Recap Rhyme
   by Wei Young - January 25, 2006

With the unveiling of the S4RS at the NYC Duc Store,
To the Motorcycle Show that was kind of a bore.

This January weekend was bike fun filled,
Even got my buzz on at the Duc Store with drinks that were chilled.

Saw CEO Michael Lock and said what the fock!

I looked around real HARD, but never spotted the Hypermotard!

A bunch of monsters also rolled up into town,
All challenging to see who gets the crown.

Many DESMO members displayed their beasts,
Like candy for the eyes, what a feast!

As Tony the Tiger says, they'rrrrrrrre all GREAT!
Our very own tiger trainer Mishell took 3rd place!

Congrats Mishell! You must be excited!
Hope you celebrated with your Monster and went out to ride it!

Man I was hoping to see that Hypermotard,
Instead I found another bike that got me real hard!

I couldn't leave that Aprilia Supermoto, it was sexy as hell,
Or was it just spokes model Amber and her sweet smell.

Either way I spent a lot of time in that booth seeing what else was new,
While Pinky was in the TPM truck trying on a Kangaroo!

Those new Motogp Kangaroo Leathers are pretty hip,
Avoid one of the 42s, while testing it out we accidentally heard a rip!

Good to see some of the DESMO faces this weekend.
Hope to go on a ride soon, just let me know when!

Subject: how many of you (DESMO members) does it take to change a light bulb?
   by Gary Lee Gordon - January 5, 2006

1 to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed

14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently

7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs

7 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs

5 to flame the spell checkers

3 to correct spelling/grammar flames

6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ...

Another 6 to condemn those 6 as stupid

2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is "lamp"

15 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that "lightbulb" is perfectly correct

19 to post that this group is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb forum

11 to defend the posting to the group saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this group

36 to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior, where to buy the best light blbs, what brand of light bulbs work best for this technique and what brands are faulty

7 to post URLs where one can see examples of different light bulbs

4 to post that the URLs were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL.

3 to post about links they found from the URLs that are relevant to this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group

13 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, and add "Me too"

5 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the light bulb controversy

4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"

13 to say "do a Google search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs"

3 to tell a funny story about their beagle and a light bulb

1 group lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and startit all over again.

Winterizing Rhyme
   by Wei Young - December 19, 2005

Woke up in the morning with the yearning for speed,
Not Sandra Bullock jumping that bus with Keanny Reeves.

Got a crazy hangover from the night before,
Said eff it, grabbed my helmet and popped the garage door.

Unclipped the tender and took the keys out my pocket,
Woke up Neo my Ducati crotch rocket.

My bike is badass when she's burning the gas,
Mess with us in the twisties, you get a foot in that ass

It was a great day for riding, no need for an electric vest,
Embrace that cold breeze hitting firmly on your chest.

No need to winterize your Italian steed,
'Cause days like yesterday are all they need!
