There is another way to get on the bike??

The only bike I could throw a leg over was my VF500f....before I raised the suspension and added knobbies.


Oh...and my Bianchi SportSX (not this one)

Nice bike. I always liked Bianchi's "mint chocolate chip" paint scheme.

Do you really want to turn this into an eastern vs. western hemisphere debate? I mean, this is already pretty stupid right now.

That being said, my ruling is: yes, he can use the right [western] half of the decal. I have decreed, and it shall be so.
