Since everyone has been asking I'd thought I would post a picture of me on my crotch rocket. As you can already see (below) the girls are really loving it. I don't mind being a geek if it saves me money. She tops out at about 43 miles an hour after mods with a tail wind (hurricane force) and going down hill. It takes me 20 min to get to work and I take 88th most of the way (less traffic). I already have 651 miles on it and I do truly enjoy riding it. I also have a kick butt helmet as you can see...it's flat black with a skull on the back of it. So far I have had one motorcycler wave at me---he must have felt bad for me.
