The Capital of the Confederacy. Something for everyone. Even KLR riders

http://www.965klr.com/

I let go of TV three or four years ago, and listen to commercial free satellite radio. I'm oblivious by choice as to what is going on out there. While in a dealership in Richmond, VA., I was compelled to listen to the obligatory background noise, commonly known as Elevator Music. The lead in to another set of classic tunes included the call letters for the station. I thought "I just mis-heard that". Nope. At the tail end of a Led Zeppelin III track, the DJ declared you could only hear it on W-K-L-R Richmond.

I wonder if my world is getting too narrow.

I quit physically paying for TV about 8 years ago, since I wasn't home to watch it.. So now I just pay for it mentally by watching airwave commercial TV. I might watch 2 hours worth, maybe 2 nights a week..

I quit Sirius Radio because of the price jump.. That was a year and a half ago, and I had a great time shooting the radio with an AR15.. It was an old clunker of a original receiver, and wasn't worth anything anyway..

I've now quit using the internet through electrical means, and instead have been doing this telepathically for about 4 months.. My spelling seems to be getting better, and I can do my email and web surfing while driving or riding..

The biggest issue with the telepathic web surfing is the porn and pop ups that happen while giving meetings.. Uncomfortable!! I know there's filters, but I'm not putting that manufactured stuff in my body.. It's a temple, you know..

BIKE NIGHT
It's a standard item for Quaker Steak and Lube... All of them have Wednesday night as bike night.. The one north of me in Madison, WI usually has a blues band, hottie waitresses, and beer specials..

It usually brings out some pretty cool bikes, with everything from Ural sidecars to "race" Honda Ruckus's, and everything in between.. KLR's are usually a hit.. It's like a bike show on every Wed. night.. There's even a few Harley's that are worth looking at..

I was in the South Richmond Harley Davidson dealership when I heard WKLR radio.

Quaker Steak and Lube Bike Night..... When the economy was on a run away, it was a good place to curb-sell a motorcycle. I haven't been to the Quaker Steak in Richmond. Good turn outs back in the day at the Fredericksburg, VA and Charleston, WV locations.

"WKLR?"

Next, perhaps, "WKLR-TV."

Whatever the programming, could hardly be lamer than that of "American Chopper," IMHO (Oh, dear! WILL the FedEx truck reach Orange County Choppers in time for the staff to bolt-on the outsourced gee-gaw for the MANDATORY deadline for completing the unrideable monstrosity?).

Or, maybe . . . "Whale Wars." Am I the ONLY viewer praying for a submarine torpedo attack on these hapless ideologues? Strafing run? Dive bomber attack? Amazing how these clowns are glamorized by media, as they illegally and dangerously interfere with the lawful livelihoods of the whalers, seeking to disable the whale fleet ships on the high seas, in dangerous Antarctic waters. These "Whale Wars" crew members are not unlike Somali pirates, IMHO; and . . . deserving of the same justice.

Whaling is perhaps the most highly-regulated, by international treaty, harveting of sea life in the WORLD; no threat of extinction or endangerment of any species exists. Plus . . . the poseurs aboard the "Sea Shepherd," the "Bob Barker," and other vessels in their pirate flotilla haven't prevented harvesting of even ONE whale . . .

The antics of the World's Fattest Vegan "Captain" and his cast of comedians serve only as a way to separate arm-chair "conservationsts" and "environmentalists" of their feel-good contributions to the misplaced and misguided, "Save the Whales!" cause.

I shall begin my own activist organization; "Save the Tuna!"

What? Tuna aren't CUTE enough to be saved?

Sounds financially prudent to me.

Its tough luring away the KLR 650 riders from the Mission Soup Kitchen. While Quaker Steak does have the Bikini Bike Wash Team, which is quite a draw, anybody that considers the KLR seductively attractive will find everything their looking for at the Soup Kitchen. Simply, Harley riders have different standards, and will pay for it. KLR riders won't pay. It would scare you to know how many members here participate with pirated internet. Getting your Average Joe KLR rider to pay double digit food checks for pickles to hang out with Pirates is not a business plan I see getting the thumbs up.

You might be the ONLY viewer wishing for that.. It's not nice to hope for such things.. I'm hoping the Whale crushes the black boat, and the idiots are eaten by other sea creatures after being run through the propeller of the whaling boat.

I've only watched the show a couple times, but I found myself cheering for the whalers, and wishing for a whale tail to slap them into next week.. Then again, I'm a jerk who works for a living, rather than getting paid to protest an issue..

Which brings us back to Madison, WI.. For some reason, protesters don't like being told to quit whining and get back to work..

Again, I'm a jerk.. And I admit it.. I've been a union member.. I have friends who are union members, AND they ride KLR's..

Excellent!

I'm thinking . . . these enviro-Nazi wannabe pirates are always trying to disable the propellors of the whaling ships, by fouling them with cables, special high-strength wire rope, etc., etc. WHAT IF, for once, the Save-the-Whalies are SUCCESSFUL in snagging a whale ship screw, but . . . a Save-the-Whalie (or two, or more) gets snagged in the line himself/themselves, and is pulled beneath the freezing Antarctic Ocean to his own . . . Wait, sorry!

[/violent revenge fantasies]

But, the World's Fattest Vegan "Captain" does tell his swabbies, "You must be willing to RISK YOUR LIVES to SAVE THE WHALES!" (As mentioned; ain't working; this crowd has yet to "save" a single whale; quotas are realized despite the activism.)

CLARIFICATION: While I jest, I wish no physical harm to anyone involved in the whaling, er, unpleasantness. May the protesters be as tolerant of and as sensitive to the needs of the human whalers, as they purport to be to those of the whales. May the protesters realize the whalers have a right to their legal livelihood harvesting whales without the reckless endangerment of the anti-whaling zealots.

NEWS FLASH FOR THE LATTER: Eskimos/Native Americans hunt and kill whales; LEGALLY. Why not stop them, in your little Zodiacs? I might even watch that program on a PAY-FOR-VIEW presenation!
