    Looks like you've already had it down the park for some unrestricted testing. How did it go?

    Love it. Looks like what I ride, but with 30 kg of steroids.

    Is it true that as soon as you rest on the saddle of one of those your testicles start to shrink?

    Just curious, how much extra would you have had to pay for a painted one, vs. primer only version :mrgreen:

    It's not true in the case of real men, but ladyboys have been reported to experience it. ;)

    No, that's what happens when you sit on a metric cruiser. Some owners add loud pipes in an attempt to stop the shrinkage but such efforts are invariably futile.

    Saw an episode on American Chopper last night where they customized a couple small scoots and then rode them from New York to Boston. One said riding them was like having sex and eating steak at the same time

    Saw it too....I am surprised they could find a seat big enough for Mike's big ass! I think I heard them say that with the mods they could get a max speed of 55mph.....sound right? :?:

    Nope, will give it a shot next weekend if the wife doesn't mind having a plate on her back.

    Should be heaps of fun. I'll bet a sprocket won't hit the ground if you get a flat either.

    Fortunately, copious application of chrome takes care of that problem. :mrgreen:
