Totally not my cup of tea. Looks like a combo poser / stunter bike, both of which I really don't like...

Don't get me wrong. I can appreciate the time spent on that bike, but it really just doesn't do anything for me.

I ride an Aprilia Tuono, a GSX-R600, and an XR650L...

The artist had to spend 1-2 weeks on that as long as that was the only thing he was working on. If he had other things then maybe a month. WOW Still...the work and time he put into it made the bike turn out great. Now it may not be for all of us here, but for someone it is what they wanted.

I don't know if I'd spend that kinda money on something like that that can be messed up in a matter of one spill. But it's definitely cool lookin

you'd be surprised how fast the graphic artists can bang that stuff out, have seen lots of TV shows on discovery channel, etc..showing the techniques they use...it looks sweet! but probably doesnt take as long as we might think. even for a beastly design like that.

True. I have seen those same shows. What we have seen are some nice yet basic designs and not a totally airbrushed bike like this one is. The shows on tv don't show how many ppl are behind the scenes helping JD(American Choppers) push out the finished product for Sr. and Jr.

Oh Hakuna Matata my friend, DJ WILL find me that perfect bike! Seriously though, I've already seen a few that I like and if I find one that isn't blue, I will turn it blue.

Speaking of avatars....

Shan, I LOVE yours. I really enjoy an awesome hockey game, though I'm less interested on television. Live hockey is my favorite sport and we're headed out in a couple of weekends to see the boys of my Alma Mater, Illinois, take on some poor, sucker school. College hockey is much more raucous (beligerent?) than NHL, minor league, whatever, but its all good.

Since I grew up in Chitown, I've gotta say, GO HAWKS! despite my likely-to-be-dashed hopes.
