Some ATM camera or something.

For the love of god don't let us down.

Glad you're fine, and good luck but make sure everything is fixed on the bike.

What the hell does los angeles need a lawnmower for, especially a big ass freaking lawnmower?

I mean ok there has to be grass somewhere, but do they need something that big? I'm sure they could get away with using the simple push kind

yeha RIGHT! the last time the GS was hit, I didnt even go down and they totaled it. I had to buy it back and they were telling me it was going to have a salvage title etc etc but I managed to get them to NO salvage it. I think they only gave me $5K for it
