iconic 22
So in the dictionary under "whackaloon" is a picture of me. Part of the condition is the inability to understand others who are normal, like Johnny. Can someone clue me in what an "iconic 22" is? Search function won't let me do 22 by itself. Cute little girlie rifle? A "Catch" of some kind? Skidoo??

Because also under “whackaloon” is noted the inability to see obvious things like clickable links. Didn’t see it. Great info. Guess I’m rapidly becoming a whacker after all.

I hunted one for years, they rarely come up for sale in OZ. I finally got one last year followed by another one. The other day I bought a heap of K75s body panels and assorted parts and along came another 22 Lt. So I colour matched one of the backrests to my seat.

I don't see no stinkin' icons anywhere on this thing.

If you turn it 180*, to the forward position, there should be a tiny but tasteful logo on the top cover ... it's no bigger than a mouse fart.

Funny you should mention TP....my neighbor offered me 2 cases of Charmin for it....I said it's worth 3 because of the little hook loops on it.

I haven't heard back from him.

ICONIC!

You put on one of them Givi or 35 liter bunk houses and the best you can hope for is ironic status.  Close, but no banana.
