    never mind that....
    ...that seat has got to be uncomfortable regardless of WHAT you're wearing!

    (BTW - I played the bagpipes in High School....and yes, I wore a kilt. And no, nothing was worn under the kilt. Back then, everything was practically brand new!)

    Great looking bikes, but I'd be afraid of Jim always smelling the seat.

    That bare aluminum seat with a kilt and no undies kind of scares me. Imagine accelerating hard and slipping off the back of the seat (because there is no stop) and then hitting the brakes hard to catch yourself. Now picture a guillotine.

    Hopefully they don't ride below freezing. You think that flag pole shit was bad?

    That guy is a member over on customfighters. As the bike demonstrates, a bit of a nutter! Quite the seating position on that SV; I wouldn't recommend riding in the wet either, unless you like dirty water sprayed up your kilt!
