I am not a fan of the sitting bird look of these bikes. It has been the one of the latest styles, using hydros. I have seen some wonderful paint jobs. Those bikes are nice to look at. I guess I would need one bike to look at and one to ride! Wait, if I am out riding a bike, I am not home looking at one. While riding, I don't really see much of the bike anyways. Maybe I can join the club where guys bring their motorcycles to the driveway, sit in chairs on the driveway and stare at their bikes...nah, I wanna ride.
We have a couple in one of the riding clubs I hit the road with down here.
They only sit that low when parked, actually no kickstand just 2 rubber pads on the frame, air bag rear suspension on the ones here.
When cruising through town they will drop them as low as they feel safe riding.
But when we hit the road or mountain curves they will raise them up, both have more clearance then my C50T.
So I guess it is really a "Looks" thing for shows...ect.
Not my thing either, but then again, not my bike. (Image before he had all the custom work painted)
