    May 2022 BOTM

    Looks very nicely done! Not my cup o' tea.........but not my bike.

    Wonder how it would do hill climbing with those tires!

    When I die, just cremate me and put me in my GS tank. That way I can go through these carbs, one more time!

    Probably just needs the knobbies to get in/out of the storage facility to/from the pub. Tastefully done, I think.

      Those tires say "smooth" all day.

        Yep, I think of each of those little knobs as a very soft cushion, absorbing any little imperfection along the way. May be hazardous, so smooth be hard to stay awake while riding.

          I think it's an above average job along the GS bobber/Cafe lines. Better integration of the seat than almost all of them and it's not brown. Tires are a bit much for me but it's not my bike. Probably DOT knobbies. Maybe some Shiko bias ply 90/10 or 80/20 ADV tires instead.
