This ad was spotted in San Francisco Craig's list. Entertaining.
You are looking at one sexy BBW of a bike. Her name is Bertha and she loves to ride. I bought Bertha a year ago and she has been my moped on steroids. I only ride her around the city when I need to get somewhere fast. She is a k model with an F motor clip ons, two tires the back is new the front needs to be replaced before long. Dual disc up front on this bitch because fat chicks don’t stop on a dime they stop on big wet burritos. One fork seal is blown. Clear coat on the tank is coming off. But just like any hot fat chick you date they have problems so what do you expect? Give her love and she will get you laid. Does she need work? fuck yeah she does but you could ride her for years and only do the bare minimum and she would be fine. Starts up right away on the first time but then she needs to sit there while she gets her juices flowing. compression check was within specifications. Can you fucking believe that? If you are some skinny mission hipster/trustafarian this would be the perfect bike for you to hide your wealth behind, and mitigate your outrageous 5k collection of apple products you can’t even use but to browse the internet and post pics of you facebook playing the same three cord on your guitar with some stupid scarf on your neck. This truly is a poor persons Honda. The only problem with hipsters is you are probably too weak and pot saturated to wield such a big bitch; Hipsters are used to women who starve themselves on cigarettes, cocaine, bottled water, and tofu patties. I think a 50cc Buddy would be really up your ally. If you have any questions let me know. If they are funny and not entirely stupid I may answer. If you actually want to buy this thing I will probably in all likely hood respond. If there are no buyers I will ghost ride this bitch into a wall for 500 and you can video that shit and put it on youtube or digg if you are one of those.
Edit: Sale Pending. And I posted a pic of some of the sweet tang Bertha helped me land. Better hope the buyer doesn’t follow through.

Carla Gugino has been acting pretty long. She started as a model first and guest starring in TV shows in late 80's. Her outfit in "The One" still makes me drool.
I always liked her. She is very nice inside and outside. She has been dating a quite ugly guy with talent, not with money or looks. She is most known as a mom in "Spy Kids" movies among youngsters. Did nude scene in "Sin City" Never understood why she did not get to be a big star. She will be in upcoming Sci-Fi movie, "Sucker Punch".

You can tell the guy was flying and missed the breaking point. I am sure that he was proud how fast his bike could go on straight. Panic break makes everything worse...
By the way, you are not allowed to stop on track to see if the wrecked rider was okay. They have EMT and course worker present to do the job.
"Hubley Manufacturing Company was founded in 1894 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The first toys Hubley produced were made of cast iron. Early models included horse drawn wagons and various toy guns. As transportation modes changed Hubley began to manufacture toys to follow suit, including numerous cars, trucks, motorcycles and other vehicles. Many of the most expensive Hubley toys sold at auction have been motorcycles, in fact. All Hubley toys were painted by hand."
This Hubley Popeye motorcycle was sold at Morphy Auctions in September 2008 for $18,400.00!!
I hear older cast iron toys from Hubley would fetch over 100 grands....
As it gets colder to ride, you might want to invest on outfit to keep you warm. This hoody and t-shirt from Threadless will do some and makes you look like a Tron rider. This shirt isn’t quite available, yet but the company was taking vote for it. I have no idea if they have decided to print them.

"A man who was caught riding his motorbike along the Eastern Freeway in Melbourne with a barbecue strapped to his body was fined $800 today and lost his license for one month.
Michael Wiles spotted the cast-off cooker on the nature strip where it had been left for rubbish collection and, not wanting to splurge on a new one, decided to pick it up and take it home.
The 29-year-old proceeded to thread his body through the barbecue's frame and popped up the grate in front of his helmet before setting off along the Eastern Freeway in Kew on January 27, 2008, reaching estimated speeds of 75km/h."

I don't carry anything on my bike if it don't fit in my satchel or strapped on seat with bungee cords.
Is so far one of the favorite bands ever. And possibly the BEST cover band I know...They make my heart dance. The band was an invention of the Finnish film director Aki Kaurismäki, It was featured in a few films as a fictional band. However, was made up of Sakke Järvenpää and Mato Valtonen, members of a real Finnish band the Sleepy Sleepers with some additional musicians.

a picture of the magnificent Burrell 3 speed road engine "Hawkes." built in 1904 as a road haulage engine "Hawkes" uses a single crank compound engine for propulsion. with a trailer behind this is maybe a pre-prototype of today's modern semi-trailer rigs. certainly a lot better looking.
