    These bikes are in a sense the epitome of "dorky," and yet I like them nonetheless.

    You can have a dorky motorbike?
    Are you sure?

    Still I'm going to stick with my Atom. I tried a motorcycle once and it just didn't feel right where as driving a car is like second nature.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    *collapses* This will get me shot, but character is the excuse of the tasteless.

    It does have an interesting history, at least.

    It's a Cushman scooter built for the US war effort back in the '40s. Hundreds of them were air-dropped into Europe with the D-day invasion, to be used by Allied troops for running messages.

    And though it still looks dorky to me, that wouldn't keep me from hopping on the thing and trundling 'round the neighborhood.

    I guess it's kinda cute the way a little old lady with a purple feather in her hat and pink socks is.
