Title: Red is faster, and I have proof :)
Post by: no on Sep 20, 2010, 12:08:33 am
I came across this today and found it to be rather entertaining thought I would share and finally put an end to the argument of which color is faster (on a side note I suspect black was just too slow to mention in this particular line of research :) )

When the light bends through the prism can we say that the red goes the fastest? Yes, in most cases. In one particular kind of glass, fopr example, the index of refraction (c/v, where c is the speed of light in vacuum and v is the speed of a particular frequency of light in glass) is 1.514 for red light and 1.54 for blue light, so in this case the red light travels at c/1.51, and the blue light travels at c/1.54, so the red light travels 2% faster than the blue light.

Not that we Red Riders needed any kind of proof of course.   8)

You have referenced the physics of prismatic effect of glass( or anyother medium than air) on light.  Now what you said seems to make sense except for the fact that you misinterpreted the data.  The data refers not to the fact that red is faster but that it has a shorter wave length.  While we think of light as traveling in a straight line we forget that it also fans out from its source.  Thus we see light traveling from a source is in a circle or in a restricted instance in the shape of a cone, thing sun and flashlight.  Now think vibration such as piano strings.  Piano strings vibrate when they are struck.  That vibration has a wave length the longer the wave length the lower the tone the shorter the wave length the higher the tone.  This is why the bass notes are on thicker longer strings and the saprano notes on shorter thinner strings.  So in the spectrum red is saprano and violet is bass.  All light travels at approximate 186000 miles per seconds linearly.  But at the same time it is traveling side to side in its wave length.  So to figure total speed you have to multiply by the wave lenght factor.  So reds true speed is 186000 miles per sec times 1.514 for 218604 mps.   Blue is 186000 times 1.54 for 286440.  Black is function of the ultraviolet light which goes off the scale at the upper end and infra red goes off the scale at lower end almost to point of being considered -0 if you can fathom that.  Thus we would have to reason that any other color of bike is faster than red and any other color of bike is slower than black.

You have a blue bike don't you? :) J/K and well put, to be perfectly honest my understanding of light really doesn't extend very far at all, that being said I just happened across this and had to take a jab at all the other fellow Raider riders :)

Actually I have BLACK the very fastest. :D ;D  Actually, I use to be in electrical sales and my speciality was light bulbs and understanding the working and effects of light was part of my required knowledge base.  What I find amazing is that people think a lights brightness is based on the wattage rating.  In any given medium of light bulbs that is partially true.  But candlepower and lumens are more important than wattage, and the color spectrum of the bulb is more important for certain work cituation.  Never use a low pressure sodium bulb around a hospital doctors office, or any medical facility for that fact because it will practically make blood invisible to the naked eye.

However, the reality is that Geebops Silver is probably the fastest.  Unless you all have added the big bore kit.  He's the only one I know of who has.

I have a black raider when the garage light goes out, it's not very fast though. When I open the door and pull it outside it's red and then it is very very fast.


I think I like the red one better

This needs to be settled on the dragstrip with two identical raiders one black one red with identical mods and rider weights.

Your partially right... even "all things being equal"... it's still only those two bikes.  Each bike is different and they're all very close to each other.   It's just a game we all love to play.   ;D

Gee, I get to burst another bubble.  Actually the way they rate heat by color is quite interesting.  Take a piece of 1/2 inch thick carbon steel, now take a torch and start applying heat to center in even circular motions to raise the temperature of the steel evenly so as as to not melt it.  It will start to glow as temperature rises.  The first color to be dectected by the human eye is Yellow, as the temp rises the glow transitions to orange then red, then green then blue and finally white.  Then in the light bulb industry they will rate the light by kelvins and the color of the light will have a 2000 or 3000 or such kelvin rating corresponds to the color of the light that is given off by the glowing steel at that particular kelvin temperature.  In such a rating black is O degree kelvin and therefore the coolest.   What is more interesting in art blue is considered a cool shade and red is considered hot so they will call blue light cool white and  red light is warm white and yellow called hot white, go figure art does not  live up to science.

P. S.  If we forum members ever get a chance to all be in the same place at the same time I will give a test and expect all of you to pass with flying colors.

Ah yes, the old burning house ploy.  The physics of flames is another facinating subject that some pyromanics can not get enough of.  But let me say this you will notice as the flaming gasses cool they turn to black smoke and thus once again we prove that black is coolest.  When it comes to flames the hottest gasses are ones that you cannot see  the coolest part of the flame is yellow, the  hottest visible flame will be blue.  Which by the way needs a material that burns at a temperature higher than wood.  So the devistation you experienced by your house while being both horrific and saddening is still considered by physicists to be a low temperature fire.  I sure hope your recovery from that disaster  will be quick and as painless as possible.

Being in the metal industry for the last 12 years as a welder I have to disagree with this one. When heating steel the first color seen is a dull red (often refered to as cherry red) which goes to a bright red then into orange then yellow then white.

Also wouldn't the hottest flame actually be black, if it is black it is burning so efficiently that it is not radiating energy in the form of light?
Title: Re: Red is faster, and I have proof :)
Post by: SLK on Sep 21, 2010, 12:30:26 am
Interesting dilemma.  I have never tried to heat the metal and see what happens.  I was going by the information in the book I was given by light bulb supplier.  According to the lighting industry they are talking about the color of light given off by a piece of steel that is heated in a dark room, it is not heated to melting or welding temperature but to get a glow off of it.  The steel is actually part of wall the heat is applied from one side and the glow is rated from other side which is the dark room.  Again I never experimented to see what happened just was going by the information from the book on lighting, that was the basis for information used in selling light bulbs for various purposes.  The same book also says that for growing plants we have to have light that  contains green.  If you want the plant to produce fruit it needs yellow light and if want flowers you need red light, all other colors of light are not needed for plant growth, according to the lighting industry.  I have had some experience welding and do know that light appears different in color as it passes through filters and would assume that a welders helmet with is filtered lense would have an effect on light perception.  I do not know if that difference in welding and melting metal would make different color from the test used by the light bulb industry.  Either way red is still cooler not hotter.
Title: Re: Red is faster, and I have proof :)
Post by: SLK on Sep 21, 2010, 12:42:56 am
Maxxheadroom, my faux pas.   I went back and got my book and found that being out of the lighting industry for 5 years caused me to confuse the color order. I was wrong, you were right the correct color order by temperature is red then orange then yellow then green then blue then white. Black is not considered a light color, it is considered the lack of light, the theory being that black does not reflect but rather absorbs.  Supposedly a red pigment absorbs all other colors and reflects the one we see--red.  So if it reflects all colors we see white if it reflects none we see black.  Thanks for the challenge that made me go back to my reference books and refresh my memory, and thereby  prove that red is not the hottest color nor is it the coolest.

Okay I must confess, in the past I have owned some RED Yamahas and some RED Hondas they were fast.  I have even had a green Harley, I have owned blue Yamahas, oh yeah I had a custom painted silver Yamaha and a few others thrown into mix as well.  But then I bought a black bike.  Well you know what they say, Once you try black you never go back. They were right.  Black just does it for me, so now I like my motorcycles like I like my coffee--HOT& BLACK.  You can argue all day about which is faster, but the color makes no difference on speed.  I can say that the most gauking I have ever had has been over my black ones.  I don't care that people even call them Harleys,  and when they say they Well it ain't a harley, I am just so glad it isn't.  I have owned two of the best bikes ever built and on the road.  So the rest of you can fight over the color and who has the fastest and it will continue to be so as long as we each have our own minds and opinions.  I just accept the fact that nothing compares to a RAIDER.

Okay I must confess, in the past I have owned some RED Yamahas and some RED Hondas they were fast.  I have even had a green Harley, I have owned blue Yamahas, oh yeah I had a custom painted silver Yamaha and a few others thrown into mix as well.  But then I bought a black bike.  Well you know what they say, Once you try black you never go back. They were right.  Black just does it for me, so now I like my motorcycles like I like my coffee--HOT& BLACK.  You can argue all day about which is faster, but the color makes no difference on speed.  I can say that the most gauking I have ever had has been over my black ones.  I don't care that people even call them Harleys,  and when they say they Well it ain't a harley, I am just so glad it isn't.  I have owned two of the best bikes ever built and on the road.  So the rest of you can fight over the color and who has the fastest and it will continue to be so as long as we each have our own minds and opinions.  I just accept the fact that nothing compares to a RAIDER.


There you go again.... confusing us with the fact's and spoilin' everything.   :rotfl:

Maybe the most gauking you ever had was over the black ones because they were HD people thinking they were HD's.   ;D

T. is correct everyone around katy seems to think my raider is actually an HD rocker. I personally take that as an insult because the raider is 10000x better in any color then the rocker. heck a rusted out raider would still be better then a brand new rocker. T. you and me are gonna have to have us a friendly drag race and settle this red/black controversy ;D

When I am having a bad day, this thread puts a huge smile on my face...

I think it is so funny that the people here with their HD Rockers are talking smack to Real Raider owners.  Lets get a new fact straight...

Raider begins with and R....Red begins with an R...

coincidence?  I think not.  There is always a reason for things in the world.  Obviously the designers of the Raider needed a secret code to communicate that they made minor alterations to a particular style of their bike.  The "R" factor is just too in your face to be anything but true....

Oh, and I have a great story about the grassy knoll if anyone is interested.

Its all about the Raven.  It says refinement and sleek, sensual performance.  It works its subtle magic on the ladies and onlookers alike.  It whispers, "Hello there, my love.  Run your hands along my jet black, metallic paint.  Thats good, just like that.  Now, straddle me and lets go somewhere more private."

soooo.... Awkward....

Our red Raiders do say look at me look at me... Pulling away from you but thats ok gives you and your Raven some apparently much needed privacy :)

You're correct.  The black ones don't need to say "look at me", they're black so everyone already assumes they're HD's and when they get beaten by the red ones, it only cements in it their minds that they are in fact HD's, so it would be in your best interest to stop racing red one.   ;D

Truly flawed poetry.  If your spewing black exhaust fumes from the back of your bike you're obviously running rich and not putting out enough power to beat a black raider.  Silver may be for coin but it surely isn't for repainting...it because the black bikes sell faster and for more than those feminine red one's.    :D :D :D

We Red Raider's have already graduated waayy past black.  As you know, the Red ones started out black... then, when they're test driven at the factory, the ones that are too fast to remain black... they paint red... which is why (really) all the Red ones have a black undercoat.   :rotfl:

To make a proper assestment of the issue at hand let's look at the word Raider...raid (def: a sudden attack) but if we reverse Raider...REDIAR...it is not Raidkcalb, Raideulb or Raidrevlis

We all rode to dinner tonight and the whole way home I was looking in my rear view to make sure Ray and Kim were still there. It doesn't matter how fast your bike is if you're afraid to speed and keep up with me.  8)  I will admit that he was probably just being safe. RAY is a BETTER rider than me and a lot of us. But I'm still the fastest!  ;D 

Maybe they were taking it slow because they were busy with their new headsets in their helmets. I tried to order a burger and fries but with all 4 of them wearing their new headgear I ended up with onion rings. I hate when they screw up my order!   :rotfl:

Cdnraider,

Are you referring to your bike once it has been hiked up by a tow truck or is that when you are riding up a really steep hill?

See, the red raiders are perfectly balanced.  All the horsepower and torque without the worries of becoming a unicycle.  I guess the black paint throws it off balance?

Nah mine isn't off balance because it hooks up so well on a launch and has so much torque that it will walk 30ft on the back wheel. I know you red raiders are weighed down by all that chrome so its not so easy for you

Don't knock our chrome.  I know you black Raider owners look at it and think it is just there because it is shiny and makes our bikes looks awesome...but..in reality..

Chrome makes are already faster Red bikes even faster.  Run your hands over chrome and you will quickly realize how smooth the surface is.  The "smoothy" texture allows wind to pass over our bikes with a 42.567% gain in efficiency over your ordinary black surfaces...

Its a fact..look it up..

FIND OUT WHICH COLOR IS FASTEST. DON'T SCROLL DOWN YET, DO THE SIMPLE MATH BELOW,

 It's CRAZY how accurate this is! No peeking!


 1) Pick your favorite number between 1-9

 2) Multiply by 3 then

 3) Add 3

 4) Then again Multiply by 3 (I'll wait while you get the calculator....)

 5) You'll get a 2 or 3 digit number....

 6) Add the digits together



 Now Scroll down .............

 With that number, see which is fastest














 1. BLACK

 2. BLUE

 3. GREEN

 4. WHITE

 5. YELLOW

 6. ORANGE

 7. SILVER

 8. PURPLE

 9.  RED

 10. PINK
MATH DOESN’T LIE

Roadkill, you are a true American.

We have been saying Red is faster for over 17 pages in this thread.  No matter how many times we have thrown in perfectly insane logic, people still try to argue with us.  We have talked about the streamlining qualities of chrome, the fact that black is merely a base coat to be covered by drag reducing red, the fact that raven riders throw rocks at little children and the fact red has some flame like graphics in it which obviously adds 10-15 horse power and yet....

we all forgot to add simple math to the argument.  Numbers never lie dammit.  That is a fact that 97.45 percent of all scientist in MENSA would agree with.  Heck, 95 percent of dentists also agree....

So MODS, lets lock this thread so no one can ever argue....

RED IS THE FASTEST...

Boys and girls the fact still remains that I said I would put my black raider against any red one and not one red one has stepped up to the plate. I've got nothing to lose in a 1/4 mile drag race only more pride to gain, so unless all you red raider riders know your gonna get whooped and keep making excuses why not to....then Black is the fastest.

He who gets there 1st rides a black bike and yes we do wait because even if the red was faster, all the old guys ride red one's. It's the midlife crisis and I wanna feel young and cool color. :D  Come get some suckas!  :raider:

No no no.. you guys are missing it all together. First my bike was Black as I rode it faster it turned Blue, faster still and more heat it turned Red, then after hitting the sound barrier, she flashed over to liquid silver. All you guys need to take a high speed run down a lonnngggg straight road.. You'll see, we'll ALL be driving silver Raiders then.  ;D ;D ;D

What is the average age of red raider riders vs age of black raider riders?
I bet we will find that all the "older" folks ride red ones. :D

That's because you immature youngsters can't handle the speed of the red ones. 
When you youngsters grow up... then you can get the fastest red ones... kinda like taking off your training wheels once you've learned how to ride a two wheeler.  :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: 

Black = Training Wheels.    ;D

Now... do your homework!!   ;D

The Red Raiders are for old men lol.
You mean like when you see an old
dude driving a Vette, looking to see
if some sweet young thing is looking
at them.
Lol
I do like the red but I didn't want to look like the old man
driving the Red Vette lol.

Black is and always will be the most badass looking color.
As far as the red Raider being faster, lol it's only the guys
riding the red Raiders that say that.  Last I checked all Raiders
from the factory are all the same.
Lol

Well I hate to throw the curve on age, maturity and intellect, but then I have always been a spoiler. My Raven Raider is owned and ridden by a guy who is 60 years old, spent 7 years getting a higher education, graduting both high school and college with honors, learned 2  foreign languages, teaches classes on language etymology, has been in the lighting industry, and now manages a plumbing supply business.  When I was still young and inexperienced red was my color of choice and is still my favorite color, except for my choice in motorcycles and clothes, then I go black with age has come not only intellect but also experience and wisdom.   I have tried to share that here, some listen and some don't, some have earned an A some an F.  What else can I say?  ???

What the H3LL are you talking about.  I take the color of my bike so seriously I had to punch my kids stuffed animal for almost an hour last night I was so pissed at you so call "Raider owners" who could see beyond the basic (yeah I said it) basic, black.

Dammit, I think I am going to file a complaint...

Dammit, I am writing a letter to congress banning black motorcycles...

Dammit, I am writing the strippers PJ hangs out with during the week in the early afternoon (And yes I am jealous)

Dammit, I am, well, tired now.

Guess I will go admire my "pretty" badd-ass raider sitting in the garage since it is pouring here....

Don't be upset brother you own a Raider lol.
This thread has been around forever and it has always been fun talking smack.
When I was trying to figure out back in June of 08 which color I liked best the red was a close second.
Have you seen Mr. T's sled or Larry's sled, man oh man killer bikes for sure.
For the dark theme I wanted to go with the red just wasn't in the picture.
I always have liked the Raider in red but the black IMO was just a little more badass.
I really think Yamaha did all of the colors right.
The new blue Raider kicks ass as well.

My wife still thinks the silver looks the best.
The one that looks the best is the one sitting in your garage lol.

Now go buy you kid a new stuffed animal will ya.

Interesting turn of events occurred today.  I had the opportunity to do a virtual race.  It turns out that it is not the color of the bike, it is the ability of the rider. I discovered that no matter what color of raider I was on I won.  Mr T lost to  me every time no matter what color he was on.  Course, it may have helped that I programmed him on a tricycle. :D  :D

ANDY G. - The only reason there wasn't any RAVENS at that poker run is because we are all broke from our gas bills. When you get a bike this fast, you'll understand how much fuel it burns tearing up the streets. All the chicks that flock to us RAVENS can hurt our wallets too. We pay them to be nice to all of you guys since you are on Raiders. :D

RED = Midlife Crisis "I'm still cool....right?"
BLUE = Needs Attention "Hey, look at me! Please!"
Silver = Trying To Look Fast "Should I wear my hat backwards?"
BLACK= Sexy, Stealthy, & Mean "Finally you guys got here! What?... I didn't run any red lights! Black is just faster!"

I have a guest room at my house cdnraider09. Come on down and let's kick some azz.
ANDY G. - The only reason there wasn't any RAVENS at that poker run is because we are all broke from our gas bills. When you get a bike this fast, you'll understand how much fuel it burns tearing up the streets. All the chicks that flock to us RAVENS can hurt our wallets too. We pay them to be nice to all of you guys since you are on Raiders. :D
RED = Midlife Crisis "I'm still cool....right?"
BLUE = Needs Attention "Hey, look at me! Please!"
Silver = Trying To Look Fast "Should I wear my hat backwards?"
BLACK= Sexy, Stealthy, & Mean "Finally you guys got here! What?... I didn't run any red lights! Black is just faster!"
 :raider: Notice the only raider smiley is black guys!  :raider:
Ok, I will just come out and say it, buying a Raven is like buying a base model mustang instead of a GT or Shelby (RedS) you always wish you would have bought the GT and make all kinds of excuses as to why you didnt....Blah Blah its all jealousy

Something interesting happened to me this evening, that caused me to fully understand why the guys who ride anything but black are so adamant about being faster.  It is the only thing they have left to crow about.  You see this evening it was very unseasonably warm so I got a chance to take the Raider out for ride, so I made a post office run and then went to a local stop off place to pick up a few items. With in a 2 minute time period three other bikes pulled in a black Roadking, a blue Hayabusa, and a red VTX.  while inside I looked out saw a small crowd gathered around the bikes, well actually gathered around the Raider.  I went out and they were all admiring the beauty of the black raider.  One lady was practically drooling all over it, another was begging for a ride, and a third told her husband that it was very sexy and he should get one.  For a few minutes I thought there was going to be some serious need for marriage counselling for some of those couples.  I got on the bike and left and so did the crowd except for two who stayed to examine the black Roadking.  The blue and red bike got no attention.  So I now know that the black Raider is the one with sex appeal, is suave and debonnaire.  The ladies want to go on it, so the guys who ride red just have to be the fastest in order to compensate.

unfortunately I have to agree with mnewfield on that one I have had hd groupies ask if my raven raider was some kind of HD or the rocker. At that point I stop talking to them and usually leave in a cloud of tire smoke. but that's their own ignorance showing its ugly head. any person with half a brain could distinguish an hd frame from any raider frame (be it red, black, silver, or blue). the yamaha logos on the engine covers are also pretty good give aways.

