No more VW DL1000!

I decided I was tired of the VW logos on my Vee. It was a lot of fun bewildering people who really thought VW was making motorcycles, but it's time to move on.

What to do?

Hmmm. Look -closely- at the new badge on my Vee!

This ought to be fun...


And closer still...

That ought to hold 'em for a while. I just wonder how many people are going to see this and not clue in. They'll HARDLY notice.

Did you ask Freya what she thought about this blasphemy?

May be looking at some host vs graft rejection in the near future. Will need to monitor your bikes temperature and other vital signs for a couple of weeks.

Hey Janice, on the plus side you have just added $10,000 to the value of your bike, on the minus side you will now need to carry a much larger tool kit and buy a pick up truck.

Nice Janice. If you're thinking of making a few...I'd buy one (actually I'd buy two, one for my wife's Harley as well...I bet it would be on there for a long time before anyone noticed).
