Bag Stolen

Recommended Posts

I see it as being similar to people buying nice cars, a good friend of yours has a very nice Lamborghini doesn't he? Now if I was a betting man I'd stake a wager that you haven't made any similar comments to him or mocked him as to why he chooses to drive such a car, am I right? And for such a educated man with mountains of common sense the recent post to your 'friend' cmjantje was a bit out of character and perhaps a tad unnecessary, as was the comment about his dog.

Maybe I didn't express myself clear enough. :whistling:

I certainly prefer a neighbour with a beautiful Italian sportscar above

one with the kind of dog that was mentioned.

Not only for safety, not only to look at but also to listen to: I would prefer the car.

I guess it is about two years ago that we saw this horrible picture

of the child that had been torn apart by two rottweilers belonging

to a Dutchman living in Thailand. Thai newspapers tend to show this

kind of pictures without restrictions.

And of course these dogs had always been very friendly to children

and so on, and so on. If the neighbors wouldn't have had a child, or

it would have been locked in a cage nothing would have happened...

The gentleman that built the wall is also a foreigner.

He might not have been willing to take the risk that somebody one day

would say that nothing would have happened if he had built a wall.

So he did ... as simple as that!

Why people enjoy to drive a beautiful Italian sportcar even if living

in a country with speed limits and not in, for instance, Germany?

Very simple: Just take it for a spin and you will know!

I wouldn't drive a Ford if I could afford one.

Limbo :yohan:

PS: I always loved the sound of engines. The first engine I owned

was the one that was hanging under my first moped, the NSU Quickly.

Not even a barking poodle can beat that.

Listen and shiver:

Nice engine Limbo. Sounds surprisingly refined. Just twist that throttle for me one more time . :)

Very true Limbo, most thieves are opportunist thieves but very unlike you to be so sarcastic! You said to keep my observations coming in another post so there's another one for you.

As well as this one, some other posts I've read from you since you came back from your 'honeymoon' are very different to the ones prior to it. OK, they are still often very interesting, informative and witty but they now come with an added ingredient that wasn't there before.

I just read that you have masses of common sense (as well as obviously being very well-educated) so I wonder why this has happened? There have been quite a few put-downs when people have mentioned they enjoy riding big bikes, something which is a personal choice and brings enjoyment to many people. I see it as being similar to people buying nice cars, a good friend of yours has a very nice Lamborghini doesn't he? Now if I was a betting man I'd stake a wager that you haven't made any similar comments to him or mocked him as to why he chooses to drive such a car, am I right? And for such a educated man with mountains of common sense the recent post to your 'friend' cmjantje was a bit out of character and perhaps a tad unnecessary, as was the comment about his dog.

Please forgive me if my most recent observation isn't to your liking but I'm a bit saddened by the attitude of the post-honeymoon :yohan:

Love the NSU Quickly Limbo, very nice, I might try and import one and find a Ninja to race.

I'm not sure how you could think I was comparing a Rottweiler to a Lamorghini but I can assure you I wasn't and if you read my post again you will see that.

There is already a Rottweiler topic where you can post your tragic story about the Rottweilers attacking the baby. And that story just proves my point about the media's morbid fascination with these dogs. Dogs attack people/children every day but it's never reported unless it's a particular breed that sells stories and the history of the dogs is never told either. If you read more about these two particular dogs had no training or socialization, were often locked in a cage, were both males that hadn't been nuetered and had been regularly beaten as part of their guard dog training. They were not family pets and had had very little interaction with the children and often fought between themselves and neighbours dogs. Any dog with a similar history as these would be dangerous, it's not because they were Rottweilers!

The Lamborghini was mentioned as I have read quite a few posts from you that ridicule/mock people for owning a bigger bike but I'm sure you wouldn't say anything to your good friend with the Lamborghini if he bought one. The car/bike that people own is a personal choice and one that brings enjoyment to a lot of people, it doesn't automatically mean they are more likely to have an accident or that they are re-living their youth etc etc

I told you before VF that I can't help you.

I feel very sorry for you.

In the posting you had removed by a moderator I explained how

and where you can get help.

It's a pity that you didn't want to share that information

with the other members of this forum. More people might want

to know where to go when they come in that situation.

I know that for some, including yourself, this forum has a

therapeutic function. You don't have to be ashamed for that.

Many foreigners slowly but sure get alienated especially when

they live in the middle of nowhere, have no friends etc etc.

Try to be a little bit more positive.

There is misery enough in this world.

You can not blame me for the fact that you were mobbed at school,

or that the girls in your home country were not specially fond of

the pimples you had long into your twenties.

...as I have read quite a few posts from you that ridicule/mock people for owning a bigger bike ...

When I was eighteen I bought a fifth hand Jawa, two years later an old Norton.

As you could know from the motorbike thread: I was driving around on a chopper

when I was in my early twenties (the one on the picture, a Triumph Bonneville

with a HD rear wheel). Maybe you didn't recognize me, as I went to another

barber those days...

Here in Chiang Rai I made a tour with 'The Rangers', managed by Dutch R.

On a simple, but very comfortable Phantom. That, a couple of years ago,

was my last ride.

The last seven years I had a Yamaha Serox standing in my garage.

Once a while I warmed it up and that was it.

I know the feeling, don't worry. I am sorry that you placed my postings in a

negative light. There were certainly not meant that way, sooner as a soft warning.

All my life I have had friends with motorbikes.

And I lost just a few too many of them ...

L.

Tip: Do some exercise before you start your bike!

Well said Limbo.

My biking experience is 35 years out of date now but I still worry about my good friends out there trying to protect themselves from a 24 wheel monstrosity with a crash helmet.

I need to get around to selling my phantom which has saddle bags, and a Quad if anyones interested. Oh, sorry, wrong topic.

reminds me of a youtube track, "you spin me round (like a record) . Dead or Alive B)

Very considerate but what about the folk who enjoy them?!

Don't burst my bubble Jubby, in my head it's a KLX I'm on, not a Nouvo.

Gutted I missed the mac-flash, if that's a regular spot of yours I'm sure I'll have the chance to see it again, I'll start to carry my camera around with me, the one with the zoom lens ;)
