Yep, kpaul, you're definitely one of those "highly-educated blue staters."

Kind of makes you wonder why, after they led with a goofy picture and obviously fake name, they went to the trouble to provide paragraph after paragraph of seemingly plausible details.



Most people writing this kind of April's Fool's story would try to make it, you know, funny.

Compared to the MO story on the bike stand how was it? Yep the picture and funky name did give it away... Given their audience is polite, nice uh gullile Pacific Northwesterners as opposed to cynical East Coasters and LA folks, they probably thought that no one would get it. up here if they didn't. i.e. folks would be calling the local Suburu dealer to order their bikes..

Of course, we don't just pick the parts we like and can the rest. We look at the whole thing.

Too bad it was just a joke. With Subaru's familiarity with the boxer four cylinder engine they could have made an interesting two wheel drive variant of the old Goldwing.