T-bird why does your raider have red nuts on one side of the bike? some kind of genetic mutant trying to cover up its deformity with flashy red paint?  :D

It never ceases to amaze me that the guys on Red Raiders think that Black is the only color to be seen as Harley because Harleys are black.  I know over 30 Harley owners and many of them have two and several even have three Harleys.  Between them they own close to 50 Harleys.  Amoung them there are 12 Red, 9 Blue, 9 White, 7 Green, 5 Brown, 2 Yellow, and 2 Black and one very ugly orange.  I have had 2 black Raven Yamahas in a Row, one is in my garage and the other now lives in my kid's garage.  I have 7 friends who own black (Raven) Yamahas in the Fairbanks area. There are more than that on this forum. Yamaha was the company that made the midnight special the stand out black (Raven) so popular.  If anything Other companys have copied Yamaha when they make a bike black and when you see a black Harley they are trying to immitate being a Yamaha.  If anything I would have to say that the most popular color for Harley is RED, and a Red Yamaha is trying to be a Harley, and as far as red goes I see more Red Hondas that I do Harleys, so maybe the red Raiders are trying to be Hondas instead of Harleys.  So you red owners need to find another burn cause the old Harley wannabe just doesn't cut it especially coming from you Honda wannabes. :D :D :D

Ouch, I think I resemble that Honda remark. Oh wait I'm a "isabe". And how in the world did I wind up with so many red toys? A few decades back I wouldn't have wanted a red anything. Wow, thinking back my last HD bagger was red also. Crap, the Superglide was too until I painted it silver and blue. Oh well, I complete the Christmas color theme with a green Wing.  ;D

I agree, I see more red harleys by far on the road than black.  Red seems like the default color of harley birth in MN and when I lived in AZ and road harleys.

Also if we're talking about bikes copying a color scheme red might be a honda or indian but black wouldn't be a harley...it be a Vincent.

Well see now, confession is good for the soul.  Since confession is the way this thread has turned for just a few comments, I will also confess, that I have owned two red Yamaha in the past.  The last two bikes I was torn between getting it in Red or Black.  The wife said she was tired of red and cast the deciding vote for black.  We are considering what our next one may be, it could be black or red depending on circumstance, but right now it is leaning toward another black, but red is still in the running.  Either way I will have the fastest, cause I have a hard time leaving anything stock, I have to take something great and make it greater, it is in my genes, and I have a Tim Allen complex.

My experience with Harley owners is that most of them love their rides.  They have a lot of loyality to the brand, yet I also have many friends who do not have an attitude of 'Harley is the only bike to ride'.  I have  a few Harley riding friends who also have a Honda, or a Kawasaki, or a Suzuki, or a Yamaha parked in their garage as well, and when they want real speed they hop on the Jap bike.  One of my Harley owning buddies is always dragging someone over to my bike and bragging about how great it is, in looks, in quality, in speed, in hp and torque.  What is funny is the guys he drags over will ask him how come he doesn't own one.  Get this, he says cause I can ownly afford one and I am stuck on the Harley thing, but if I could afford to have two that would be my second one.

Oh, I forgot to add, many of us here have at one time or another owned a Harley.  We may have had the attitude or we may not have had it.  I have had Harleys in the past, never had the attitude got rid of Harley to go with something that had more guts.  I have to admit that I still drool over some Harleys, and if I had the money to throw at it would put one in the garage just for the pretty paint job, and take it out every once in a well to have other Harley owners drool over it.  In the mean time I just let them drool all over, or get angry about how much greater my ride is than theirs.

On the way home from church, the wife and I saw a beautiful custom bike today. It was gorgeous a Harley complete done over from ground up.  After looking at it I realized why I liked it so much,  IT LOOKED LIKE A RED RAIDER WITH THE TRIBAL MAKINGS,  except instead of tribal marking it was flames and a lot of them in black.  So the Raider profile with a basic red paint job and lots of gorgeous black flames.  Then I realized the only thing that would have made it look better, well 2 acutally was to put a Raider engine in it and forget the red with black flames and make it black with red and yellow flames.  Thus I have changed my mind and think the fastest Raider will be one that is Black with Red and Yellow flames.

Truth be known... you just couldn't handle the speed of the red ones, so you decided that, if you're going to buy a slower bike, it might as well be black so you could "blend in" with the HD crowd.

I scratched a red raider and its base coat was pink. I scratched a blue one and it started crying. I scratched a silver one at the dealership and nothing happened! I ask the salesmen what's up and he said that the silver was so slow they didn't think they'd sell any so they didn't paint them. Its just a clear coat over cheap scrap metal with a sticker on the tank.  :raider:

Well 1st off "start" is spelled with "t" in it. You must ride a RED raider. That's known as the caution color aka special bus or short bus bike.  :rotfl:  Only us sofistamacated riders get to own BLACK ones. Doesn't matter what color I paint it because I'll be going so fast you'll only see the glare of chrome pass by like a shooting star.  :raider:

  Someone once told me... Yamaha made the red raider first and then blue. Seems they were trying to decide what color to make next and as someone was riding a red raider off the assembly line they hit the throttle a little too hard and the rear tire lost traction causing hot rubber to fly behind it. Well it seems some of this rubber got stuck to a primered bike and thus the ravens were born... behind a red one.

In reality… Yamaha first paints the Raider black then, as stated before, they run it on the test track at the factory.  If it’s too fast to be black, they paint over it in Red.  That is the real reason the Red ones have a black undercoat.   ;D ;D ;D

sandpaper you say....

Maybe by roughing up the tanks a bit we can create some kind of wind vortex that will not only improve gas efficiency, but could add betwee en 20 and 142 horsepower.  Obviously you would need a Red Raider to see these kinds of gains....

Now to head to Home Depot to test out my theory.

No they would not lie, but the only information I find is that red is such a weak color it needs a base coat to make it show up.  I did not find any information stating the color of the base coat.  But I can tell you that I use to work for Huffy bicycle corporation.  I was involved in the production control, testing, and quality control of the color finishing department, otherwise known as Painting department.  What most people do not know is that automotive, motorcycle, and marine paint finished are first tested in the bicycle industry.  Go down to a bicycle shop and check out the present colors.  What you see there will be found on cars, boats and motorcycles in about 3 years.  Originally finishes known as candy apple started out with a primer coat of white, then a base color coat of silver and the finish color coat of your choice.  Mica or Metal flake would start out with a gray or dull red primer, later kahki green was added.  Then a primary base coat of white for red, the other colors did not need a base coat, then the finish coat with metal flake, and if a mica was wanted the color coat was plain, and mica was added to the clear coat.  Experiments were tried with using black as base coat for red but the black was so strong that red would show up over black.  For those  red and black finishes if red was the base coat the color layers would be primer of choice, white, red, the black accent color.  If black was the base color then the color layer would be primer of choice, black, white in the masked out area to be red, then the finish accent color of red.   

I did not see a color note for the red base coat on color right, but my guess is it will be white.  And the Challenge still stands.  I am positive you will find white under the red.

Thank you for proving out point SLK.  Since Black absorbs all light that means it is heavier than red since our bikes reflect it.  That reflections causes light waves to bounce off of our bikes adding to the vortex flux.  This "flux" means that any air that comes in contact with our bikes is instantly accelerated adding to the speed coefficients that are possible.

I mean really, any quantum physics wannabe knows that.
Title: Re: Red is faster, and I have proof :)
Post by: SLK on Oct 09, 2010, 05:54:37 pm
Well you may be getting a grasp of the facts but still lack the ability to properly translate.  The ability to absorb light allows for energy storage and then release in the form of heat.  the more colors you absorb you the more energy you can absorb and store.  Black absorbs all colors of light and red absorbs all but red.  White reflects all colors of light absorbing none.  By your conjecture white would be fast and totally unable to be caught or passed by another color.  Black would be slowest.  However check out those who live in dessert climates.  They wear white to reflect all light and heat to stay cool.  They avoid dark colors especially black.  Heat is the result of molecules vibrating and moving quickly bumping into each other.  Cold is the lack of heat and the lack of the movement and speed. So as colors get darker and absorb light they collect the energy and heat and the molecules move faster.  So black is the hottest and the fastest.  Again you lose!

How Dare You Change My Words and Misquote,  Oh yeah you ride red.  They also grow strawberries and raspberries both red in Alaska and we have a much a colder climate, guess what our Alaskan strawberries and raspberries are the largest in the world, the same is true with cabbage we grow the largest in the world the only problem is they lack flavor,very filling but lacking in flavor.  So we bring in the small dessert grown ones so we can have some flavor, not very filling because they are so small but tasty.  I find the red to be tasty but not filling. :D

You know I haven't rode my bike in a while maybe since its nice tonight I'll take it out and whoop the crap out of some of the local red raiders just for kicks.

You better take a big dose of sleeping pills... cause you're only going to beat them in your dreams.    :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:
Wow, I just realized that all of you guys who ride red and talk such smack  must not have any problem with constipation, and you are very good ventriloquists, cause you do such a good job of talking out of your ....... Well I guess I don't really have to say it. ;D ;D ;D

The way I look at it is Red is for people over compensating for "something" :D Kind of like one of those dickheads in the Ferrari's that have to have that flashy bright red car because everyone knows he couldn't get some tail unless he was drawing so much attention to himself.  Black is classy, sleek, and plain looks good on anything....and don't even get me started about how much faster it is than anything else.

Now see... as the proud owner of a red one, that though never crossed my mind. It's more of the "if you got it flaunt it" attitude.  That fact that a Raven owner did think of it... speaks volumes.... in a rather "small" way.     :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

I only speak the truth from my powers of observation.  I don't need to over compensate because I have the fastest already.  Being I already have the quicker color there is no shame in any "inadequacies" I may have :D

More like black is sold up north because having to ride in the cold at slow speed (e.g. which is what Red is only capable of) is more uncomfortable.  If you get a Raven and you decide to ride in the winter it's okay because everything is only minutes away :D

Nope my Raven raider uses a special blend of oil designed by Chuck Norris and the sweat of the devil himself.  Nothing can break it down.  It's available only to a select few bit of Raven riders and would make a red raider catastrophically explode!

Man this thread takes strange turns.

Chuck Norris and the Devil are now involved.  Hard to argue with our point of view since most people think of the devil as RED and Chuck Norris stared in two movies called HELLBOUND and and Firewalker (Both dealing with red fire).  And since a Raven Raider rider brought them up as being fast and kick ass and filling his Raven Raider with fury, then it goes to show it takes a lot of Red to make a Raven Raider fast...hmmmm...

Boy, I can not believe that these guys on red are so slow mentally, how  many times we have explained and shown the fact that it is red that comes closer to being Harleyized than black.  Black harleys are copying Yamaha, red Yamahas are copying Harley. Your argument was left in the dust a long time ago, and yet you are still there, so it appears your red bikes are to slow to get out of even the settled dust.  GEEZZ guys if you can not catch that fact how in the world do you expect to catch a black raider.  I am really beginning to feel for sorry for you slow guys, and by slow I am not talking bikes  again I am talking mentally. ;D ;D ;D

Yeah, but like your Raven Raider, it is a false insecure sense of power.  Once the caffeine wears off, you are back to your normal slow lethargic self.

When a Fire (red) is done with its victim, it leaves nothing but Black ash....you know, the stuff that is considered waste...death...unwanted...leavens...


And this whole argument about Red being more like a Harley is just nuts.  Hell, most of the Harley's I see lately are white or purple anyways..It just the old farts who drive the black Harley's.

At both the yamaha dealerships in my area the black sell out first, and at the end of the season they have nothing but red to sell.  Where I live you would think red would be the popular color.  But I guess most riders know which color is faster.

I just realized something else.  All those guys on red seem to be angry and upset at us for being faster, and red is the color of anger.   Makes you wonder if they turn green when they see us go by.  ;D ;D ;D

I was going to say SLK....What a way to give up...

Some have said us Red Raider riders get red with anger when we see a Raven raider...you would be correct.  We cannot help getting so pissed at you for buying a great bike without putting the proper speed inducing color on it.  I mean seriously, you left the base coat on?  What are you trying to prove?  Is it a masochistic thing?  Have you seen a red raider recently?  I mean hell, we had to leave parts of it black to ensure that the two wheels stayed on the ground at full speed.  If it was all red, it would fly away....

FASTER

You're absolutely correct.  We don't buy the Red ones because they're faster... they just are.  You're also correct about the black ones don't care about flash... and it just so happens they don't care about speed either.  :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

Its amazing that this thread is still going.  What is it, does the red paint have an additive that makes it dry slower?  I mean, the only thing I can say is after they took the rejected black bikes (you know, like the factory defects) and painted over them red, the added paint fumes are messing with the mental faculties of the riders.

Yeah, Pink isn't my color. If Harley made a bike that was this fast, reliable, and looked this good... I would ride it. I think it's funny that the best cut down you guys have is that we are Harley look-a-likes. I guess I shouldn't expect to much from a bunch of guys on PINK bikes. I'll be nice so I don't make you cry. After all we know you're suffering from a midlife crisis with that color. I knew you needed attention, but wow. Even my 6 year old daughter doesn't try that hard.

YOU ARE RIGHT THE SCALES TELL US WHO IS THE FATEST  OOPS THAT IS MISPELLED IT SHOULD BE FATTEST.  HOWEVER I DO HEAR THAT RED RIDERS HAVE THE LARGEST HELMETS OUT THERE.  NOW IF A BLACK HAS THE MOST HP TORQUE AND WITH AN EXPERIENCED RIDER WHO KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING HE WILL WIN EVERYTIME.  HOWEVER IF HE HAS A DRIVER LIKE OH LETS SAY T, IT WILL PULL IN DEAD LAST EVERYTIME. FROM WHAT I HEAR T TALKS BIG BUT HIS POOR OLD RED ONLY STANDS A CHANCE WHEN SOMEONE LIKE WELL LETS SAY ME IS ON IT.   OH YEAH I AM YELLING SO ALL YOU GUYS DOWN SOUTH CAN HEAR ME THROUGH ALL THE SNOW FALLING HERE.

I decided to keep my base coat black on my paint job because I want to stay true to my raven roots. Doesn't matter what color goes on top because it will probably just run off when I ride anyway since black is so fast. I have to give props to you Dawn for not embarrassing the guys in public when they were doing the dyno runs. You're so nice. Silver has got to be the 2nd fastest color. Who cares which one's faster between blue and red because if you're not 1st... your last. SHAKE AND BAKE!

Very true.  Once its moving it becomes easier to just judge the world's rotational speed relative to the Raven Raider than try and peg the Raven Rader's landspeed.

Hey guys I happened to come across an interesting document.

Meeting of Red Raider Riders Anonymous.

Sept. 19, 2010.  8:15 PM

Meeting called to order by Mr T  15 minutes late he left home 15 minutes earlier but was still to slow to get here on time.

Comment by EraserX33, "Good Grief you would think T could get here a little quicker, we are meeting in his garage."

Roll Call:  skipped over, this is an anonymous club after all.

Minutes of last meeting not read, they got lost when stolen by a Harley Rider which we could not catch.

Treasures Report not given it was with the minutes of the last meeting.

Old Business:  Same old same old my Raider is running slow, how can I make it faster discussion.

New business:  Discussion was started by Mr T with the statement, "Lets start a stir on the forum with the faster Raven Rider, we will say we have the faster bikes maybe then we will feel better". 

Motion to do so made by Maxxheadroom.  Seconded by Red Star Raider.  Motion passed by unanimous vote.

Motion made to leave records at Club house (Mr T) garage made by mnewfield in hopes of avoiding the last fiasco.  Seconded by jkskeet.  Motion passed with a unanimous vote.

Motion made by RuneRaider to close official and have a sob fest over how slow the bikes are until they can start the forum squabble.  Seconded by TXbroker.  Motion Passed unanimously. 

Meeting adjorned 8:25 PM

Sob Fest ended 10:00 PM

I didn't realize that Raven owners are not only slow in thought but also color blind.   

Ohhhh... that's why they own Ravens, slow in thought = slower bikes.  Black = sorry, I think like a HD owner and all I see is black. 

Ok... go get your GF, or wife and maybe she can help you with the following:

Pink
Red

Actually color blindness is a genetic condition caused by an irregularity of the gene for sight on the X Chromosome.  Very Seldom does it affect the ability to detect reds mostly it causes one to see green as red and purple as green or red.  In even more rare cases one sees brown as blue.  So if anything is wrong it will not be in telling red from pink.
My father was color blind and I have nephew and 2 friends who are color blind, all see red and. Pink just fine most have trouble with green and blue, my father could not see brown.  The only color blindness I have is the inability for red to keep up with me until I slow down.

There is a place for girls on bikes including and especially so on Raiders but so far they have all been on red, or blue or silver or white custom paint.  So far I have never a girl on black, black is just a manly color. I AM MAN HEAR ME ROAR!!!          It just hit me guys on any color but black are just being sensitive and are getting in touch with their feminine side, and that is why they are giving us guys on black the same kind of grief I get from my wife.  So you guys on red just need to man up.  :D :D

Good God man...This thread has turned into Raven Raider spam....

time to unsubscribe as I am getting spammed with updates regarding this thread and all I see are two Raven riders chatting it up about inane topics.  I mean seriously, your bikes are slow enough to simply ride down the sidewalk together and talk.  Don't worry, I will ask my son to simply go around you on his Big Wheel so you don't have to put both feet on the ground.

And man I love the pink jokes.  I mean seriously, are you really that confused?  Mr. T pointed out the difference and even SLK stated there was no medical condition that would cause you to confuse the two colors.  Therefore it would seem to any logical person that the reason you see our bikes as pink is because riding the Raven Raiders has made you intelligence factor significantly fall?  Not trying to be offensive (well maybe a little), but I bet we could compile some evidence that states that the Raven Raiders are so slow that it is causing your I.Q. points to diminish at an alarming rate or at least your vision.  And no, I don't want to hear that Raven Raiders are sooooo fast and that must be the reason for your piss poor eye sight.  We all know the truth :)

Oh, wow, gee, I apologize to all the red raider riders who think my responses are spam.  I simply see a statement that is so contrary to science and the knowledge we as mankind have accumulated and I feel the need the set things straight.  I use information from the various science text books I used in college, from medical journals and from many various encyclopedias.  If that insults you red necks I do apologize. Now to set something else straight before you get confused  apology and its verb form apologize have several meanings.  One is to be sorry for something that was done.  The other means to offer up a defense using logic, knowledge, and facts that are evident and at hand, this is the apology I offer.  As a former president once stated "If you can't take the heat, then get out of the kitchen."  In the mean time I hope you stay around to read my next response to some stupid erroneous statement offered by either a red rider or a raven rider.  You see I could through away a few hundred IQ points and still be a genius.  SLK a legend in my own mind. :D :D :D   So I guess you red riders have just given me one more opportunity to prove you wrong. :D :D :D  Oh yeah Black is still faster than red.

All righty then, I have a pic to solve all this bickering once and for all!! A buddy of mine dropped off his bike at my shop this evening and asked what I could do for it? I just simply replied, I don't know--we'll see. This will solve the delima about if black raiders look like harleys and without even starting my bike it is clear that red is faster. I just wished I had a buddy with a black raider for the comparison--scratch that last comment--I don't have time to wait around wondering if he is going to show up in time for the photo shoot..  :umno:   :rotfl:


Amazing!!!! Absolutely Amazing!!!!  I never thought you would do that, and now I am so embarassed to have to admit that that black Harley looked even hotter than your red raider, how could you put such shame on the raider community, if you were going to do a comparison you should have chosen an ugly Harley now none of us will ever be able to show our faces in public again, that is except for those of us who ride black. :D :D :D

j/k but if you decide to paint your bike, make sure you know what you want to do on it because it's been a week today and he's just starting my airbrushing this weekend because I was so picky and fickle with my decisions. I need a bike that changes colors and styles to be completely happy.  :D

Maybe red when I'm crusing and black when I'm in a hurry. :rotfl:

PJ, I hear ya brother. I've been trying to decide what I wanted to do with mine. It is going to be red, but trying to decide on stripes or graphics and or pin striping is enough to make you want to leave it alone. :witsend: I did order a bunch of different color metal flake today. I'm going to do some test panels to help with the decision.

