I’d need to stock up on .303 ammo, though. RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Blog Post Keeping it Real – s... Blog Post Thursday Thoughts Blog Post Notes on Race and Gratitu... 32 COMMENTS Oh… THAT could be fun to commute in! You’d need to get one of those old leather flying helmets, goggles, and maybe fly a TRUMP 2020 flag from the back. A guy could get alot done with such a fine machine. You could take it up to the riot, and stand off a hundred yards or so. Ideal for SoCal, but will it pas emissions? Where I live there are no emissions tests. If you get one, WSF, the ideal strategy would be to store it with me. Where you live a Universal Carrier would be more appropriate! Ok, I agree. This would not be optimal in the snow. At least the machine gun. I wonder if a 3.5 Rocket Launcher could discretely be mounted in my pickup canopy? Raise, fire, retract. Maybe we build a modular unit disguised cleverly as a camper shell and have the ordnance lift from the shell, pivot to the target, fire and then retract? Dr Jim would be needed to design it. Hmmmmmm…… I’ve often wished for an appropriate response to those yoots driving boom box cars who pull alongside at stop lights and rattle the filings in my teeth til the light changes. Do let us know when these become available, please. I see what you did there…smart, very smart. hehe I could use one of those whenever I have to go into Kansas City. Where could you park it such that it would not be stolen? Sure, we could booby trap it with ten pounds of C-4, and it would vaporize inner city people, but the bike would vaporize as well. Meh. Looks cool, but give me a WWII Jeep with a .30 cal mounted on the passenger’s side firing forward and either another .30 or a .50 in a pintle mount. Or an M8 Greyhound or it’s M20 scout-car version. Though a Cadillac-Gage Commando in any of it’s iterations would allow me to carry people and stuff and still shoot the snot out of people. I’ve never been fond of less-than-4 wheeled vehicles. But then again, I like vans and trucks much more than just a car. Are you ever satisfied? Yes. I was very satisfied with my Ford E-150 ‘Serial Killer’ van. And my GMC Safari van. And now my Ram ProMaster City van. All allow me to get me and mine wherever I want, with what I want (and I don’t travel light.) with good a/c (well, the Ford didn’t have a/c, but I was younger so I could deal with it better) and heat and protection from rain, snow, sleet, hail, blood-splatter from targets and other liquid threats. Can’t do that on a motorscooter, now, can you? And… I knew a guy who was into selling Class III weaponry to various police forces. His van, subtly up-armored, had a pintle mount inside of the side door and the rear door and depending on where he was travelling (Miami-Dade area in the 70’s) he’d have one of his demo weapons mounted on each spot with ‘interested parties’ manning the guns while his shotgun rider was carrying a Thompson with a drum mag. Now that sounds like a fun way to go camping… That sounds like a man after my own heart. We took down a van once in Muscoy (suburb of San Bernardino, CA), in a rather ethnic area. Cartel rig. Having been warned, it was a front approach. They had a loaded M-2 loaded with linked ball on a pintle mount set to fire through the rear doors. That sort of thing always made me consider (thereafter) what sort of folks drove vans…Beans…yeah. How about the Vespa 150 TAP? Is that the Vespa with the recoilless rifle that the French sent to Southeast Asia? Yeah – scooter with attitude 🙂 https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/3e/Vespa_militare2.JPG Thing Of Beauty! It would be better if there was a MAGA flag streaming behind it. I love everything about this post. Maybe the DLC could acquire one? There would be an internal power struggle over who would ride it. I think I’d rather have the WW2 Beemer version, but that convertible AA mount for the gun is a hoot and a half. -Kle. The gun makes the bike. For those who commute: https://thumbs.gfycat.com/PalatableGraveHeifer-size_restricted.gif THAT is the only Prius that I would consider owning. I would rather have an APC. Comments are closed.
