I am not interested in brake lawsuits nor Jim's drinking (especially because last I knew, he was drinking gin & tonic to ward off any possible malaria attacks) but frankly I am hanging my head in shame a little bit about the continuing use of that word.... you know, cod-------. I mean, isn't that the stuff that a male cod provides to female..... I mean, this is a family forum, right? And is that not a 'bad word' to expose children to or even speak about in polite, mixed company? I would think that word would be at least an 'R' rated word, and depending on exactly what the cod were doi..... I mean, depending on where the cod------- ended up, would that not really carry an NC-17 rating?

Just sayin'.  Maybe you should look into that further Marty, you know, just be on the safe side?

Well if we can get away from V'Jim's drinking habits (as fascinating as that is) just for a minute.

I've done a little online research and I think I've found it, to both of you that are still interested ( :) ) here is a link.

You'll need to click on the links on that page for more info.

So, because he answered my PM and the info these links provide, I'm of the opinion that, although it maybe in vain on his part,
I don't think it's BS or... what was that wonderful word..OH yes..."codswallop". Your opinions may continue to differ.

I now return you to V'Jim's drinking...and what else?....Ducks..yes I think it was Ducks.

I think you're getting confused somewhere Brian.


Codswallop is a perfectly good family friendly word and not a euphemism for anything :)


https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=codswallop&oq=codswallop&aqs=chrome..69i57.3870j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8


Cod Roe is eggs whilst Cod Sperm is used to fertilise the eggs (if they're not being eaten as a delicacy that is)

And neither Roe nor Sperm are R rated words :)

I never had any doubt that someone is trying to make a lawsuit.  ANYONE can sue anyone for anything they want, and there are TONS of money-hungry law agencies that are constantly trying to find and whip up "class action suits."  Even on the rare occasion they go through with it, the consumers usually get almost nothing and lawyers get tons of money.  My assertion is that there is nothing TO this action because I do not believe there is any wide-spread problem in the first place.  Inotherwords, there is no substance, just someone trolling trying to find justification and gather people that have similar problems.  But the story doesn't make sense as presented and we know there is no systemic problem as described.  We know the bike too well and have gathered information from thousands of owners over many years.  Aside from MaMa Kawasaki (who of course wouldn't say anything) we would be the first to know if there were such problems.

So to me, it is very offensive to see drivel about [what is obviously an attempt at] class-action lawsuits because it implies there really is some widespread, horrible problem with the Concours, when I firmly believe there isn't.  People seeing such alarming verbiage will assume there must be some problem or something to this.

OK, I guess it is OK then. It is just when I hear 'cod' and 'swallow', my mind thinks up all kinds of euphemisms, visual imaging and so forth. And I have a young, impressionable kitten around here that I am trying to keep on the straight & narrow. It is not easy raising girls.....

No real opinion about ducks here. There is some kind of big, water- bird that seems to wander over from the pond across the street and leave amazingly big piles of what Mike would probably call 'soft- serve links' or some such thing, and after watching my neighbor slip on one of them, they appear to be as slipper as owl..... well, you know. But they are not ducks. Not sure what they are- I really do not know my water- birds very well at all. Probably just as well I do not hunt them- I would probably be trying for a mallard (whatever that is, specifically) and come home with a Cessna or something.

But I can tell ducks from seagulls and I know that because this one time, a banned camp, my father- in- law (not originally from around here, speaks with an accent and sometimes uses a word that is only close, not quite right) kept saying he wanted to eat outside, 'near the ducks'. Well, I am looking all around for ducks and do not see any so I ask again and he repeats, let's eat at one of those tables near the ducks. ?? We sit at a picnic table and break out chow and I just cannot stand it and so I ask 'where are the ducks'? He looks at me like I am from some other planet and says 'you cannot see them? There must be about a million of them all over the place!'. Ah, gotcha': his 'ducks' were seagulls. He also has the amusing language quirk of doubling up on his adjectives..... for example, nothing is ever 'small', it would instead be 'small, little', I guess as opposed to the 'small, gigantic' version. :-)  Not breaking the guy's chops, his English is actually excellent and he speaks a lot more languages than I do so it's all good.

Now, back ONTOPIC: Yes, I think we should sue ducks for bad hydraulics!

what sort of seagull was it ?

was it one of the flying rats aka a herring type gull or was it one of the more petite black headed type of seagull?
