What a crap bike the Jupiter was! Funny how they take a failure, and make a new bike look just like it.

Hey Sibbo. This might give you some idea on prices. Looks overpriced to me though.

Not exactly "pristine", is it?

But, on second look, I could see it following me home...

I think you will love it Sibbo.
Push "START".
Go finish your tea.
No worries. ;)
I've spent most of my money on women, motorcycles, and beer.
The rest of it I just wasted.

Hey! I never noticed your vertical turn signals on the rear, before! Nice!

I should buy it to have a bike to ride when I come visit.

Seriously - This is one of my favorite internet bikes. when are you going to give us a heads up on a ride way ahead of time so we can join you.
I always brake in corners and think how I am going to get home if I really mess up. When I get home, I wished that I hadn't used my brakes and should have ridden a bit further.

I'm not sure if I'll be doing any more long rides on it but I will on the little Yam.

We see so much the same. Here is Vilia whom I have had for a very long time. Now I am at those crossroads.
