The guy on fire

Stefano Mironov from Oregon found a very peculiar way to introduce his bike to the web community. He set fire to his jacket and rode his 1977 XS750 in a tunnel... This is his description of the (inazumized) pics: "Short photo session doing something I've always wanted to do. Light myself on fire. Had a blast".

Stefano Mironov dall'Oregon trovato un modo molto particolare per introdurre la sua moto per la comunità web. Ha dato fuoco alla sua giacca e ha guidato la sua XS750 del 1977 in un tunnel ... Le foto (Inazumizzate), le descrive così: "Un breve servizio fotografico che mi riprende mentre faccio quello che avrei sempre voluto. Darmi fuoco. Una favola!"

Cristin, Thomas Parrish‘s girlfriend, decided that she was no longer satisfied with being a passenger on a motorcycle, she wanted to be a pilot. “Being the amazing boyfriend that I am – Thomas says - I decided I would build her something to get her up and running, and maybe even look cool too”. The bike under discussion was listed as a café racer project. But, according to Thomas, owner of Kustom Research in Buffalo, it certainly was a project but not yet a cafe racer… But now the project is finished...

Cristin, la fidanzata di Thomas Parrish, titolare della Kustom Research di Buffalo (NY), aveva deciso che non era più soddisfatta di essere passeggera in moto: voleva essere un pilota. "Essendo il fidanzato incredibile che sono - dice Thomas - ho deciso di costruire qualcosa da farle guidare, e magari anche qualcosa di figo". La moto in discussione era in vendita come progetto di café racer. Ma, ci racconta Thomas, era certamente un progetto, ma non ancora un cafe racer… Ma ora il progetto è completo.
