    Me too.

    Katie has unfortunately inherited my heat index. The kid cranks out heat like a furnace. The poor thing cracks a sweat drinking water. :cry

    EXCELLENT!

    Imagine the swoopy-est, weirdest 50's era scoot body with a severely tuned RZ motor in it. mmmmmMMMmmm :drif

    Obviously there would be...issues...with an RZ motor in this one, but imagine the fun if you could stuff a modern ruckus 50cc motor in it.

    Sacrilege, but still a fun thought.

    I sorta have a VERY unlady-like propensity for sweating like a damn Clydesdale in hot weather. :pissed At MSF classes I look like I'm about to have a heart attack--a nice lobster red with sweat pouring off me and my hair soaking wet. And I'm fine. I just look like I'm not. :bluduh

    Ooo, Max's Piatti!

    My buddy Jay commented "It looks like a cocktail frank with a toothpick sticking out of it." Might be an excellent Wienermobile for IlStupido down there in Memfix.

    If you can get the shift linkage to work, how about a nice ty250 engine?

    Oh, come on. I'll bet Jamie Elvidge would ride it. She's gutsy, that one.

    Grunty, but no lungs. It'd get off the corners in a cloud of tire smoke, and be running about 12mph wound tight to the 2500 RPM redline.

    Although, there's a guy out here that welds up the cylinder and then ports them like a modern bike... :scratch

    EAJ's- you're sick. :lol3
