what is this

Home built motorcycle by some very enterprising individual. Who said the Connie is the best bang for your buck, this one rivals the FJR for the cheaper than a BMW crowd.

If it's got curves ride it.

At one level you somehow have to give 'respect' to this guys efforts - after all "a man has to have wheels!"

At another, you would hope he does a better job next time.

Anyone willing to take it for a test ride?
