For shame,.. for shame.

Nobody considers wheelbase and loadcenter?

If it rained, I'd want an extra fat gal standing on the pipes, hanging on as far behind the rear wheel as possible.

As big as it is, its got to be heavy... the fishtails act as wheelie bars when that back tire hooks up during a launch. I see the grind marks underneath them.

edit:rats Cotten beat me to it!

ok then, the "foo-foo" is a cleverly disquised foot-board and heat-shield combination so that the extra fat girl has a place to stand (and not burn her feet) while riding in the rain? That logic may actually hold up.

but, they could also contain oil spray nozzles, dual purpose....

Folks,

With most of the weight on the front axle,
It might take two fat girls to make it "hookup" in the rain!
