26 April 2011 - 7:06And the Name Is…?
I totally did not deliver the name of the now-to-be-named orange bike on Monday as promised. Instead, I used my blog time to be a complainer, and I wasn’t even complaining about something awesome. It was been well over a month since I put the task of coming up its name on my readership, so now I feel I should make good with my promise of announcing the winner and delivering the promised T-shirt.
The name of the bike is:
Now, because Dough already has one of these t-shirts, and it’s pretty lame that I picked his suggestion, I am going to randomly award the shirt to the person that is picked by the first person who comments on this post with any number between 1 and 19 (excluding 3 and 14).
I know that He Man’s Battlecat is green, and is called Cringer when it is not in battle mode. This bike is not named after that Battlecat, and I am certainly no Prince Adam.
I chose Battlecat, because that’s really what the bike is for. It’s for racing. And even though I didn’t race it at SSAP, Mr Dejay Birtch did, with hopes that he might beat the reigning champion of the event for 3 years in a row, Mike Montalbano. That was a pretty tall order, and considering that Dejay had just come 3rd in the men’s Pro SS at Sea Otter not 2 days before in California, and was making do with a bike that was too big for him, I’d say he did pretty darn good, good enough for 2nd, and good enough to seal the fate on the bike’s name.
So there you have it. And while searching for Battle Cat images, I found this, the quality is pretty bad, but I totally remember this from the 90s. Enjoy!
