I used to awake everyday in a homosexual panic when I lived near the corner of Cumming Street and Seaman Avenue in Inwood.

My 150cc scooter gets 50mph+ against the wind, up a slight hill.

I'm waiting for all the no-helmet, short/t-shirt crowd to experience the wonders of road rash.

It's not just scooter riders. I saw about 50 motorcyclists, mostly Harleys, this weekend and about 12 helmets between them.

Did you perfect it?
 
2008-07-15 11:38:56 PM  
Yes, my fair city's downtown actually hosts the intersection of Young & Gay, as well as the aforementioned Gay & High. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

If you look on craigslist, there's always a TON of ads for Harleys in any area of the country. Someone once said it's because as guys go through their midlife crisis, they get a Harley, realize that they can't ride the damn thing, and then they try to sell it.

But yeah, riding a motorcycle without full gear, even down couple blocks, is simply retarded. There's plenty of stories of long time riders with 300k+ miles of experience getting into accidents (be it their fault or not).

I guess people think that skin grafts are fun.

It always amused me that Baltimore's "The Block" (strip club zone) is at the intersection of Gay and Commerce streets.

/ dunno if they have scooter parking.
 
2008-07-15 11:47:23 PM  
I hear they're planning additional spots for Yaris owners.
 
2008-07-15 11:48:34 PM  
When will there be segway parking?

As the owner of a Yaris and a scooter, I'm really getting a kick out of this reply.

Even better is Gay St used to be a one way, west-bound traffic only. They recently converted it to east-bound and west-bound. For a period of time there was a sign up saying 'Gay Street now goes both ways'.

Who puts an Art School on Gay Street? That's like putting a technology institute on Dweeb Boulevard.

Living in this town (Columbus) is like having a permanent face-palm. As long as your a fag (which I'm not); this town will cater to your every need. Ironically, Gay st. is the straightest part of the city.

nah too close to victorian villiage/german villiage/the short north. although upper alrington probably has the most closeted homos.

C'mon now, I grew up in Worthington and it wasn't so bad. As far as most of the rest of the area, yes, I'm with you on the facepalm.

My town has a Gay Street also. My favorite intersections are Gay-Broad and Gay-Community. No kidding.

Kymco B&W 250. Can break every speed limit in the province with twist left over.

You may have me on HP and top speed, but lets see who can bring home the bacon (and eggs, OJ, some veggies, beer) under the seat.

And you Marauder and Rebel 250s? See ya, bye-bye!

I was replacing a wheel at a motorcycle junkyard, and checking out some smashed to shiat bikes, saying that guy must have been obliterated, pointing out one mangled heap. The junk guy told me he knew the guy, he'd walked away without a scratch. Then he pointed out a crotch rocket that looked untouched and told me the literally had to scape it's rider off the pavement.

Apparently riders who live fix a salvageable bike, those that don't get their rides sold cheap by their survivors.

There should be a Fark filter for this type of thing so that no one who knew your best friend's Mom *ever* gets offended.

I saw about 50 motorcycles on the highway over the weekend, most of them Harleys, and about 10 helmets between them.

Do people not like their brains?


So which one is it?

Well scooter is the official vehicle of gay.

I parked my scooter next to a lesbian's at the gay bar tonight.
 
2008-07-16 3:43:08 AM  
Do they have to park in reverse?
 
2008-07-16 4:18:08 AM  
Nothing beats when they were doing construction in the area and I saw a large flashing road sign that read:

GAY ST IS NOW A 2-WAY

I haven't laughed that hard at a sign since someone reprogrammed one of them to read KLATU, VERATA, NIKTU.

Are you taking the piss? What the hell does the headline have to do with you, your mom or your mom's dead best friend?

/Vespa ET4 - can make a 1 hour car trip across Dublin in 15 mins on my scooter.

Gay and High st. must be great - they have all the best drugs, the gheysters I mean.
