The three big outfits all have sites that speak English, and Louis ships all over the world. polo has the best kids' gear and is the least pricey. I personally wear Gericke and love it. Futz around, you will find things. It is almost all true to size. I fit between a 36 and 38 in everything, see below me in my 38 Lady Air Coldblack IV summer combo with Dainese boots.

If the rallies I've been to are any indication, most of y'all need to lose some tonnage.

Think of it as free horsepower! There's a formula, but for every pound you lose, its like gaining X hp.

She normally travels sitting on my headlight behind my screen.
Yes, and that is one fine teeny-weeny polka dot bikini she's wearing.

Enjoy the trip!

Sort of.

The UK Franchise has gone bust but the DE parent company is doing fine (AFAIK) and there is rumor that the DE parent company is going to pick up what is left of the UK franchise network.

HG should still be available for a while yet.

I've never seen the Rune with saddlebags like this. I am not impressed.

I still like the front suspension though.

They are doing fine here in DE.... HQ is about five minutes from work, I am there once a month or so. Everything seems normal.

I've got a WR250X with Shinko 244's. It's like the TW200's big brother. I've done an indicated 92mph.

Ya know I've got a pretty good scale and I've weighed myself before and "after" yet there's no change.

How can this be? I mean a turd's gotta have some mass right?
