[QUOTE=NCStephen;19638652]I really think you were not given your fair knocks. Clearly you aren't paying your fees around here.

Forget all the good points.. looking through curve, bodies a little to the inside, relaxed, both driver and passenger, and having gear on, apexing the turn with a bit of margin left, tires look inflated enough for the extra weight, And it seems like a good ride.

NOW....
Riding apparel?? seriously.. thats appropriate street riding apparel for sporty twisty asphalt riding and riding to the edge of the tires (we will bring up tires later) ? Not only that but from looking from behind there are visibility issues, dark blue (Duke Blue?? come on now.. you can do better) and black.. Where are the day glow colors? Hiking boots for the passenger... is she hiking or riding? (nice new ones too.. I like them) Will those pants do the job for her if you go down? Does her jacket fit. It looks baggy like the padding could slide around due to it being too large.

Tires... knobby tires for assertive street riding.. what where you thinking (other than having a good time LOL)?
Those tires also look like there isn't much of a chicken strip left on them. Are you sure you were riding conservative enough?

Tool box. Nice job on getting a tool box mounted on the bike and but then painted black.. . Can that rack support all the weight you can pack in there?
And really .. wouldn't a milk crate be better, more visible and more suitable for that bike? At least put reflective stickers all over the back of it..

Visors... ah... they are open.. what good is that?

Camera on helmet... Do we get to see what the view was from there?

Well you did ask...

All in all.. a thumbs up... but we aren't really supposed to admit that here now are we?

Some people worry to much. As the group Queen Said get on your bike and ride!

Not a worry at all, done during lunch with a full serving of jest and a dessert of admiration. (well the duke blue would be better a full shade lighter to Tarheel Blue )

Yep. Corbin.

Edit- from their site, "At the bottom we mold close around the stock exhaust system and sweep back to show off the trick rear wheel assembly"

All that for just about $2,000.00

Enjoy the trip!
If you guys don't know Dog, he arrived here in the States from Australia early this year. He is spending an entire year riding around the U.S. and spreading his cheer!

He is a great person, if you see him stop and have a chat and buy him a beer.

NCS

There's other pics of me in this thread?
I thought I've been good at keeping tabs on it, but it must of slipped through.

Must not have been the first pic that got snapped of me when I first entered.
Damn photographer scared the shit out of me and I really blew that curve.
