"That [bike's] a weapon!"

Postby UpWrong » 30 Jul 2019, 4:34am

Exclamation from the girl at the cafe stop on Sunday upon seeing my RANS with its full fairing parked by the ice cream stall. There was quite a crowd gathering. The kids at the jetty when I was unloading the bike from the small river ferry were pretty amazed too.

Shurely shome mishtake as those have the appearance of a mobile rack, employed to wrest secrets or confessions from heretics. And them saddles would shock Mrs Whitehouse!

Cugel, probably too conventional.

PS How would one employ it as a weapon? Is it like them crutches in that old film "The Jackal" ?

Link to photo below. When I said full-fairing I meant full length fairing rather than just an handlebar fairing, not front+rear fairings. But even so, it is an impressive beast in the flesh:

Is that an assassin's rifle I see in your down tube or are you just displeased to see me? Anyroadup, don't point that thing at me! :-)

It's "stealthed" due to the lack of a flag.
She probably didn't see you coming ......... :lol:

YMMV ......... :D
