    I get that, the good looking ones always are....o yeah we are talk bikes. Never mind :lol3


    It does have that mad max kind of style though. The Yamaha should be solid as a rock though.

    Great photos, and it looks like you are having a blast riding your bike built for the occasion, must feel pretty damn good :wings

    Okay!! Been awhile, stuck working… hopefully it pays off with more rides this fall! But shes back on the dirt wheels, fresh RallZ up front and a big block in rear 881B6892-D51C-4F26-930D-BB0264A1546B.jpeg
    ALSO for all who wonder about the front brake with single rotor, i get asked alot 3F8186FF-B118-4A6B-B723-017602997791.jpeg heres a nice pull on it haha. On the tires i use it has great performance, obviously street tires not as ideal though!
