Pelican boxes as child carriers?!!!



Boy, that got your attention, didn't it?

This cartoon strip appears in Minnesota Motorcycle Monthly this particular one was in the Sept '07 edition. Great strip, here is a link to their archives of cartoons:

The pictured bike is clearly a Concours, one of my previous rides - man the bags on that thing were great for capacity, as well as being a bit better tucked-in - no problem putting an XL helmet in them. The cartoonist is clearly a Concours owner, or familiar with someone who is - COGers are real fanatics for that bike.

Yup, he's a Cogger (as well as many of us Wee/V owners seem to be).
