My Dad is letting his big pretty pumpkin go. (A single tear falls.)

He doesn't tell you this in the ad, but if you look closely at the second pic, you can see a small painted on roach design on the front of the lower plastic.:D

Actually, that's a pretty nice looking bike. The color sorta grows on you after a bit. The ad says that there are BMW Hard Bags that go with the bike, but I noticed there are no pics with the bags on. Are they the same color as the bike?

I thought that was a bug splat. :) Nice bike though.

Yeah, I saw that too. I didn't know he even had hardbags. He never uses hard bags. I'm sure they're not orange, or I would have seen them.

A Roach. HAHA!
Ben apparently longs for one so badly that he painted his VFR just like one.

A person who is tall enough to touch the ground. :D

Has the bike ever been down? I am assuming that the paint job is due to repairs, I could be wrong.

Actually yeah, but it was orange before he crashed it.

Last New Year's Eve, he and a friend were riding on 336 or 337 or 33-whatever in the Hill Country near Leakey, and he went down on some gravel and slid across the pavement. Little damage was done, he was able to ride it home, and everything was replaced. Like it never even happened. He's ridden it plenty of miles since then, and he's real picky about all his toys looking and working right.
