    David Attenborough's Natural Evolution of Motorcycles

    Observations from my favorite Naturalist:
    2003 TW200 "Betty Boop"
    2006 TW200 "Nibbler", a.k.a. “Mr.Gizmo"

    Here is my take and fix:

    “On the Origin of Species of Motorcycles and Riders by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favored Motorcycle Races in the Struggle for the best Life”

    Way too many past bikes and builds to list. I won't bore you. Questions? Just ask.

    Holy Shit, Batman!

    Believe it or not, I once was a pretty damned good Hare Scrambles/Closed Course Enduro rider. (I rode KTMs, but they said "Penton" on the tank.)
    But Trials riders really blow my dress up!
