Ok. On a more pleasant note. What would one of these be worth?

  • Aviators are gay ass. If you ever drove a Healy with the windshield down or a motorcycle you know that only the heavy Ray ban and wraparounds really work for men. Wayfarers were what us 'motorcycle club' types wore with no helmets.


    here McCallan 12 just almost doubled in price. Eagle Rare is a really great whiskey for a good price. It won like 25 awards and is little known.

  • Actually the ones who call themselves a motorcyle club these days are... maybe gay... I am talking the 70's.. I am talking the guys who stabbed a negro at a rolling stones concert.


    Generally they were not all that tolerant of race and sexual orientation. Their parties were ... epic tho. We will never again see the like.

  • I wear aviator glasses because the large lenses cut down distortion and give a better field of view

    “Everyone should do all in his power to collect and disseminate the truth, in the hope that it may find a place in history and descend to posterity. History is not the relation of campaigns and battles and generals or other individuals, but that which shows the principles for which the South contended and which justified her struggle for those principles. ” - Robert E. Lee

  • Having lived in that time? I will tell you that most of the stuff that those tough fucks did was lame ass dick moves. They were not bright as a rule. They were not particularly brave? if you can use that word. But they were bad ass. They had no moral compass to speak of and that made em dangerous as fuck. Like the plains indians they knew how to ride and they knew enough to have superior numbers or not attack.


    Some were not just stupid but crazy also. Most were really angry. Recently I reconnected with the ex wife of the pres of such a group... he is now dead.. but we have had some interesting conversations. she is an older woman who does remember stuff that would curl your hair. I was scared shitless more than once.


    I only know stuff from the 70's and only on this coast. But look up stuff like the redwood run (which still happens) Look up the biker wars in Oakland. The highway patrol would send every car to 'escort' groups.

  • Yeah, that sounds about right based on everything I've ever seen and heard on the subject.

  • I like aviator sunglasses. Not for riding though. Used to get a pair issued every year or so in the AF. We were authorized because it wasn't unusual for us to have to walk into a dark rapcon from outside.
