Evidently, the owner of this motorcycle installed this contraption to make riding his bike feel more like piloting an airplane.
According to Katherine B., who submitted these mind-boggling photos she took in 2002, “he rides very smoothly, despite the fact that he operates the brake, clutch, and throttle using the ropes and pulleys you can see on the handlebars.”
As for the epic cargo cage on the back, apparently “he’s always prepared–he brings everything he might need, everywhere he goes. He believes that putting all that weight on the back improves the handling.”
Diff’rent strokes for diff’rent folks, I suppose.
