Hans Solo a.k.a. Party Jesus
"It's the bike that made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs. I've outrun Imperial starships. Not the local bulk cruisers mind you, I'm talking about the big Corellian ships now. She's fast enough for you old man."I was gonna call Hans' bike the Hans Device, but after he recieved the nickname Hans Solo, it had to be, of course, the Millenium Falcon. check this thing out: Hans sliced the rear section of the frame and brought the rear wheel foward about 2 inches, then de-raked the neck to 21 DEGREES! the wheelbase is super short making for excellent handling! the pictures don't really show how crazy this thing looks in person! The front end is off a 70's era dirtbike and the drum stops decent. At a gas stop the both of us swapped bikes and let me tell you, this thing is intense! every stoplight the front end is dying to come up off the ground, and at low speeds, if you let a hand off the bars the front end slaps back and forth. put the hand back on and it straightens out - it's more of a scare then anything, but it's not like you're gonna wreck because of it. I'd love to give more details, but i'd rather let Hans do all the talking. Hans, if you want to leave a comment about the details in the comments section, feel free too, I'm sure people will want to hear more about it. either way, this thing is bonkers!
Yup. We be on the INSTAGRAM trend too...
