    I have mixed emotions about the dual sport tires, as I'd never take a bike this heavy in the dirt.
    That seat, while looking cool, pretty much sucks. It has spacers to hold it up a bit to hide the dip of the frame, and thus flexes and pokes in wierd places with the plastic pan. But it does look and ride well, and with a more rigid seat pan and a little more padding could be a great bike. I couldn't see it being a good 'racer', though. Just a neat street, and apparently dirt(?) machine.
    Did you notice the ohlin's shocks, and spoke wheels? Those aren't stock...
    It ain't easy bein' fat and greasy.

    95% of "trackers" never venture off the tarmac.

    And 73% of statistics are made up on the spot.

    Those dual sport tires are for 80% road / 20% dirt use. In many customers minds they are 120% dirt use. That bike will never be used on dirt, it's just for dirty old dreams. They will work just fine on the road.

    If the shop can't make a rigid seat frame, well they should have bought a Greg Hageman one. ( maybe they did! ).

    Danger, is my business."

    The Star Bolt has a "Build Your Own" option that allows you to configure the bike how you want it. There was a segment on one of the shows with All Girls Garage with Jesse Combs where they did a build with a bunch of "bolt" on parts.

    I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, too old to take an ass whooping, and a cop is too heavy.
