    Nothin' better than following that loud pipe swervin sonofabitch through traffic. I like carving a line through for another rider, that's worth a wave.

    Every two-wheel contraption I own is a hooptie. Street Triple? Look at the chicken strips. Far more capable than its rider. Sportster? 120 spokes(!) on a 21" front wheel and a solid wheel on the rear. Every Harley is a hooptie anyway. R1100R? An old "premium" brand machine with more money in farkles than the thing's worth. And every one has a proactive life-saving exhaust. Hooptie is not a slur, it's a badge.

    Okay, so out of my 2009 super sherpa, my 2008 Toyota Yaris RS, my 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe, and i guess...my 2006 John Deere X304 tractor, which one of those is a hooptie in your line of thinking?

    This is a Donk. A hooptie is a POS. Donks are hoopties, but not all hoopties are Donks. A hooptie can be any POS.

    The Super Sherpa would probably qualify, just because it's super. Never been to Nova Scotia, real hoopties may not withstand climate or LEO considerations. You'll have to color outside the lines to earn your badge, how about a jigsaw convertible top on the Yaris? Or a chrome fishtail exhaust on the John Deere? Either, though not getting a second glance in a more temperate clime, would garner regional hooptie status.

    Gotcha loud and clear. I wanted snowplowing lights, as I often clear the driveway at night, or early in the morning. Basically, I just wanted to see the ground when it is dark... I got green ones...

    Does Having neon green underglow on a garden tractor qualify as colouring outside the lines enough for ya?
