I'm not sure if I've got this photo thing figured out, but here is my new Fatboy - that's right a 1987 250cc Honda Helix:

Note the manly purse.

That is a mean machine. What'll she do? 60-65?

I knew you were circling like a vulture waiting for this photo. I've pushed that bad boy to about 70, but it makes some unpleasant sounds at that high speed - possibly b/c I"m approaching mach 1 without the proper modifications.

You can see the guy I got it from "customized" it with the ghetto-wired speakers and motorcylce back rest. The milk crate is pretty much standard issue.

I got the model that would allow my knees to pretty much bash the handlbars, too.

It's gonna be a great summer! :)

Nice ride. It gets, what, 80 mpg?

Ha! I've heard the Tom Greene thing many times. Back in the 80's I got called Agent Cooper a lot (Twin Peaks).

Yeah, I'm getting about 60mpg and filling up my two gallon tank every two weeks or so for about $4. At this rate, it pays for itself in about three years. :(
