    Maybe don't try for the cop shop in that town... they don't cotton to strangers in town much. :huh

    Due to a serious lack of either a 1'st hand or 2'nd hand market for two wheeled transport on island (our population is still going down) my only viable option for a bike, as yet, is this little 2 stroke 50 CC Korean rig, which I just purchased and am very very very happy to be adventuring on.

    After de-regulating it after work this week on the kitchen floor inside my second floor apartment I can make whopping top speed of about 40 mph. Cruising for a bruising on this beast. :deal

    Took it off-road last weekend, down the muddy trails, over the big boulders, down a cliff, and onto hidden beach sands. Got the trip on video with my helmet mounted go-pro. Will be posting the vid as soon as I post-process.

    Who says Scooters can't go everywhere? Only issue I had was ground clearance. Had to lift the little beast over some obstacles.

    I turned down the plated YZ450F I was looking at after the owner couldn't give me specifics about its maintenance or whether it had been submerged on the trail. That bike was a true monster. In the states it woulda been a no-brainer - ideal performance enduro that with a little bit of work could have made a serious distance dirt traveler and Ralleye bike. I hear that Cyril Depres is going to be riding a YZ450F in this years Dakar.

    Here, with no tools and no covered workspace, it was too much of a maintenance gamble and without knowing the history of the bike I let it go. Woulda' sucked to have to tear down the engine in my living room for an unknown maintenance issue right after I bought it.

    So 50CCs it is for me right now, the two-wheeled tagging terror of Saipan.

    This inmate is glad to be riding again. Glad to be taggin' again. Glad to be adventuring again.

    :lol3

    And for fun, the public utilities of Düsseldorf want to ice cube you.

    I'm leaving for a week on the bike. I hope that tag is good, if so, here's the next one:

    A statue or memorial with a car in it. This one is in Remagen, Germany, for Rudolph Carraciola.

    This has sat long enough. I'm hoping my pic works.

    We don't have any "car" memorials here but we do have two with tanks. This is one - Type 97 Japanese tank on a pillbox next to the ocean on the Beach Road greenway.

    Assuming that's good - find me something completely gawdy and out of place.

    Here's Egypt in the South Pacific.

    I'll take the tank. It represents something that moves under its own power. :-)

    Hmmm. Gaudy AND out of place? Have to work on that.....

    Define out of place... I could go to Las Vegas and take a picture of any number of things, including a pyramid, but it's Vegas! Gaudy is natural there. :rofl

    Definitely gawdy. Out of place kind of goes along with that but in Vegas, as you pointed out, gawdy is normal. If whatever you get is over the top, it's good enough for me.
