Recipe and video. ‘I can’t believe you made that’ cake Lorraine Pascale

I could go for a slice of that. Or a piece of chocolate cheesecake with raspberry syrup drizzled over it....

Monday, you missed out a bit of important info.

What's the pie carrying capacity of that yellow beast?

The carrying capacity capacity of that bike is almost zero. There is not even enough room under the seat for a pair of waterproof pants. I have successfully carried a box of sushi home in a plastic bag by hanging it off the handle bars. Only a short trip though under 2 km.


You get nothing under the rider seat.


And a little space under the pillion seat. The little blue bag is a toolkit.

Still its a nice bike Monday, I had about as much room with the GS1150ES as you did, of course since the 1150cc engine is an inline 4 cylinder, not a 1200cc 2 cylinder V-twin mill, it would accelerate that much harder, in other words hold on tight or fall off, I had fun on that bike, but then with the right rider it could do the quarter mile in 10.5 seconds... And yes I'm still licensed, but I don't have the means to own more than a car now.

This goes hard enough Victor. I've been against the seat step a few times and it's great. Trouble is it only takes a few seconds to be seriously breaking the law and risking death. lol.

Edit. I have a car for getting all the pies I need. :)

Yeah, Me too, though I've in the past hit the gas and not gotten caught, today I just use the cruise control, can't get Me for speeding at less than the limit or for past speeding that only I can say happened.

Sorry Mark, that was on an '84 Suzuki GS1150ES, your '87 Mazda would be hard pressed even with Me on the bike in 1984 to do more than watch My taillight leave you far behind, in the dust...

And my Buell wouldn't even want to be seen in the same street as a Mazda.

All I have now is a 1999 Ford Escort zx2 HOT sport coupe w/ac that still needs fixing, right now I'm working on replacing a front door to the house and then the DMV and smog check in September, the bike and any stang are long gone, someone else owns them now.

I never had a Stang' but one of my old
girl friends had a pinstriped white /69
fun car. That car had horrible gas mileage,
but a blast to drive.

I once hit 100 in my first car, a '69 Buick LeSabre. It was totally unmodified and already in pretty crappy condition when I owned it, but it didn't have any problem going that fast.

[edit]
I paid $425 for it in 1985 or '6.

100 on the '84 GS1150ES at 6am in the morning and not a cop to be seen as I knew where one was and He was going the other way, hehehe...
105 in the '99 Escort(and no farther as the engines computer limits the speed)
135 in the '06 Mustang GT(should have gotten the '07 instead), when I had one, that was a blast.

No tickets and if anyone saw Me, they didn't say anything, so who's to say that any of it happened?

What motor? The 350 or the 455?

If I recall, the LeSabre came with either flavor that year.
The one I owned was a 455 version.

350.

Part of the reason I didn't go any faster is that it was night on an unfamiliar road. There was traffic too. Not much, but some, and it wasn't going 100.
