Remember the "Big Wheel Trike" by Marx?

Apparently they made quite an impression on some youngsters back in the day, because they're recreating them with their HD baggers. The basic idea is:

-Rake the hell out of the front fork.
-Install a 21" or larger front wheel and tire.
-Ride with pride!

And if that's not enough, you can now buy batwing fairing liners (the part that faces the rider) designed to mount your IPad! Its going to make watching YouTube on the road a LOT easier.

That's popular with the brothers up here, there's a couple of mostly black HD clubs that sport that look along with the chrome nazi helmet. Different strokes I guess.....

Didn't see any Negros with the big wheels, although there is a growing contingent of Black HD riders every year. They wear colors, but don't really look very threatening. Sort of a George Johnson version of "Wild Hogs."

At BW, Big Wheelers were all 40's white guys with bandannas, leather vests or cutout shirts, and no helmets at all.

BTW: if HD is attracting a younger demographic, they damn sure don't go to Daytona. I saw ONE group of 20/30 year olds out of tens of thousands of 40/70 year olds. Ok, maybe the youngsters don't do Bike Week, but the core HD demographic is old ****s.

That's like saying "Food is boring." Which food? Served where? Eaten with whom?

Bike Week can be a drunken cruiser-fest (I enjoyed that for many years), OR it can be races, a chance to meet vendors and manufacturers and see new stuff, hook up with friends from various locales...this year we did a lot of riding; out to Central FL, up the beach to Jax, etc.
