Was I wrong
« on: August 10, 2012, 09:12:54 pm »
We just stayed at the Bridge Bay campground in Yellowstone on the lake - nice campground, more on that later - as I pulled to the dump site there were two German RVs at the dump. They had German plates and were models on the MB chassis we saw in europe.

Both vehicles had liquid flowing out of the side of their vehicles - probably 20 gallons or so each. It was just flowing on the drive and a some flowd to the dump input, but not much. I asked if that was grey water , they said "yes grey water". I told them you can't do-- letting it just flow on the road-- that they gave me the universal index finger sign. We then exchanged some insights on each others parentage and they drove off leaving me to wade through the mess they left.

Has anyone else experienced this?

experienced what?
German pushy attitude
RVs with Euro plates
Those who dump nearly into "the hole"
Those who seem to use the slope of rinse area - i dont know what else to call it - apron? to drain into

-so far all answers are yes for me-
 
just keep quiet & take pictures = better agrieveational (i just made it up) response than fingers = as in i am aggrieved you just did that - higher on scale than 'less than gruntled' & your blood pressure doesn't go so far up
   oh, taking pics of stupid road apple things cretins do saved for future campfire time

tell a Ranger
good luck

Much better!    :lol.   What are u riding?   When I started riding it was an AJ (I think), then a tiger cub, Honda shadow, the last was a vw converted into a 3 wheel trike. Built the trike from an old vw, even built my extended front forks. Oh well it was fun. Have a good day, billy

I was/am on a Piaggio mp3-400.  We took her to NH PC-IV get together last fall & that pic was taken near Mt Washington.

Billy,
I think you mean an AJS, a big 500 (498cc) Thumper with a compression release that was needed because the compression was so high. The Tiger Cub was a 200cc Triumph Thumper.
Had both, a 600cc Norton Manxman (Dominator 99 series), 650cc Triumph Bonneville, a 650cc BSA Road Rocket, 750cc Norton Atlas, 850cc Norton Commando, 850cc Norton John Player Special, 500cc Norton Manx DOHC Thumper, 750cc Matchless, 250cc Greeves Griffith, 1000cc Ariel Square 4, a 998cc Vincent Rapide and a 1000cc JAP. They all, except for the Greeves 2 cycle, leaked.

Not to mention the Japanese, German, Swedish and Spanish bikes I also raced later.
Carry on, regardless..................

Yep, BSA made 500cc Goldstars and Victors. Very fast for their type and day. They leaked too.
