    I agree that they have a cool factor.

    On my list of things to get the Goat is right behind crotch rot and a root canal.

    IMHO it was designed by an idiot after consulting with a moron.
    And the Dark Man said to him, "I will set you high in my artillery. You are the man I want." Then he saw an army of ten thousand driving across the desert and into the mountains, a rough beast of an army whose time had come at last. And riding in a giant tanker, he saw himself, and knew that the truck was filled with Napalm. Behind him, in a long column, were trucks loaded with bombs, mines, plastic explosive, flame throwers, flares, heat seeking missiles, grenades, machine guns and rocket launchers. The dance of death was about to begin, and already the strings of the fiddles and guitars were smoking and the stench of brimstone and cordite filled the air.

    Please don't think a goat is "Low Maintenance". They needed a lot of repair when they were new, even after having been debugged. The brakes work just fine in my opinion. I don't like having to "un-steer" coming out of turns. The steering is not self correcting.

    You will become very familiar with U-joints owning a goat.

    Hello Patracy,

    Since you still own one, and you are not THAT far from me, may I get a ride in yours some day?
    I would like to at least get a ride in one, even if I cannot ever get one myself.

    Good day
