Life has been getting in the way, but it's about time I got back on the Ironhead. I thought I'd have it done in the beginning of the year, but whatever. I plan on tooling up the new shop and not getting another project until I at least finish the XLCH.
I think I got this picture from the Le Container blog a while back (if you don't visit it, there are some awesome photos there). This thing is about as sexy as it gets as far as the style goes. It's actually one of those kind of bikes where I look at it and say, "I'd love to do that, but I have NO idea where I would begin." It's a very neat setup and whoever did it executed it perfectly.
If you aren't watching it, you'd better tune in on Velocity and check the schedules. It's amazing. I watched the SS last night and Michael Dunlop makes tossing around a 600cc bike look about as easy as taking out the trash. Riding a bike around that course at an average of 127 mph would scare the absolute bejeezus out of me. Keep in mind too that these are the actual streets on this island. You'll pucker your butt watching them.
Regardless of how scary it is though, there's not much sexier than Kawasaki green...
Well, unless you put gold Marchesinis on it.
