WTF? Would you ride this...?

I'm going to say...um, most definitely not. (And yes, I realize it is a concept bike).

Yeah, but who would ride a "bull" from behind ??? Like the young guy from Wyoming said, "....I was just helping that sheep across the barbed wire fence!"

Cheers,

John

Farkled probably WAY too much, but good 20' footer for sure. '96 KLR, '06 HD VROD, (girl friend hauler), '05 HD Electra-Glide, heh it's a HD and I'm old now ;-) and I'm proud of riding a 800+ pound bike at my age :-)

Anyone who would "help a bull over a fence" has my respect.

I'd ride it, slowly past the local bar, just to make all the Harely fags feel small and insignificant.

Hell yeah!!! I've ridden bulls (for 2 or 3 seconds) that would kick his red butt.
