Name that bike

Having toyed with the name "Red Molly", we finally seem to have settled on "Cassandra".

In Greek mythology, Cassandra ("she who entangles men") was a daughter of King Priam and Queen Hecuba of Troy. Apollo fell in love with her, and in an attempt to seduce her, gave her the gift of prescience. Unfortunately she spurned him, and he punished her with the curse that nobody would believe her prophecies. Hence she was ignored when she foresaw the destruction of the city of Troy, and the Trojan Horse.

On a rather different note, we offer a link to Cassandra Wilson, with a compelling version of "Death Letter" by Son House.
