Custom Cruisers

I just got back from a BMW Motorcycle Rally in Paonia, Colorado. What a great time. With all manner of machines and riders in attendance, there was plenty to keep me occupied. Here's one bike that caught my eye, and it isn't even a BMW.

At first glance, it looks like a fairly ordinary cruiser. Maybe with custom flames perhaps.

But then your eye catches that permanently mounted spare fuel tank on the back.

So you start wondering why this cruiser needs an extra fuel tank. And then you notice the turbo. The very large shiny turbo.

I never found the owner of this machine, but undoubtedly it's a thrill to ride. It may also be the largest ratio of turbo size to motor I've ever seen.
