One of the things I love about riding old bikes is, you feel like you are going a lot faster than you actually are.

Nothing like bad suspension, a raucously noisy engine, and skinny tires to put you in fear for your life. So when (not if) I do crash one, hopefully the damage to all concerned will be minimal.

WTF is wrong with kids these days? Do I need help?

It is Friday, and I’ve had an adult beverage, but WTF?

Male teacher on underage student is creepy, verboten, sinful, terrible, stupid, horrendous, and other adjectives, in my book. Not to be tolerated. Never, anytime, noway. But my view on beautiful female teacher on male student is different, somehow. I don’t know why, but it is.

Good golly, a teacher like this was the subject of my dreams, when I was in high school. If only? If this teacher had decided to share her gifts with me, I can promise you, no one would ever have heard about it. What is wrong with kids these days? OMG, this is just hard to believe.

Look at that face! Every school boy’s dream, come true for a lucky teenager or two, or more. What wrong could have come from this? I just don’t get it.

I know I’m old fashioned, but I’ll leave it up to y’all if I need help.

You cant have it both ways. The old double edged.............

Young boys with a high libido and no knowledge and a horny schoolteacher.......hmmmm. I had plenty of infatuations with several high school teachers. Unfortunately they didnt pick it up. That was high school, I was 16. This kid is 13, that to me is the issue. Legality says 18 is okay, if I were with an 18yo now, she'd kill me. Times have changed, age of consent has not. Most kids by 13 are already practicing sex acts that we would blush at. If it were a male teacher and a female 13 yo how would you feel?


PS, yes, yes sir, indeed Id nail her.........but alas, I am a man pig, less virtue and morality

Life is full of double standards. That won't change until the women figure out how to fertilize each other and eliminate us males completely.

Great story. I've only seen one seahorse, in the IRL hanging on to something attached to the dock, neat little brown critter.

Well, in New Hampshire, where the legal age for marriage (with parental consent) is 13 for girls and 14 for boys, your granny was getting close to being an old maid!

(Contrast that to Italy, where men don't leave home until their mid thirties!)

Laws about sex are derived from social attitudes. And that means some wrinkled old prunes (who haven't had sex in at least a dozen years) are the folks who are passing them.

So don't be shocked when the rules are FUBAR.

It's not about exact age of consent, it's about holding an inordinate amount of power in the "relationship", also about the taboo breaking.
A kid who can drive themselves is too old for her? Think about that.

So I wonder if this is gonna be the next thing then, these ADV scooters. That's gotta sting, especially to KTM since they just brought that 790 out.
