ANY WAY THAT THE STORY ON THE SUPERTRIKE AND THANKS FOR STOPPING BY AND BY THE WAY YOU JUST NEED TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE SPECIAL AND WE APPRECIATE YOU.

I'm the special one? This simply reeks of win.

...wow. Just...wow.

I thought I'd seen most potential permutations of two-wheeled stupidity, but I guess they're always building a better idiot.

The kicker for me is that he used a Virago, possibly the shttiest bike I've ever had the displeasure of working on. (No offense to any owners intended. I think most of the bikes I've worked on were pretty shtty in their own special way.)

Think of it as getting your upper body workout done on the way to the gym.

Sorry, all I saw was a tattooed German dude sneering like Billy Idol.

Does it need 18" wide rear tires to put down the power from the same 100" S&S motor everybody else uses? Or are they for show?

I like Russel all right, but his bikes look like cartoon drawing of motorcycles to me. They're better than the rest of the TV show bikes, but they're still TV show bikes.

And any bike with that much rake is gonna be a bitch to turn. Simple physics.

Anyway, it wasn't built to turn. It was built for a shirtless tattooed German guy to sit on it and sneer. Seems to do okay at that.

Just a modern version of the old beetle trike of long ago.

There's no engine in the back of a Geo?
