This should be posted in the Countersteering thread, that would give them something to argue about.

I see:

Deer whistles

Tassels

Spot rearview mirrors at the top of the windscreen, and what is that between them? A GPS?

Extra comfy seat cushion

Plywood rear rack. With an astounding array of baggage.

Turbo?? I thought that was factory advertising hype the first time I saw it.

This may well be the epitome of silliness, but it is a remarkable achievement. No worse, really, than "our" blings and farkles, but he looks happy...

I see two trifold aluminum frame cots acting as the framework for the crew roof/backrest /luggage pod. One is oriented fore and aft, the other folded transverse in an upside down U around the luggage. In places, the frame is tastefully wrapped with red electrical tape. Two ordinary wheeled suitcases are stacked on the bottom of the luggage pod. Dog only knows what's above them. For some reason, I imagine him to be Asian. Don't know why.

Ah, yes. I can see the trifold cot frames now. I couldn't quite figure out what he used for the upper "framework". Clever.

Probably a disability of some sort. They fold down when the bike slows to a certain speed. I know a fella with MS who resisted making any modifications to his Harley for years. Didn't want to 'give in' to the disease. When things inevitably got so bad that he couldn't reliably get his feet down in time at stops, he looked at these. In the end, he opted for a sidecar.

The training wheel jabs are easy, but in reality a bike with those on it should be seen as a badge of honor. They mean the rider is not letting ANYTHING, even a permanent disability, keep them from riding.

props for continuing to ride.

I ran into a guy a few summers ago with a rat bike that had Suciside shift because he had only 1 leg. the prosthetic was good enough for him not to need extra wheels but he needed a way to shift..

Never Give Up.