Metal flake is something I've toyed with as well...  :shrug:

I decided to go with some crazy bio mechanical artwork pieces on the sides of tank and all other parts and leave it black. What looks really sick (and I almost went with) is to take it down to smooth bare metal, put wavy scuff mark lines on it, and then paint it transparent with a candy paint. He showed me a piece of metal he did as wall art and it was so awesome! That will most likely be my next paint job in a year or two. I like to paint my bikes a lot because you go over everything and clean it up while it's apart and you're waiting and it makes it brand new again. Since I'm on this thread rambling.... BLACK IS FASTEST!  ;D

Post by: Mr. T on Oct 22, 2010, 09:09:17 pm
Well, RED is faster!!! That sounds pretty sick PJ. Here's what I ordered apple red, rose red, fire red, silver, orange copper, and black flake. 4oz. jars. They are really small flakes and are supposed to lay flat enough not to have to sand and clear a whole bunch of times. We'll see. Oh yeah, the black flake is not for my bike-- it is for the harley in my last pic. I wouldn't put that stuff on my bike. Unless I blend a couple colors of the red then I might have to put in some black to tone down the power a bit. :rotfl:

What? Is that some new version of the 2 Step dance  that requires lots and lots of training and practice, cause if it is I will never get it, I could never get the 2 Step, or the twist, or the pony, or oh well I just can't dance.  But I know what I like and I admit I like Red but I like Black Better.  And as far which is faster we all know color has nothing to do with it.  It is the mods and the rider that make the bike.  So until I meet someone with more mods and who is a better rider than me, my black is still the fastest.  And just like my Vstar only a fool will challenge it without first checking out to make sure he has much more into it than I have in the Vstar.  My son-in-law keeps wanting to put the 2 against each other, but I won't do it, not until I have finished the BAK and had another dyno tune, Cause that Vstar will keep up with a factory Raider.

Sounds like an interesting selections of colors, I have worked with all of them.  Just a hint for some interesting looks that were being worked on when I use to work Huffy in the paint department.  We were experimenting with a new application of red, before a strike happened and shut the whole thing down.  A neutral beige primer coat, topped with a flat silver.  Then a  matador red coat which was followed by a red tinted pearl coat, and finished off with clear coat that had red mica.  That was just too many coats and they were trying to develop a process that would cut it into 2 by coming up with a blend of colors hoping to use the primer and silver in one wet coat topped by the red then baked.  Followed by a blend of red pearl with red mica.  We never made it before the shut down, but the layered test plates were gorgous.  Good luck on your final choice.  Oh black is still faster.

Post by: PJ on Oct 23, 2010, 04:44:09 pm
Depending what green you were thinking of adding, I really think an cool old school cammo paint job would be awesome because you don't see that much anymore, but do it in hot colors like raven black, kawasaki green, a cool yellow and either and orange or brown.

Since we're on this thread.... BLACK = FASTEST!
Title: Re: Red is faster, and I have proof :)
Post by: Kevin Dixon on Oct 23, 2010, 09:15:16 pm
Or how about some old school meets new school.  Use dark green flake and do some hot rod flames and then line it out with silver leaf.  Then add some lime pin striping.

I think flames are starting to fade out again. They've been done over and over and now stock models of bikes come with them. Just my honest opinion. To each their own ya know. Shawn (My guitarist/painter) did his old Warrior black with like a kawasaki style green flames and outlined the flames with white. It was a nice a$$ paint job, if you like flames. Here's a pic of before and after paint. Oh and.... THE RAVEN RULES!

Oh and I made the piece on the side of his engine and we out his RPM gauge in it. It was sick!

THE RAVEN STILL RULES!  :D
Title: Re: Red is faster, and I have proof :)
Post by: Kevin Dixon on Oct 23, 2010, 09:55:56 pm
Well the flames isn't what is important.  It's the old school flake paint, silver leaf, and pinstriping that's what I was emphasizing.  I was just using flames as a reference or possible design scheme.

Black is the best.

My vstar has a horse theme with lots of engraving that involved horses galloping, a six up team pulling a stage couch and horse heads with the neck outstretched with flared nostrils and flowing mane that turns into flames, I was going to pearl coat it and ghost in either blue or green galloping horses that turned into flames, but since the bike now resides in my kids garage I can only hint at doing it, but he likes the plain black cause black is fastest.

It certainly seems to give the Raven riders diarrhea of the mouth… SOS.       :rotfl:

Good thing you don't own a Red Raider... you'd end up doing something that... well... smells a little different... and that which seem to spew from your mouth, would be coming out the other end.  :rotfl:

You can’t hold back a bulldozer either but, I’d never call that fast although it would give you’re Ravens a run for your money.    :D

Since my bike is in parts and not moving right now, I have to admit that the slowest Raider around right now is BLACK. It hurts to admit this, but I know once it's back together and I hit the streets it'll be the fastest out there. I'm going to have it Dyno'd at my buddy's shop to see just how fast it is.

Phil and Deja came by my house tonight and Phil (Red) was looking at my bike that is bodyless right now. Next thing I know he's pulling the damn gas line out of the bike. I said what are you doing man and he said oh, you don't need that line! I was like yes I do! He thought it was one of the lines you remove when doing your big air kit (that I already removed) he claims.  :D  Another RED trying to slow down the BLACK.  :D I've heard of hiding people's keys or blocking them in when you park, but ripping out my gas line!

Wow we now have the Red Riders confession, they cant stand up to a black raven they fall to pieces I found this little song that says it all (think Patsy Cline)

I fall to pieces each time I see you again. I fall to pieces, why wasn't I a Raven?
I have tried to act like we never raced. I have tried to forget, pretend we never met.
And I have tried and tried but haven't yet. You race by and I fall to pieces.
I fall to pieces each time someone mentions black. I fall to pieces time only adds to my lack.
You tell me to find someone else that's slow, Some who can't pass me the way you use to do,
But each time I go out with someone new, You race by and I fall to pieces.

from past debate the blue and silvers already know their place, they are faster than red and slower than black.  Now if you red guys would just open up you eyes and see the light you would then know and understand and be at one with you position in life, at the bottom of the totem pole, in the basement of the out house, still standing on the dock looking at your departed ship, at the station looking at the dissappearing caboose, sitting in the foyer while everyone else is in the dining room, well if you don't have the picture now you are to slow and never will.  Black rules, red drools. :D ;D :raider:

from past debate the blue and silvers already know their place, they are faster than red and slower than black.  Now if you red guys would just open up you eyes and see the light you would then know and understand and be at one with you position in life, at the bottom of the totem pole, in the basement of the out house, still standing on the dock looking at your departed ship, at the station looking at the disappearing caboose, sitting in the foyer while everyone else is in the dining room, well if you don't have the picture now you are to slow and never will.  Black rules, red drools. :D ;D :raider:
[/quote]

Basement of the outhouse?  WOW...where the hell do you live?  I know that an outhouse is a building over a hole, but never realized it could have a basement.   :D  And..I would be willing to bet that whatever was in the "basement" of your outhouse would be black.  If it is red, please go to the hospital because I would think you would need emergency surgery.

Bottom of the totem pole?  Again, I believe what you are saying is that the Red Raiders are so powerful we are able to hold the rest of you up because without us you would fall.  I really appreciate this compliment because you are correct.  If it wasn't for the Red Raiders incredible HP and track numbers, the Raider in general would be no where.

I would still like to see the Silver and Blue Raiders speak up.  I know Deja must love the Red Raiders as she has taken her awesome silver and added a ton of red.  Obviously it is to improve her performance numbers.

 ;D ;D

I wish this tread would just go away, and we all know black is faster anyways. once you go black you can't hold it back.

Bad variation on the same old drab cliché. 

So, I guess once you go black you what? 
...Pee your pants?   ;D

It certainly seems to give the Raven riders diarrhea of the mouth… SOS.       :rotfl:

Good thing you don't own a Red Raider... you'd end up doing something that... well... smells a little different... and that which seem to spew from your mouth, would be coming out the other end.  :rotfl:

You can’t hold back a bulldozer either but, I’d never call that fast although it would give you’re Ravens a run for your money.    :D

Are you speeking from personal experience because you ride a red bull dozer? :rotfl: :rotfl:

Actually... yes I also have a red bulldozer.  And I can beat a Raven in a 1/4 mile 40% of the time.   :rotfl:

I can't comment back on if black raiders look like Harleys or not. I never really get to look at a Harley because I'm always going so much faster than them that they all look the same, but I'll take your word for it guys because we know your bikes are about the same speed as a Harley so you probably get a real good look and have plenty of time to compare the similarities. Next time I'll slow down for you guys so I can see what you're talking about.

Boy oh boy you better hope my wife never sees this comment.  When we went looking for a new bike I went first checked them out and was given first right to pick out three and she would make the final decision.  In the three that I picked out there were two red ones 1 non raider red, 1 red raider and 1 black raider.  I was leaning more toward the black but the final say would be hers.  She said black and nothing else, she also had selected my black Vstar.  Both are great bikes.  If she finds out you are ridiculing her choice she may well to put it politely emasculate you, and make sure your retirement goes bye bye, she can do it and I would never make her mad without first making provisions for my personal protection.  And she will tell you right to your face that black is faster and that you better back off Bub or I will have your...........!   Shucks I might even hand her the knife.    Now back to topic

Actually anymore I don't mind all that much when someone thinks I am on a Harley.  The only thing wrong with Harley is that they are overpriced and underpowered, but they sure do make some beautiful rides.  Lets face it this engine, oil storage design, transmission, and final drive is a knock off of the Harley (which was a knock off of the Indian design) but just so much better.  Shoot even the exhuast when opened up so it can be heard is remeniscient of the Harley.  So now when someone asks me which Harley model I have I tell them it is the Harley Slayer.  If the person is on a Harley they know I am not on a Harley and most of them turn green with envy ;D or red with rage >:( when they realize they could have had a better bike at cheaper price.  So I have decided to stop argueing over the look like a Harley and take the red raiders back handed slap and remember there slaps are like being brushed with a feather and they are actually complimenting me, like most of the ignorant Harley biker wanna bes. ;) O8O :raider:  :chopper:  take note that the cool smiley Icons that display power and coolnes are black, or look like a Captain America Harley. also take note that the red icons are a stetched Harley chopper :raked:  and rice rocket sport bikes  :wheelie: :peace:  which do not display the coolness of the Raider.

So, when it comes to Raiders, putting all nonsense aside and going by the smiley icons available on this Raider forum the best is black. :D ;D

At the time I may have been feeling sickly, which would have slowed me down, but the funny thing is I was turning red from fever and was red when I was slow, but now I am well and fast again. Strange thing though I am neither red nor black but I do have some Native American, and  African American ancestry.  I may have to rethink this whole red and black thing.  Neither color of bike is faster it is the rider that counts.  Soooo that means my Raven is fastest because I am riding it and all you other guys are slower than me cause you ain't ME. :D

As far as the "coolness" factor, I know your GF and, she has confirmed the adage of "there's an exception to every rule".   ;D

Even nature proves that red is faster.  When things are dead and decaying, they turn black... when they're at there peak, ripe and at their best, they're red.

My 7 year old daughter was with me when I stopped by Dawn & Phil's house. Both of their bikes were parked out front and I told my daughter to look at them so she could see how the same bike can look so different. Wouldn't you know it... Phil asked my daughter which of the 3 bikes she likes the best and she pointed right his bike. Then Stacey (my wife) said yeah the red ones do look great with all the chrome.

:rotfl: She'll be served papers this week and my kids headed off to a youth ranch! :rotfl: 


My daughter is so sweet. When we got back in the car I asked her why she didn't choose my bike and she said Daddy your bike used to be my favorite, but now it's broken. :D

How grand that would be if we could serve the red riders papers or send them to youth ranch.  Unfortunately they would probably go on the papers, or burn down the ranch. :D  At least you know that once the bike is back together it will probably be her favorite again. ;)

Um, I think not, tell that to the boysenberry, the blackberry, the dewberry, the black cherry, the black raspberry, the mullberry, the grape, the plum, the elderberry, the eggplant, the blueberry, or to flax, or anise, the american black walnut, or olives just to name a few more than a few.  Again, I prove you wrong, when will you ever learn?  So therefore since you were using that to prove red is faster than black we can therefore conclude that red is not faster.  So once again using your own premise we see that red is not faster, and therefore black is.  I love this thread.  Keep throwing at me T and I will keep knocking them out of the park. :D

[/quote]

Talk about contradiction, you said it there T.  Good grief who in the world came up with that stupid, idiotic, oxymoronic phrase   "same difference"  when referring to two or more things as being the same.  If something is alike it is the same, if it is different it is not the same, so it can not be the same difference.  Now if you want to talk mathmatics you  can get the same difference when two equations involving subtraction come up with the same answer.  Such as  5-2=6-3.  5-2 has a difference of 3 and 6-3 has a difference of 3 so the difference between 5-2 and 6-3 is the same. A Honda Accord and Nissan Sentra are both made in the Japan but they are not the same difference, they are the same in that they are both cars and both made in Japan but they are totally different cars.  A Harley and a Black Raider and a Red Raider are all motorcycle but they are not the same difference the Harley is more expensive, most underpowered and the slowest.  The Black and Red Raiders are both priced right have more power and Black is the faster.  No same different just different.  There you went and made me do it again. Another home run out of the park from you slow pitch. :D :D :D

Harleys... Black Raiders... same difference.    ;D

Talk about contradiction, you said it there T.  Good grief who in the world came up with that stupid, idiotic, oxymoronic phrase   "same difference"  when referring to two or more things as being the same.  If something is alike it is the same, if it is different it is not the same, so it can not be the same difference.  Now if you want to talk mathmatics you  can get the same difference when two equations involving subtraction come up with the same answer.  Such as  5-2=6-3.  5-2 has a difference of 3 and 6-3 has a difference of 3 so the difference between 5-2 and 6-3 is the same. A Honda Accord and Nissan Sentra are both made in the Japan but they are not the same difference, they are the same in that they are both cars and both made in Japan but they are totally different cars.  A Harley and a Black Raider and a Red Raider are all motorcycle but they are not the same difference the Harley is more expensive, most underpowered and the slowest.  The Black and Red Raiders are both priced right have more power and Black is the faster.  No same different just different.  There you went and made me do it again. Another home run out of the park from you slow pitch. :D :D :D

Dude... THIS ENTIRE THREAD IS NOTHING BUT HYPERBOLE...    ;D

The slow pitches are necessary so that the Raven owners can keep up.... you see, it's not only their bikes that are slower...

Well of course it is hyperbole which by the way comes from the Greek word huperbolus which mean to over throw as in when an out fielder is throwing the ball to the second baseman and it goes over his head.  So it means wea re talking way above our level of experience.

If he is Santa Claus then he truly does prove that black is faster.  Think of it this way.  In one night he can circumnavigate the globe delivering toys to every single house and still have time to enjoy milk and cookies.  If he was on a red raider I have a feeling there would be a lot of disappointed children. :D

Where have you been?  A lot of my posts mention where I live, even my avatar shows snow in the back ground, and my page shows where I live.  Although I thought I did a pretty good job of hiding my identity one of the other guys figured it out q while back. Even though my sleigh is red I use 9 black and white reindeer including Rudolph to pull my sleigh.  You should by now that nothing gets past SLK (Santa L. Klaus).

Actually Rudolph's red nose comes from imbibing to much arctic low bush cranberry hooch, it is the much as W. C. Fields nose from his love for the whiskey.  We keep him away from the stuff as much possible but let him into the storage locker the 23rd of December so we can dry him out on the 24th and still have a glowing nose for the midnight journey.

Good Morning Everyone..

Just awoke and am enjoying a nice cup of coffee and wanted to remind everyone that RED IS FASTER...

Now back to your regularly scheduled argument.
Title: Re: Red is faster, and I have proof :)
Post by: doctor who on Oct 31, 2010, 01:21:51 pm
No doubt that colors other than black and red were bought solely for their looks.  They have no dogs in this fight.   As a Doctor, I can tell you that red is faster.  The reason is related to the Op's original hypothesis.  The red shift in light means that the light is moving away from you.  Any other Raider color that has raced a red one has observed this phenomenon.  The greater the red shift, the greater the rate of increase of their distance from the observing object. 

The debate is settled.

Doc
Title: Re: Red is faster, and I have proof :)
Post by: SLK on Oct 31, 2010, 11:22:39 pm
Doctor Who?  I don't recognize you screen name or signature, so first let me say welcome to the forum and then welcome to this discussion.  Since Mr T has been absent from here for a couple of days it is good to see one who is really thinking and using scientific arguments step up to the pitchers mound and offer something other than the child like drivel that seems to be present from both sides of this argument ie red is faster, no black is, no red is, no black is, and so on.  Now, you are referencing the Doppler effect on of light.  It has nothing to do with how fast an object is moving, rather it deals with the orientation of two objects whether they are coming closer together or moving apart.  Light color is determined by its frequency and it is perceived by the human eye in it's ability to receive the electro-magnetic impulse and transform it to a nerve signal over the optic nerve to the brain.  In the average human eye that includes colors from a dark magenta to a dark violet.  That light color either enter the eye from the light source directly or from a reflective surface.  The is no such thing as true black light, but many scientists have argued that due to it's hue it becomes a function of extreme ultra-violet. For us when we see black we are perceiving the lack of light either from a source directly or from a surface that is not reflecting a light color within the range of perception of the eye.  So if what you say in your argument were true any object approaching my eye would appear blue and any object moving away would appear red whether seen directly or in a mirror.  So if you were standing still I approached from the left as I got closer I would appear to be getting darker blue and then violet, for brief moment I would appear as my true color ,an then as I departed on the right I would turn darker and darker red, but my speed and your speed would remain a constant.  So you have proved nothing other than to bring up the light Doppler effect.  By the way blacks rule and red make me drool. :raider:  Ah, how I love this thread.
Title: Re: Red is faster, and I have proof :)
Post by: SLK on Oct 31, 2010, 11:29:49 pm
I forgot  to mention that that it is theoretically possible to approach and then depart at such great speed so as to appear black in both phases extreme ultra-violet and extreme infra-red. So either way the fastest would be perceived as black so go black and be the fastest either way,whether coming or going, I did.   :raider:

Thank goodness someone pointed this obvious alteration to reality.  If you think that Reindeer are Black and White, maybe...just maybe..you think black raiders are faster because you see them as red?  I am just saying that if you have such color blindness issues, it is not so far fetched to think you may see black as red.

Otherwise, well, RED IS FASTER.  Just give up and lets all move on.

I will never submit to the lie of red being faster.  Red stands for communism and mistreated step children.  You would never associate red with being fast.  Ever seen a red fighter jet?  Red cheetah?  Red bullets?  No and you never will...why is that because it is a ridiculous flashy color and that is all.

