Thanks for sharing. An awesome looking bike and love the jaws-like theme music played in the video.

Nice work. Don't like the Corvette badging though.

Agreed. But the Mako Shark nickname does refer to something about the body style that started in 1969, so I do see the connection.

Just don't think most folks will.

I see it. I just don't get why they try to connect car themes to bikes. That work is good enough to stand on it's own without trying to borrow a car's heritage.

Agreed 100%. Understanding it doesn't mean I approve. That is one amazing bike that doesn't need the Vette deal to make it a sweet ride.

Fantastic fairing, inner and outer. Lights on the bags, I'd pass.
