Sr vs Jr

Who do you think built the better bike?

Edit: Wish Discovery would have posted better pics of the bikes.

Pics are humorously small but Juniors bike is clearly the winner on looks. I was shocked by the landslide results however.

I am pretty shocked as well. I thought it would be pretty close.

They should have also made it a blind test to really find out who had the best design, meaning don't tell us who made it - just pick the bike you like best.

I believe its more of a popularity contest at this point. Everyone likes JR, including me.

My issue w/ Jr's bike is the seat section doesn't flow into the rear wheel. I know it has to do with the hydraulics, but it just looks like two different visions and nothing connecting/continuing the theme between the two areas.

Both guys are complete tools, however I don't think the poll is accurate, both are great looking bikes but I can't see how 1 has over 200000 votes and the other f all. Something smells fishy here, I wonder if Jr has been sitting down and voting with his shop boys for a couple of days non stop.

Complete landslide in voting and bidding.

For as much as Sr like to say PJD can't create anything as technologically advanced, Paul shut that thought down quicklike. Wasn't any validity to it anyway.

Exactly what I thought! I know its an "old school" type bike, but he needed to build something to fit the look of the CTS-V, and that was not it.
