I agree, only "bar-hop" riders.


Awesome!

I'm trying to talk myself out of a 2008 Shiver at the moment.

The owner is a stuntman and a very good rider. It looks weird but with him in the driver's seat, it performs more than adequately.

Thumb Easy answer....

A new Norge....Can't post any pics but that's on my list. Not sure if it's just the styling or the mystique of an Italian nameplate. Either way I'm in for one of those. My idea is that a bike should stir the soul somehow. Either through style or maybe even just being a visceral experience when you ride it that feels good.

Here you go.

It's a good thing this color is not available, or I'd be trying to justify a new one.



I love that little door on the lowers so you can actually check and add oil without taking off a bunch of plastic. Thank you Miguel, for that change, as well as the other improvements.
