Hop onto curbs also with it with ease

If I could choose outside the list id say grom cause its small cuts through small or tight spaces/traffic, cut through alleys, 120mpg, and usually people dont get mad at it for cutting through traffic because they usually just see a little clown bike cutting around

Wear your leathers and one of the Elmo helmet covers and I'm sure no one will ever get mad at you no matter what you do.

The Green Harley Dirt Bike, there's one just like it, at Mancuso X-Roads. Dunno if they've moved it but it was there right behind the receptionists desks for years.

That being said, I'd pick the Moto Guzzi behind the Harley for houston traffic.

obviously, you have never served nor spent time with Grunts, Jarheads or Squids....

Only thing that is top notch in the .mil is the Enlisted/NCO men/women, or if it flies and fires.

Everything else is marginal at best.
