I helped him out with that!

I was horrified by the built in testicle remover!

BRUTAL! is what they should have named it.

Cool bunch over there, they sponsored me when I was dirt track racing.

I agree ! Just can’t understand the “dropped seat “ look.

Oh Oh.

I have to say I have that look.

But in my defense I RACE this sidecar. The lower center of gravity is important for me. Try t imagine a 10 foot high go cart.

But it makes no sense on a street solo. It DOES hamper gear changes and rear brake usability.





I have some considerable bulk/mass that needs to be as low as possible.
(Ok, I'm a fat Bast*rd)
