One of my French customers has just sent me the photos below of his almost completed bike.  What a work of art:

Is it a sin to say I ride a sport bike?  I have a black SV650s.

No, I don't think so. But as I don't have bike at all and own more IH than a small bike club could wear, I am no authority. I'm sure some people have issues with Sport Bikes but ride, wear, and do what "you" like. That's how I roll...

PS - If I did ride a bike, that one at the top that Giles posted of his French customer looks pretty on point!
RIP Geo

I'd like to claim this as my own, but unfortunately it's not.  Haraki has it sitting in his shop at the moment:

Well, here is the motorcycle I was talking about in the above post.  It's a 2006 Suzuki SV650S.  I love the V-twin sound of this thing once I uncorked it with the carbon can.  I snapped a few lame pics yesterday on what is likely one of the last days of the riding season here.

I played with that baby today.  Haraki says it is "The Company Bike", all sales call from now on will be done on that beast!  I took loads of pix and a few movies today, will post ASAP.  I will ask Hiro what boots he wears.  G.................

You don't have to tell me I'm crap at videos (I already know), but here's one I took when I was in Japan last week:



And this one is even crappier because I do not know how to rotate a .mov - any help appreciated (I don't have Quick Time Pro):

My friend Wes (http://hellforleathermagazine.com/) wearing the Iron Heart 301s jeans (and Mister Freedom Mulholland Master jacket) on a product review set for the new Deus bike.









Thanks to Grant for sending me the outtake photos.
