Adam is bringing up the HOV lanes and what people should be able to do when there is nobody behind you on the road, the spirit of the law instead of the letter of the law.


Adam wants to claim our streets back from the Nazi cops of L.A. and wants an end to the hero bullshit.


2nd Caller John, he’s bringing up the “Star Wars” set discussion from last week, he’s bringing up his fandom of Adam and wondering what that means.

Adam is commenting on a clip of Dave successfully pulling off the tricks on an outdoor attempt where he pulled it off.

Adam wants to know why pegs are on a bike that is not being used for freestyle maneuvers, he’s saying that when people say “Adam you’re smart” the reality is everyone else is dumb.


Adam explains that the show went to series with John Schneider in place of John Ritter, he was told they want to keep him on for the SAG minimum and only wanted to pay him 311$ an episode.
