My Orangutan

Why do you call it your Orangutan, Nick? Well, #1: it's all mine and #2: I cheated and used a Google search (european orange big) and orangutans came up. Not really European, but they are probably the easiest species to compare this bike to. Mainly because viewing from the front of the bike, the ginormous gas tank protrudes outward and resembles the "flanges" that are visible on adult male orangutans:

And, oh yeah, “ORANGugtan”…”ORANGe”… eh, oh well, that’s her name and she’s sticking with it (yeah, it’s a she, it’s just a freak of nature that she has the male flanges, kind of like the bearded lady in the circus, everyone gawks at my orangutan the same way, the only difference is that my lady is free to view, but she’s quick, so take a picture if you need to).

Enough silliness, details:
