Is there anything that you could name that you thought of yourself? I can't think of even one.

Well actually how it came about was our General Manager wanted to promote a fifty race for advertisment purposes for employees and customers. So he took 20 new CRF50's(not a moped) and had the service dept install scooter tires. Great way to get hurt if you dont know what your doing. After dragging the kickstands and pegs for about 6months everyday after work we put them on our used lot and sold them all.

Besides its a proven fact that most profesional roadracers at one time or another practice sliding on CRF100's in the dirt and on the pavement.

Riding any bike doesn't suck unless you crash.

Fresh riding experiences are usually interesting at the least, invigorating at best. While I had more excitement on Monday at Willow, I still had a good time riding the Fury around Carlsbad. Ride report tomorrow.

Good idea! Excellent. You know, it might be better and it would definitely be cheaper, in that case, if we took up a collection and gave a WR250x, a Ninja250R and a Bonneville to KPaul, Barack, Hillary, Reid, Bush, Madonna, Sean Penn........

Put me down for twenny bucks. Hell, I'd even donate twenny each, if you could get them to sign a contract agreeing never to speak in public again. Including teh Internets.

Looking forward to the write-up. Unlike other posters, I am not a Fury hater. Honda has (had) a knack of taking cool things, and making them accessible to Joe Q. Public.

If I could take the irony in that sentence and put it in a bottle and sell it! Oh my God!

I'd say riding a fake chopper will come pretty damned close though. I guess the hard part is telling everyone how really cool it is with a straight face.

The irony of a mass-produced "custom" is not lost on me. I left out the phrase "making them instantly uncool." It was implied.

C'mon LR, you should know better.
