tha Misfit is an extremely affordable Cafe' style motorcycle. The bike has a DOM main tube that mates up to a boxed section that supports the counter-balanced motor, the large front boxed section adds a great deal of rigidity to the frame and the motor acts as a stressed member. The rear swing arm is a boxed section swing arm for rigidity. The rear shocks have remote reservoir, and the rear springs come with pre-load adjuster to adjust for proper sag. The inverted forks do a nice job of absorbing the bumps, while still keeping the ride sporty. The rear cowl removes for 2 up riding when needed. There is a center stand for those times when parking is tight, or the bike needs some maintenance. The large front and rear slide style brakes stop this light (under 300lbs) bike very quickly.

tha Misfit on the East Bank of the Flats
Cleveland's party scene use to thrive in the flats. It was for all intents and purposes the place to get drunk, and the place to be seen in the 80's to late 90's. Well a few too many drunk people fell into the river that surrounded all the bars and bar patios, and a few of them unfortunately drowned, mix that with a few murders, and the flats quickly became desolate. This is what is left, and the party has moved up the hill to West 9th, to east 4th. This is our Ode to the Cleveland Flats.

Our test rider was asking if it was OK to pull some wheelies. Of course, the bike is a Misfit....

ode to the flats 2
We miss you come back soon, the flats are desolate.
discussing the old railroad bridge
Cleveland has many bridges because of the many rivers (mainly the Cuyahoga) that run right through the city. The Cuyahoga also separates Cleveland's East side from our West side. CCW is from the west side, but we made the evil switch to the east side several years ago.

sometimes trouble just finds you on a Misfit.... No lofting that front wheel in front of cops. We found out that will cost you 4 points quickly, even during a photoshoot........
