Definitely going to the USS Alabama, that's just too cool to pass up. Birmingham is probably out, I used to live just south of there, but everyone I knew has moved away. And I can't believe I forgot...

My '85 xr600 has a big bore kit, bringing it to 660. If it doesn't start on the first 3 kicks I just roll it down the street and pop it. I think the hardest part is its so damn tall.
