Sheite! After seeing the Desmo, I don't think I would have even noticed what it came out of!

If he has enough money to buy a Desmo then he by now probably also learned to give a sh*t about what other people think simply because he can. The mini van idea is actually pretty cool as it's easy to drive, enough storage inside, doubles as a track side bed etc.

Oh and most importantly: it just plain works

I could see why someone would do that. A 75k bike would be much easier to steal than a 75k car... even with lowjack or any type of security.

No one would pay much attention at a beat up mini van.

Can't really think of a better way to keep an eye on your bike.
I know theres a few members on here that have opened up their trailors after a long trip only to find a scene of total carnage due to a few loose straps.
