yeah, I can ride a bike 100 mph, but not like that, I love these guys I so wanted to make this race but work screwed me over. Hopefully next year. Being a midwesterner, I have to ask, as far as weather goes should I go to the spring or fall race? Assuming they'll run 2 again next year. Thanks for the pics

Well, it was unseasonally cold for AZ during the spring and about average temps for the fall event. I rode to the first without freezing so it should feel like a warm day to you.

Thanks man. I'm kind of leaning towards the fall one and spending a week or so out that way just cruising

I know this is 205, but.... the coolest "production" street tracker ever - individually designed and hand built from the frame up.

Custom heads, custom suspension..... and very freakin cool.

OK ... "Production" .. in quotes ... which apparently means .. "not production" ... right ?

The words ... "individually designed and hand built, custom heads, custom susp" ... specifically means its .... NOT production

Cool thread

I just found this thread, and so far have quickly scanned the first dozen pages.

I spotted this on page 8...

I think limited production might be a better discriptor. Mert will build you one, but he doesn't keep a showroom full of them for you to walk in and ride home. But if you want one bring some serious coin, he's not cheap from what I remember seeing.
