has black version, he can emulate the powers of magma which means to my bike as heat
attraction to people. Hence I dubbed my bike as "BMZ" I really like this game especially
its character “ZERO” I really enjoyed playing it when I was a kid. Besides that I am
addicted to this stuff, I look at also the features of this character that may match to my bike
modifications. Zero has a wide variety of weapons, reflecting to my bike, I also did many
