  ;D ;D Well, the devious plan is to:
Ahem.. get it running and rescued
Take it out to the Oregon nationals next year in the van, stopping first in Idaho to ride some more if it.
Ride it to the coast, then all the way down the coast, one of my bucket list rides
Leave it in SoCal, to be able to ride a slow bike fast instead of a fast bike slow  ;D
Bring the Mighty Scura back to Indiana, where I can actually open the throttle occasionally.  ;)

It's a Transit connect. I had to jump through some hoops to get a bike in it. Lannis said it couldn't be done.. ;D

If you didn't want a Morini before, this video just might make you want one.

Well of course a little short-coupled bike like an MZ is going to fit in there, no problem .... !   They were still paying off Communism over there where they made those, they had to leave half of the metal out of it ....

Uh huh. Uh huh. I distinctly remember "there's no way you can put a full sized motorcycle in a Transit.."  ;D Rosie disagrees.

And you've been reminding me of it for three years every time (A) a Transit or (B) a Motorcycle is mentioned on the list ....  :P    

(satire alert on) I suppose I understand; when you make as few mistakes as I do, when someone actually finds one it's a gala event, like Halley's Comet, to be discussed and rehashed and talked over for years and years ....    8)   8)   ;)  (satire alert off)

The plasma cutter that you use to make the whole process work can be our little secret .....  ~;
