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????

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.
