I loved the steamers. Always wanted one.

From the looks of it, I would think it was really a water buffalo or a chemical tank, meaning the tank is plastic. He's obviously not using it for that with the top cut out. Perhaps he just hinged the lid to make it suitable to haul cargo?

Something doesn't look right about the location of the exhaust. Appears to be lower than stock.

He uses it to haul his camping stuff. I saw it at the Triumph rat raid last weekend. He was talking about adding a nose cone and fins to make it resemble a bomb. Fitting, as the bike has a military aircraft theme.

On second thought, maybe he is so used to his obese girlfriend riding on the back that he just doesn't know how to ride any other way.

I know the muffler on the 955 Sprint was adjustable in position to facilitate rear wheel change, and possibly to allow different saddlebags to fit. That position definitely looks like the lower position.
I thought of that when I first saw the original photo.
