Yeeesh!

Y'know, they have almost achieved a level of Ugly that equals that of most of the Confederate bikes.

What? No Test Rides? No Burnout pics? No Dyno Chart? Or is this POS another one of those non-rideable pieces of ass-jewelry (and a FUGLY one at that!) that would either have such evil handling that it would KILL the rider and 17 bystanders if you attempted to wring it out - or the hacked-ass frame would fold up so you could stuff it into your wallet and spend it on a wh0re.............. (or BOTH!)

They gonna use the same redneck unoriginal hack-ass job on the ZX-10 they're doin' next? (WITH another S&S motor in it!)

Sorry, my back's hurtin', and now so are my eyes.

Motor would look nice in a 1/4 midget, or a boat. A Morgan three-wheeler? Too much motor on top to build a decent looking bike....

Default You've got to be kidding me.

Are there really that many mouth-breathers (or other non-motorcyclists) around that are still impressed with this stuff?

I guess the CW reality show explains a lot.

So they couldn't figure out a way to fit a huge-ass motor with a huge-ass blower attached in a mail-order frame? I'm so not surprised.

"Hey, let's just cut the thing in half, Enis!"

I'm actually a little curious as to how they're going to f*ck up a ZX-10R.

"The drive belt for the blower is spun directly off the crank,” says Cantwell. This was way out of the norm."

So, exactly what is the "norm" for those thousands of 4-barrel carbed supercharged HD clone choppers out there? Oh, I know. Remember that bike MO covered that had the supercharger sitting right in the rider's line of sight facing forward? The builder had to put a plexiglass "window" in the air scoop so the rider could see? Yeah, that's the norm...

Hasn't the garage reality thing peaked yet? I woke up in the middle of the night a while back and put on Speed, I swear they had a reality show on car detailing. Maybe I was dreaming. What about a series on tire changers? Man, think of the drama when a Lambo pulls in with $25,000 worth of custom wheels. Our rookie hero has to put on new tires and balance them without dinging the rims. The boss goes crazy when he sees a hammered on weight on a wheel, and makes the rookie plaster stick-on weights all over his face to teach him a lesson. I'd better call my agent!

....a nice blue '69 Charger R/T with a supercharged 440 would get me tent-poled quicker than Monica Belluci deliverin' pizza and a six pack of Peroni's to my house in her skivvies, hell stick a couple o' Harley stickers on the Dodge and I'd probably embarrass myself on the spot!

I wouldn't take a bet on how long it took this rolling turd to fold up on itself though........