Post by: SLK on Nov 04, 2010, 02:03:23 am
Having hunted, shot, skinned and eaten...errr I mean captured and trained caribou or reindeer I can attest to the fact that the coloration is much more dark gray very dark gray and even black and on the rare occasion can sometimes lean to the brownish gray, and the lighter color is off white and is very limited in the amount of of hair that is that color until the animal gets very old and starts turning gray or white with extreme age.  An animal in his prime will be mostly black or dark gray.  The only real brown you will find on these animals is the felt on their antlers and even that is a very very dark brown that will pass for black in many cases., they shed that and after much rubbing the polished atlers will look white from a distance but are bone colored or off white. Even their hooves are black.  The caribou or reindeer has no color resemblance to either the whitetail deer, mule deer, blacktail deer, sitka deer, elk, or even the moose.  Its coloration is very unique and and the hide makes for great leather.  I may have revealed too much so don't let the kiddies read this unless you are ready to destroy their belief in Santa and his kindness.  Cause even SLK(Santa L. Klaus) is a carnivore, and last years Rudolph was delicious.  Hope I have not destroyed your image of me and Mrs. Klaus.  In the mean time black is still the fastest.  Ask yourself would Santa tell you a lie?  Of course the answer is NO.   :D

Poisonous and will kill you but no where in your description did I read fast.  If you want to get on the poisonous and will kill you let me name a few black ones: Black widow, scorpion, cobra, black mamba, and gorillas....

I don't need Mr. T to fight this fight...

If I remember correctly, and I always do, the black widow has RED in it which denotes its awesomeness...

And you are right, I didn't mention how poisonous = faster.  Typing during meetings is never good.  Obviously the creatures I mentioned will kill you FASTER.

Nature itself indicates that red is for slower objects.

When a faster, more powerful object runs down a slower one, what color do you end up seeing? Red.

Examples:

When I run over some critter in the road, what comes out? Red.
When a large cat runs down a gazelle, what comes out? Red.
When a hunter shoots the big cat with a very fast bullet, what comes out? Red

Red. Nature’s way of saying too slow, game over. ;D

P.S. I was no asking Mr. T to help you out. I was just poking at him about another thread... :poke:

Red is the color of blood... true enough.  Red represents life.
Black represents death... old, decaying, useless, lifeless.

Black does represent death. People fear death, just as the red Raider fears the black.

You never hear someone yell "Please don't give me life!" :D

I know why all the red Raiders are so upset by the black ones. A Black Raider is like a violent bout of diarrhea to a red Raider.

1st:   an uneasy feeling sets in. You are not quite sure what it is, but you’re sure it’s not good.

2nd:    you start to hear a distant rumbling sound.  It approaches.

3rd:    you start to feel queasy and faint

4th:    it is too late. It is upon you. You run for the nearest small hiding place so others will not see the effect it has on you. You sweat and moan and pray for it to be over.

5th:    now it has passed you and you feel an overwhelming sense of relief. It has left you feeling drained, weak and dizzy. You pledge to never again do whatever it was that brought this Black Monster into your life.

These are the same feelings a red Raider experiences when challenging a Raven Raider.

So... what you're really saying is that all Raven Raiders have diarrhea of the mouth and are therefore full of sh!t...   which we had already established in an earlier post but... thanks for the conformation.   :thumbs:    :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

The thing is, I make statements that resonate with the truth or at least are a little entertaining. You just try to twist what I say to mean the opposite. "So what you are saying is the opposite of what you said."
That is the equivalent of saying oh huh! Not a cogent or entertaining argument at all.  ???

How about refuting the merits of the argument?

Obviously anyone who buys a Raider is a person of impeccable taste. I would not presume to attack the individuals choosing a particular color. The nature of the machine, which is usually not known until purchased, is the object of my criticism. How would one know the Raven was faster until purchased and ridden for a while?

Please do not feel demeaned or ridiculed by my comments. They are not meant as personal attacks. I would appreciate the same courtesy.

I will admit my posts have been a little verbose. I will try to cut them down to less intimidating lengths.
I would certainly never have to resort to foul language to make my point. :cus:

Holy Cliches Batman,  we are back to the same old tired statements that we have covered before and I have debunked.  But I love it, this has got to be the most fun one can have with their clothes on except for riding a Raider.   ;)  Red animals that are poisonous cause slow death.  Red fruits and vegatables that are poisonous cause slow death.  Black animals that are poisonous cause quick death.  Black food that poisonous causes quick death.  Red fruits and vegetables that are healthy also have black counterparts that are even healthier, and generally the black version tastes better.  So I must conclude RED IS SLOW AND WEAK, RED IS SLOW AND WEAK,  :scooter: BLACK IS FAST AND STRONG, BLACK IS FAST AND STRONG :raider:

Umm you got that wrong, when the blacks and blues get through with you, you will be seeing red, so it helps that you already are red.  It also helps to hide all the blood you will be sweating in trying to keep up.

While this thread happens to be a personal favorite of mine, and I don't want to see it come to an end, I have had a bit of an epiphany.

We sit here and argue over the color of our sleds.  It dawned on me that we have become blinded as to whom the real enemy is.  It does not matter if you ride a Red Raider or a Black Raider, all that matters is that you ride a Raider.  Lets take our philosophizing and out venom and aim it squarely at **FILL IN THE BLANK** motorcycles who we all know deserve it dammit.

So I ask, Cant we all just get along?

What's the point of picking on other makes and models of bikes everyone knows they are slower.  The bottom line is that when it comes to Raider the red just doesn't stand a chance next to a raven period.  Arguing that is the same as pissing in the wind.

There is no fun in poking a dead horse or saying my bike is faster than "fill in the blank".  It is more fun to poke at someone who is my equal, and knowing that the only way he can out run me is because either he has more mods or is a better rider, or both.  And also in knowing that if he beat me the first time, we may just switch bikes and he beats me again.  Or it could be the other way around because I was the better rider.  Several guys who ride Harley 103 Screaming weasels kept telling me I was crazy for having my Vstar 1100 and having put more into it to upgrade than what it cost.    So I countered well I have less in my 65 cubic inch powered bike than you have in you 103 do you want to race?  They want to race title for title, I told them okay, I will race a second time title for title if they can beat me the first time.  There was no second race and now I keep taunting them but get no takers.  None of those guys even wants to challenge my raider.  So I have no one to race except another raider and those are never around, so I have to talk big and boisterous here.  So keep saying red is faster or blue is faster or silver is faster I don't care cause I know Black is the fastest. :raider:  But if I ever get a different color it will be the fastest.

I like what you are saying and have decided to sign up for your philosophical teachings....

It is true, if I had a blue Raider, it would be faster than the black raider and so on and so forth.  With that said, I still have my awesome red raider and well...of course..it is faster :)

SOOOOO much faster.  That black is such a burden on a bike.  It weighs it down with its depressing attitude and EMO like qualities.

yamaha knew better then that...that would have really pissed all you other color guys off when we hit 3rd and you all lost site of us.   All kidding aside the Harley guys are starting to give my Raider alot more respect...there starting to hit on me to ride my bike...they can't beleave how fast it is threw the gears with my quick shifter, and how the ass end moves over when I hit second.

There is no fun in poking a dead horse or saying my bike is faster than "fill in the blank".  It is more fun to poke at someone who is my equal, and knowing that the only way he can out run me is because either he has more mods or is a better rider, or both.  And also in knowing that if he beat me the first time, we may just switch bikes and he beats me again.  Or it could be the other way around because I was the better rider.  Several guys who ride Harley 103 Screaming weasels kept telling me I was crazy for having my Vstar 1100 and having put more into it to upgrade than what it cost.    So I countered well I have less in my 65 cubic inch powered bike than you have in you 103 do you want to race?  They want to race title for title, I told them okay, I will race a second time title for title if they can beat me the first time.  There was no second race and now I keep taunting them but get no takers.  None of those guys even wants to challenge my raider.  So I have no one to race except another raider and those are never around, so I have to talk big and boisterous here.  So keep saying red is faster or blue is faster or silver is faster I don't care cause I know Black is the fastest. :raider:  But if I ever get a different color it will be the fastest.

Now that's the funniest thing I've read all day!!!  :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :nana: :nana: :nana: :yay: :yay: :yay: :yay: :lbh: :lbh: :lbh:












ummm no it will never happen, black is fastest!

Mirrorm  is the results of having an I pad with touch screen typing and fat fingers that get to close to the m key when trying to touch the space bar and not catching it before hitting post.  So I have invented an Alaskan term combining mirror and warm that describes how we feel when see the back of Mr T's head in our mirror---mirror warm or just mirrorm.

ummmm...bestest?  I think I can finally rest my case that Raven Riders have NOOOO idea what they are talking about.  I guess you decided on black because it was easiest for you all to comprehend since it is such a dull, lifeless and simple shade of nothingness.

Dint hate red because it sticks out a bit.  Not every can handle such a fast color.

Technicolor light.
Red! I want red, there's no substitute for red.
Red! Paint it red, black ain't mean compared to red.
You don't know what it does to me,
My crimson intensity
I'm haunted by the mystery,
The mystey of red.
Red knocks 'em dead,
Some like it hot, I like it red.
Red is my lover, got it covered
Red is my number, sure as a coma
Red is my drummer, and I hear red thunder
Move over brother,

Sure I will admit that HDs are slow and over priced but I still like their looks and have seen very few black ones.  The best looking HD I ever saw was a gourgous red Springer.  The second was a two tone brown with the candied paint job.  I could see that color on a Raider,  but black is just so sophisticated gentlemanly, and powerful in its looks why go with anything else. :raider:

Yeah, but even in the sixties-- that's 1960's if you wanted a fast car you would get the red line tires, not the black wall. This has been going on long before the raider. ;D

If you wanted a real fast factory built car you would by a grand national series, I had ( oh how I hate to say this) a very fast Red Pontiac that put the whoopin to a whole lot of other makes and colors. I almost picked up one a few years ago that ease on blocks in West Virginia but I just do no have the time to do the work to restore it.

Yeah, but even in the sixties-- that's 1960's if you wanted a fast car you would get the red line tires, not the black wall. This has been going on long before the raider. ;D

If you wanted a real fast factory built car you would by a grand national series, I had ( oh how I hate to say this) a very fast Red Pontiac that put the whoopin to a whole lot of other makes and colors. I almost picked up one a few years ago that ease on blocks in West Virginia but I just do no have the time to do the work to restore it. Shoot I already have two that I can get around to finishing and a third would just be absurd.  But. How I loved that red beast.  But black raiders are the  fastest :raider: :raider:.

Yeah... right.  We know you prefer red... I mean, c'mon... look at that suit.    ;D

i go away for a few days doing reconasaince and come back to find that you black and red riders have let the other colors join in the argument and have offered to responses, you have shamed me, you will find coal in your stockings. The other colors will find nothing from me.  Now as we all know red is the prettiest color and my color of choice, in clothing, cars, trucks, sleds, and four wheelers. BUT when it comes to the Raider black is the hottest and fastest. :raider:

actually he had one of each color in S model and one of each non S, i had narrowed the selection to the red S and the Raven that had been gold pin striped and could not make up my mind, so the wife cast the deciding vote, and i now have the fastest black.

RSR be careful, I don't want to see you hurting yourself laughing so hard at the possibility of that little bike whooping up on a big bad red raider.  We already know he will loose to the blacks raiders and maybe even the other colors, but the reds are a worthy challenge to that little guy and let's not forget he is a Yamaha.  Besides that we know I already have one red stopping black, the other still waits to be seen.

Have even laughed so hard that they had to take me to the ER.  So I am warning you about laughing to hard, I would hate to loose an internet and raider bro just because he found my humor to be too much. ;) ;)  And by the way black is still fastest until you get your 120 kit. :raider:

Now you are really worrying me, if you aren't laughing yourself to the point of total exhaustion and even death you are cracking up.  Maybe you should go take a look at the evening news and eat large meal then go to bed, the first will make you think more serious somber thoughts and relieve the near death laughing spells, the second will calm you some by drawing blood from your brain to use for digestion thus making you sleepy, and the sleep will take you away from the Internet the source of your laughing fits.  I would sure hate to think that one of my humorous writings entered you mind while riding and you then cracked up harming that gorgeous red raider, and maybe even you.   Course you would deserve it for harming the raider even if it is slower. :raider: :D :D :D

They think they’re the fastest, ones of all.
It’s because their minds, can only crawl.

The red now… they’re the sleekest and best.
“We’ve beatin’ them all, so to h*ll with the rest.”

So RSR what new red toy did you get?   I got a four wheeler and have a snow plow on the front of it.  Just for fun I plowed my drive way,  and half of my yard and then did some four wheel fun in the unplowed half.  I may be using it to pull the sleigh in few weeks and give the reindeer the night off.  Shucks I just may have to butcher them and have a feast.  They are quite tasty you know. :D :D :D :raider:  Black raiders are still faster SLK knows. ;)

I should arrive about 11:59.30 pm but you will have to be very quick, we are traveling at warp 11 light speed which slows time for us inside the warp field but to you my half hour stay will appear to be .000000001 second. That is all the time you will have to see us, mount the rifle, take aim, pull the trigger, and unharness which ever deer you choose.  By the way does your state allow the harvesting of female deer, cause even though many think my deer are bull reindeer, they are not. Both sexes of caribou or reindeer grow antlers, the only deer species to do so. Bulls loose there antler in November, the cows loose theirs in March so to have antlered deer pulling the sleigh I use cows.  So they are actually Mrs Prancer, Mrs Dancer, etc. And they are all black in color cause we all know black is fastest.

Kevin,  Mrs Vixon is the oldest, weakest, least productive of the team and will be closest to the sleigh on my right, I would prefer that you cull her.  In her old age she is beginning to fade in color and my soon turn red the only red we need is the beacon light of Mrs. Rudolph's nose.  Please leave her alone she is the youngest of the team and coming along nicely, very black except for the nose and very fast.

Or get lipstick in that shade, or if rouge in that shade would make them look trampy.  Gee red really is feminine. They would never think that about raven black unless the were goth, and I have had lots of men and women gather around my raven and never did I see any that were goth.

No we survive just fine, but things metallic seem to have problems car springs and shocks don't want to respond, car doors don't want to open and when finally opened they don't want to close.

"Salmon get their striking orange-red color from eating tiny orange arthropods such as krill and shrimp. The coloring can vary from almost white to deep red. A salmon’s color depends how many and what kind of arthropods it gobbles up".

Their meat color does come from the food they eat, but their skin color does not. They are still silver until they start the dying process in which their skin turns red.  Once they start the migration to reproduce and enter fresh water they quit eating and only strike at bait which they see as an obstacle that needs to moved out of the way. Once the migration starts and they stop eating they enter the dying process as well.  Their skin then turns from silver to red the darker the red the closer they are to dying and once dead they begin to change color again this time to white, a decaying salmon has white skin and white meat, some even start decaying before they are dead and are covered with white ulcers

There is no fooling an Alaskan Salmon Fisherman.  We know the color and what it means .  Black will never be found on a salmon.  They are slow so they will be white, silver, or red.  Black is for fast fish, like the occasional black bass.

Black rules the speed world. :raider:

Can't be the age thing, I have started the 7th decade of my life and travel around pretty fast.  It can't be because they are newbies, some of those red riders have decades of riding experience.  Some people have trouble with depth perception, sound have difficulty with color perception, some with sound perception,some with spelling perception, some with speed perception, some with taste perception, some with the tactile or touch perception.  I think the red riders have a difficult time with reality perception. :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:  :raider:

SLK I read today in our local paper you got to meet someone new last night.....

On Dec. 24 a Mr. Claus was stopped by Dayton Police officers for speeding, going 85 in a 65, on Hwy. 90 in the river bottom. He claimed he was trying to meet a deadline. While the Dayton Police ran his sleigh plates, Liberty police responded with mutual aid. While Dayton and Liberty police argued over jurisdiction of said Claus, the fog was rolling in. A Mr. Rudolph turned on his red light and the sleigh was last seen heading toward Louisiana in the eastern sky going 110 mph.

This was an actual article on the front page of our paper this morning.....got to love us REDNECKS....

Obviously a faker, had a change of plans do to a rascal hitting the woods, see my post on tragedy strikes, but that could explain why I hit a house and it looked like I had been there already, I chalked it up to the previous problem and Mrs Klaus being at operation control in the sleigh.   By the way after almost 2000 years you would think they could get the spelling of Klaus right. :D :D ;)

Black has no other base coat, so it's paint is lighter plus we have of the advantage of energy conservation, transformation,, storage, easy release.

Actually RFD stands for "Red is Faster Delusion"  It's apparently incurable with common side effects being big head, shrunken penis, loss of reason, and loss of masculinity.  Hopefully soon one of us Raven riders will find a cure and get you poor guys treated.

Hi, I am SLK and I may or may not RFD depending upon whether you ride a red or raven Raider, if you ride a Harley then I do have REHFBS (Raiders Eat Harleys For Breakfast Syndrome). I am not here to take part in a twelve step program to slow me down.  I am proud to have my disorder and am trying to infect others with it.  So either join me or get out of my way cause I am coming through. :raider: :raider: :raider: oh yeah Ravens are the best.

Actually... she realized that when you're wearing red... you can travel the entire world in one night... but pretty much have the sky to yourself.  She's also smart enough (she married you) to realize that there is no way you could handle the Red Raven on the roads at such a speed so demanded you get the "tamer" harley-look-a-like.    :rotfl: :rotfl:

This Harley look alike thing has more lives than a cat.  I have as of yet to see any Harley that looks as a good as any
Raider no matter the color of the Harley or the Raider.  You guys on the pretty red ones just can't compare to the sophisticated yet brawny appearance of the Raven.  I admit I look goooood in red, but even better in black. Face it guys Raven black is tops. :raider: :D :D :D

They're building them better now-a-days so they don't break down like they used to, by they're costing more because of that and they've always been way over priced. They'll never be as fast as other bikes either. That's why they paint most Harley's black! Cause they know that black is fastest. ;D

I must live in la la land or somewhere out of the ordinary, cause I have seen very few black Harleys.  I see more reds, followed copper, then blue and green, then a few blacks, very few blacks.  Most black bikes I see are made by the Japanese: Yamaha, Honda, Kawasaki, and Suzuki in that order.  I Will see 3 black Suzukis to 1 black Harley.  The only reason I don't have a Harley is cost is just to high for what you get in performance.

