 That's a nice 71, I'll third it.
If the things you own end up owning you, it's better to be owned by some cool things.

Huge Bummer.  RULES 1 & 2:
1.   The SOHC4 motorcycle must be owned by the forum member.
2.   If the bike is no longer in the possession (however that may be) of the nominee after 1st & 2nd nomination and acceptance, it may continue to the voting thread.  If it is no longer in possession (however that may be) of the nominee before that, it will not continue to the voting thread.
