Ok the truth is I'm a weird fat guy on a weird fat very old bike(she's 23!)...let's face it the tengai has an odd fairing lol that is brittle as hell...just more incentive not to crash! Can't complain though she carries me to work and back any day and now she's good off road...god my back appreciates that!

I worked at a Kaw dealership back when those came out. We used to joke that they took "ten guys" to pick'em up so hence the name.

Compufreek. Do you do any local riding in South County (if so don't annouce it, but PM me)?
Is this the start of a secret So. County riding club? If so, I want in. If not I want in.

I like those Transalps, they look like my bikes Honda cousin. I would like to get my hands on an Africa Twin, really like that fairing. Wonder how much flak I would catch for modding mine to run two rounds lights lol
