Yes. And while we are on the subject.

Brad, whatever happened to those old Vespar engines you were going to swap all those internals on? That was about a year ago wasn't it?

They're in a huge plastic bucket in my garage in baggies. Sort of on the list of things to do when I run out of stuff to do or when it gets cold again. I did get some new bearing and such for when I get around to it.

It's basically Richies old motor, a 2-port 125 gt engine.

Q)As for the cost, I think it's just what you want to pay. Would you rather drive a Ford Focus or a Mini?

A) A REAL MINI.


Q) It's kind of like that. We could probably all get by with used Vegas, but who would want to? 5-6k isn't out of line when you compare it to a Reflex, Burgman or Majesty.

A) Why would you want to ride a Lay-Z-Boy?

Q)The question is, what should I own for how I drive (commute from a second ring suburb to Minneapolis)?

A) Move closer to your work or work closer to your home.

Q)Should I own more than one?

A) Yes.

Q)How much is a certain style worth?

A) Style CANNOT be bought.

Q)Do I give a rats ass about how I look or what anyone else thinks?

A) Probably not.

Q)In a cost-benefit analysis what machine should I own?

A)A Bicycle.

Q)Should I just get what trips my trigger, to hell with everything else?

A) Why do it any other way?

Hey Matt, I'm driving home today and what pulls up next to me on a Central, a guy on a Ninja 250.

Must be some sort of wacky Karma.
