triumph, perhaps

From Schmidt & Weston blog

I have never learnt how to drive a motorcycle. I'm going to have to do something about that since post apocalyptic movies would suggest that motorcycles might be the only vehicle available after society collapses. Not that I'm one of those crazy folk who believe that end times are nigh, but such things are most likely to happen quickly and catch us all by surprise. I have a feeling facebook will somehow be involved.

So just in case the apocalypse sneaks up on me, I'm gonna learn how to drive and fix a motor cycle. I think I would also like to ride a Triumph in a road warrior society, because it sends the right sort of message.


  1. also bicycles will useful in the post apocalypse, less gas and less complicated to fix.

  2. True, but much harder to get away from cyborgs with a bicycle...

    And facebook cyborgs are the biggest problem in my version of post-apocalyptic future time.

  3. You should read "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance"

  4. I tried reading that a couple of times. Just couldn't get through it.

    But I believe I have bad reading habits and lately I've focused on graphic novels.



Thank you for visiting. I live in Vancouver now, but I've lived in other places too. I take photos and make short films about things and people. Please comment and be argumentative. It amuses me.
