I find panties more interesting to collect than notching the bedpost. Every sniff brings back a different memory, er, mammory.

Actually the VIN is in Chinese characters. The 17 characters actually say" Why would you think we would have a legitimate VIN when we pirate everything in the world? You running American dog!"

Once his tailor took in the front, like a glove.

Who says he's American? Or even not Chinese? Or even a he? After all, she's living in China. Maybe she's Chinese.

Thanks for everyone's feedback. Some useful background:



I am in fact an American male, living and working here for the last 8 years. The bike in question was almost certainly made in Japan - hence all the Japanese-language stickers on the frame. Definitely not of Chinese make - I'm well aware of the local scene concerning the poor quality of rip-offs, and the Chinese don't make this one. In fact, it's technically illegal (I mean the engine, at 250 cc, is too large for China!). I'll use the frame number and see what I can come up with - although I made a big mistake before and said "Shadow", when in fact it's a "Magna". Sorry about that. I should know better - not a novice, riding for 25 years.
