    Gee. No gloves would be even better. How well do they crash? Dress for the wreck, not for the ride.

    Heatshields over the pipe wrap? I figured he wasn't that lame.

    Tell me again what the technical reason for pipewrap is? :evil

    In any case, that bike looks like ass.

    BOTH these cruiser badass pipe guys FAIL.

    Where are their whips??

    Mr neat-and-clean has some leather kids bike tassels so he might get 1/2 credit.

    But no evil biker guy whips? How they gonna' teach those bad drivers to listen for loud pipes if they can't lay a beating on them with some whip action?

    I like the handle bar mounted to the downtubes. I'm guessing to be used as Highway pegs:dunno.

    And noone here caught what looks like an axe head on the back of his highrise back rest/oar wanna be bike? And I thought we were here to really complain.

    The purpose of the pipewrap is to keep the heat (energy) in the exhaust, this keeps the velocity up and allows better scavenging and improved volumetric efficiency.
    But it's still slow, still looks like ass, and I'd still rather drive my truck.

    I might reply with a WTF more often then is called for, but this is a serious W.T.F. How is that front end holding all that weight? And holy shit that thing had to be big bucks.

    So you're saying he put that thing on a dyno and tuned the carb after chopping off the stock exhaust? :deal

    In his case the reason for pipe wrap is cause he likes how is looks, or he's covering up a shitty workmanship.

    Exactly. So he needs heatshields on top of that?
    No, he wants to ride a bike covered in chrome, with Captain Retard pipes (all for looks, of course) but won't pony up for a transition between his "headers" (headers that go all the way to the rear axle?) and fishtails.

    He's a fucking hack, and his bike looks like shit. At least he's trendy & cool with the Village People.

    He has the freedom to ride what he wants & I have the freedom to call out his lameness.

    And with little chrome skulls. Cute. And if you look closely, I think that the front turnsignal lenses are... skulls. :eek1

    There is enough on this bike for everybody-- you caught it. :)

    A prime example of "more money than sense". BIG bucks for a POS.

    My guess is that the pipewrap keeps the passenger from carbonizing his/her :eek1 leg. :lol3

    Agreed. The wrap is hiding some shitty welds, I'm sure.

    Agreed. Pipe wraps in line with the bitches leg being down, whether the bitch is a he or she is a mystery :lol3
