I met Evel Knievel when I was in 5th class. Got his autograph but sadly he was wearing jeans and t shirt at the time, just like a normal person. The cape was the best bit.

I've got a euro chic one I want to share but it's for a rare bike that I want to buy tomorrow, and will be mega miffed if the blip in awareness means some cashed up kid in some related way to the post impulse buys it while on school holidays. So a distraction by Natalie Bush.

Its difficult to imagine more awesome than that. Even the Lone wolf would struggle against a man with a cape and aero shirt collars.

No photo but I'd like to nominate the young lady in the scarf riding along Spencer St Melbs southbound about 1330 Friday. Sleek looking retro scoot too.
