I remember the infamous WT ANAL VORTEX.

That was before the time of most of you.

That's where I'll leave it.

The Honda race bikes were so very awesome............and everything a kid like me (at the time..........1967 I was eleven) dreamed of.

In my opinion, the M1 rifle is the greatest battle implement ever devised.

The cbx was a bad ass bike. The local Honda dealer where I used to live had one in the shop in mint condition.
