LAX Lounge Story

We are at LAX. I am flying first class, Duane is in coach. First class has a private waiting lounge with lots of great perks for first class only. Being creative I took Duane there and told the guard was a "Special Needs" senior citizen and was his care taker and needed to watch at all times.. The guard let Duane in..... I am not sure if he believed me or was just impressed with my story... :)

I sure love you Bonnie!

It is powered by a Honda CBX motor which is a 1 liter six cylinder DOHC motor with over 115BHP in a British road racing frame built by Spondon.  The amazing paint was done by Roberto at Blue Cat Paint shop in San Jose.....
