'bout 5'7", 29 or 30" inseam.

'02 Tiger 955i

A tad tall, but just a joy when it's moving. My (previous) Sprint ST and other rides are all easier when I have to put my legs down, but the Tigger is the daily mule.

A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government.

An association of men who will not quarrel with one another is a thing which has never yet existed, from the greatest confederacy of nations down to a town meeting or a vestry.
