Riding in style. Photo by Ryan Burns.

Your LoCO correspondent had just purchased a root beer and some pretzels at the Swains Flat Outpost on Sunday when we wandered outside to find this mean machine parked out front. Yessiree, that there’s a modified Tigershark jet ski, circa 1996, modified into a bitchin’ twin-axle four-wheeler. 

We tried to snap a photo of the driver of this bad boy — a rugged, white-bearded man in a straw cowboy hat — but damned if the dude wasn’t too speedy as he sauntered out of the store, mounted his ride and tore off like the outlaw he is. (That thing can’t be street legal.)
