THE NEXT BIG THING... predictions



Hey Guys and Gals. In the last few years we've seen the 300+ rear tires, flat black paint, Rat bikes and Bobbers.

What do you think will be the next trend?

Bikes that run on sunflower oil, electricity or maybe the flux capacitor. But we'll still be talking about bobbers...

Cute little scootters, all the yuppies will dump those suvs and Texas will look like some of the asian countries I visited with entire families on one vespa. Last year I was the idiot with bugs on my glasses, now I am the guy that can actually afford to go somewhere. Sportsters Rule !!! Even the BT guys are whinning about poor fuel milage.

Sidecars! With the price of gas going up and up, you'll want to be maximizing passenger room on your bike. Sidecars....and passenger trailers even...and and...people holding onto the passenger trailers while wearing rollerskates. The list of wheeled contraptions trailing from your bike will be a clear indication of your status among bikers and men! Start blacking out your radio flyers...or chrome them up if the notion tickles you.

Price of electricity doubles, price of ethanol doubles...

as the dependence on foreign oil drops...

just trade one price for another.
