You must have missed out on a shitload of fun bikes over the years.
Fast in a straight line is not my idea of fun. I can guarantee that thing still handles like ass. It's raked out, stupid long, and the swingarm angle is pretty bad.
The bike is about styling, and if that's what you like, fine. It's not about performance, which is what I like. In my mind it's still a turd.
This is a Roland Sands bike I can get behind. Something that's actually fun.
