That's what I've been saying all along, if you actually look at the bike from different angles it's pretty cool looking, and they're built like a brick sh*thouse

Note to self: when visiting Everglades Park be sure to check the drinking water for LSD.

I find it REALLY ugly no matter which way I look at it. If I happened to be trapped under one, I would gnaw my arm off to be able to crawl away from that thing. Yeeesh!

Default Penetration problems

Market penetration problems in the States? Sure but how about Northern Europe? I hear they are planning to start a dealership in Germany second half of 2009. Talk about explosive market growth. Oh yeah so they already sell in Iceland (pop. 100,000 bozos). So really only thing I need is to pull a kayak out of my ass and paddle the North Sea some 10,000 miles.
