Scooter Update

So while in Blighty, I did layeth mine eyes and my mitts upon a Honda Shadow. While I do still like the thing, a lot-
A: it sits a bit low for my tastes (I'm 6'2")
B: it's actually NOT as pretty as I thought it was: a lot of what I liked about the photos that desl showed me of it was customization or whatnot.
HOWEVER!
I kept seeing a different scooter and going 'I think that's the Shadow, let's go have a loo-- nope, it's this OTHER thing...'
and liking that OTHER thing more and more.
That OTHER thing is available in the US, brand new, as opposed to having to get someone in the UK to buy it and then ship it over to me, and then hassle with getting it approved, licensed, &c &c &c.
Here is that other thing. I'd be getting it in black, natch, and probably finding a chrome shop in the city that does really good custom work to make up an Edward Gorey fantod.
