American Legion Rider
I saw this picture on another site and my back immediately started to hurt. I'm sure glad the young can still ride these kickers. I couldn't make it around the block.
If I remember that low tire pressure didn't help that much, mine would bounce more with lower pressure. Guess there really wasn't a happy medium with the old hardtail.I used to ride a hardtail and have the bad back to prove it. Low rear tire pressure was the only suspension you had.
It's also quite likely that she doesn't give a F-k what you think:devil:It's strictly a "look at me" poser machine.
Winkle-picker is a shoe with a long pointed toe. Had them back in the 50's.After a short visit to the big city, I noticed that stove pipes, and even some winkle pickers are back in style. Can the younger folk tell me what they are.
Us youngins like the straight pipes. That Buell I had was so loud it could have probably lived a double life as a siren of some kind. :devil:It's not just her back that's taking a beating......her ears are not going to be happy with those straight pipes.

Had them back in the 50's. Stove-pipe is probably a reference to a style of pants. A tighter
version of straight-leg pants.[/QUOTE
Had a pair of black dress shoes for church 40 yrs ago, great for assaulting cockroaches
I saw that bike and I'm thinking it has to be an old Sporty. When you really think of how hard
a ride you get, the p-nut size gas tank makes a lot of sense, I don't think many would ride
beyond a tank full on any day.
I love loud pipes as well, but those have been chopped and wrapped. They would have to go and be replaced by a quality set of good pipes.Us youngins like the straight pipes. That Buell I had was so loud it could have probably lived a double life as a siren of some kind. :devil:
But oof...good on her. I'm only 26 and my back is hurting just looking at that bike.
