but a lot of the time i need to stay on the gas while braking !

thats the problem with these over clean solutions IMO..

i kinda like the Indian Larry philosophy,, he felt that levers, cables, oil lines etc were all part of the character of a bike and you remove them you end up with an aseptic scoot..

but then i dont know fer chit coz Joker aint posted yet

I think they look awesome, now how easy it would be to ride with that set up I don't know but on some scoots they'd deffinitely look the bomb!

thats the one thing that does my head in with Exile,, they take the whole clean lines thing too far.. and end up looking like an unfinished airfix kit..

theres nothing wrong with levers, in fact Joker Machine have turned the whole lever/switch gear thing into art

its a motorcycle,, quit trying to make look like petal bikes
