Custom motorcycle to carry surfboard

If Boing Boing is going to start posting motorcycles, can we please get somebody who actually rides and can recognize a build that has something distinctively unique about it? Unless Deus paid a promo fee, I’d expect Boing Boing could do better than something that looks like a repost from bikeexif. I know my gripe could be seen as(and partly is) anti-hipster-ism, but really, there’s a lot of interesting stuff to learn if you look at bikes that are ACTUALLY re-engineered. Tuning and accessories are not engineering.

If you can ride that at high speed, with that big finned outrigger airfoil on it, I’m very impressed.


#4

Shouldn’t the board be on the other side? Usually you mount from the kickstand side. Or maybe I’m just used to really tall bikes.


#5

Even if I was in the market for a surfboard carrying motorcycle, I’d have trouble buying a product whose name is synonymous with online misogyny groups.


#6

Wat? Deus ex machina predates the interwebs by at least a thousand years… first I’ve heard of any such synonymy…

Deus ex machina is the company that makes the bike. The bike itself is called the “red pill”.


#9

Ah, OK, I was googling the wrong bit. Thanks!

The red pill is a “Matrix” reference, of course, but google tells me some 11 year olds on Reddit use it to refer to their “no stinky girls allowed” clubhouse, or something like that. I plan to ignore them.

You’re missing out on both, and lucky for you, they’re both easy to learn!


#11

Looks simple enough to me.


#12

Agreed!

I understand it’s hell on gas mileage, though. The technology has come a long, long way:

At least you didn’t complain about the pipewrap or the Firestones.
