Although the majority of bikes these days are of the vintage (Honda CB series) or high end (BMW and Ducati) kind, there is always a smattering of large baggers around.  In a way, this often surprises me.  But I should be accustomed to it by now, knowing that there is no better example of ‘it takes all kinds,’ than the streets of Brooklyn.

Wandering to our favorite ‘old-man’ pizza joint the other day (staffed by a nice old man from Italy who barely speaks English, and can make a pie to make your mouth water…), we stumbled upon this decked-out bagger, parked in Williamsburg.

This bike made me crave a seat this comfy in my apartment!

These bikes are always incredibly large, making me wonder how one navigates traffic with 800lbs under their ass.  These bikes always look very comfortable though, and I think that the seat alone leaves a pang of jealousy…

Still not sure what a Bagger is.  Check out the explanation HERE.
