"His bike, a 2005 Suzuki, was impounded at the scene".

Those Suzukis are just too fast- they should be seized and destroyed, the lot of them.

We'll start with DAKEZ's.

Here is my opportunity to ask...where did the term 205 come from? I think it means you repeated a previous post. I tried he Google, but she was no help.

The story was repeatedly posted so many times that "205" came to be used as "that's been posted before, ad nauseum".
