Two wheels with style
I loves me some motorcycles. I especially like customized motorcycles, ones that don’t look like every other Honda or Yamaha or even Harley that rolls out of the factory. Customized motorcycles became a booming trend after Jesse James with West Coast Choppers got big and Orange County Choppers got their own TV show. This was great for the Harley riding types, and was a boon to the industry as everybody wanted their own chopper. Victory Motorcycles hit the market with factory bikes that look like customs.
All well and good for guys who want cruisers. What of those who prefer riding sports bikes? They were left to hacking off parts to trim down for racing and adding aftermarket gear that makes the bike go faster, but adds no style.
The change has come. Bikes like Pantera’s P-007 concept and Ecosse Moto Works’ Heretic are bringing style to going fast and living dangerously. I am more of a cruiser guy, but I sure wouldn’t mind having one of these beauties.
Of course, all I could afford was an old rat bike. And mine’s been broken so I haven’t been able to ride.
