Ok, I'm not a huge HD fan, and that's an understatement, but this is an interesting read with a video and pretty cool actually.

 I think even today they'd do just fine.

Well, that Venture has the heart (and guts) of the Vmax so not a slouch by any measure...
Meanwhile, these racing baggers look kinda cool but they always throw me in a weird feeling of alternate reality, I mean it's really just a marketing gimmick pushed to the caricatural extreme... then again, these kinds of "I'm free to be as over-the-top and kitsch as I like, this is Merka" are one of the most fundamental reasons I wanted to move to this blessed land. I'm not even joking. "If you don't like our kind of driving, move off the sidewalk" is one of my favorite David Lee Roth quotes...
Then again, I wish they put some flip-down forward footpegs, just as absurd as the bags at the back, to finish the look...
