So, how many of you have model bikes at your workspaces?

At home, at work, .... on your tool box in your garage, or shop? etc.

I have one at home in my bedroom, one on my desk at work, and mouse has a few on the entertainment center. lol

I have the blue/yellow 06, 1000rr at work, and I have a die cast promo model bike, and I dont know what kind it is at home. It has all kinds of sponsor stickers on it too like avon tires. lol I'll have to post a pic of it so you can help me identify what the heck it is.
