If its that cold, why not wear a FF helmet?! (I'm assuming he built it to ride in the cold despite the short sleeves he has on now)

Why are there so many bikes on that road?
Why did I waste ONE Minute THIRTY EIGHT seconds of my life on that?

IDK either, but it happens. I've gone to pass cars on the moto and had em try to 'race' me.

It's a testosterone thingie. Goes with the territory.

Passing a Cruiser on a bicycle is hilarious, on anything else, not so much.

I do.
My current ride (Black KTM 950 is know as the tie-fighter, the silver R1150GS was the Millenium Falcon, the old copper colored R75/6 was the land speeder, the orange '97 F650 was the X-wing.)
I'm saving my pennies for the Tardis now.
