And can you imagine bouncing those cylinder heads off the pavement, scratching those beautiful pipes, denting that massive tank...Boy did you do the right thing.

Fro a cruiser/standard? Sure.



For a sportsbike? That bar might need to be a bit lower.

Oh, man. I'm sitting here thinking of how I could get to you. The price is right but the distance is to far for me. I'm in Arkansas.

Oh, you can BET he's re-upped, one way or another. Prolly with a new Alias. One which will be "found out" eventually, but right now he lurks unseen in our midst.

If you're pretty flush, the new BMW 800 has a low seat option, and it has gotten rave reviews in the UK mags. It is 10k though, and insurance for someone your age might be prohibitive. How about a blown Hayabusa, lowered and with an extended swingarm?
