Default Why get a "Double Mono Bra"?

Isn't that just like buying a regular bra?

Are you talking about that bike where it looks like they took a single-sided swing arm from a Triumph and used it to mount the front wheel?</p>

Looks like several of them will roast your bunz in fairly short order.



Franc-ly, they all look like they'd set you back boo-coo bux.

These bikes are monsters! Don't know how long I could ride one, but it would be a blast while I did. The comment above about 'Biker Build Off' brought to mind 2 things: why don't we have more of these custom shops in the States? And, I've often wondered what a Cafe Bike built by Exile Cycles would look. They seem to be the only builders on the Discovery Channel with any sense of product or history.

Way Way Cool Steven thanks. Too bad we can't get Speed Channel to have a biker build off for these types of bikes... We get Texas Hardtails soon instead. <a href="http://www.speedtv.com/programs/383/"> Bikes and Beer Guns and Girls La La La...<a>

I don't know about those bikes, they look like quick death (but a fun last five seconds of life) to me. the GSXR 1100 quad could be highly entertaining though, especialy if driven on the street =)



P.S. Was I the only one who noticed every bike seems to have a little pressure tank strapped to it... Nitrous?
