My feelings, beliefs, and/or ideas about just about anything. The bike even parks like a real motorcycle, thanks to a double-leg kickstand that raises the front wheel when locked down. The word "Sting-Ray" in white lettering on the tires. These are destined to be sought-after collectables like the old Schwinn Sting-Rays of the 1960s and '70s.