T I did not expect the confession, I thought you would hold out a bit longer, maybe wait until they brought out the bamboo slivers to drive under your finger nails.  But with your confession I guess I just have to say that we Phialphians have been watching you for a long time.  We were wondering what your game was, but now that we know you just like to ride red motorcycles we will call off the war and Phialphia is inviting Theatalu to a peace conference so that mutual commerce and tranquility can be restored to the gamma quadrant of the central nebula.  Since you prefer to the ride red Raiders we will keep the faster black ones for our own use and sell you all the red ones you want.  However planet Psidelta will be restricted to having only Harleys. :raider:

P.S.  Don't let and Psideltans know that we have the faster bikes they still think that Harleys are the greatest thing since sliced bread. ;D

You mean you (the Phialphians) haven’t been watching us for a long time… right?  That is somewhat obvious since we haven’t had fingernails in the last millennia. But thanks for confirming that you have seen only what we have chosen to let you see. It was our sister planet (Raideon) and the inhabitants (Yamatheians)  who designed and built what is known here on earth as the Raider based on our specifications. The Raven was the beta version and fell far short of our expectations.  In order to recuperate some of the R&D costs we decided to release the Raven to the rest of the universe knowing that, along with the rest of the universe,  the Phialphians would believe they’ve found the fastest V-Twin.  Much to our delight you fell for it… hook, line and stinker.   :D  

The one exception to this was the Psideltans and the entire planet of Milwaukeon. They’re still trying to determine what the sliced bread is for.   ;D

P.S.  
If the children of the earth knew that all Phialphians wear red suits, laugh kinda funny and are… well… somewhat chubby, their  fixation with you would diminish considerably.  As long as you, as a race of people, continue to buy and ride the Raven… your secret is safe with us.  :rotfl: :rotfl:

T we are temporarily calling off the peace conference, that skullduggery of wearing false finger nails is more than we can take.  We will have to give some considerable thought to that.  Let us think about it, can we be sure you are not, well, to put it gently "sissified"? We don't  mind your false delusions of speed, and could care less that The Psideltans and the Milwaukeons are confused about sliced bread.  We are now also concerned about the collusion of our distant cousins the Yamatheians of Raideon in your diabolical plot to distort the color spectrum, light speed, and the perceived speed of Raiders.  Earthlings kids are just like their gullible parents and will believe anything we non-earthlings tell them.  Anyone jumping in on this thread must realize that I am suffering profusely with the worse case of cabin fever ever, and T has been caught up in my halucinations via the Internet virus.  By the way I am still sane enough to realize that blacks rule and reds make me drool. :drool: :drool: :drool: :raider:

I came across this today and found it to be rather entertaining thought I would share and finally put an end to the argument of which color is faster (on a side note I suspect black was just too slow to mention in this particular line of research :) )

When the light bends through the prism can we say that the red goes the fastest? Yes, in most cases. In one particular kind of glass, fopr example, the index of refraction (c/v, where c is the speed of light in vacuum and v is the speed of a particular frequency of light in glass) is 1.514 for red light and 1.54 for blue light, so in this case the red light travels at c/1.51, and the blue light travels at c/1.54, so the red light travels 2% faster than the blue light.

That’s easy… darkness aka Raven.  However, darkness (i.e. Raven) is not something; it’s the absence of something.

Darkness is the absence or deficiency of light: the darkness of night.

You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light, but if you have no light constantly you have nothing and it's called darkness. That's the meaning we use to define the word. In reality, darkness isn't.

If it were, you would be able to make darkness... darker.

So, darkness (Raven) is the absence of speed.  But then, we already knew that.   ;D

Without light there would be no darkness.  Darkness only exists to define the absence of light.

Darkness always comes before the light.

Darkness exists in the absence of light.. What where the first words god said?

"Let there be light".. So before light.. there was... Darkness..

Darkness was there before light was even considered as a posibility.

God doesn't lie.. The bible doesn't lie.. Any questions?

Here's the thing you can't measure the speed of something that is aready there. Darkness is everywhere and no where. You can't do anything to actually remove it totally.

Light however has a measurable speed, darkness moves at the very least equally as fast because when the light turns off it remerges just as fast as the light appeared.

Not to mention, Red is the color of my nemesis. The stop light.. and in the presence of a black out there are no red lights.. so no stopping... see what I'm getting at?

Further proof, black holes, they absorb/bend light. Light has no effect whatsoever on a black hole.. Case and point.

As I stated before...
Darkness isn't "something"... it's used to define the "absence" of something... i.e.  The absence of light... or in this case...speed.   ;D

Furthermore, all galaxies have a black hole.. including our own Milky Way.   Seems to me we’re doin’ ok as far as the “light” goes.

But at the center of a black hole is a infitessimally small piece of matter by volume yet immensely dense and heavy.  It has a gravitational pull so strong that it distorts the light around it and keeps light from getting out, it literally consumes light pulling it appart and turning it into more dense matter, dark matter is what physicists call it.  Light speed has been determined to be 186000+ miles per second in our part of the universe but it can vary in other parts of the universe based on surrounding mass, gravity strenghts and other forces. But all that has nothing to do with which color of Raider of fastest or quickest.  However I will concede that Mr T has a very quick wit.   Alas though until I am proven wrong on the road the Black Raiders are still the quickest. :raider:

Okay Thunder and RSR. I WILL YELL THIS SO YOU CAN HERE, DRINKING EGGS SUCKS, SO I DONT RUIN DRINKS BY ADDING EGGNOG!!!!!   Now as to Webslinger, why would I make a comment about him.  He is a nice guy even if he does hang out with guys who go around riding RED motorcycles.  I won't condemn him for that I hang out with guys who ride red motorcycles, I even hang out with guys who ride Harleys, I even hang out with guys who ride RED HARLEYS!!! Why shoot truth be known I even like them just like I like guys here on this forum.  I need guys who can sling trash talk and live misguided lives on red motorcycles.  They make realize how fortunate I am to have a Raven Raider.   It takes me back to the days of my youth when my means of transportation had pedals and noise was made by cards fastened to the bikes frame or forks for striking the spokes and making that all so desired sound that meant power under the hood or in the frame.  Back in those days when all we knew about motorcycles was Harley Davidson, my neighborhood gang would terrorize the neighborhood on our make shift choppers.  As we pedaled down the street in staggered columns the neighbors would bolt their doors, close there sashes and hide there pets, they did not need to hide their daughters for we were to young to know what girls were for.  We were so naive about girls and the fact that they were to be our babes, (I say babes cause we were young enough that if we used the other word we would taste soap for a week) that we had a girl in our gang and she road in third spot.  But their pets we knew all to well how to terrorize and torture them, we would catch them and tie a string to their tail then tie fire crackers to the other end of the foot long string, light them and then watch the cats and dogs run jump and howl as the fire crackers sang out.  They did not need special laws for animal cruelty back then, just like the did not have child abuse laws, cause when our parents found out we could not ride or been sit sometimes for a whole week.  We were hooligans, were terrors, we were brats and proud of it.  We lived on the Wapsie River and were the Wapsie River Gang.  Gee I wonder what Nancy and Rick and Bob, and Bruce and Wayne are doing tonight?   Anyway Raven Raiders are the Greatest no matter what you guys on red say. :raider: :doorag: :neener:

Oh no, here we go again.

It was one of those mid summer nights of the Midwest, you know the kind, hot but not too hot, a slight breeze blowing just enough to evaporate the sweat on you brow and to cool you down.  We the Wapsie River Gang had met clandestinely in my cousin Rick,s back yard behind the old oak tree.  We were in the midst of planning our next sneak attack on old man O'Brien's watermelon patch.  Nancy asked " Junebug, how are we going to get there?" on our bikes of course, gee girls are sure dumb sometimes.  How are going to keep his dog Brute from hearing us? Asked Bob.  Gees Bob sometimes your as dumb as a girl, we take the cards off our bikes.  Now when we get there Bruce and Wayne will hop the fence and toss melons to us.  But our bikes are slower red ones and if old man O'Brien comes out we will get caught.

I knew if I used a reference to Superman, that one of you would bite.  Well you did and you took it hook line and sinker.  Superman, Kal-El his Kryptonian name, got his strength and speed from his ability to absorb and reuse Yellow light from a from Yellow Sun.  His cape and leotard had nothing to do with his strenght and speed, but were chosen to represent the colors of the United States, a powerful Nation.  His Kryptonian name is closely related to the Jewish words that could be written in English Kalel means voice of God, and God first exhibits his powers in the creation of the Universe by speaking.  Superman could be weakened by any of three means: 1) exposure to the radiation of green kryptonite which only affects Kryptonians, 2) move to an area where light is supplied from other color of sun producing light in the red or spectrum and he would become as any mortal man, once his store of yellow light was used up. 3) move to where there was no light at all and once his store of yellow light was used up he not only became as a normal mortal man but was even weaker than a normal mortal man.  So Ha Ha I got you.  SLK who rides black that can make Superman my servant. :raider:

Now back to the Adventures of Junebug and Wapsie River Gang.  The next evening after supper we gathered as usual to play.  We removed the cards from our bikes so no-one could hear us coming or going. We set off for Old man O'Brien's melon patch.  As we approached the farm and melon patch we were dismayed yay even caught of guard at the sight of Sheriff Meyers Squad car parked in the drive way of Old man O'Brien.  What was even worse was that Brute was outside patrolling the yard and yes the watermelon patch.  Bruce asked What do we do now.  Being quick witted I replied it is only a half mile up to where Otter Creek joins the Wapsie River.  We can go up there and go swimming until things quiet down here then later we can come back and get a melon or two no need to be greedy.  We all agreed and set off for Otter Creek.  Bob said, we don't have any swim suits.  We can just go skinny dipping I replied.  That was fine with all and off we went.  Shortly Bob, Bruce, Rick and Wayne start whispering and giggling, What is so funny I asked.  You will see when we get there was their answer and the giggling continued.  A few minutes passed and we were there, and stripping down.  The other boys were in the water laughing and pointing at Nancy and me on the beach.  They all had sisters, while I and Nancy were both only children, they knew what was coming up next, I did not.  I walked over to Nancy and took here hand and said lets go.  That is when it happened, there on the sand of the bank of the Otter River, I learned the difference between boys and girls, men and women, that which keeps life going on in a family was going to make itself known to me.  Yes under the moonlight sky full of stars, with moonbeams dancing of the ripples of the water, moonlight reaching my eyes as it bounced off Nancy's jet black hair and beaming from her dazzling green eyes, and shimmering of the smooth white skin of her shoulder as we stood there holding hands in mother natures pure form of nudity it hit me.  My wife is calling and I have to go, I will come back and finish this later.  By the way Black rules  :raider:  and red makes me drool :drool:

It's all the same thing. The light and color spectrum follow the same rules. If you wanted to get specific, Yellow light is in between orange and green, not red and green. The order of progression is.

Red
Orange
Yellow
Green
Blue
Purple
and then back to red again to start over.

Keep stretching.

ah my young padawons, you are all partially right and yet all wrong.  over the years physicist have had many theories about light and it was once taught that the color spectrum was basic red yellow and blue.  then it went to red orange yellow green blue and purple.  Then it was later revised to red orange yellow green blue and violet.  Now we have the rovgbiv red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.  As color photography and television advanced the teaching of the physics of light changed to match what was being used in pratical application.  No matter how much you want to believe that mixing 2 colors of light will produce a third color it will not. Red light will always be red, green will always be green.  The magnificent organ called the human translates what  receives and performs neural optical illusions.  Now I am going to get deep here but hang on and read through this and you will be fascinated.  What physicals call white light is not white.  It is clear light and cannot be seen but the neural receptors of our eyes pick it up and translate it in the brain and bright white light.  Now if we pass that through a prism it will divide out various colors of light by wave length giving us a rainbow of color.  the middle color is green.  In the development of television they found they could make all the colors by varying the intensity of red and blue but could not get the vividness they want, but if they used red, yellow and blue the three primary colors of pigment they could, but yellow was always overpowered by red and blue.  Then then discovered that they could use green and have equal intensity and thus the rgb theory of those three being the primary colors of light.  In truth you can make  a spectrum and go to the middle which is green, the go equidistant on either side and combine the three light waves and get back to the same white light but not get a full spectrum if passed through another prism.  The eye of the common cow perceives everything in shades of green,  the darker green it appears the more desirable it is for food.  Plants which have not sight visual receptor nerves will still respond to different colors of light.  increase the intensity of red and they will produce large flower buds and flowers, increase green and they will produce large leaves, increase yellow and they will produce large fruit, increase blue and they will increase underground root growth.  Television and light science has now discovered a way of making the light colors even more vivid and balanced so that the new thing is rygb red yellow green blue.  Work is being done to add to violet or purple to the system in hopes of even greater visual acuity and effects.  So it is possible for Superman to be effected by yellow only and red only and green only.  Now even more interesting is the fact that black is actually a color that can be produced by light and made visible to human eye by the same phenomenon of the brain that causes us to see white.  We see colors when light is either reflected or filtered.  when we look across a room at see many colors we are perceiving by virtue of the brain that which is reflected.  yet we do not see the invisible light that exists between us the object that is seen.  Change the intensity move into the ultraviolet or infrared or combine both and you perceive total darkness or black, also if we were to remove all light by placement of filters and screens and voila we see black.  The class room and the encyclopedias and the text books are at present about 10 years behind in their presentation of light physics.  So much has been learned about light that it will take another 20 years to print and publish and get on the internet 95 percent of what we know now, just think what it will be like in 20 years, we may actually be able to travel to distant galaxies on light powered light ships. So I am stopping here to let you all think and realize that I SLK was right and Black is the greatest fastest and hottest and Superman will be my servant. :raider: Blacks rule and red makes me drool  :drool: :neener:

Well, there stood Nancy and I in the light of the moon in innocent nudity, when the difference between the sexes made itself known to this 11 year old boy.  As i held her hand she said, I can't do this.  What? I stated, half questioning half amazed, you can't do what?  She said, I cant go swimming, it will get my hair wet and dirty and maybe full of sand, it will ruin my hairdo.  I could not believe my ears, she wasn't going to go swimming because she would get her hair wet.  I said well of course, you will get wet hair, what do you expect?  We are going swimming,you cant stay dry.  Yep, right there I learned the difference that men are logical and that women are illogical, they are crazy, they drive men crazy with there illogical thinking and actions.  Why had she said yes to swimming if she wasn't going to swim, why did she strip down if she wasn't going to swim.  the other guys were now laughing it up sounding like a bunch of hyenas as I tried to reason with her.  she was already there already stripped, all she had to do was get in the water and swim and splash and play.  BUT NO!! there was no way.   She wasn't going to mess up her hair. ( My wife has for 38 years driven me nuts with not wanting to do something because it would mess up her precious hairdo.  I got the faster black Raider instead of the pretty red Raider because she wanted to ride on the faster black one. I got the two up cruising seats pegs ,and changed the exhaust so she could ride in comfort, I have spent thousands so she could ride with me, and she says go by yourself it will mess up my hair, it will get wind blown if I don't wear a helmet and I will get helmet hair if I do she says!!!!!!!   AHHHHHHHHHH WOMEN   WHY CANT THEY BE LIKE MEN????? I could have a pretty red raider set up for single up riding but no I have the dull fast black set up for two up riding. )   Well anyway that tore the sheets with me, I told Nancy to get dressed and go home she was no longer one of the Wapsie River Gang.  As for the others they were laughing it up at my expense they could have spared me but they didn't.  Well they would get theirs, oh yeah already my now evil genius was coming up with a plan to get them all.   Well I have to go but at least I have the fastest black raider , yeah right a lot of good that does when I could have a pretty red one.  you know my wife needs a good lesson too!!

Read again black is a color, all color is perception by the brain.  Cows see all as green in varying shades due to the perception of the optic nerve and receptors and the translation by the brain to them even the dark night is green.

I can see that my discourses on light and color are going over some heads, so I will try to dumb down what I have to say :D :D

Black is a color, it is a color in pigment and it is a color in the light spectrum. It is often defined as a lack of color or a lack of light, but that is a simplification of the idea of nonvisible light and color.  Yet that definition is in error because we percieve and translate neural stimulation to the optic sensors of the eye, those sensors which are sensitive to light are called rods and cones.  They have a limited range of light color and intensity stimulation.  We are not able to see that which is classified as clear unless the surface is smooth and has a sheen that can cause distortion and we see or percieve or recognize the distortion.  We can see objects that exist on clear or invisible surfaces. 

We can see black  one of the definitions of black is having no brigthness the DARKEST OF COLORS.  Wikipedia defines black this way  Black is the color of objects that do not emit or reflect light in any part of the visible spectrum; they absorb all such frequencies of light. Although black is sometimes described as an "achromatic", or hueless, color, in practice it can be considered a color, as in expressions like "black cat" or "black paint.

 Close and good enough for elementary education but we can find more, we can find this written about light in many high school physics texts:

Black can be defined as the visual impression experienced when no VISIBLE light reaches the eye. (This makes a contrast with whiteness, the impression of any combination of colors of light that equally stimulates all three types of color-sensitive visual receptors.)

Pigments that absorb light rather than reflect it back to the eye "look black". A black pigment can, however, result from a combination of several pigments that collectively absorb all colors. If appropriate proportions of three primary pigments are mixed, the result reflects so little light as to be called "black". But pigments can also mixed in the right combination so that it can reflect and shine thus giving various level of Bright Black from flat black, to matte black, to dull black, to gloss black.

There is black light and there is a color black.  I could go into more detail but I believe that this is enough for anyone who the ability to read and to learn :D :D :D :D

Black light and Black holes do have the power to overcome draw in and in essance consume the other colors it can also bend and distort, but that is a whole other subject.  So physicists agree that black is a color and the most powerful one. 

Take that you red heathen non-believers. :D

only the Red Raider Riders don't seem to know it.  Well actually way down deep they do know it but just live in denial.  However I admit that Red is the Prettiest.

We return to the continuing saga of SLKs yester years, to that time when he was known as Junebug.  We find our hero Junebug standing naked under the moon, on the sandy low bank where Otter Creek empties into the Wapsie River.  His so called friends and gang members are splashing around in the water laughing it up and now taunting Junebug about his lack of knowledge of the workings of the female mind, that ever elusive state of a womans mind that a man can never reach, that illogical way of thinking and responding, that big difference between men and women.  That difference that he now knew about but yet could do nothing about.  Ahh but his friends, his buddies, his compadres, his sidekicks, his gang, those who were in the water laughing, pointing, taunting, them he understood.  He knew how the male mind thinks and he was a male, and his mind was thinking and he knew what that meant.  He could do nothing about what had happened, but, yes, but he could do something about what was going to soon happen.  His evil genius was at this very point conjuring up a great plan of revenge one, that would get the gang and yes even Nancy. Nancy the name that now made his skin crawl, the hair ,well peach fuzz, on the back of his neck stand up.  He knew exactly what he was going to do, it was now time to put  aside friendship, it was time to exact a pound a flesh.   Hey guys, he said, I have to go apologize to Nancy.  So you stay here for about half hour and then you can hit the melon patch cause all will quiet by then, get three watermelons and meet me back at the tree behind Rick's house.  Junebug got dressed got on his cruiser and headed down the road, but as he got old man O'Brien's drive he pulled in.  He pedaled up to the house and knocked on the door.  As the door opened he said hello.  Old man O'Brien asked what are you doing here.  Well I was on my way to Otter Creek for a late swim, and I got about half mile from here a girl came by crying.  She said that she was part of group that stopped there to swim and that in a little while they were come here and raid your melon patch, she didn't want to so they told her to scram and made fun of her.  So I thought I would stop and tell you what was going to happen, then go back and catch up to her and make sure she gets home okay.
Junebug turned got on his bike and headed back down the road to home.  He got home ate a little snack and thought about what was soon going to happen.  He went to bed and had thoughts of his 4 former companions in prison chains serving time for being notorious melon theives.  Serves them right he thought and he drifted off to sleep.  Well it is time for me to head off for other sites.  And remember guys Black raiders are the fastest, and what ever you do don't get Junebug upset with you. :D :D :D

With the morning sun shining through the window, Junebug arises to a new day.  He consumes a bowl of Cheerios 2 slices of toast and a glass of orange juice.  He heads out the door puts the cards back on the bike and heads out.  he pedals around the neighborhood finding not a single member of the old gang.  There is a large grin on his face as he envisions them in the dungeon of the county jail. He heads towards Nancy's to gloat about his successful revenge, but as he turns the corner to her street he sees a moving van in front of her house.  he rides up to the house to find Nancy playing in the yard. She gives him the cold shoulder treatment as he finds out that her dad bought a house across town and they were moving today.  Last night was to be their last adventure together, suddenly Junebug is full of sadness. He apologizes but Nancy will nothing to do with it. He gets back on his bike and heads for home.  What is that he sees, the rest of gang, they aren't in jail.  He approaches and thinks they are not happy, he finds his mind racing, thinking, agonizing about what his next move should be.  Just then Bruce yells hey there is Junebug.  Junebug pedals over and says hey what happened to you guys last night, I found out Nancy is moving away and she is still mad at me.  Rick says we waited about half an hour, like you said to, then got dressed and headed for the melon patch.  Just as Bruce and Wayne hopped the fence Old man O'Brien opened his door and let Brute out, he headed right toward us then BOOM BOOM old man O'Brien fired his old double barrel. We tore out of there, I never saw Bruce and Wayne move so fast.  Well we got back divided up went home and right to bed.  We ain't never going back to that melon patch.  You should have seen Bob he crapped his pants good when that shotgun went off.  Bob chimed in, well I wasn't the only one.  Now Junebug had his laugh, he who laughs last laughs best, and revenge is best when served cold.  Junebug had his pound of flesh, but now with the news about Nancy something seemed wrong, out of place, empty, and he had no one to share his revenge with.  What would he do without her?   What was this strange feeling?  why did he feel so empty?

