I've got the Gaerne Supermotards, they're super comfortable and surprising flexible without sacrificing support.
Go on YouTube and check out SUPERMOTO NO LIMITS or PLEVEN SUPERMOTO.

Seems Eric and some other showboat named "Stew" IIRC were invited on a few occasions to see and experience the Darkside. They refused or had prior obligations to get out of every invite.

Self proclaimed "experts" that may or may not even ride are a great source for some folks. Some would rather see for themself, some just make it up as they go.

OK, which one of you is this? (Not the Dragon...)

Shadow with 6 wheels and a big aluminum diamond plate toolbox.

There's a good 4ft of bicycle and box behind the back tire, thing could probably pull a 2nd gear wheelie!

Weight of typical modern bicycles is pretty insignificant, even when cantilevered so far out the back. Can't really see the box well on these pics but if it's only got cycling gear in it, it may not be too heavy either.

Probably not that heavy, other than the steel frame, it's just a bit awkward and shoved right up against a fixed backrest, so there's not much room to move around for the rider.

There is at least 45-50lbs of bicycle on there. Mountain bikes are not that light. The mtn bike alone is probably pushing 30 lbs. That's not counting the weight of the rack which you can't really see. It's obviously ride-able but it has to be pretty whippy and it doesn't look like a lot of fun...
