Last night I finally got around to watching the most recent episode of “American Chopper.” They made a bike for a company called McCuff. Now, most of the time OCC makes a bike for someone it’s either a company I never heard of, or a company that only minimally impinges on my consciousness.
McCuff, though, I am way ahead of the game!
I read an ad for their product in a motorcycle magazine when I was still working at the library, and when my daughter was still living in Irvine–so, that’s prior to June 2004. At that time, the company that made the McCuff had an address not far from where my daughter lived. So, besides the fact that it looked like a very practical product and ideal for a scooter riding klutz like me, it was kind of a home town deal. So I bought one.
What’s a McCuff? A little yellow donut shaped piece of rubber that keeps you from pouring gasoline all over your scooter or motorcycle when you fill the tank. That may not mean much to the average person, but believe me, I poured enough gas on the Vespa to make this the purchase of a lifetime. 🙂
If you want one, you can get it here.