Junebug was mystified by his feelings of emptiness, but he came to realize that in part his victory of revenge was hollow with no one to share it.  Nancy was the only one he could tell and she was still mad at him and in the process of moving away.  for weeks things would seem out of balance.  when they played cowboys and indians or cops and robbers every thing was wrong.  it was always 3 against 2 and the 2 were always upset that it wasn't fair, what was needed was a 6th member.  So the search was on, they had to find a new guy or girl to fill in.  after much discussion the decision was made to search our whole sector of town to find a 6th member.   4 possibilities were found,  Mike, Cathy, Clark, and Kent.   Now came the difficult part, 3 had to be eliminated.  First off our hero said no to Cathy, he had had his fill of girls for now even if there was that nagging whole.  The other 4 began to giggle again and prod him.  Whats the matter Junebug afraid of a little old girl chimed in Bob.  Make a mental note, Bob has one coming.  No, we just need someone who is stable.  Bruce and Wayne lived the farthest out in the neighborhood, another block out lived Clark and Kent.  As luck would have it the 4 would have occasional encounters that were full of competition and even combat.  The rivalry kept the 4 of them from getting together as friends and now it was going to keep Clark and Kent from becoming part of the group besides being disliked by 2 of our group they were inseperable where one went the other was. the Wapsie River Gang did not need inner trouble, they did not need 2 only 1, besides Clark and Kent were an in seperable duo.  So by process of elimination Mike would be invited into the Gang.  So junebug and Rick his luitenant set of to invite Mike to join the gang.  They get to Mike's house, and find something very disturbing, somthing that should not be, something that the did not realize could be, something that was going to change everything for them.  Mike was......whats that dear, okay i will come help, see you guys later.  btw Blacks Rule Reds Make Me Drool. :raider:

okay, I am back.   as it turns out Mike was good friends with Clark and Kent.  It was even worse, it turns out that they are part of another gang that our heros did not know about the Workman Street Brawlers.  Even worse at that very moment Clark and Kent show up. they threaten to run off these 2 intruders, but will not act without there leaders Chip and Dale.  Our 2 heros decide to leave and on the way home start making plans to come back and face down this group whose leaders are named after cartoon chipmunks.  they get back to the other 3 and tell them about the rival gang and have a good laugh all around.  Let's face it what kind of brawlers could Chip and Dale be, there other 3 known companion were no threat 2 members of our gang were larger and the other 3 were their equals.  so the plan was laid, on Saturday after getting their allowances, they would ride over to Workman Street Grocery and buy there weekly supply of Bazooka Joe bubblegum, the bubblegum of real tough guys.  in the mean time they had to continue there search for a 6th member to balance themselves out.  As luck would have it  a new family moved into Nancy's old house, and the gang had seen an older girl, but now on Friday they discover that the Olson's have a son too, he is 11 like the 3 older members of the Wapsie River Gang.  Jimmie fit the bill, the ask him to join but he gives our heros shocking news earlier in the day he had met Clark and Kent and joined their gang.   this was more than they could take the Workman Street Brawlers had invaded their territory and stolen their potential member.  This meant war, and they were now out numbered.  The pressure was on, but the plan was laid and 6 members or not it was going to go down.   Rick spoke up, well you know Kenny, over on 3rd street, he doesn't have a gang.  Hey yah Kenny, he is 10 like me said Wayne, he is my size and has black bike.  Bob chimed in now, yeah and it will double our territory and the way the Wapsie bends he is as close as any of us is to the river.   Off they went to enlist Kenny.  to make a long story short kenny joined with a few concessions.  He had a thing for rats and thus the secondary name which most in the gang thought sounded cooler, they were now the Wapsie River Rats and he was third in rank right in Nancy's old spot.  this was going to work out nicely especially tomorrow, that night the Rats went to bed and had dreams of a showdown and the Rats winning.   tune in tomorrow same time same channel to find out if the rats get their bubblegum, do they win the showdown, do they increase there territory even more, do they increase their notority and become even greater terrorizers of their neighborhood?   in the mean time a word from our sponsor

Saturday morning has an electricity in the air as the Wapsie River Rats gather at the tree, allowances burning holes in their pockets.  Time to go, says Junebug and off the go.  They pedal their bikes the 8 blocks to the Workman Street Grocery.  Pulling up to the store they line up their bikes, put down the kick stands, and dismount.  They feel bold and brash as they swagger into the grocery.  They look around and notice that the people shopping seem to stare at them knowing that this was a rough gang and they better keep their cool or something could happen.  Junebug feeling very visceral walks up to the check out stand puts down a dime on the counter and says, Gimme a dimes worth of Bazooka Joe, don't need a bag I just put them in my pocket, they should last me a few days.  Each of the others by their rank in the gang approach the counter and get their supply of Bazooka Joe.  Feeling a bit more rowdy than usual Junebug saunters over to the soda machine pulls out a coke and goes back to the check out stand.  he places his nickel on the counter and says I keep the bottle today.  Outside, Junebug slowly sips down his rootbeer, and mentions that it has full flavor and good body today.
Upon emptying the bottle of rootbeer, he places the empty bottle in the chrome plated welded wire basket saddlebag of his cruise and declares it is time to go rumble.  The 6 of them get on their bikes and head toward Mike's house.  They ride the two blocks south take a right and find their nemesis gang.  There are the Brawlers on the ground shooting marbles as they ride up to Mikes house.  The Brawlers all stand up and approach the fence, and something is wrong, something is very wrong, this can not be right, there is no way that this can be right.  There standing in front of us are 4 boys we know the new guy Jimmie, Clark, Kent, and Mike, and 2 very big guys.  Those 2 big guys can not possibly be Chip and Dale, they are either some kind of very abnormal freak of nature or they are teenagers.  One deep voice says I am Chip what do you kids want, the other large guy in an even deeper voice says speek up punks or Dale will squash you.  5 River Rats are drop jawed and silent, stiff unable to move, they knew they were about to be ground into dust.  Junebug's mind is spinning he is thinking, or he thinks he is thinking, come on mouth say something, get us out of trouble.  Thoughts blurred thoughts what is he going to say.  Then out of nowhere Junebug hears a voice, it is his, and words are being said, High we are the Wapsie River Rats, we are a a a a a club we all live down by the Wapsie River a few blocks from here.  Every Saturday after getting our allowance we go to Workman Street Grocery and get some bubblegum.  I never seen you guys before are you new to the area.  One deep voice says yeah, we are here for the summer, got in trouble back home so our parents sent us here to stay with our aunt and uncle, Kent is our cousin.  Hey that is nice Rick here is my cousin, we live next door to each other.  We have met you friend Mike and Jimmie.  Just then Clark of the Brawlers speaks up, hey Chip those 2 back there are Bruce and Wayne the guys who sometimes give us trouble.  Dale says are you here to give us trouble?   Trouble? Naw we aren't here for trouble, we just like to meet new people well we have to be heading home, now have a good day guys.  Chip says well before you leave we all want a piece of that bubblegum you guys must have bought.  Sure we got plenty how about 2 pieces, so you can have another later?  Junebug tells all his club members to give their new friends 2 pieces of gum.  They all dug into their pockets and pulled out 2 pieces of Bazooka Joe and gave it to the Brawlers.  Well, says Junebug lets go we have a lot to do this afternoon and hide seek to play tonight.  So off they went in silence.  Later back at the tree they discuss what had happened.  They were sure glad that they didn't get into a brawl, those new guys were monsters, they would have ripped their heads off.  I have got to think some more said Junebug lets meet back here after supper.    What will Junebug come up with, what will the gang do, what waits for them, Only SLK knows, come back same time same channel tomorrow for the continuing Saga of the Wapsie River Gang.

Now a word from our Sponsor Raven Raiders.  Hello gang, do you want to be cool, do you want to be respected by man, woman, child, and dog, do you want to be known as fast and powerful, if so stay away from red and Get a Raven Raider. :D :D :D :D :raider: :raider:

Back at the tree after having eaten a hearty midwestern summer supper consisting of hotdogs, potato salad, pickles, and lemonade, Junebug was stretched out on the lush grass eyes closed and thinking of the next move the Wapsie River Rats would pull in their struggle against the Brawlers for supremecy of the neighborhood. Hi Junebug says Rick as he comes out the backdoor of his house, you the only one here?  So far, but have I got a great plan on how to conquer the Brawlers.  Hey guys, what going on says Kenny as he approaches  from the trees on the south side of the yard.  Well we are just waiting for the rest to come and I have a plan, it is a doozie and it will put us on top.   Whats up calls our Bruce and Wayne as they come in from the North, and followed by  Bob who chimes in HI. (Has anyone noticed how Bob always chimes in, I use this term for him for several reasons.  Bob had a voice that was a bit loud, a bit higher than the rest of us and he was almost always in a happy mood, we sort of thought he was what you would call a card short of a deck, a brick short of a load,  a shingle short of a square, a penny short of a dollar,  I guess you could also say the lights were on but no one was home, the elevator didn't go all the way to the top, there was a bat in his belfry).  Anyway they were now all assembled and ready to hear the plan.  Okay guys lets get down to business, everyone is here so this is what we are going to do; we are going to recruit 2 more guys for our gang.  We are? questioned Bob in not so chimey way.  But who? asked Rick we looked all over the neighborhood to get Kenny.  We are going to recruit Bob's older brother, Ralph, and Kenny's older brother, Richy.  Wait a minute says Rick that can get confusing cause sometimes you call me Ricky.  Good grief Rick sometimes you are as goofy as Bob.  Who cares about that?  We need muscle big muscle and those two have it.  We will have 2 big guys in the gang who are bigger than Chip and Dale, and we will outnumber them by 2, and the whole neighborhood will be ours.  We will ask them Monday when they are not practicing football, this will be great, the Wapsie River Rats will rule this area and we won't have to worry about anything.  Everyone of the  Rats cheered they thought this was one great idea.  Little did they know about what lay in store for them, this plan could be great, it could be a disaster, it could solve their problem, or it could add to it, what would the out come be?  Well that is a question to address later right now they were elated and the sun had set, dusk was settling in with a clear sky, they would have a sky full of stars and a moon to play hide and seek under.  So the process began of choosing who was going to be the first to be it.  After 5 rounds of one potato, two potato, three potato four, they had the first to be it, Bob.  Junebug grinned from ear to ear Bob was a little slow at finding where the kids hid and it was Junebugs pleasure to know he a great spot that noone else in the group new about, they would be looking for him all night.  He would once again reign as  the only one not found.  While Bob closed his eyes and counted to 100 Junebug took off for his favorte spot, a hollow in the brush at the River Park just over a block from his house.  No one had ever found him there, it would be great.  Junebug ran to the park and started to crawl into the hollow spot of the brush and came face to face with Mike.  What was going on here why was a Workman Street Brawler, hiding in a special spot in the park that belonged to the Wapsie River Rats?  Get out of here demanded our hero, you are in my spot in my territory.  Mike said oh yeah, well you are in my spot in my territory.  That was more than Junebug was going to take and the tussle started.  They rolled,  they grabbed, they pushed, they tugged, they pulled hair, and tore at clothes.  Junebug was on top and seemed to be in charge of what was going on, just then Mike threw a punch and that was the straw that broke the camels back.  Junebug let loose with a flurry that would make Casius Clay(later to be known as Mohammed Ali) proud.  They rolled out of the brush and into park Junebug now sported a black eye, but Mike was taking the worst of it when suddenly Junebug found himself dangling feet about a foot off the ground, this was bad, this was very bad.

Well it is time to take a break, and now a word from Our New Sponsor Red Raiders and RSR.

Do you want to look cool, do you want to catch they eyes of all the girls, do want people gawking as you ride by, do want to have the hottest looking ride in town, do want to see heads snap as you cruise by, do want to see jaws hit the ground as you casually sit at stop lights, do you want your wife always riding with you so as to be able to fight off the advances of strange women toward her man, do you want people to walk by you parked bike and drool just like Pavlovs dogs?  If you answered yes to one or more of these then you are candidate for a Red Raider.  You can find one at your local Yamaha dealership, or contact Brent at Tejas.   :yay: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :yay:

Come back tomorrow same time same channel for the continuing saga, what is going to happen to our hero, will he live, will he die, what will be the outcome of the attempt to enlist two more into the gang, what evil lingers in the hearts of men only SLK knows and he is not spilling the beans until tomorrow.

Ok attempt #2.

We last left our Hero dangling between the 2 large goons Chip and Dale.  As his feet hung there not able to reach the ground Junebug's mind was wheeling and racing, thoughts were running rampant, he was thinking this was it, if I don't come up with something soon I am going to die.  Death, he knew something about death, he had seen his father die, and his grandfather and his grandmother all in the past few years, they all looked so peaceful and happy as they lay in the coffin at the funeral home.  Peace suddenly came over him, he would make one good looking dead person, young, good looking, well except for the now bruised eye, but the undertaker would be able to solve that.  He could see his funeral now, his mother, aunts, uncles, cousins all gathered around admiring how good he looked, but yet there would be tears, tears of sorrow at the loss of such a fun and beloved family member.  Then there would be the rest of gang members torn up at the loss of their leader, and the rest of the friends from school, and Nancy, yes Nancy she would be there and she would all torn up at his loss and not having forgiven him, this would be even good revenge on her.  He snapped out of his thoughts as he heard Chip say, Dale what should we do with punk?.  Dale said, well we will give him a few good licks and then throw him in the river.  What? was the thought that went through Junebug's mind they aren't going to kill me?  I won't be a martyr, there won't be a grand funeral.  Oh well at least he would be alive and come to think of it a cool dunk in the river on this very warm summer night could be quite enjoyable especially since he missed the swim.  Put him down you 2 large dumb goons said Mike.  You 2 are idiots, you aren't going to do anything.  Remember you are here because you got in trouble back home, get in trouble here and it will be Eldora for you.  The 2 goons put Junebug down and now Junebug had the answer.  Okay his thought to himself, first make friends if possible, so he stuck out his hand to Mike, and said thanks, you are a pretty decent guy after all.  As a matter of fact feel free to use this hiding place for hide seek any time, and I hope you don't mind if I show up every now then.  Humph Mike said, if it weren't for Eldora I would have let them ground you into dust.  Well thanks anyway and I hope we can become friends. (Yeah right, just friendly enough to get what I want you sucker, you gave me the key to controlling this whole section of town).  As Junebug was thinking of how he could best use the new information he heard Bob call out, OLLY, OLLY, OXEN, ALL IN FREE.  Ah ha, he had won another round of hide and seek.  Well, Mike, I hope we can still become friends, I have to go now I won, this round of hide and seek, I hope to see you again.  With that Junebug ran back to the old oak tree, anxious to reveal his new found power over the Workman Street Brawlers.  He arrived at the tree breathless, and Rick seeing his cousin in  crumbled and dirty mess said, what in the world happened to you.    I went over to the park to look for a hiding place and ran into 3 of Brawlers, Mike, Chip and Dale.  If you think I look bad you see Mike, but I had a hard time with Chip and Dale but I won, and I now have the key and know how to keep them out of our way.  All 5 of the rest of the River Rats gasped, and asked HOW?  Well it is like this.........yes dear I am almost done here, you can have the computer back but wait until I make sure this posts. 

But first a word from our sponsor RSR and Red Raiders.     Hello potential Raider Riders, are you looking for the best all round bike?  Are you looking for one that has the best looks of any cruiser on the street, one that has a magnificent V Twin engine, One that is smooth and powerful, one that looks absolutely great right out of the box? Are you looking for a cruiser that thinks it may be a sport bike?  Are you looking for a bike that looks custom right out of the box but yet has flexiblity that is absolutely unbelievable?  How would you like a power cruiser that can be made into a long distance bagger cruise, then ask Gostr8r what he would recommend.  Are you looking for a power cruiser that can be left as is and still be a great bar hopper, then ask any Raider rider what he would recommend.  Are you looking for a bike thatcan be used as a cross over for two up cruiser riding one day and a one up street brawler the next, then ask RedStar Raider what he would recommend.  Yep if you want the looks of a good looking RED cruiser, and satisfaction of being able to make Harley owners cry just at your showing up get yourself a magnificent RED RAIDER.

