THAT bike is worth nowhere near $3000.00.

The stereo is more powerful than the engine.

And what's the deal with the ever increasing size of these front wheels? Reminds me of the 1980's crown vic's we have running around on lift kits so they can stuff these over sized 20"+ wheels under them, usually in our urban centers.

The truth is, this guy is a closet BMW fan with their asymmetrical headlight design and he is selling this monstrosity so he can buy an S1000RR. Refer to photo #3.

Yep. I see it.

The monstrosities appear to be trendy. Imagine if something like that was your only motorcycling experience.
