    I'd put it in a CBX I have sitting here waiting for an engine.

    Yep. Somewhere in Lancaster Pennsylvania is a lady with a burn scar on her ankle. BSA BB34 hot exhaust was the culprit.

    I have a scar on my left leg from a '67 BSA Spitfire Mk III exhaust. Happened in '71.

    In the late 70s, a girl I was in college with in Boulder had a Kawasaki KZ900 as her first bike. I warned her to be careful but she went around a sandy corner up 4 mile canyon too fast and went down. The bike landed with the exhaust on her leg and she was riding in shorts. She wasn't strong enough to get out from under it for several minutes and the exhaust pipes branded her leg for life. I don't know if she ever rode it again.

    Nahh, he'd never be caught sitting next to a Honda, or a non Budweiser in his hand.

    I would not be surprised if it's real.

    It is real. From Finland of course.
    The purpose of the bike and those pipes was to work as a musical instrument "organ" in a concert combining various art forms (lights etc.)
    The bike got much publicity beforehand, see example this clip https://www.ruutu.fi/video/724696
    As you can see, the bike is actually very well made.
    But I couldn't find anything about how the pipes actually performed in that concert. All reviews just said the show had too much nudity for a classical music concert hall kind of environment.

    My wife calls the leather clad bikers with chromed out rides Easy Rider cosplay. Kind of like furries for motorcycles. No disrespect intended... everybody needs a hobby.

    Anybody willing to get on two wheels in traffic even if they are more into the look than the ride, gets no disrespect for me scooters included.
