Now that would have been quite nice when I was about 30 years younger and a hell of a lot more supple!!!
After me you're first :twisted:

Frank,

The tail follows the lines of the frame and rear wheel perfectly!

...On second thoughts...Looking carefully at the over all styling. Particularly the bodywork......It's not just the tail piece that doesn't do it for me. I think the tank has some issues too.....then i'm thinking, Would that fairing look right without that tank etc....
Hmm....I conclude in my own mind that that bike is beautifully crafted (that's a given...no question about that...)...but...as a whole, the bike doesn't quite aesthetically gel.

But then again...to the person/people that worked so hard on crafting it, it will no doubt be a triumph of their vision.........Yep....It's definitely a Triumph :D ..........with MV Augusta style exhausts. 8-)

....I really like those exhausts.....SEXY!!!!

Thats a good styling does to you, make your mind curve!
I think its very measured and through thought, beautiful crafting!
