Just pick the same way Dan does, vote for the guy with the nicest butt. :D

oddly enough I did vote for your bike LMAO - you made me spit soda out of my nose when I read that. - and for the record never said your ass was nice, just wanted ass pics - on that note I am not sure you even have an ass cookie, looks like them legs go straight to back.

So technically I am still waiting for ass pics, LMAO
