Clearly a fail - those red shoes clash with the pink scooter!

Strange thing about the blinding light.

A buddy has that set up on a similar bike. When down the road in front of him, the light really doesn't have much presence at all during the day. It is just a dim small spot without much notice. During the day for attention, he really has to have the light on bright. Not the best situation but it is very little attention or a bit dazzling attention. It was never bad to have him showing the bright in the mirrors,

That could be a wild and unfair guess. I don't see anything that looks like a milk crate on the 'Busa.

It's hanging from a ratchet strap over the other muffler.

I am not sure why people had to be so harsh, she was wrong for sure, but she seemed like a sweet woman.

I didn't see the harshness, either. She was dead wrong in her advice, etc, but her reaction here was not obnoxious enough for a dogpile.

Unless, of course, LN was not the lady on the vids, but actually looked like this:

...
I thnk her comment about wishing something bad, like our wives and daughters being raped, was her first mistake?

She's still spreading the word about how bad this place is so I don't think it's over just yet.

Umm, it was in her first post. She came out swinging and it was downhill from there.
