Yes, you say that it's "wild looking;" have you formed an opinion whether you like what you see or not yet?
no that is basically a 3/4 shot.

this is a side shot and you can't see the dynamics of the entire nose from the side.



yes I love it.

I'm late to the party. RL's pictures started at post 2593, on page 173... fantastic, thanks RL.

Cruiser tires? Are you objecting to the extra width?

KTM has done the same stupid thing with the new 1190 Adventure.

The first thing Joe Pilcher did before he left for Madagascar was have the hubs re-laced to 990 size rims.
