Actually now that I think about it I may not have acted in accordance with the unwritten rules of the thread... that may be the one motorcycle posted right now on Craigslist that doesn't claim to be a cafe racer!

$3500? It does beat that monstrosity on the front porch-but no way that Kaw is worth 3500.It may have been before he chopped it up,but not now.bj

most of them are apparently. My ads are always well thought out and very thorough. Once in a while you find some good ads, like this BMW which I will be regretting not buying in a year...

I just hate people who act ghetto and use slang in general, besides for comedic value. Then they wonder why they are judged so heavily by upper classes of society.

And I don't want to hear some BS about how if they are raised in that environment they don't know any better; I have plenty of friends who grew up in the projects around some nasty gangs and they speak perfectly well. As well as that, they disassociate themselves from that lifestyle as much as possible.
