For those of you who may have read Bob Steele's articl in the latest issue of HACK'd, here's a picture of his "racing magneta" K100 / EML.

For those who didn't see the article the basics of the story involve a campground during Daytona Bike Week, Bubweiser, first seeing the rig after dark, under bug lights, thinking its candy apple red and waking up the next morning to find you've bought a rig that "looked like someone has attached Mary-Kays refrigerator to the side of a motorized oversized bottle of Pepto Bismal"

pictures from Boone Rally 2005










Up until that time had never even sat on or in a sidecar, and had to ride it home to NC. A good story

pretty funny story! It looks like a well set up rig. Makes me wonder what kind of a story he would have written if it had MC tires and no LL front-end! Smile
