Sweet Mama's Pancakes!

That's a fine looking bike pcarrell.

i agree, looks better solo. But.. most bikes do.

Did you say you did your own fringe work???

And..umm.. how does that Handicap License work on a motorcycle????

Yes, I'm a Chrome Whore.

Thanks!

Yeah, the fringework is mine. I use deer leather so that if it gets wet it dries soft and flexible. Most leathers dry hard, but deer leather is soft and supple, and stays that way.

The Handicap plate is just like any other....I can park in handicap spaces (when the wife is with me of course). If you can get them for your car, you can get them for the bike(though you usually see them on trikes).

(BTW, I'm glad it's not your bike I'm up against!)

Each is to their own. That is why we make our bikes differently whether it is done out of wants or needs. At the end of the day the only person the bike needs to make happy is it owner.

Personally I like Big Worms. You got my vote this go around so far.

1985 Honda Nighthawk 650 (First Bike)
2004 Vulcan 1500 Classic (First Big Bike)
2007 Vulcan 1600 Meanstreak (Love Affair)
1999 Yamaha 1100 V-Star Custom (Right Price at the Time)
2008 V2K Classic (Favorite Vulcan)
2014 HD Ultra Limited (Bells and Whistles)
Who would have thought I would grow up to become "Spatially Educated" and play Connect-the-Dots for a living.
