Rat Wing

Post by cbx4evr »

Recently attended a motorcycle ride in event at a local museum. It was very well attended and I even had an opportunity to test ride a 2019 Goldwing.

When I attend car shows my favourites are usually the rat cars. I just like the individual effort and the uniqueness of each build. Same goes for bikes. You see all kinds and ya they look nice but a Rat Bike really makes a statement about the owner. Thus this Goldwing build was my favourite of the event. Thought I would share it here. Clicking on the pictures will enlarge them.

"It´s a friggen motorcycle, it´s not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The wind noise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you s**t your pants every now and then. "

Thanks for sharing. I sure hope a youngster was riding it. No suspension and that seat doesn't look like it has much foam would kill my back and hips.

Thanks for sharing. I, too, am fascinated by Rat Cars and Rat Bikes. They are artistic expressions of a very weird type of artist.
While I love to look at them, I have no desire to create, own, nor to ride one further than the nearest Bike Show.
Variety is the spice of life.
