Why artists should stay away from bikes. Especially Ducati 1198s

A Danish artist has produced 10 special edition Ducati 1198s under the title 'Kill me Fast'. Of the £62,500 bikes Kristian von Hornsleth  says: "It is precisely the bikes' blend of beauty, speed and death, which inspired me to include this 'scuplture' in my artistic work.

Ignorant Artist?

And I thought bikes were about transport, convenience, freedom, pleasure, economy, engineering etc...

This guy has the usual mal-informed, media hyped, stereotypical pre-concepts of speed and death.

Best thing for him is a visit to the shrink and sort his bonce out.....Oh, and the bike looks like sick bag...

Far up his own backside

"Kill Me Fast". I would if you did that to any more bikes. It's as bad as the joker that did "unmade bed". I've seen a Ducati 1198S in simple "Ducati red" and that looks like a piece of art. Tosser. Jackson Pollocks (cockney rhyming slang) ?  How about James Hunt.

£62,500!? I'll sell you one for half that much (in advance, plus the price of a box of crayons), although I'll be weeping at the sacrilege.

Sadly these so-called "artists" seem to move in a circle of fellow con-men, sycophants and the insipid rich, so common sense won't prevail. Appalling.
