Demon Motorcycle Enslaves China

Let’s see who that title draws in. I don’t think this bike has actually enslaved anyone, yet, but t has gained a following of thousands of cats and red-headed children. I’m not really sure what all that means, I just report what the voice in my head tell me to. “Are you psychotic?” I don’t …
