    No political opinion; however, while reading Flipboard, one of the articles focused on some recent political satire. Somehow, this Virginia Democrat, Dan Helmer, "Spoofs Top Gun" riding in and delivering his last message atop a venerable 5TH Gen.

    Google It

    YouTube Video -->

    Don't really appreciate the link ending in SOHC though...

    Dunno about his singing or politics, but dig his taste in bikes.

    Enjoy...

    I've never seen a cheesy local ad featuring a VFR before. Gotta love seeing the moto no matter the ad. Thanks for sharing!

    They go through the trouble of finding the perfect "do it all" bike for the everyday man, then dub some shitty inline 4 motor sound over it?!

    Bastards.

    Should have dubbed the entire scene OR just shown the bike. Good catch; that was pretty ratty at the beginning; but was just so glad to run across something recent.

    I'll plead the 5th here, as I've seen it before, even though the link isn't working SMH.

    Come ooon, this guy has never ridden a bike. Just look at him walking the bike............it was probably not even running at that time.
