The best part about this is you being butt-hurt about another person criticizing your criticism and being utterly unaware of the blinding irony of it all. It's quite comical.

Great pics on this thread. Many of them oddly calming during a hectic day.

Indeed he would! Very similar bikes, although his are fully custom. As for the rider, we're probably somewhat similar. I'm just much fatter and smoke far less marijuana (which is to say, none). ...

You're not the first to say it, and you won't be the last. Nor do I disagree. Options are limited for the 6'10" rider, unless you go full custom, which I wasn't going to do with my first bike. Ugly...

Very true. They're certainly two different kettles of fish, but the lack of institutional will regarding motos is beginning to irk me. We had another near-catastrophe with a moto at Paris Roubaix.

I guessed your location correctly the second I saw your bike. Can't quite put my finger on why, but I know a certain sort of DFW bike when I see it.
