Michael Jackson Suzuki GSX-R at IMS

Custom Motorcycles

One might think the connection between the late Michael Jackson and motorcycles is tenuous, at best.

But, you might have forgotten that the Jackson boys once posed in Life magazine astride a herd of Honda Mini Trail 50 minibikes. So, it’s not completely inaccurate to call the now-deceased King Of Pop a motorcyclist.

Known as Jannette’s GSXR, this Michael Jackson dream machine was spotted Friday at the Progressive Insurance International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach, Calif.

The GSX-R features an Eye Candy Single Sided 240 Swing Arm, Custom RC Components wheels, chrome frame and sub frame, Eye Candy Billet Chrome Spike Kit, show lights, integrated Apple iPod and Alpine speakers, 7-inch LCD touch screen, custom mirrors, and Eye Candy Air Ride Suspension System.

The pictures speak for themselves…
