New Stallion in the Stable
Photo Location: Our Yard 
Posted By: Sailor, 04-22-2011, 10:34 AM

A new machine is front (but not center) in the garage*, and I simply cannot contain my pride. I think you'll understand when you look at the aggressive rake of the handle. Notice also how the rich red of the deck implies a luxurious counterpoint to the staunch masculinity of the black engine cowl, and one can't help but smile at the colorful - yet ergonomically important - details that add just the right bit of fun to an otherwise purposeful, focused performance machine.

And, man, does she handle!

Jer

*Until my wife returns and wants to put her car in the garage.

I like the way it is "raked" in the front with optional blue handles of course and I would assume posi.
Adding some ghost flames would really make it a "custom machine". I see you have it in mulch mode, my favorite for ultimate performance. Bob

Hey, Bob - I always say, "if it ain't mulch it ain't much." I'm glad you appreciate the qualities of this fine machine.

I like your new machine...that Ferrari red, is one of my favourite colours and a must for any muscle machine.

I also like the exhaust protective screen...reminds me of a similar device on the high riser, straight through exhaust pipes, of a '68 BSA 650cc, Firebird Scrambler motorcycle I almost bought, many years ago.

Tread on the tires...look like they're good for awesome launch off the line....

Lucky devil...my wife wouldn't allow me to have a powerhouse like that in our garage !

Hey Les - here's how to talk her into letting you have one of these baby rocket ships. Play that old Beach Boy's Hit - "Cut Down". You remember . . . .

It happened on the lawn where the grass was tall -
A mean red machine that just won't stall -
When blade meets blade the grass goes down -
I love to hear the snarl of that blade goin' round -
Mulch it up, Mulch it up - buddy gonna cut you down.
