It seems to be functioning just fine.

I swear I saw this guy, or a guy just like him, in town here a few weeks back. That's just a sight you don't soon forget. Not your stereotypical Winger...

Yep...I can't say that I particularly like the 'busa, but I certainly can appreciate the attention to detail and the skill and artistry involved.

I'm shocked that instead of latching on to how "fail" you think the riders are for not being "ATGATT", some of you latched on to the bike itself.

Just when I think I have this place figured out.....

You must be patient. It was coming, I assure you.

Not from me.

While I think it is a good idea to wear the proper gear, it is my choice, just as it is their choice not to wear it. I went for quite a time wearing little gear...even a few pirate years that I was not likely to wear a helmet most days. I have no room to be a gear nazi, even if I was so inclined.

Y ou're looking at the jackshaft . the swingarm pivot is in the stock location. Another thing, these guys don't usually like to lube their chains as the grease gets on the chrome wheels.It has to handle like shit so give the guy some credit for at least going around a corner with it, most of these are just eye candy.

Mike's got it right. Just a couple having fun.

You guys are right... I'm jumping to criticize too quickly. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

And I'm actually a local.... Raleigh born and breaded.

No! NO! NO!

You're suppose to respond to being chastised with a gross amount of indignation leading to a further piling on and eventual "Head Explody".


Dammit, you are throwing the whole damn thing out of kilter.



Can someone please reset the internet.
