1. WARNING : Server upgrade imminent Hi all, looks as if I might get some downtime in the next week which could be reasonably purposed to reinstalling and upgrading the TCE server - this will obviously mean some downtime, which I will attempt to minimise, but bear with me.

What went wrong ?

    Guy wanted to pop around town, but decided to get on a big ass motorbike instead of his easy/convenient scooter?

    Blue jeans are not, and never have been, suitable wear for motorcycle riding. The operator should be wearing proper safety gear that doesn't turn into a mass of wound-embedded fibres the second it touches the incredibly abrasive road surface.

    Once saw a woman in a bikini and no helmet riding 60mph on the back of a motorbike on a freeway in Los Angeles. If she'd fallen off... shudder.

    I think it is someone asking which way they should indulge their mid-life crisis. Follow youthful trend or be more traditional and get a bike that only exists for the ailment.

    Oh it now seems to have more text. So, I think what went wrong here is that the person who made the page became deeply confused at some point in their life about the significance of other people's transport/hobby preferences and the nature of maturity/masculinity.

    Yes, obviously trying to convince himself he's not an idiot for buying a big motorbike he didn't need. Made him feel like a "man" when he bought it.

    Oddly, I didn't need a stupidly big bike to feel masculine!

    I also don’t get this idea that people who use scooters are somehow childish. Don’t use one personally but it’s just another form of transport. Shrug.

    I once saw a similarly (un) dressed man riding a motorbike, but wearing a helmet. I thought "why bother?"
