Hey, very clever Dereck, but as a bike fan myself I'd say the katana is no match for the Hayabusa...damn that bike is fast




Agreed. 1300 cc's and if a turbo ... out of this world.




Honda R1 At the Sturgess Power output competition a few years back, a tuned R1 became the first motorbike to produce 500BHP at the rear wheel!

I am also a lifelong, unapologetic devotee of the magnificent Yamaha V-Max. I dont care that it didnt go round corners, it was big and shiny, and with a cosworth tune would kick out 163 BHP in a road legal bike.

While I am an ardent fan of anything fast and lethal
- particularly horses, bikes and exotic cars, this is getting a bit off topic guys.

Can you try to keep at least some martial art weapons in the thread!

Hint: 101 uses for a fast bike as a weapon... I dont want to have to close the thread

A quantum singularity - a black hole. The ultimate weapon.

If you could manage to control and move one near to a planet it would utterly destroy anything and everything within a hundred million miles long before any effective response could be brought to bear.

As long as people are using Time & Quantum Singularity as weapons, I don't see why we Bikers can't control Time & Black Holes w/ our magnificent 2-wheeled weapons! YeeHa!

Jump on your horse & catch me w/ your pointy stick if you can!

LOL

The "pointy sticks" are quite good weapons actually.

At our recent jousting and skill at arms grading we had to do some spear work which was *interesting* as I only got a chance to do a couple of weeks practice beforehand and hadn't used a spear before. Thank goodness for all the bo work I've done, the spear felt ok to handle and was shorter & lighter than my bo but nose heavy due to the steel tip.

The guys soon learnt that I was a better shot than them when we had to gallop at a target on a hay bale and throw the spears at it. They either missed the hay bale altogether or got the very bottom of it, way off the target.

I hit the target in the bullseye! There was a stunned silence and their jaws all dropped to the ground.

So never underestimate someone on a galloping horse wielding a "pointy stick", it may be the last thing you see!

But...it isn't the weapon that is great..it's the thrower.

Ben

I posit a close second as "weaponizing" a quasar.

The effect of being able to focus the entire energy output of million or more suns every few seconds----well makes the "Death Star" look like a childs toy.
