    Very nice write up and quite possibly the coolest small bike I've ever seen, thanks for sharing.

    You have done the seemingly impossible: single-handedly erased my childhood-memory associations of Vacaville and the stench of the stockyards. :)

    Absolutely beautiful shots!

    Ha! Where did you live? Vacaville is mostly known for its orchards and field crops, but there's definitely a lot of cattle ranching around. No cattle feed lots though.

    I'm up in Idaho but was born in Visalia and grew up in the Central Valley and Bay Area. That was forever ago (60s thru early 80s) and it's highly likely my old brain is conflating wherever those stockyards actually were -- really thought it was where 505 and 80 meet -- with the "vaca" name.

    What I was gonna write, and what I shoulda written, is that it's 23 degrees, gray, cold and nasty up here and dayum those green ol' CA hills of home are looking mighty good. Especially with that little bike.

    Great bike! I had a Honda MB5 once that was a blast. You could be riding the wheels off it and nobody would notice and would do 50 mph on level ground. Small is more fun.

    I agree about small bikes. This little rascal is crazy fun to ride, and what it lacks in miles-per-hour it more than makes up for in smiles-per-hour. I'd love to come across an MB5!
