Wheelies, stoppies, and other hooliganism!

Seriously, ride it and have fun, and the h**l with what others think.

I would LOVE to see someone testing for their license on one at the DMV.

I did a demo on an 8V last summer, and it was just enough more engaging than an R12RT to be fun. I thought it was geared too tall, but all the big tourers are.

When the weather turns to shit I start looking for big comfy warm bikes. Freezing rain yesterday, so here we are.
