2. I live in Spain where that's considered a totally valid primary mode...
...of transportation. Seriously, you'll see entire families on them- with groceries.

6. I was hoping you were around the lounge today, Matcom. It's a used 2004.
Also quite red. The test ride was a blast. Now I just need one of them licenses.

8. watch out for the leaves!
those wet leaves are slippery as hell and many experienced bikers have wiped out on em.
caution first,caution last, caution always.


Have Fun!

13. Aren't those things fast?
I thought I saw one on the freeway passing us and we were going 70. It was a scooter (flat deck).

How much?

14. A Reflex should do 70/75 or so.
I think the rap on them is that they're a little light and at high speeds get battered in cross winds.
