    I want one of these so bad... If only they had a *bit* more power. 250, or heck, 300 would be golden for those of us unlucky urban schmucks who have to ride an hour+ out of the city in order to reach the dirty fun. :cry

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

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

    It's a total win. There's nothing like riding the dragon on a cushman to make all the part time badasses feel like they should have kerosene rags tied around their ankles. :lol3

    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.

    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?

    Crash handle. He doesn't have a guardian bell, so he needs to be prepared to throw it down.

    It is called gut memory. It is kinda like muscle memory. Your gut knows how much it is supposed to weigh and whatever you do, it remembers and will make itself heavier so it can stay at that weight.
