    except for ken. he's mean.
    Am not! In fact, I don't even hate the Falcon, although I wouldn't build it like that or own it. It just isn't practical enough for me. I would change the tires, wheels, brakes, seat, bars and that goofy leather thing on the tank. If I was going to spend a butt load of money on a bike as art, I would get and RC 30 or ELR or maybe a TZ750 to park in the living room.

    In fact, I still dislike people that don't know what they want because they are so un-original that they need somebody to tell them what is cool. I don't even hate the chopper and bobber bikes if they are done well, there just seems to be a larger proportion of hackers on those bikes. I am still all about function over form when it comes to bikes. There is just too much cool bling out there that works really well, too if you feel the need to spend money. Want to drop real money? Get some Magnesium or CF wheels. How about some Supermoto spoke wheels with wide alloy rims and big ss spokes. Very artistic and practical.

    Ken,

    It sounds like Catboy has your goat and is making a lot of goats milk with it.

    If the falcon is art it is the Thomas Kinkade painting of motorcycles. Something someone with more money than sense buys to display in their home. I liked my wank book analogy better.

    What that bike needs is a wideline featherbed frame. And get rid of that butt ugly exhaust pipe.

    Geeto,
    Excellent post re priorities of life. It is easy to jump from meaningless obsession to meaningless obsession as means of escape or distraction. I know I have done that on a number of occasions for years at a time. Only at 40 am I starting to pull my head out of my ass – starting – it aint completely out yet and could back slide at any moment.

    Anyway – the opinions can educate – over a time of saturation on a subject you start to figure out that some opinions are helpful and some are worthless. Part of the process.
