Some one please explain to me how this could possibly be comfortable. :?:

People ask us why we ride a motorcycle. For those who have experienced the joy, no explanation is necessary; for those who have not, no explanation is possible.

This guy lives near St. Louis. I've seen this bike parked out front of Shady Jack's in downtown St. Louis... It's a cool bike and the guy is small dude. MO has some of the most lax MC laws. My 19" apes on MY wing are shrimps compared to his. :D

Why do you think they call them Ape Hangers, It's obvious he really thinks he's cool. But should something go wrong well that's another story.

Part of me want's to insult this guy[ I don't do that], the other part wants to kick his ass[ those day's are over], and the last part wants to get him some help because I think he's a complete idiot.. :lol: I love the bike with the horns on it though... :D

Maybe this is where the saying "fashion over comfort" comes in. Its not actually a question of comfort for this man its actually a question of how he thinks this is cool! :lol: Its probably something subjective though so the mere fact that he goes out in the streets like that maybe he thinks its cool and he's happy with it so we are in no position to judge, after all beauty is in the eyes of the beholder right. He probably wants to get some attention, which he is successfully getting now that we are talking about it! :D

I think you are absolutely 100% correct, if he thinks it's cool , Well in his World, I think that's great....Some people go to great length's to get attention.....Just watch Monday night football sometime....I'm not passing judgement, just writing my opinion....I think he's an idiot..Afterall if you choose to look like an idiot you should be treated as such... :lol: Just kidding, I don't know this fella, I'm sure he's a great guy.... Confused a little but I'm sure he will grow up one day.. :lol:
