    I personally don't care for crotch rockets. I like the classic style of the Harley-Davidson. But what I really want is a Boss Hoss !!!!!

    Yeah I saw the video. He eats it big time... but he lives. He must have been feeling that one though for months afterwards though... /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif

    Well to fully understand that shot you have to understand rocket boy was ridding a wheelie and lost it. He started to wobble dropped the front wheel but it was to late. They were going at a pretty good clip too before he hit the pavement like a wet sock. The vid was pretty freaky because the guy with the video camera damn near got taken out also.

    I never liked the way ya lay over the tank on a crotch rocket. I prefer the more laid back ride like on a Harley. Ride a bike for 500+ miles strait and you'll know what I mean. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Agreed. Laying on the tank doesn't look like much fun to me. Fast is fun, but LOUD is even more fun /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    It's on the net. Saw a link for it somewhere, I think it was PBB. Been close to a year so I have no idea where.
