Garage build
« on: February 12, 2018, 03:55:56 AM »

Yeah, so this is why I love (hate) this subject title.  Here's what some guy (Dice) built in his garage. 



You guys who walk into a dealer and buy a bike, and think you know all that shit?  Think again.

Seriously.  As nice a guy as you'd ever care to meet, too.  Totally self-funded, and he's kicking everybody's ass. 

Sorry for the "tone", but over the years we've been called tinkerers, garage- home- shade-tree builders, whatever.  It annoys the b'jeeses outta me.  I know a handful of guys personally who've built some of the most badass machines out there, and to call them "home brew" doesn't show them any respect.  Add that to the fact that some of them get on here and are criticized and "corrected" by guys who haven't built or designed anything, ever, and yeah, it's a raw nerve.  Hell, when the Livewire was going around, my own bike could beat it on speed, acceleration, and range, yet I still get that it's a "home brew" and I'm a "shade-tree mechanic".

"Custom Builds", "One-Off Customs", or something similar would be a vast improvement to the heading, IMO.   ::)
