WTF pictures

Chemistry is chemistry. I'll stick with proven technological gizmos, like petroleum and air in a well-understood and reasonably efficient reaction bombe set to gears and tires. XS650 being a good example. Never yet has one exploded, well maybe with enough RDX... "It is rare for a motorcycle gas tank to explode. Under very specific conditions, like smoking, soldering with an open flame or welding near a gas tank that has a leak, a gas tank may explode. A motorcycle gas tank may also explode in rare cases if shot at with the correct type of bullet." (!!!!) https://www.adventurebiketroop.com/can-a-motorcycle-gas-tank-explode/

I remember reading that at STP air saturated with gasoline vapor cannot explode or burn. It has to have less than saturated. However this is not the case with methanol vapors saturated in air at STP. Calling flight 800...
 
Stopped by a worthy looking rummage sale this afternoon.An $8.00 seat to try on my ugly discontinued Huffy Supreme I had to have a few years back.This is seat #6 I’m trying. I learned to ride bicycles (and still can if she’s not looking)backwards very young,but riding forward correctly and comfortably is almost a thing of the past the last few years.The doc says,”You were born in 59,find a Non pinching seat.Dont quit riding.”Re;Any real bicycle garu’s got a pinch less recommendation for a seat that works?

Possibly the worst combination of Yamaha parts and stationary engine ever. Goes in the file of just because you can doesn't mean should.
Lister engine?... I have a 6-1 that belongs to a genset. A thundering 6 HP @ 650 revs. Rattles the tea cups 100 feet away. The scooter may have gyroscopic effects...aheemmm.
 
But, but.........I bet it's torque
Rode with seat #6 installed.Best yet.However a bit of unnecessary torque up to 40mph or so lol.Got Marty’s seat suggestion on the Father’s Day list.If that one don’t work,It’s motorcycles,no bicycle ideas no more.🚶‍♂️.✅.

I think it was motorjet, ie no turbine. axial compressor (I think) driven by a robust piston engine...but I might be wrong. Pretty. It flew. The symbol? Ah well, something to do with an Italian gentleman associated with the little fella with the funny mustache. There's another motorjet, I think, "Jakes' Jeep" comes to mind...oh well. Enjoy!