Back to the Junebug and the Wapsie River Rats.  When we left them by the old oak tree in the backyard of Rick's house Junebug was about to explain how they were going to rule the neighborhood and conquer the Workman Street Brawler.    Well it is like this; those 2 big goons Chip and Dale have been in lots of trouble back in their home town, and were about to get sent to Eldora----Eldora gasped the rest.  Yep Eldora,  Kiddy prison, detention center, juvie hall, correction home, lock down,  the reformatory, yep the Reform School.  We are going to go anywhere we want anytime we want and if those 2 start something all we have to do is say the magic word ELDORA.  We don't need Ralph and Richy.  What is even cooler is I think I have got Mike thinking we are possibly going to be friends, and he has the ability to keep Chip and Dale in control all he has to do is say something to his parents and those 2 idiot goons will be gone.  So we are going to treat him and Jimmy and Clark and Kent nicely as long as Chip and Dale are here.  We will then gain control of them and if they think we are there to be nice they will be nice to us.  Just think a few nice pleasant words a piece of gum every now and then and they will be out of our hair and we will run the place.  You know if this pays off we may have to change our names cause we will be in control of more than this Wapsie River area part of town.  We could expand to the entire quarter, the whole area east of the River and North of Highway 20 will be ours.  Just think instead of the little park up the street we could have the school yard playground and the City Parkup by the court house could all be in our territory.  Shoot we may even have to take in new members just so we will have enough to cover the area.  Junebug could see it now, his mind was imagining him at the lead of a pack of 20 or more kids on bikes.  He could see his gang including all the guys from both of the 5th grade classes at his school and maybe even the guys from the 5th grade catholic school.  But they would not have any girls.  Nancy was still bugging him, it really bothered him how he had been duped by a girl, how she had caused his embarassment, how she had refused to follow his lead.  Little did Junebug know that that was just the first lesson and a small one on the way women think,  it was just a small thing in the scheam of life that he would later learn about the thing called war of the sexes.  As a matter of fact it was bothering him that Nancy kept popping up in his thoughts, what was it about her that had such control of his mind that he would think of her when facing death, when feeling victory, when playing games, or when just our riding his bike.  Why did he miss her so?  Quit it he said to himself under his breath, this is not about Nancy, this is about important things, Yeah important things why was Nancy always popping up in his mind when something important was happening.  Quit it mind get back to the task at hand, we need to take a ride, clear my head.  So Junebug says mount up guys we are going for ride.  Where to? asked Kenny.  We are going over to Workman Street then we are going up the school yard where there is more than just swings and teeter totters.  We are going to play on Monkey Bars, and the merry-go-round, and the trapeze set, cause we are the Wapsie River Rats,  Then his mind went to back to thinking about a new name that would would be more appropriate for the new size of the gang and the territorty they would cover.  As they pedal to school he was deep in thought about the name change and then it hit him he knew what they would call themselves, he could not wait to get to the school yard and tell the gan what they would call themselves.  They finallly got there and got off their bikes and Junebug said before hit the play ground I have a new name for us tell me what you think the new name,  we will be known as the Indy......,

well I have to go now but first a word from sponsor RSR and the RED RAIDERS,

Hey Guys and Gals,  are you tired of those same ol' same old bikes you have been getting around on, are you tired of having a Harley and wearing all that Harley gear, only to be left behind by every other bike on the road. Are you tired of having that old Harley attitude and having to walk away with a final statement to another rider on his bike being, "Well, it ain't a Harley!"  and wishing you had something better to say. Are you ready to save money and get and attutide ajustment, and find yourself riding up front,  having more power between your legs in a big 113CI engine that doesn't need modding to prove it has muscle, in a bike that has more glaring style that draws stares just by rolling down the street.  Then this is your lucky day, because I have the answer for you. GET YOURSELF A RAIDER.  You heard me a Raider, yep a Jap bike, a Yahama Star, and there is reason why they are the star line, they SHINE my friend and if you really want to shine, get yourself a RED RAIDER and become the envy of all who ride on 2 wheels and even those who go around in cages.  Lets face it Red Raiders make me  :drool:

Back to the theme of the thread, Red versus Black.  I have several buddies who ride Harleys there are more red ones than black ones, and they all think red is faster, but the one black one says his is faster. Then one of the guys who owns a red one, bought a black sportster and has discovered that it is fast than his red one all the other red ones he rides with.  Now I know they are harleys but even amongst harleys Black seems toe the  common color but the fastest they have.  You would think they would make more black ones in an effort to try to keep up with even the slowest RED RAIDERS   :D :rotfl: :D :rotfl: :nana: :ohyeah: :yay: :poke: :raked: :raider: :raider:

We pick up our story with Junebug about to reveal the new name the gang would go by, it would be the Indy Packers.  What? Exclaimed the rest of the gang, that is ridiculous.  What ever made you come up with that? they asked.  Well some of you dads work at the packing plant and the Green Bay Packers are my favorite team.  Bob, sounding quite reasonable for once spoke up and said that is just stupid and sounds dumb, we should be the Indy Vikings, cause Vikings are keen and they were raiders like us.  Wayne said hey wait we should call ourselves Raiders, the Indy Raiders, like that new team in California.  The rest of the gang enthusiastically cheered and exclaimed YEAH WE WILL BE THE INDY RAIDERS!!!!!  Junebug was beside himself, his gang had rebelled, this was mutiny, what was he going to do, he had lost control. Think, think, think, how can he salvage this and get back control of the gang. He had it, yeah that would work act like you are thinking it over then exclaim that it is a great name and have a vote.  You know he said that does sound great, we should have a vote. All in favor of calling ourselves the Indy Raiders raise your right hand. Up went 5 right hands and one left, after several snickers, Rick said RIGHT HAND BOB RIGHT HAND!!  Gees, Junebug is so right when he says you are as dumb as a girl.  Well with the new name settled it was time to take over the playground.  The Raiders spread out and looked the playground over and ended up at the merry-go-round.  Have you ever considered the merry-go-round.  That is one piece of playground equipment that must have been developed by someone who hated kids.  Just think about it, you get a bunch of kids on it and start going around and around and around and around, again and again and again  and again, going faster and faster and faster and faster until they are almost being flung off and getting dizzy and dizzier and dizzier to point of not being able to stand up and finally puking all over the place; and then kids being dumb want to do it again, and this day was no exception, soon there were 6 sick boys loosing their cookies all over the place.  After twenty minutes or so of laying on the ground, they were back on the merry-go-round doing it again, but the second ride was not quite so fun, have you ever tried to puke when your stomach is empty, yep dry heaves and they are not fun, to say the least, but or group is bunch of sadomasochists the go a third time.  After the third recovery they decided it was time to go home  and get some supper.  Lust to make things interesting Junebug decided to go home by way of the Workman Grocery Store and the soon to swallowed up Workman Street Brawlers Gang's territory.  So off they went.

And now a word from our Sponsor Matt St. John and Raven Raiders.

If you want a no BS bike that doesn't need catchy phrases and fancy words to draw your attention if you want pure power and speed unrivaled by any other cruiser get the best get a Raven Raider.

Matt go back and reread the commercials in my little episodes.  Never once will you see that the Red is the Fastest Raider, it is always faster than a Harley, but never faster than a Raven Raider.  I did extol all its others virtues of which there are many, it just isn't the FASTEST Raider Ravens are.

We pick up with our guys pedalling their way to the Workman Street Grocery where they intend to stop in for brief rest and to procure a new supply of Bazooka Joe bubblegum.  They enter the store as usual and peruse the counter with comic books, then make their way over to the meat counter to admire the large stick of balogna, and think about savoring a bite of a freshly made hot fried balogna sandwich with a layer of fried onions a slice of cheese, lathered in mustard and Miracle Whip, served with potato chips and a orange soda.  Even to this day 50 years later I can taste it and oh how wonderful it was, even now as I sit here childhood memories of those sandwiches block out the thought of having a top sirloin burger smothered in mushrooms which has become my new favorite sandwich.  Anyway after their stop at the deli meat counter they make their way to the check out stand and purchase the Bazooka Joe bubblegum.  Sauntering out of the store they casually stride over to their bike and discuss if the should ride north first and come into the Brawlers neighborhood from the north or should they ride south a few blocks and enter from the east.  Rick suggests going north and take short ride on the Railroad right of way on top of the flood levy.   That sounds good to me says Junebug, lets go.  So they all mount their bikes and go north the 3 blocks to the Raidroad Station turn left and ride 3 more blocks to reach the point of leaving the levy.  There is a well worn groove going down the side of levy left behind by the many bicycles that turned south and ridden down the side of levy to gain speed and coast down Corrine avenue, which runs south right through the Brawlers neighborhood and into the middle of the former Wapsie River Gang/Wapsie River Rats and now Indy Raiders territory.  Junebug is first to go down followed by Rick, then Kenny, then Bob, then Bruce, then Wayne.  They all give a gleeful holler, and coast down the street to see if they can run into the Brawlers.  They sing and shout for they want their presence to be known.  Then suddenly right in the middle of the Workman Street Brawlers territory they come face to face with the entire gang.  Loud and boisterous Chip calls them to halt and says just what do you guys think you are doing.  Well we are on our way home after getting some bubble gum.  Dale growls, not unless you give up some gum, otherwise you ride ends here.  Just the opportunity Junebug was looking for.  He boldly says no way are you getting any gum.  Chip says Big words from a little guy.  Junebug counters with well you know I don't think I have to worry about you.  If you try anything it could mean a long stay at Eldora.  Both Chip and Dale grow pale, look at each other and then at their cousin Mike.  Cousin Mike now looks pale.  Junebug says you guys don't want to mess with Mike either that will just get you to Eldora that much quicker.  The Indy Raiders look to Junebug who just pedals off and they follow behind.  They were now in control.  It was easy and no one had throw a punch or take a punch, this could end up being one great summer.

Now a word from our sponsor Matt St. John and Raven Raiders. 

Hello motorcycle enthusiasts, if you want to have a great looking bike, that gets mistaken for a custom, one that makes others hang their head in sadness when they learn how much they spent in comparison to you, and have a bike that just plain gets up and goes with out any competition then get yourself a Raven Raider.

Well, now Junebug had pulled off a bloodless coup of the entire northeast quarter of his home town.  Soon the Indy Raiders would find themselves in a routine, of bike riding, going to the many parks now available to them, skinny dipping up at Otter Creek, trips to the Workman Street Grocery store to get their supply of Bazooka Joe bubblegum and the occasional bottle of pop, or popsicle depending on their mood.  The summer was coming to a end and fall was about to well fall.  The goons Chip and Dale got sent home, and Junebug found himself dropping around to see Mike more often and soon they had forged a friendship and now Mike and Jimmy were becoming regulars in the Indy Raider activities.   It was a cool Friday evening and the whole gang was the old oak tree planning on starting another evening of hide and seek, when Kenny proposed that they do something different.  Rick asked what could they do that was different from all the stuff they had been doing all summer. Kenny said, well my brother has a date tonight and is planning on going to Make Out Point, we could go up there and have some fun.   Bob asked what do they do at Make Out Point?  Rick said well they get their girl friend and go up and do a bunch of kissing, yucky stuff.  The kind of stuff we need to stop, for sure, anybody who does that is just plain dumb.  Kenny's older brother Richy had a cool white 56 Chevy that would be easy to spot and they could have some real fun shaking it up and having a real  shivaree.  That sounded good to all.  But first they had to have a plan.  So they took some time to plan out how they were going to do this.  Make out point is just over the Railroad tracks on a point that sticks out in the lake at the north edge of town, so it would be best to to come up from the south the most direct route.  When they got to the tracks they would leave their bikes and sneak up over the tracks under the moonlight and when they saw the white 56 Chevy they would surround it and give it a good shaking while whooping, hollering and whistling.  After a minute or so they would run back over the tracks to their bikes.  This was going to be fun.  They could then wait 10 or 15 minutes then make a second sneak attach.  That would really get Richy.  So off they went the plans were laid and they were going to have some real excitement and pull off a prank that would top all pranks it would become legend one that would not be equalled in hundreds of years one that would be fabled and make the Indy Raiders envied by even the Hells Angels.  Junebug even envisioned that one day a movie would be made about of Raiders Summer of '61.  So off they went pedalling their way to the place was going to mark thier monemt in history.  Little did they know about what lay ahead for them, little did they know of the fate that would fall upon them, little did they know about the great change was going to fall on them this late summer evening.   You may ask what evil lurks in the hearts of men, well SLK knows, and he will tell you more later.

And now a word from our sponsor  Matt St. John and Raven Raiders.

Hello fellow Raider Riders, I know that there are many out there who think Red is the fastest Raider, and some think blue is the hottest thing on wheels, and some favor the Silver.  They are all great bikes and great rides and all are fast, but if you want the best in sophistication, best in power and best in speed, go black and never look back. :raider: :raider:

hey guys I got an app for my droid2 this morning that works off the gps system some how..

We've got to get together this year bro.

 I will be in Chugiak/Eagle River/Anchorage several times this summer, but the wife alway wants to go in the car. One of my projects is the conversion of one of my trailers to haul the raider or the king quad.   Other wise my riding down there is done on my old 1100 vstar that is now owned by the daughter and son-in-law.  Will keep you posted as to when we will be down.

Blacks rule reds make me drool :drool: :drool: uncontrollably

When we last left the Indy Raiders they were headed for make out point, and for a date with destiny that would forever alter the way they looked at the world.  They arrived at the raised railroad tracks the point where they would leave their bikes.  They had a brief meeting to review what they were going to do.  Okay said Junebug, we go up to the top keeping low so we won't be seen.  Once on top we look for Richy's white 56 Chevy, when we find it we sneak up to it surround it shake it and holler for a mint or so, then we scramble back to here.  Then a little later we do it again until Richy leaves.  So the adventure begins, the make there way to the top look around at the several cars below and then Kenny said, over there is Richy's car.   Down they went, staying low, they made their way over to Richy's car, they surround it carry out the sneak attach. After a minute of rocking the car and whooping it up they charge back over the raised track back to the bikes.  They keep the cheers low and quiet cause they want those in the cars to think they have left.  They wait about 20 minutes anxious for the next go around.  Junebug says in a quiet voice, it is time for the next attack we do it the same way.  So off they went.  The Raiders surround the car for a second time and start rocking it and whooping and then the door opens, immediately Kenny starts his retreat, cause he doesn't want Richy to know he is there, Kenny has a strong desire to stay alive.  The other start splitting to all except Rick who is standing by the left head light and Junebug who is standing on the other side of the car door. Both are awe struck for it is not Richy standing there, it is Gordy Blair.  As it turns out Gordy Blair also has a white 56 Chevy.  You may ask who is Gordy Blair, so I will tell you.  Gordy is a guy who has a reputation known all over Northeast Iowa.  First off, Gordy is only 17 but he is a big boy he stands 6' 2" in  bare feet.  He ways in at 235 lbs and is all muscle, as a junior he is all state in football and track.  He hold the conference record for rushing, touchdowns and also defensive sacks.  In track he hold the record for shot put, discus, and javelin, he is known for benching pressing way over his weight, and for a big guy he is fast.  Rick has come to his senses and is now running over the tracks, but Junebug is standing there blabbering you ain't Richy, you ain't Richy, you ain't Richy.  Gordy says yeah kid ,I ain't Richy.  Junebug is now eye to eye with Gordy, and Gordy says just who are you?  Junebug realizes he is also nose to nose and his feet are not on the ground. He also hears his voice saying his name and saying but the call me Junebug.  Well Junebug says Gordy your new name is mud.  Junebug makes a nervous giggle and hears his voice again, it is a good thing his mouth can find words while his brain is in shock, he hears his voice apologizing and saying it will never happen again, and that if he was allowed to live he would see to it that no young punks ever pull this kind of prank again. Gordy just holds Junebug a low growl coming from his throat. 

Well it is time to go to bed , but first a word from Matt St. John and Raven Raiders.

You will hear a lot of praise for the Red Raider here, and true it is a great bike, but it sits in the shadows when ever a Raven Raider is around.  The Raven is subtle in it's color presence, but has an air of mystery, a dashing stance, and unbridled power and speed, no other cruiser can compare even the Red Raiders have to bow to it despite the claims of their owners.  get yourself a Raven Raider today and see what real excitement is.

When we left Junebug he was in the clutches of Gordy, babbling on endlessly hoping not to get killed, by the behemoth athlete.  Gordy draws in Junbug nose to nose and says, okay get out of here and never pull that stunt again, or the next time I will kick your butt over the goal post.  He dropped Junebug and Junebug was off like a shot.  He was over the track and down to his bike in record speed, a speed that would lead him to success on the ball field, he could steal a base so quickly that if you blinked he was there.  He could run a mile faster than even Gordy and that ability carried over to the swimming pool, if had not been a for an Achilles heel injury in junior year of high school there is no telling where he would have gone in the sports world.  Anyway back to the story, he hoped on his cruiser and was off like a shot.  He made it to the oak tree in unbelievably short order after having passed all the rest of the Indy Raiders on the way.  A few minutes later when the rest of the Raiders arrived, they were very curious and wondered what had happened and what kind of fire it was that made Junebug move so fast.  After taking a deep breath and finally getting his witts back Junebug told them what had happened.  As it turns out fear is a great motivator.  It sure does get the juices flowing ( we call it juices because Junebug had not yet heard about adrenalin, and the fight or flight syndrome that accompanies high adrenalin) when one gets frightened and scared senseless.  But this also gave Junebug a chance to think things over even it was but a brief moment.  He realized that maybe trying to be the Bad Boys was not such a great thing, maybe they should change into a group of crusaders who did good things, who maybe even rescued people from grave danger, a group of guys who would be looked up to and respected rather than feared.   Yes, that was it they would be a group and not a gang,  a group of good guys that when they came down the street people would not bolt the doors and hide their pets.  They would be heros doing heroic acts, they would share their parks and territory with all.  This was a summer that would go down in history, this was the summer of great change for Junebug. 

Come again, for the next chapter of Junebugs summer of 61.  In the mean time when it comes to Raiders you all have to admit that Red Raiders are sure pretty, but when it comes to speed the Raven is ahead of them all.

let me see, when we last left Junebug he was contemplating the change of the Indy Raiders from a gang of thugs to a group of upright law abiding heros.  He was telling the Raiders about how there local sports hero had the villainous young hoodlum in his grasp and instead of thrashing Junebug he turned Junebug loose with a warning, but not until Junebug had promised to mend his ways.  What do you mean asked Ricky.  Well, said Junebug we are giving up being a gang of thugs and we are going to share the parks, we are going to help people, and we are not going to terrorize animals, or steal melons or anything like that.  The Raiders just stood there dumbfounded.  finally Wayne spoke up and declared well not me, I like being a bad boy.  Soon most of the rest, except for Ricky agreed with Wayne.  Junebug had to do something, dissension in the ranks could not be tolerated.  Well, said Junebug, if that is the way you feel then you can either change your mind and stay with me, or you can quit being a Raider.  He was certain that that ultimatum would bring them around to thinking like him.  But something weird happened, Bob, Kenny, Bruce and Wayne went into a huddle.  For several minutes they talked then came out of the huddle.  Kenny announced, Junebug, you are no longer the leader, after a vote we have a new leader, ME.  Kenny went on, you can either follow me or leave the gang.  junebug could not believe his ears.  He was a leader not a follower, he made the decisions, he did not take orders, he gave orders and he proceeded to them so.  Kenny said, not any longer we all agree that you are out and I am the new leader.  Ricky can either follow me or he can go with you.  Ricky now had to make a choice, what would he do?     

Well a word from our sponsor RSR.  Red Raiders are the Best Looking Beasts on the road, and nothing can compare to the beauty of this machine.  In one sweet bike you get beauty, head turning attention, power and ridiculous speed.  See one at your Yamaha dealership today.

Ricky now had to make a hard decision.  Was he going to stay with the Raiders or was he going to stick with his cousin Junebug.  Bob started laying it on, if you go with Junebug you will just be a sappy chicken like he has become.  Stick with us and be a real guy.  Rick gave it a minute and said to Junebug, what do you think Junior.  He used the family nickname that meant that he was hoping Junebug had a answer that would keep him in good relations with his cousin and with the gang.  Junebug said, well if they all want to do the wrong thing I can't stop them and I can't stop you from going with them, but I hope you will go with me.  That was not what Ricky wanted to hear but it made up his mind for him.  Ricky said, I am going with you guys, I want to be a terror to the neighborhood.  Junebug was floored, he got on his bike and rode off to his house next door and went to bed.  He slept fitfully but came up with an idea.  the next morning he got up a changed character.  he went to church came home had a chicken dinner, and settled in to watch tv.  that night after watching a episode of Lassie he formed a plan.  the next morning after breakfast he put his plan into action.  After watching Captain Kangaroo he got on his bike and rode toWorkman's Grocery and got himself some Bazooka Joe Bubblegum and a orange pop.  After drinking the pop and taking a short break he got back on his bike and rode over to see the remainder of the Workman Street Gang.  He found Jimmy without any of the others. Junebug asked where the rest were.  Jimmy said that it was unbelievable what had happened.  The 2 goons Chip and Dale had broken into the Workman Street Grocery and messed up the back room and stole a case of rootbeer.  They then split the pop with Clark and Kent.  They all got caught by the deputy sheriff known as Garney.  They were all down at the courthouse having a hearing and it looks like the goons are going to end up in Eldora, and the other will be on probation and Mike is with his parents down at the hearing.  So Junebug decided to ask Jimmy if he would like to go the park and maybe ride up to Otter Creek for  a swim.  Jimmy said sure and so off they went to the park and a new friendship was being formed.  They had fun swing ning and playing on the monkey bars.

Now a word from RSR:   

If you are looking for a great ride with ridiculous speed, comfort, and wonderful beauty, look no further go get yourself a Red Raider.

