Re: Real man ape hangers?

That is WAY to funny. At least when he hits the pavement on his face he'll already be spread eagle!

The exit sign on the right says "Missouri Department of Transportation, next right." I'll bet dollars to donuts those bad boys are illegal in Misery - and probably every other state as well.

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
