I don't know anything about this other than I think I would look real good on it.

Don't listen to Nay Sayers Jim. Go ahead, sit on it and make that bike look better.

Thanks Pete, Paul just doesn't know much. He's always working on his bike.

Now about that bike. It sure does look like a serious canyon carver. It needs twin 50 cal machine guns poking out of that fairing, and maybe the next generation will have short stubby wings. A "Motorcycle - Jet Pack". Like Evil tried to invent.

The front end is slammed with the fender sitting on top of the tire.

That could be part of the design, so it doesn't need a kick stand.

It looks nice but that giant scoop behind the front wheel says "air brake" to me.

It may be open like a big air scoop. As I look closer it appears like I am seeing reflection off of something in there.