While at the park the old gang showed up.  this was going to be interesting thought Junebug.  He wondered what would happen, and he did not have to wait long to find out.  The new leader Kenny spoke up, you guys have to leave cause the Raiders are now here.  Jimmy started to leave but Junebug had other plans and told Jimmy to stay put.  Junebug wasn't afraid of any of these guys , he was the biggest and the oldest, he ha 5 lbs on Bob the next biggest and was 3 months older than Ricky his cousin who was next oldest.  Junebug said well we are staying and you Rats can stay or go it is up to you.  Kenny gave Junebug a dirty look and said get him Raiders. Junebug stared them all down, Ricky backed away, he did not want to mess with his cousin.  Bruce and Wayne decided it might best to go home case Wayne said I think mom is calling us lets go home NOW, so off went Bruce and Wayne.  Ricky said Bob you don't want any Part of this lets go swing, and so they did.  I was now Kenny and Junebug toe to toe.  Junebug said well Kenny, you aren't Raiders anymore, you are just the Wapsie River Rats again and it looks like the rest of rats have left, maybe you should too.  Kenny wanted to stand tall and tough, and said, I don't need them, and took a swing at Junebug.  He caught junebug on the chin, but Junebug just stood there and laughed.  Kenny swung again and got the same result.  Then Junebug stopped laughing looked at Kenny and said is that all you got? Take another swing but be ready cause if you do I will swing back this time.  Kenny turned and started Running home.  Hey come back Kenny, called Junebug, you are leaving your bike.   Kenny came back and got his bike and left.  Well this had been an interesting few weeks.  The old gang had lost the only girl, got a new member, faced down a rival gang, mutinied against Junebug, and was now falling apart.  Junebug had made a new friend and had an inroad into to the rival gang tat also seemed to falling apart.  His relationship with his cousin and old friends was strained.  what was going to happen next.  what good and evil lurks in the heart of boys?  come bak for the next chapter of Junebug's escapades and find out.

Now a word from RSR and Red Raiders.  Are you looking to get away from the Harley image but still want a bike with a big V twin a belt drive, yet is reliable, powerful dependable and has ridiculous speed?  Then I have the answer and the bike for you, get yourself a red Raider from the Yamaha Star lineup.

With smurfy blues, no paint silvers, ridiculously beautiful reds, what is this bike world coming to? At least a few of us have enough sense to stick with the sophisticated, powerful, and fast raven black ones. :raider:

RSR you crack me up.

with the gang falling apart, relationships strained, In roads being made into the rival gang that was falling apart, Junebug was in an interesting spot and had to do some thinking.  He told Jimmy it might be best if they went over to junebug's house and play for while, so they did.  While at Junebug's house they went out to the boat tied up by the back porch and using a couple of old cane poles went fishing.  Jimmy started to talk about what was going on with the rest of his old gang and Junebug just listened and mulled over what he was hearing.  With the old leaders going off to Eldora, and 2 more being in trouble and probably going to be on probation, that left just Jimmy and Mike and that was no gang, just a couple of guys who had no gang and no other play mates.  That was good news for Junebug, there were two guys looking for a leader, he was a leader looking for followers.  The old River Rats were now leaderless and falling apart too.  If he played his cards right Junebug could end up putting together an even bigger better gang.  After catching a few perch Jimmy went home and Junebug kept right on fishing.  after catching 6 perch, Junebug quit fishing.  He cleaned the fish and put them in brine so his mom could cook them for supper.  he then got on his bike and started riding around the neighborhood to see what was happening.  Nothing was going on none of the old gang was to be found, they were all inside their homes.  Junebug decided to go home too and watch some tv  he could use some laughs and cartoons should be on.   Junebug was ready, he had formed a plan.  he would cement his friendship with Jimmy, then work on Mike while watching the Rats fall apart.  When they were in shambles he would step back in and reform the gang as the new Raiders.  All was well with him, he would have a fish supper, watch tv, go to bed and have sweet dreams, get up tomorrow and put his plan in action.   

Will his plan work?  Will the summer end on a good note?  Will Junebug go down in local history?  Only SLK knows the answers.

The preceding chapter was sponsored by Red Raiders, the fastest Raiders on the planet. If you're tired of the old tired iron nonsense America has to offer in a Cruiser, go to your local Yamaha dealer and sit on the new Star Raider, be bold!! and take it for a spin, and you will see why so many are now moving to what Yamaha Star division is producing in Japan, and tell them RSR sent you!!

Junebug got up the next morning, ate hearty breakfast, watched Kaptain Kangaroo and headed out to ride.   It wasn't long before he had a tagalong.  His cousin Ricky had fallen in and asked him , hey Junior where are you heading?   Interesting thought Junebug, he used the family nickname, Ricky was trying to make up.  Time to play his first card, well I have a new friend and I am going to his place, he has a real neat train set.  Oh, said Ricky, who is that?  You know him said Junebug, Jimmy Olson, and Mike might be there too.  Ricky came to an abrupt halt and he was speechless.  He watched Junebug ride off.  Ricky finally turned around and rode back home as quickly as he could.  He found Bob and told him that Junebug was not only friendly with Jimmy, but Mike too, and that he may be joining up with the Workman Street Brawlers. Ricky and Bob decided to find Bruce and Wayne and tell them what had happened to Junebug.   In the mean time Junebug had arrived at Jimmy's and was having a great time playing with train set.  It was a really nice set up.  As it turned out Jimmy's dad worked for the Illinois Central Railroad and loved to build scale model railroad setups.  This one had a little town a farming community, hills, trees and a tunnel laid out on 2 saw horse supported tables that were about 4 feet by 6 feet each.  Soon Mike showed up and was surprised to see Junebug there, but was friendly.  He soon found out that the Wapsie River Rats had also fallen apart as well.  Junebug was not a threat to him and vice versa.  Subsequently they were all playing with the train set, having fun, and laughing together.  As Junebug was enjoying himself with new friends he completely forgot about trying to set himself up as the leader of a new gang, he was just having fun.  After a while Junebug suggested tat the all go to Workman Grocery and get a pop.  Mike agreed and so off the went.  The road down the street 3 abreast, no leader just friends and equals.  Junebug liked it.  He began to realize that being a gang leader was not so important.  What was going to happen now?  What courses were the 2 defunct gangs going to take?  Only SLK knows tune back in for the next chapter.

What bike can get you from point A to point B in the greatest style, looks and comfort offered by any cruiser line?  What cruiser offers the biggest Vtwin engine, with the most power, smoothest ride, most speed right out of the crate?  the answer to both questions is the Raider, and the Red Raider is the Best looking one of the bunch.

as for glacier blue it is named after glaciers, think about it, blue glaciers--survive a long time but they move very slowly, they fall apart at the end of their journey, and the slightest heat causes them to melt away.

color is no indicator of sex, or sexual preference, racial distinction, or brand. It is only used to tell the bikes relative speed and flash. Red is very fast and flashy.  Black is pure speed and stealth.  the slowest is purple, advancing in speed you will find blue then green then yellow then orange then red, but the all tail behind Black.  notice silver doesn't even rank.

Arriving at Workman's Grocery Junebug walked in with his new friends, placed a 25 cent piece on the counter and ordered 6 pieces of Bazooka Joe bubble gum.  He then  handed 2 pieces to each of his new found friends.  he walked over to the pop machine and asked the guys what they wanted.  Mike sai he wanted a Nehi Grape so Junebug got him one.  Jimmy got a Shasta Orange, and Junebug got a Big Chief Rootbeer.  Mike and Jimmy thanked him over and over for his generosity .  Oh it is nothing he said. next time one of you can buy.  they left the store to go sit on their bikes and drink their pops.  Mike said it sure had quieted down since his cousins got shipped off to Eldora, but he was glad they were gone.  Junebug stepped out of character and said he was glad to see them gone because they were scary guys and made him real uneasy.  Mike said, man I never would have thought you were scared of them 'cause that time in the park you acted tough and unafraid.  Well, said Junebug, I have an older cousin in the army and told me that you are to never let an enemy know you are afraid no matter how scared you might be.  As they were talking  Bruce and Wayne road up and could not believe their eyes,  there was there former leader an he was with 2 of the enemy.  Junebug saw their look and said hi guys I might see you later, have fun.  then he said to Jimmy and Mike lets go to the park, and by the way I don't know why people call me Junebug, I mean good grief I was born in May,  my mom sometimes calls me jitterbug junior because she says I can never sit still. The rest of my family either calls me Louie or Junior, I like Junior better so would you guys call mr Junior.  Mike and Jimmy agreed to call him Junior   Bruce and Wayne could not believe it.  The 3 new friends headed off to the River Park leaving the 2 former Wapsie River Gang members to wonder what was going on.   The 2 left to go find Ricky and Bob to tell them what they had just seen and heard.  They were so upset that they forgot to get anything at the store.   

What was going on was Junebug laying the ground work for a new gang or was he really making new friends?  What did he mean when he told Bruce and Wayne he might see them later, have fun.  Only SLK knows, come back to find out what evil or good lurks in the hearts of boys.

And now word from RSR,  Guys and Gals if you want the best motorcycle ever built, the kind that becomes legendary,yes a legend and a legend in its own time look no farther, go to your Yamaha dealer and ask for the Harley Slayer otherwise known as the Yamaha Star Raider, and settle for nothing less than the best, a Red one, and tell them Red Star Raider sent you, and he has the backing of SLK the owner of a Raven Raider.

Well I missed Thursday because the sight was down, Friday I did not make it home, I did not get back until very early this morning.  Went to bed then got up and started installing the BAK.  But here is the next episode.
     
When we last left Junebug he was with his new friends and just left a couple of his old friends and former gang members, who were now wondering  What was going on.  So Junior as he is now known by to his 2 new friends, and his new friends are at the River park enjoying themselves with a game of tag.  Meanwhile Bruce and Wayne have found Ricky and Bob and told them of the encounter at Workmans Grocery.  They were all a
upset and wondering what Junebug was up too.  Ricky assured them that his cousin would not be making any trouble for them if they would just go to him and apologize.  Yet Ricky was not so sure himself, he was just hoping that the family ties would be strong enough that he could get Junebug to rejoin them and take over as leader again, cause as a gang they were lousy with out leader, and none of them had what it took to  be their leader.   the 4 finally decided that it might just be best to give Junebug some room and time and if they ran into him they would play it cool and be friendly.  However, they did not know that there was going to an encounter so soon , for they then decided to go for a ride and then go to the River park.  As the got close to the park they saw Junebug with Jimmy and Mike. The 4 of them stopped and stared, they looked at each other, and Bob asked What do we do now?   Rick said well i guess we just go in and see what happens.  So in they went since the swings were empty they got on them, except for Ricky,  he went over to where the others were playing tag sat on the merry-go-round and half way watched and slowly pushed with one leg.  Junior called Jimmy and Mike over and asked them if they wanted to go or stay, they decided to stay.  How about we go on the merry-go-round then he suggested, and so they did.  Ricky said Hi guys, and the 3 returned the greeting, got on and started pushing.   Bruce, Wayne, and Bob stopped swinging and watched the 4 on the merry-go-round wondering what would happen next.

What is going to happen next?  What is Junebug up to?  Is a storm brewing?  Only SLK knows, come back to get the answers.

Hello all you readers, p know I am preaching to the choir, but if you want the very best cruiser there is just 2 words to remember the first is RED and the second is RAIDER. Go to your local Yamaha dealership and see one in person, b   ake a test ride unless you are ready to buy or are a masochist.

Sometimes I hate this Ipad, somewhere along the line it makes corrections I don't catch before posting so now I will correct the add.
 
Hello all you readers, I know I am preaching to the choir, but if you want the very best cruiser there is just 2 words to remember the 1st is RED the  2nd is RAIDER.  Go to your local Yamaha dealership and see one in person, but do not take a test ride unless you are ready to buy or are a masochist.

dont waste your gas Mr. T.  I mean seriously, he only has to travel a quarter of a mile in that Raven bike and you only have to travel 1,000 miles.  You will smoke him by at least 4 seconds.

vroom...vroom...

That's because the only time I ever see you is with your "sweetie" and I'd hate to embarrass you in front of her.  Besides we know she like my Red/Chrome better.   ;D

Boy oh boy the ego of these narcissistic red owners, the think the have have the prettiest bike, and I will give them that, red is the prettiest.  But they also think they have the most powerful and fastest, well they are close, black is the most powerful and fastest.  But they think that all that pretty and power applies to them too.  Hey guys take off the rose colored glasses and look in a mirror. ;D ;D ;D

When we last left Junebug/Junior he was on the merry-go-round with his new friends and his cousin.  Well, Ricky he said, how have things been going for the old gang. Ricky replied, Okay I guess, we have not had any adventures, Kenny has been avoiding us, and we spend most of our time in the back yard.  We don't know what to do or where to go.  We haven't played hide and seek since the gang fell apart.  Junior, are you going to be at uncle Franks four the 4th of July, Ricky asked.  Of course, Junior replied, you know my mom would never let us miss the family reunion.  Besides that, me and Max will kick your and Glennys butts at horseshoes and we have been taking lessons from our moms on how to play 500.  I bet that Max and I are getting good enough that we just might beat Auntie and Uncle Roy at the 500 tournament.  Ricky laughed, that would be the day, there ain't never been anybody that could beat granny and gramps at 500, not even my dad and aunt Iva who learned from them could ever beat them.  Well there ain't nobody who can't be beat and someday Max and Me will do it said Junior.  Mike and Jimmy had been listening wondering what might happen next and if they would like Ricky.  So it appears that the family tie is stronger than the problems caused by the gang falling apart.  Ricky and Junior are getting along pretty good.  Junior says to Ricky we are going over to Jimmys later and play with his real cool train set, maybe I will meet up with you later at the oak tree.    Ricky said hey can I come over and play with the trains too?   Mike looked at Jimmy and Jimmy said , since you're  Juniors cousin, sure.  Mike said let's go now, and the other 3 on the merry-go-round agreed and got on there bikes, Ricky told Bruce, Wayne and Bob that he was going with Junior and would see them later.  That left the 3 former gang members on their own with no idea of what to do next, or even where to go.  So they were left sitting on the swings wondering what had just happened and what did it mean.   In the mean time the new foursome made up of 2 members each from 2 former gangs were getting along and having a great time with the train set.  This is the coolest thing i have ever seen or played with said Ricky.  You got that right said Junior.  Mike said this is the best I have ever played with and I have played with a lot.  A little later Jimmys mom called him and said that everyone would have to go now cause Jimmys dad would soon be home and they were going to go to the Made Right Diner for supper.  So the 3 boys left giving thank yous for the time playing with the great train set.   As the 3 were splitting to go their own homes Junior said , hey Mike come to my place after supper and we will go over to Rickys and maybe play hide and seek.  Both Mike and Ricky agreed that that was a great idea. 

What was happening here?  Was this all part of some scheme Junior was cooking up or was it real friendships being forged?  What was going on with Bruce, Wayne, and Bob?  Only SLK knows come back for the next installment of Junebug/Juniors summer of 61.

now a simple word from our sponsor,   If you want one hot bike and want everyone to envy you, but don't want to pay the price of an expensive one off custom,  the answer is plane and simple  GET A RED RAIDER!!!

Just make sure you let me know when you come down so I can plan to be off work.

I'm going to try and get up there in May sometime to see a buddy of mine in NP who rides.  You were telling me about a road to some resturant that was a pretty good ride.  I'd like to check it out if we can make it work.

A smaller kawi.  Maybe a 650. He was just getting his license and the base has rules regarding 1st year riders having anything over a 750.  It's red, bags and a windshield.  (I know that narrows it down a bit haha)

When we last left Junior he had successfully managed to sepeate his cousin from the rest of the former gang and involve him in activities with his new friends.   As we rejoin them they have eaten their suppers, Ricky is lying under the oak tree chewing on a blade of grass waiting for Junior to show up with Mike and Jimmy.  As he is there chewing the blade of grass he is watching the clouds trying to see if he can spot any that may look like something.  he hears a voice say, whacha doin?  It is Bob, and Ricky replies I am watching the clouds and waiting for Junior, you should probably scram.  What for? questions Bob.  Well junior is going to show up with Mike and Jimmy and I don't know if it would be good for you to be here.  Just then they here Junior saying hi guys, how you doin?  I'm fine, says Ricky, how bout you Bob?  Bob doesn't know if he should run or stay, speek or be silent, he stands there looking and feeling dumb.  Finally junior says, yeah Bob, how you doin?  Bob stammers some and finally manages to say, oh I guess  I'm okay.    You only guess? asks Junior laughingly.  Maybe we should take you down to old Doc Sellers and have him give you a check up and a few pills and maybe a shot.  Ricky laughs and says yeah a shot in the butt.  Bob  starts laughing too, and says yeah I guess I could use a vitamin shot.  Junior says Mike and Jimmy should be here any time now go get your bikes and we can go riding until dark and then we can play Hide and Seek.    Bob asks, you want to play hide and seek?  Of course I do, says Junior.  Boy Junebug, says Bob,  I thought you were sore with me. 
I was for a while but I am over it, besides I have some new friends who are pretty keen guys, just ask Ricky if it aint so.  Ricky was feeling very relieved, his cousin was being real cool he was his friend again he had new friends and now Bob was being accepted into the new group if Mike and Jimmy would approve. Ricky says yeah they are real cool guys.  That was soon going to be confirmed or denied.  Bob ran to his house accross the street to get his bike and returned.  Junior went back to his house where he waited for Mike and Jimmy. A few minutes later the 2 showed up and with Junior in the lead rode over to the oak tree.  Mike and Jimmy stopped short when they saw Bob was there, they had not expected him and began to wonder what was up.

What was up?  What was going to happen next?  Would peace prevail or would trouble break out?  Come back for the next episode of Juniors summer of 61 and find out.

Guys I want you to spread the word to every one you know who is interested  in riding motorcycles, to go out and get a Raider, prefferably the real pretty Red one.  That way I can have something interesting to challenge cause Harleys are just to way easy to whoop up on.

Fast enough to catch up to a Red Raider when we are parked at a roadhouse having a beer and a burger.  After we have been there for about 45 minutes of course.  Lets not get all crazy thinking they could have caught up when we were just ordering our first beer.  I mean seriously, that would just be nuts.

Come on over guys said Junior.  So Mike and Jimmy slowly approached, as they got to the tree,  Junior spoke.  Hey guys this is my old friend Bob.  He would like to join us for a ride and for a game of hide of seek later.  Mike and Jimmy looked at each other then at Junior and over to Ricky.  Ricky had turned out to be okay and was a cousin to Junior, so why not accept Bob too was the reasoning now running through Mikes head.  He told Jimmy his thoughts and Jimmy said why not, it just that many more to have fun with.  Bob was now a bit leary but Junior said, good we are all friends what do you say we take a ride, go to the park for while and then come back and play some hide and seek.  One by one they all agreed it was great idea with Bob being the last.  So they got on their bikes and started off for a ride around the neighborhood, they soon found themselves on the road leading out to Old Man O'briens farm.  They soon found themselves stopping right next toh melon patch.  Bob got a bit jittery and said I want to get out of here now.  Junior said well lets to up to Creek and then turn around and head back to the park.  So that is what they did.  after a while they found themselves back at the park and having fun on the swings.  Suddenly Junior launched himself from the swing and hit the ground, he turned around and said, can anyone beat that distance.  Suddenly all the boys were leaping from the swings seeing who could go the farthest.  This went on for about half hour seeing who could bail out the farthest.  When all was said and done Jimmy had set the record for the farthest bail out.  Well, said Junior, time to go play hide and seek, I will be the first to be it.  So off they went to the tree and started a game of hide of seek.  After about an hour of hide and seek they heard Leila, (Bob's mom) calling him to come home.  So they all decided it was time to call it a night and they all headed for home, except for Junior who accompanied Mike and Jimmy as far as Jimmys house.  He said, you know guys I had a pretty nifty evening we will have to do this again in a few days.  Mike and Jimmy agreed.  Junior turned around and went back to his house.  When he got in his mom asked if he had had a good evening with rest of the boys.  He said he had had a great time.  He got ready for bed and then asked his mom if she could give a lesson in 500 cause the 4th of July was days away and he wanted to be in top form when they 500 tournement started. His mom said sure and so they played a coulple of double dummy hands and then Junior went to bed.  He slept good th
