    :rolleyes

    Well, massive, obviously. Biggest listed size is 3XL/4XL which would do nicely...

    BUT

    This is an Olympia "Nova" jacket, and the current model is the "Nova 2", so what I won was likely left over end of line stock, he's unlikely to want it back. Nothing wrong with that at all, a door prize is a door prize, and it's new and in good nick.

    So don't worry unduly, if he would rather not have it back, I'll sell it via the classifieds etc, no big deal. Winning stuff is cool.

    If I am unable to sell it, it might magically become a door prize at some other event.

    Or a gift for a good looking lady motorcyclist, and score me some browine points. Hey - that's not a bad idea.

    Nice to see you found a picture of the squirrels of Texas! That is why we use 7mm mag rifles to harvest them!

    The squirrels in Wisconsin say "....someone say Tex was in the woods?" "HIDE!"

    No, it's true. Nobody talked to Paper, and nobody wanted to ride the Helix either. Wezul refused because he said he didn't want to put on the dress. Damn Vespa snobs!

    I have the same issue with the BMW C as I did with the Helix, 15-20 years ago.. The price. :eek1 (I'm also a KLR rider):lol3

    I think the C's are beautiful, but I think if I ever decide to go to a MaxiScooter, it'll be a Silverwing.

    Truthfully, the Helix does everything I want it to do.. It's fast enough to get a speeding ticket, as I've got mine set up, it hauls enough to attend a rally in comfort, it makes me smile and it makes others look at it with that confused dog look. :lol3

    And that makes me smile even more.. :D

    I like it, and when I can't ride a real motorcycle anymore, I'll get one.
    :lol3
    Just kidding Dan, it looked fun. As Eric says, "small bikes are great because you can ride full throttle all the time."

    This spring I went riding with Sideshow, Double A, and Bill, and all three were on 1100, 1150, and 1200 BMW's.. and I was on the Helix.. It was just that, all day long. WFO:lol3

    But, little bikes also make you appreciate maintaining momentum into corners, not touching brakes unless needed, and smoother riding.. If you don't, they leave you on the side of the road, crying and wiping tears with the bottom of your dress.. :rofl

    Jeebus, the rally is over already. It's time to move on to pining for the next rally.

    Where is the next rally, anyway?
