I like it. I miss the bigger front wheel, but I too would love the extra power.

Looks pretty cool with the chain. Nice suspension and wheel mods. The GP exhaust is a little ridiculous, but without it, I don't suppose the chain would be as prominent.

That was the worst article! The author spent more ink trying to be comical than describing the bike. I would love to hear more about the technical details and how it rides.

I would like do some of those upgrades. Kudos to Ness for generating interest in the Vic baggers. Hopefully this will add to the snowball.

As far as aesthetics I am not a fan, but he makes a lot of bikes and needs variety. Remember OCC. The were gaudy, but they kept striving to make it different and usually at the expense of good styling.

I cant remember the name of it but in that episode arlen, cory, and zach had a buildoff with 14 xc ness's to see whos would win. If you havent seen the show your not missing much, the show more bs then building, and its pretty horrible as a show.
