I saw this on the way home from work today. I know stretching out the sport bikes is getting popular but just like everything else I think its getting taken to far now. The back tire is wider than any I have seen on custom choppers even. Tell me what you think.

2 each his own.

Hey....whatever floats your boat. I'm sure the sportbike crowd looks at what some of us cruiser guys do and scratch their heads. Most sporbikers can't understand why I ride with apes. After I explain, I get a blank look.

Call me boring....I think they look better (and likely handle better) with the factory swingarm.

I don't like the look, but understand the reason. I wonder if he actually has the power that requires the stretch and tire or just to impress?

looks like a drag bike.

the Busa would definitely make for a good drag bike, and the extended swingarm would reduce it's desire to wheelie/flip.

But i agree, they do look stoopid on the street, and the Busa is a FUGLY bike at the best of times.


riding in a pink vest, with bright white tennis shoes and a handbag isn't really doing him any favours though... :lol:

I had a friend with a set up similar to this (chrome). I was not a big fan but he said this set up was designed so he wouldn't pop a wheely. That bike was so powerfull, it was a busa.

That is taken to an extreme but some of the stretched out rears with huge 300 tires look cool.

What do you tell them about why you ride with apes? I'm curious, too.

You can't say anything is ugly on this site, even if it's a turd on wheels dragging a string of toilet paper behind it. A year or so back I saw a chop with a skinny front tire with 300 on the back. Funniest thing I ever saw and butt ugle. I posted about it and caught hell. My personal opinion is that it looks goofy as h e l l and I don't have a problem saying it. I bet it handles like a turd as well. Anyway, you're not alone.

I'm sure he has his GPS set to "avoid all curves, turns, and roundabouts"

Going to say the baby-poo yellow goes great with his turd-like handling.

but if thats what he likes......

Yup, no one believes the apes are comfortable.

I like the look. I wouldn't own one myself, but it has that stars wars appeal to it. And btw, it's not a handbag, it's a man purse;)
