I'd seen photos of this bike before - several years ago. It's great to see the bike again, and see someone is still looking-out for this Moto.

The accessory tire pump and built-in inspection light are pretty cool. Today you are lucky to get a centerstand.

Zod, I have great concerns about our campaign success. Yes, we may be aliens, but we don't look ethnic and we aren't female. I feel if we do not pander to this segment we may lose many votes. I am thinking Ursa may need to take a more prominent role in this campaign.

Non is also willing to commit to a gender re-assignment procedure to help aid our hopes for world dominance.

As always, I await your command.

Non

Don't worry. Did you see the squishy Terran Democrats who are so happy that the Planet Houston is being devastated by a hurricane during the opposition's convention? Should we lose they will carry out our policies. See how willing they are to wreak harm on innocent parties in the pursuit of political power. I find their lies about the new double squishy Terran Palin refreshing too. They would easily be manipulated into wreaking the same damage we would. Then after 4 years of such horror Planet Houston would welcome our rule.

I had an ispection light on my '48 Nash Statesman. You could see the flathead six in all its glory even on the darkest night. Must be some kinda old time device we don't need anymore.

Nothing to see under the hood nowadays but a big plastic cover. Auto manufacturers have taken a cue from '80s sport-motorcycle manufacturers and hid everything beneath a piece of ABS.
