Build a Yamaha this winter!

You too can build your very own V-Max from scratch! All you need is paper and a printer...
Yamaha has a section of it's official motorsports site devoted to origami. You can print off the pattern for several motorcycles, animals or greeting cards. Pretty cool really. They have both realistic and pull-all-your-hair-out-ultra-realistic motorcycle patterns. I plan on giving a realistic version a go this winter.

They also have a bento section on their site which is interesting to see. The Japanese, you have to love them.

Neat. Never been very crafty - doubt I will try anything.

Mostly I just Ride.  :happyrider And beginning to slow down on that.
Ride Country Roads - a lot. :-)

Those do look pretty cool...but if I get that sort of energy I have 1:1 scale motorcycles I should be working on.  Granted, the paper ones can be worked on at the kitchen table and it's warmer there than in the garage.   Still...
