The government today announced that it is changing its emblem from an Eagle to a CONDOM because it more accurately reflects the government's political stance. A condom allows for inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects a bunch of pricks, and gives you a sense of security while you're actually being screwed.

That creep Michael Kontos sounds familiar. On the R6messagenet a year or so ago he offered fairings for sale, took the cash and never delivered the parts. Then after a bunch of pestering from board members and numerous phone calls he finally returned the cash. I think he took a few other people for a ride on various other forums as well.

I'm glad he got what was coming to him.

Actually just checked. He cheated a bunch of guys over there and in other forums. Did you guys read the DA's press release. I bet theft go down big time...at least for a month or two... f-ing thieves!!!

Have Fun!

Who're you calling FOCKER?! It's Funseeker6! I'm all about the good times!!

video

another Post article

turns out one of the guys over on motorush helped get the bad guys... (motorush doesn't allow direct links, cut&paste or goto the flamethrower section...scum of the earth thread)

and it turns out, no surprise...they've been doing it for awhile., are members on 1000rr.com, r6message.net and other boards, problems dating back 3 years and in some cases the users had been banned for bad deals...

Supposedly one of the ring leaders Christos Demetroules is a frequenter of many of the local bike forums. Maybe you guys remember the name Da954rrStuna or similiar from sportbikes.net or other places.
