Mr. Bounce,
You'a scary dude! Cute little musket you got there. Play nice with it!
Below is a picture of my Uncle's UAV. We call it Santa's "Naughty" Sleigh.
If you're naughty, it delivers a "package" down your chimney!



My answer to this thread remains the same. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy riding motorcycles.
They're my second favorite ride. And if you think your aim is impressive; I've been shoot'in the same hole for 40+ years.
Aint missed yet!

Happy Holidays!

So my previous post did not include the intended attached photo.
My copy/paste doesn't appear to be working. I'm a newbie here.
Someone help out a brother, and attach a photo of a military drone.
Thank You!

All Cruise Controls I've known of for many, many years have an on/off. But I don't consider that a "cancel" because you can't use the "resume" function after you turn them off and back on again.

I'm not scary at all. Just having fun out to 800 yards. Out past that it starts getting to be work. In fact, the .308 Winchester is enough "work" that, as I get better at logging indirect fire to compensate for it's rainbow trajectory, I have a new companion for it in 6.5 Creedmoor so that should make 1000 - 1500 yards fun and past that... back to work.


As for your photo, you can't use the link from the Bing search like you did. You have to go to the pic, view it, and copy that URL (which will end in something like .jpg or .gif).

Ridden wet. Put up hard.

Ok Radiostatic, are you still around cause enquiring minds really wanna know?

What’s better than an fjr ? Don’t know,, with all the trouble I’ve had with my fjr, everytime it f’d up big. I went looking for a replacement and so far keep coming back to the fjr for me. I’ve looked hard at the bmw offerings which come the closest as a replacement other than being more expensive, less reliable with few dealers might, maybe someday be the alternative.

Same with the “new” Goldwing which is close in size now but about 200lbs heavier with smaller bags and topcase (I have a Shad 50l) for a lot more money,,,, anyway it looks like my fastest red 2014 will be with me for a while,,,

although the new indian FTR is very interesting (huge fun!) except that for the same basic money as an fjr you get chain drive and no luggage plus I think an fjr would just flat spank it,,,, my .02,,,, happy new year guy’s !

Radiostatic, what say ye ? Just a troll ?
