Levels of Stupid


This snazzy advertisement from J&P Cycles appeared in my inbox this morning. One one level, I wanted to write something about how incredibly inappropriate it is to be loading up your hippobike with alcohol advertisements. On another level, I sort of hit the limits on my patience for human, especially American, stupidity. If you follow the link, you'll find all sorts of cheap chrome crap with which you can decorate your cheap chrome crap Harley or yourself.

Why decorating yourself with stuff like this wouldn't be justification for pulling over a rider for a blood alcohol test, any time of the day, beats me. I would even be good with "putting a couple of warning shots into the head, as a warning," as my father used to say.

  1. Crazy isn't it? Why would a bike manufacturer with any sort of conscience even think of joining transport and booze at the hip?

    Yet Indian seem to think the concept is good: https://www.indianmotorcycle.com/en-us/jack-daniels/

    1. If anything makes you think it's a dying industry, stupid crap like this tops the list.
