    I sent similar pictures to several relatives and they had no idea what I was talking about.



    Chime in with a simple yes or no on whether you have heard of the "Solyndra scandal". I am not trying to start a fight or be political but I am just curious.















    And one with me on my DR650 taken last Saturday. All other pictures taken today 9-19-'11.





    Long live the internal combustion engine!

    Yes, I am aware of the Solyndra scandal. Your TW was a much better investment!

    Can you get a solar panel for the TW? Keep the battery topped up?

    Being from Pleasanton I am not surprised you have heard about it.



    People far away from the S.F. Bay Area, have you heard of Solyndra?

    Anyone who doesn't rely on television or the internet for their news has known of them for years.



    At least we bought them a nice building, if nothing else. Maybe we can rent it out for .02 cents on the dollar.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    Resize your pictures. Life is too short to wait 10 minutes for them to load.
