Reminds me of when I first started flying straight wing Citations (many years ago). The Lear Jet guys used to laugh about us getting bird strikes from the rear. The Citation X changed all of that for me several years ago.

Default I've got a couple

How about, "PinkerBell"

Or, "Swish"

And a comment in keeping with the theme of #84, "the box says I can swim, hike and ride my Vespa."

Last weekend, Doug was telling me how much interest the scooter generates on the trips with Tate back and forth to school. He said he gets so many questions he is tempted to put the answers on his clothes. Mileage, price, etc.

What I didn't realize until tonight is just how leading edge Doug is. I guess I haven't seen enough of the shows to be current so it was interesting that the Teutuls displayed this scooter on Letterman.

Hopefully things won't get carried away during the refurb.

That's me....Mr. Trendsetter .

Slightly related, this guy has some pretty good scooter pictures in his blog. Kinda like how folks fly their RV someplace and take a picture of it there...

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Larry!
