That sums up the spirit of Cafe Racer for me - nimble, sure footed, great sound and classic lines.

I think the point is you CAN'T see where you are going and the impending crash is Mother Natures way of eliminating the weak of mind that created this thing.

Actually that's not far from what Wikipedia has to say about the Bosozoku:

"The word bōsōzoku is also applied to motorcycle gangs, who share an interest in modifications (often illegal) for motorcycles, such as removing the mufflers so that more noise is produced. These bōsōzoku groups also engage in dangerous or reckless driving, such as weaving in traffic, not wearing motorcycle helmets, and running red lights. Another activity is shinai bōsō (市内暴走) speeding in city streets, not usually for street racing but more for thrills."

I think what would really finish these bikes off would be a bronze bust of Darwin in Bozo the Clown makup peeking through the 13' high wind screen. Makes the 1%ers look sensible.

Looks ok to me, clean, neat and simple, nice to see someone singing their own tune rather than just humming along to someone else's.
