Looks like fun there

We all undertake a modicum of risk everytime we thumb the starter-it's just inherent to the sport.

Not me! My blue veins run strong. Yamaha and Husky!

What is this Bug what did you start? He doesn't even have a Supermoto. That would be like saying some dude with an R1 got me to buy my YZ250 Love the bike Bug but get you a thumper and have some fun. You know you want to.

I wish I was pimp enough for that, but to maintain the multiple toys I must continue to let other people eat the depreciation.
