Scaring the children and grannies now.

Here you go Tom, a pic for you. I finally got around to getting them on. With the pipes and the decals I'll be scaring the grannies and children will have nightmares about the evil, black beast bike.



Thanks go out to Gerhard for the idea.

I thought you were hiding the motor like Gerhard did.. I really like the teeth!

I have been thinking it would be cool to put some teeth under the headlights to make it look like a scary face from head on.

There was mention rcently that the more a bike looks like a face from front view the more drivers see it.. the facial recognition part of our brain does a great job at seeing faces in spite of lots of background clutter.

Looks sweet Ian.

I still want to hear those Holeshots really sing. Too much sand on Southwood for you to really crank it up.
