The bags on the GTX-F are long, deep, and narrow. Alsop chose to make them out of fiberglass because of its ability to patched up easily.

It never hurts to have a little star power on your side. MindFreak star Criss Angel, sandwiched here between Big Bear Choppers' Mona and Kevin Alsop, has been a fan of BBC's work for quite awhile.
