A Question is Posed
« on: November 16, 2013, 09:56:21 PM »
We know how much a Million is 1x6 zeros
We know how much a Billion is 10x 9 zeros
And we know how much a Trillion is 10x12 Zeros

So, the question is.....

How much is a Pillion?

Hmmm.  They are replaceable, so we must be able to strike a realistic value.    :think1

There is that saying "a pillion in a million", but that's not talking dollars, just merit.

Standby, and I'll ask mine....    :phone
For the modern man who lives in the city, riding a bike might be one of the only ways to escape the humdrum monotony. To take off and ride. To be both at one with nature and one with the bike. To feel masculine. Adam Piggott

Only 20% this isn't 1970 :well. What happened to inflation ?? A purebred Pillion is worthy of 50% at least  :hatwave


Tell you a secret  :whistle I love riding with ST2UP that much I would do it for free  :thumbsup but don't tell !!
