    The second shot above is great. An air of innocence, yet still wearing ATGATT, if vintage version of it.

    Steve - No harm, no foul. We're good. My sis was "what does colon, apostrophe, back slash mean?" I just told her to put her left ear on her shoulder and look at it again. At least we have emoticons on the forum, eh?

    Humor is a good thing. Just sometimes misses the mark on the internet.

    "Humor is a good thing. Just sometimes misses the mark on the internet."

    It's amazing how much stuff gets misunderstood and misconstrued online when there is no opportunity to hear voice inflection or see facial expressions. Hell, I have a feeling most of us would get along if we were to actually meet, have some lunch and ride some gravel.:freaky

    I have a feeling she can park anywhere she likes. 'Cause she's "a mean motor scooter and a bad go getter".

    Who remembers where that quote is from? :D

    That is one seriously nice-looking bike. I see Vincent on the tank, but I'm not terribly knowledgeable about bikes older than about 1965 - can anyone enlighten me as to the model?

    I can't help other than to say you are correct, it is a Vincent. I personally feel the Vincent twin is the most beautiful motorcycle engine ever built. If I ever wind Lotto, I'll have one.

    It appears to be a Black Lightning, which was the factory built racer. The pipes and carburetors are correct. The gas tank is interesting, I've never seen one like it. I suspect that it was for a long distance event, maybe the Manx GP that was held in the fall for amateur riders.

    Drag racing or top speed run? Didn't notice that before.
