+1... had the very same thought.

Wouldn't that be a visual oxymoron?

Possible shop name: "Commando Lingerie"

P.S. You could give the misses an empty "Commando Lingerie" gift box for Valentine's Day and be totally justified.

Well, Juni hasn't posted in this thread yet so there are three possibles reasons why:

1. He attempted to liberate the Norton and was attacked by hipsters. He couldn't stand their strange facial hair and bailed.

2. He got the bike out of the boutique but couldn't get it kicked over and left it.

3. He got the bike and is on his way to Vegas with a Denver hippie riding pillion.

Juni just doesn't seem like a guy who would commit a crime even it is for "freeing" a Commando. I hope he didn't get caught in the act by the owner and is now "sleeping with the fishes."

I like the "bite" line.

I have no idea what the survival rate of the old "stock" English bikes are, but I'd say it's about 50/50 here in the States that the motors at least are in bobber and choppers. At least that's sort of the Craigslist split on the old iron.

No. 3. It was a bit cold going over the Rockies, but well worth it. It took a dozen kicks to get her going and I think I fractured my leg on kick no. 8.
