t-t-t-trigger

Of course.

 

I wanna be a cowboy

and you can be my cowgirl

I wanna be a cowboy

and you can be my cowgirl

I wanna be a cowboy

 

Riding on the chuck wagon,

Following my man.

His name is Ted,

Can you believe that?

Camping on the prairie

Plays havoc with my hair.

Makes me feel quite dirty,

Though we all do sometimes

 

I wanna be a cowboy

and you can be my cowgirl

I wanna be a cowboy

and you can be my cowgirl

I wanna be a cowboy

 

Looking like a hero,

Six-gun at my side,

Chewing my tobacco.

Out on the horizon,

I see a puff of smoke.

Indians on the warpath,

White man speak-em with forked tongue.

Or not.

I wanna be a cowboy

and you can be my cowgirl

I wanna be a cowboy

 

My name is Ted,

And one day I'll be dead yo yo

Quick question for you all: I ride on the back of a Honda Blackbird (CBRXX). Loads of fun, but when we hit over 105 my head gets forced back from the wind. I know other people that have had this experience. This bike was definitely designed for a single rider. I last about 1-2 minutes before my neck and shoulder starts aching. Any advice to reduce this? Besides getting my own?

Um...slow down? Either that or start dating a linebacker. Preferably one who gives a rip about your safety. 100+ speeds are for solo riding only, honey.

you might investigate your bf's closet to see if he has a shirt saying

"if you can read this the bitch fell off"

This made me laugh! I was serious about the question but I also knew it had a troll factor of plus 10 . . .

 

Thanks guys . . .

Seriously though, your only options are a) only ride downwind in a hurricane, b) have your head shrunk, or c) ride only on airless worlds. Here on earth, wind happens.

I was cruisin' in my Stingray late one night,

When an XKE pulled up on the right

He rolled down the window of his shiny new Jag,

And challenged me then and there to a drag

I said "You're on buddy -- my mill's running fine,

Let's come off the line now at Sunset and Vine

But I'll go you one better, if you've got the nerve,

Let's race all the way -- to Dead Man's Curve"

(Dead Man's Curve) is no place to play

(Dead Man's Curve) you'd best keep away

(Dead Man's Curve) I can hear 'em say:

"Won't come back from Dead Man's Curve"

The street was deserted late Friday night;

We were buggin' each other while we sat out the light

We both popped the clutch when the light turned green,

You shoulda heard the whine from my screamin' machine

I flew past La Brea, Schwab's and Crescent Heights,

And all the Jag could see were my six taillights

He passed me at Doheny then I started to swerve,

But I pulled her out and there we were - at Dead Man's Curve

(Dead Man's Curve) is no place to play

(Dead Man's Curve... [sounds of skids and crashes] )

(Spoken): "Well, the last thing I remember, Doc,

I started to swerve

And then I saw the Jag slide into the curve

I know I'll never forget that horrible sight,

I guess I found out for myself that everyone was right"

Won't come back from Dead Man's Curve...

(Dead Man's Curve) is no place to play

(Dead Man's Curve) you'd best keep away

(Dead Man's Curve) I can hear 'em say:

"Won't come back from Dead Man's Curve"

(Dead Man's Curve) is no place to play

(Dead Man's Curve) you'd best keep away

(Dead Man's Curve) I can hear 'em say:

"Won't come back from Dead Man's Curve" (fade)

And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.

What would be the problem? With a decent crotch rocket you'd be riding faster than the flying debris, so you wouldn't have to worry about it hitting you; you'd have to worry about hitting IT. In a Cat. 5 storm you'd only be doing a few mph faster than the debris. Find a straight road going in the right direction and you've got a pretty good little video clip on your hands.
