    no price limit (within reason), no date limit (can be old). It must be fast, it must look good, and it must handle well. gogogogogo

    Bummer. I learned more on my first day of CSS than I did in 8 years of riding. I have been back 2 more times since. It's just awesome.

    There is nothing quite like the sound of a Duc with the right pipes on it. It's magical....
