I guess a guy's gotta do what a guy's gotta do, lol. Red and green are complimentary colours, right? All kidding aside, it'll go where you can't get with a riding mower. Congratulations on the new addition.

I was riding on a lane w/ ~ 40 km/h, enjoying mother nature, when suddenly a ground wave crossed my way. And the VIKING wasn't fixed...

Only the mower had one or two or... roll overs and yes, the mower is injured!
