    so, let's catch up...

    OP posted one of the MANY MANY sweet track bikes he has. i assume the most recent build. (it's like a f'ing harem of women he has) One that wasnt designed by an italian with too many i's in his name but desgined by the school of hard knocks.

    that was his bone line fix... get it?

    well, as is his perogative, he took it down when someone in the peanut gallery wasnt behaving. (which is everyone's perogative that posts their build. lord knows i wish i could unsee a lot of them) and so now we are treated to the el Diablo picture instead.

    now back to your regularly scheduled programming...
    carry on.

    Coming from Reno? You'll have too come up with a good gambling story to replace the standard "gave him X dollars"

    AHHH, the swoop. I'm a fork guy myself, "Your forks should be tucked in, close to the main body of the bike. This increases the aggressive look of a cafe racer". Yep, I like my forks pulled in, tight and twitchy I always say.

    Fortunately, that look can be attained quite easily and quickly by t-boning a Buick at 30 mph.....

    Well fuck me, here I've been thinking that the angle of the fork was related to how the bike steers. Turns out, it's to make it look good! In fact, the entire reason the bike looks the way it does is to make the bike look good!

    That's what happens when you have a designer explain why a bike looks the way it does. No, Mr Designer, these features you're touting did NOT originate to satisfy your rules of design. Well, not ALL of them anyway.

    And your "cut off" points that say the bodywork shouldn't extend past the rear axle? IMHO bikes with seats/tail sections that short look like shit. I know others here disagree but it just looks fucking stupid to me to have the wheel sticking out past the back of the bodywork that far. Ride it in the rain for a while and see if you can figure out why.

    I'm breaking one of my own rules by posting on a forum before noon so I'll shut up before I start talking abtou my lawn. Which really needs to be mowed. Which is one other thing I hate. BAAAHHHHHHH! I'm going back to bed. Wake me when the chocolate covered donuts get here.
