Actually I like the Nakeds! I think the Bking is awsome, I wouldnt even change the pipes, I'd just gut em and give it a Bazzaz pc and custom map it.

Also I have a customer with a White 08 Z1000r with a full akro and it looks so nice, and runs too.

Like the response to Caesar's "Et tu, Brute" I have to reply "Yeah, me too!"

Tried my friend Mark Zack's Z1000 on for size. Fit the Giggling Idiot in me perfectly. Like a Locomotive. I figured it would flatten my wallet both Monetarily and Officially, with a licensectomy.................

These historians often focused on the social background and status of their subjects, and the narratives they have written share a common outlook. [6]

Mugwumps tended to come from old Protestant families of New York and New England, and often from inherited wealth. They belonged to or identified with the emerging business and professional elite, and were often members of the most exclusive clubs. Yet they felt threatened by the rise of machine politics, one aspect of which was the spoils system, and by the rising power of immigrants in American society
I prefer, at the least, the definition from the 1947 OED. Or the old radio show or the reference to Native Americans...

Illegitimate at birth, lower middle class, North American mongrel, before cheese it was powdered milk and oatmeal

I just wouldn't want anyone getting the wrong idea and asking for some grey poupon or anything like that.
