I'd ride it. Once. On a road with no corners.

This^^^ God forbid anyone spend 100's of hours building something like this just for the balls to the wall insanely screaming FUN of it all!!

Ditto for the dude on the Guzzi, he bought it, paid for it, let him enjoy in however he sees fit. I hate seeing this done to obsolete bikes, (old honda's, yamaha XS's, buells, Harley's, etc) but he looks like he's having fun on the dragon riding a motorcycle completely unsuited to it. Good for him, don't you guys have kids to chase off your lawn or something?

BTW... interesting license plate. Doesn't look like anything around these parts. You going to be trailering that bike down to the Dragon? Just wondering...

Who knows where around these parts is since your noob ass hasn't filled out anything as simple as your location.

I don't see any front brake at all on that bike. And his feet are on the passenger pegs, away from the rear brake. Hope he didn't run into any surprises!

If you're talking about this bike:



It is an obsolete Honda.

No front brake lever and no left arm on the rider.

His left hand is obviously holding something ELSE from falling off.

That just looks horrible. I have no idea why anyone would even attempt to ride such a machine.
This is the first bike I've seen where a set of ape hangers are actually functional. There's no way he could reach anything else!
