The Dude is making a much needed comeback! Solid, not aesthetically perfect, but very solid build. Nice one :beerchug:

Oh wow, I am taken by this bike. Seriously.

I would run black sidewalls, but thats a personal thing.

Wow...

Can you compare the ride to a few others that you have ridden?

Seems subdued, or is it sub-Dude...no no just kidding.
