    If this bike cannot transport me back in time so I can make out with Christina Penna at summer camp again, I ain't interested. :1drink

    You too? She was awesome.

    It will. You will just have to adjust the dovin basal fields in a manner that allows the gravitrons to escape without burning the quantum foam.

    It's in the manual between "Achieving World Peace" and "Ending Suffering."

    Gonna need a more serious skid plate when she hits about 75% light-speed.

    The shock wave rolling out ahead of the bike will take care of obstructions bigger than a small marble.

    the skid plate actually projects into the next dimension in front of the bike.

    The instructions to that feature are in the manual between "Ending Hunger" and "How to Appear Like You are Listening When You are Thinking of Riding"

    Good eye on BTC - funny no one else noticed it, eh?

    Re: the pizza, one of the problems with this bike is that the vacuum caused by the vortex of its passing occasionaly sucks items out of black holes. In this case it was a pizza, but hopefully many of us will get back useful items such as missing socks, lost keys, etc.

    Thats true, but it will also make pizza for you while riding so its ready when you stop, along with your favourite beer. Yes it does know what your favourite beer is. (If you don't drink beer, don't buy this bike - it doesn't like sissies or big girls blouses).

    Care will need to be taken when riding over 75mph as this bike bends light.

    Cloaking or stealth devices are optional extras and really just toys.

    Agreed, the cast wheel type and lack of a front beak on the high part of the fender...plus the low riding front fender currently shown.

    Just spoke with my dealer.....he said the seat is made of reclaimed vintage 80's naugahyde. It automatically cleanses rusty hatchet wounds from third world chickens so you can truly have a real adventure south of the border. Also cleanses your trouser trout sauteed in all day at work sauce - that way you arrive fresh from your commute should you be limited to urban adventuring. Its a fact - my dealers knows someone.....hes taking deposits......

    No breaking news today - yet. Hearing some rumors that the black UN helicopters presaging world dominion are now going to be painted the same colors as the new Triumph Tiger 800 DS, but I haven't confirmed that yet. Stay tuned.

    That bike will do the Kessel Run in like 11 parsecs. It ain't like dustin' crops, boy.
