« on: October 20, 2016, 08:48:24 pm »


I'm seriously considering pulling the trigger on one.  I think I want a full dress vs. a racer.

    What am I looking at?

    Did a bicycle and a motorcycle have a baby?

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.
    Ray Chapman, used to say that the 125-grain Magnum load’s almost magical stopping power was the only reason to load .357 instead of .38 Special +P ammunition into a fighting revolver chambered for the Magnum round. I agree. - Massad Ayoob

    Paradoxically it is those who strive for self-reliance, who remain vigilant and ready to help others.

    That's exactly what the early motorcycles were.  The bicycle pre-dated the internal combustion engine by a considerable margin and only when the internal combustion engine and lubricant technology advanced to the point where smallish, air cooled engines were possible, did the marriage take place.

    Early motorcycles were bicycles with engines.  Google up images from 1903 though 1920 or so.  Pedaling was how you started the engine.
