Random Thought

Here’s a random thought from a motorcyclist and dog fan.

This is a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14. It is one of the most powerful production motorcycles in the world, with a top speed electronically limited to 187 MPH. It will do 0-60 in 2.4 seconds and will run the 1/4 mile in under 10 seconds in stock form. It is a roaring, snorting beast of a machine. I have been riding motorcycles for 15 years and wouldn’t dream of owning one; the bike is simply too powerful for my skillset.

This is Chula. Chula doesn’t like it when a person tries to take away her food. She will give very clear and early warnings, but if a person insists on taking away her food, she may try to bite them.

An 18-year old with a motorcycle license still warm from the printer may purchase a ZX-14, but there are shelters in the US who would execute Chula on the basis of liability.

What am I missing?

  • I think this is a great point. Cars, motorcycles, guns, dogs – heck, anything – can all be dangerous in the wrong hands. That doesn’t mean any of them should be banned just because a minority of the people are irresponsible.
