I dunno. If you let it play out it'll give you the option of inserting your own mug.

BTW, the latest issue of Motorcyclist magazine has a special focus on cafe racers. Best issue in years. And this after Boehm leaves... coincidence?

The 70's? What were those? I seem to lose track when Hendrix died and then it starts up again with the Police and Oingo Boingo. I seem to have a recurring nightmare that includes a very unlikely craprock band named Foreigner and a lot of butterfly collars.... but I doubt that that could really have happened. Must be an hallucination.

This is TON of bollocks. It represents how your ass feels when doing 100+ on a classic cafe racer. That is... like a ton.

Yep I saw it. I agree with your comments about Motorcyclist.... In general I think Bike (UK) is the best mag I have seen. I used to get it. The American rags seem like tabloids. The UK mags have better photography, writing, print quality, etc.
