I'm thinkin' that photo would wind up as a front cover for the Concourier.

Me, I'm gonna go for the rat bike award, I have just the windshield to compete.

I figured you'd like the pic that you took and I stole from your collection.

Nice rat bike, I have no hope of topping that, so I guess I will install the Rifle that is on it's way.

The windshield has been replaced, I still have the old nasty one with the sticker. Onna these days, I'll put some heat to it and move it to the new one.

BTW, that photo was taken by Brian Snowberg (aka 2fast) at the Perkins in Forest Lake, MN. on our way to the VBR. The sophisticated re-engineer and repair held up well for the rest of the trip, which included going over Superior and on to Ottawa then dropping down to Floriduh.
