Rat Bike Question

Is there a minimum amount of bailing/speaker wire content for a ratbike to be a ratbike?

If so;

Can other factors such as a seat covered (badly) with duct take, or having not one single unoxidized component make up for this?

Also, what could make up for having two fully functional side covers? Hopefully prodigous oil leaks that attract dirt, and one of them rattles (although you can't hear it over the muffler heat shield rattling).

Inquiring minds want to know...

This is for a 1980 GS550E if it matters.

Aside from the obvious changes previously stated by Valgar, my soon to be indoctrinated Minister of Impregnation (it's all over for you, Jaded), the most important social difference would be that Dances with Wolves would never have been made thereby effectively nullifying Kevin Costner's career and sparing us from The Postman. Consequently Kevin Costner would fail as an actor and take up work in Las Vegas as a Chuck Norris impersonating Stripper at Gay Nightclubs. He would die of asphyxiation in a gruesome bukkake incident in 1998.

Is Planegray coming to the Alameda meet tomorrow night?
No, Planegrey actually died in an unusual radation accident as a result of 3 UC Berkeley interns trying to use a particle accelerator to make a better Popcorn Popper. When he was vaporized his matter blended with an extradimensional being named Stan who was perusing our strange Plane of existence, thus trapping him here in the shape of Planegrey. Our atmosphere is sadly berefit of the oils and salt necessary for him to survive so we may see Stan/Planegrey seeking out Bar Peanuts, as they are his only true means of survival.

Dear Eldritch,

I'm perplexed by your loathing of the number formerly known as 'X'. Is 'e' not another such imposter? At least 'X' masqueraded as a rational number.

I'm confused about the reason behind your disdain.

Is 'i' acceptable to you? Not only is it not rational, it isn't even irrational. It's imaginary. And sometimes 'j' pretends to be 'i' for the convenience of engineers. Surely that can't be cricket?

Please do the needful - supply guidance so that I can begin to remove letters from my keyboard. Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Confused of the Mission

P.S. I might attempt to seek your wisdom in person in Alameda. Should I bring a burned offering?
E is acceptable in that aside from being a number and a letter it is also a very interesting chemical pasttime, so we can't really be mad at it. It may seem strange, but it's only high.

I'm sure that this is all very confusing to you Britons, and really I suggest you leave English to we Americans, as it is our language. Stick to speaking British and playing Soccer with the rest of your people and you will be fine.

Well, much like the Spiny Echidna and the Duck Billed Platypus, Catdog is a monotreme which means that it all comes in and goes out of the same hole. This unfortunate state of existence is actually why the spiny echidna was the first mammal to invent mouth wash in 4569 B.C. Consequently, since catdog has two heads and therefore two holes, some scientists argue that a change in name would be appropriate. The common suggestion by biologists of that belief is the Bitreme, but Dr. Hubert Nance of Hoboken, New Jersey has suggested the much more endearing "Slavering Yuckmouth." Keep on eye on your scientific journals for the updates.

Excellent name Dr. Strange, too bad about that movie project sitting on the shelf. Check out a film from full moon productions called Dr. Mordrid.

Regarding the GS? Well, owning a 1980 bike puts you in one of two realms. You're either rat or classic. Luckily you don't have to work at doing the sort of crashing and painting that is necessary to make a modern bike a rat. Old man time has done most the work for you in the last quarter of a century. A good rule of thumb is put the wire where you need it and don't be shy. Putting unnecessary wire on the bike that serves no purpose is the makings of a "Mouse Bike" which is poserish and lame, however putting LOTS of wire around a broken blinker arm assembly is a GREAT idea because not only does it show your rat bike pride, you can clip some off with your underseat tool kit if you need to tie some other bit down while out on the road. Keep up the good work!

Oh. OK. At least you two didn't "do it".

So who would first launch this Bukkake Bomb?

It's complicated, but remember that thing in Ghostbusters when they talked about not crossing the streams? Well it's sort of like that, but we need this great Ginger Ape as a catlyst in the middle. Don't worry about it. See you tonight.

Silly boy, crusted blood is sexy and the advantage of black is you don't have to wash it out unless you invested in a velvet cape and the blood is mucking up your plush. If that is the case, you should find a good dry cleaner you can trust to be discreet (Russians are the best choice for this) and in the meanwhile invest in a nice black Leather or PVC garment for when you're doing "Wetwork" and keep the velvet for more casual times when you can put your professional interests aside.

Kevin Collins, Amber Schwartz Garcia, and Jimmy Hoffa have been planning it for years. Sorry about the Cantaloupe.

Because you have the fashion sense of a Water Buffalo on Viagra.
