Any of you FFs going up with Richard Branson and Virgin Galactic? Costs more than a new Harley and BMW combined X 4.

Wow, I wondered if that was Mr. McQ. The video brought a tear to myne ole eye. I miss the high power and low weight of a two stroke.

My first motorcycle: 1969

One of my friends in Florida has an Elsinore and used to race it. He let me ride it one day, but I was real careful. He got on it and did wheelies all around the sand street neighborhood.
