Bikes from Afghanistan

While they clearly have a different sense of what constitutes an acceptable farkle, you have to agree these Afghans like their motorcycles!

I don't like making plans for the day....because then the word "premeditated" gets thrown around in the courtroom.

Re: Bikes from Afghanistan

I love the rack/foot board setup on the second one - the Pamir. And that engine guard is awesome. Can we get Ari to put those on his LT?

Re: Bikes from Afghanistan

The engine guard was made out of plumbing pipes welded together. The prayer rug for a seat cover tells you something about how they drive over here.
