That little Honda outboard is likely the most valuable thing in the photo. Certainly the one least likely to fail on you.

Fact: 86% of men surveyed (and 3% of women) chose "motorboating" over riding a "hardtail".

That'd have to depend on the size, shape and texture of the Mae West compared to the hardness of the tail. If you can bounce ping-pong balls off the tail, I think I'd prefer a piece of tail.

I believe a scientific study may be in order.

The Dog Institute of Higher Stuff offers their assistance.
Will there be some form of Government grant money for this?

Just waiting on my assistant Britt to wake up so I can do some preliminary research.

This is what's great about living down here. As my friends on the forum can attest, I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, but down here I'm like a brain surgeon or a rocket scientist.

Ohh... Here he is again in the Barter section and he is willing to trade for a "sadan."

Why does every accessory that Harley makes look like it weighs 3-times more than it needs too?

On seeing that bike, daughter said "Yeah, that's not gay at all."

(not that there's anything wrong with that)

Then she said, "life is like a box of chocolates, it doesn't last long for fat people". But I think that was unrelated.
