Seriously. I mean it can't be easy to control the scooter like that. I've seen some bad ash bikes that I would hit in a heart beat if it wasn't for the undrivable looking ape hangers.

I'm thinking of putting some on my Gixxer. Ummmmmmm, no I'm not. They look cool but I can't ride like that. Those that have them say they're quite comfortable.

I mean I can almost understand your hands being even with your shoulders,
your weight would be square like doing a pushup. But higher then your shoulders is just plain awkward.

This is a Death Wish, or upcoming suicide by another name. No chance at evasive action whatsoever. I don't understand why these idiots don't just play Russian Roulette...that'd even look cooler, too!
