    Boss Hoss, baybee, Boss Hoss.
    Bikes:
    2007.5 Tuono-Black, with 1102cc's of micah's badness!
    2012 Griso-Silver and black, Agostini pipe, some carbon bits.
    2006 Vespa GT200-bitubo suspension all around, Malossi big-bore, head and cam, Akrapovic pipe, all put together by Micah.

    gone 2002 Caponord-Oyster gray (as faithful as a hound dog)
    gone Futura-Red (on the AF1 showroom floor. Get some.)

    The more I learn about people, the more I appreciate rocks.

    Boss Hoss! I've seen a few but one time I asked a guy a stupid question."Can you turn corners with that"? He said, "Well I got here!!"
    Last time I asked that question.

    I don't think I possess the junk to toss one of those into a corner!
