I'm so glad ................I have a souped up "custom" ZX10R for a lowley $15,000.00! I could have 3 of these for one of those "biker build off" deals that are a total joke. I know I had a custom V twin expensive bike and who needs the stress? My only stress now is ....................WHERE ARE THE COPS? That's about it!

Just to set the record straight, I meant "rubes" as in "bumpkins." But you're right, many times they're one in the same.

Dudes, lighten up! There's room in the hobby for everyone that rides on two wheels. They are our brothers, even if we hide them in the backroom when company comes...

I have a friend of mine that has been invited to these "Biker Build-offs" several times and he always declines.



He builds customs and does H-D service as well. He thinks it's a kooky as most of us do.

Default Fifth Gear Rules!

Fifth Gear gets my vote as both the best motojournalism -and- the best overall program I've ever seen on TV. I'm inspired every time they take a pair of cars to Anglesy and let Tiff wring them out. -Sean

Went to Daytona for bike week. It's more of a media event than a motorcycle one. There seemed to be more cars than usual, Mom, Dad and the kids hoping to get a look at the OCC boys.

On the positive side, the new chopper craze has been good for the little guys (fabricators). Still I wonder..........have these Discovery channel "movie stars" ever ridden a real motorcycle, or maybe they did and decided they look better on a parade float.

"Schadenfreude!" I was looking for that word the other day. Thanks, but too late.

Sure they do, remember when Paul Sr. bought Jr. an Ultra Classic? Now they both have one.

Default Quite an engineer you are.

They are not engineers they are "artists". I have to admit that most choppers seem to be more for looking at than for riding.



I thought that a Chopper function was an expression of the owner/builder. If you do buy one what is the point?



I guess it is not all that differn't than Hot Rods except that most most hot rods these days are better cars than the original material.
