A POST FROM CHRIS AT 'MOTORCYCLE ART' TODAY HAD ME FLASHING ON MY FAVOURITE BREAKFAST CEREAL . . . . THIS THING HAD ME IN PERMANENT WOODY MODE WHEN IT APPEARED BACK THEN . . . . FOSTER'S "SPECIAL K", STATE OF THE ART MEETS RESPECT FOR THE PAST.
Man, this thing will forever remain a design highwater mark for all the right reasons, sheer simplicity and cleanliness of lines and form being primary among them. This 'K' model from the sizeable mind of the head Salinas Boy is as stunning now as it was when it first appeared coming on for a decade ago, an ode to less is more there is nothing on this ride that is out of place, separate component parts form a seamless and cohesive whole, wheels, front end, 'bars, frame, motor, pipes, oil tank, guard all become one sexy, purposeful, perfect machine. I know the Blue Bike is one that so many rave up, and I love that too, but tip this into my breakfast bowl and I'd be right for life.
