He'* done a lot of growing up after he left OCC, and it was the best thing he could have done. Sr. held him back. All Sr. has now is Jason, and he'* just a computer guy. His plans tend to have problems that the guys need to correct. Sr. is a clown, he barks orders, picks up a wrench, complains about Jr. and how he does nothing and takes credit. Then turns around and he does that very same thing. Look at the bike I built. If you want to get down to it, Jesse built his bike, the other two have teams. In the end, IMO, Jesse built the same thing he always did, a beautiful bike, but not different. Sr. failed to read the memo, this is a bike build off. He tried to hard to be different. And Jr. built a unique bike, like he always does. So who won comes down to what you expect. Old school, Jesse hands down. A great bike, Jr. Sr. wasn't even in the contest.

I didnt like jesses bike, sure it looked neat but seriously who would want to ride it? you're sitting way back folded in half with your arms way up, you have to look around it to see, it has to be nearly impossible to make a turn without swinging wide or using one hand. and here he is saying "oh lets see who can go further faster" jrs bike, sure its tank was small but he built it for looks and its still practical, given if you're only driving on a short cruise. It looked like a comfortable ride. I used to like jesse and occ back in the day but now seeing jesse act the way he did and building what he did i am not impressed hes a complete "you know what" now in my book and the only one with a good head on their shoulders is junior.

Was talking to a coworker today about this. He found it funny about how Jesse ripped on Jr about his bike not being drivable. But Jesse' bike is totally undriveable. You can't see over the gas tank, much less the handle bars. Seeing the road is a good thing on a bike. Then top it off with the fact you can't even turn with it.

eh, it would be ok on sweepers. useless in the city though. i was always taught to countersteer. meaning push away from you on the right side to lean right and turn right. gives alot better control at speed.

That'* how the MSF teaches, and most racing schools. Way more effective.

Been riding bikes sense I was around 7 years old. Choppers ride and steer different. My dad has a trike, and that'* different as well. I've ridden a lot of different bikes, choppers, trikes, California sidecar, crotch rockets, etc. I like the big touring bikes, like the goldwing.
