It's gotta be hell on the wrists to ride too. I sure hope that shock sags a ton.

It's ok I suppose, it's definitely got shock appeal. I don't like how high the tank and seat are, they look like they'd just snap apart once there's weight on them.
I liked these two Ducks from last month's Cycle World, they're totally awesome and a lot less "obviously" radical:

I would sport this Duc, its freaking really kickin, but its not a cafe. It seems everyone who puts a clip on handlbar on the bike they automatically call it a cafe.

Those other Ducs are really really nice bikes blackstar...

Aren't they? They're SO modified, but they don't look it.
I like the exhaust on the red one.
But the Black one is something I could ride everyday. It's perfect.
I'm trying to do something like that with my B44.
