    motorcycling pet peeves

    was reading a thread here and someone said "other adventure activities" Im not sure why the term "adventure" irks me, probably my age. I'm waiting for "tactical" motorcycle accessories, or dream of dreams the worlds first "tactical adventure bike" Is there something wrong with me? If you have a peeve, maybe simply saying so here might help. Cool until then go "drive" your bike.

    For me it's gear that is sold as waterproof but isn't.

    O thats legit, its totally normal to feel hurt about that! it probably should be said that this thread is designated a "safe place" where you can share your truth without fear of being bullied.

    "Tactical" has been claimed many years ago haha... (no peeves come to mind at the moment as i'm headed out the door to ride to work in the rain haha). though i'm sure i'll think of some today while at work and post them later. :{)

    Here is a room full of KLR650's "highly modified" to run on DIESEL/JP8 fuel. Designer/builder Fred Hayes shown pictured with AMA's Hall-of-Famer Craig Vetter. :{)

    I've had to take a hard look at myself to realize my dislike for the word adventure stems from my wounded ego for not being the first adventure motorcyclist. I totally could have been, I just didn't think about it. So I figure I'll try to be the first adventurist in another category. So I proclaiming to be the worlds first "adventure walker", even if "adventure shoes" have already been invented the title could still stick. only time will tell.

    I think “world’s first adventure crawler” is probably still available.
