    been there...done that
    boring :roll:

    try assembling a car...better fun :cool:
  3. what does this mean "aseembling a motorcycle from scratch" so the have to build the motor, frame, gauges, from the ground up? As i couldn't see anyone being able to do this quicker then locationg a building from a helicopter

    Or do they mean put rims, add spockets and a chain maybe front forks etc?
  4. Yeah I do it all the time :)
  5. I think you answered your own question :)
    The key being the use/difference of the words build and assemble
  6. sucks that only Americans can enter the The Amazing Race. :( :envy:

    struggling to think of any other advantage to US citizenship. :p
  7. yeah .... and how else are you supposed to clean your bike ??
  8. Easier questions and a bigger prize on "Who wants to be a Millionaire"

    (and no Eddie :LOL: )
  9. Bah assembling a motorcycle would be easy. Assembling a motorcycle that actually runs well on the other hand, now that would be more difficult (I don't think any Americans have managed that yet :p :LOL:).
  10. lol :grin: :grin:
