    I often wonder if the voices in my head ever get frustrated because I'm just too damn lazy to climb that clock tower.

    106 horsies at 5000 and 120 lb/ft at 3500.

    Wow...that's some pretty useful torque for a bike...roll the throttle and pull away like a locomotive no matter what gear you're in.

    Nice. I wish someone would design a sled (Snowmobile) that looked that good.

    Hi Bastid


    Nice machine.

    I do hope you have plenty of prior experience on Bikes before taking this beast on. A whole other level it is.

    Be careful. Trouble comes quickly on a Bike and 2nd chances are not the norm.

    regards

    Nice simple look. I'd love to get a bike, think that will be a moving out gift to myself whenever that happens.

    I know that you make deliveries, though not sure of what. That baby looks strong enough to be able to pull one of those motorcycle trailers around. Talk about cutting down on fuel expenses...

    Even if you only used it for the small stuff...

    Hi Larry, she is sweet yeah, i have had a few years exp on 2 wheels, albeit over 11 years ago and smaller power sources...
    1st bike was a '87 Honda V30 Magna 500cc V4(but this thing would haul like a raped ape)

    2nd one was a '91 Suzuki GS 500 E 500cc In-Line 2(slower than the V30 but handled muuuch better..and mine was red)

    3rd was an '86 Suzuki GSXR750 (cept mine was all bright white, blue custom seat and windshield)

    to be honest, im not worried about me, im worried about idiots and malicious ppl... thnx Larry

    Ken some days that might actually be feasable but most days i have at the very least half a skid of freight(office supplys) so the Suburban will have to suffice for now (better than a box truck)

    Duz that thing is crazy!

    YOS, if youve never ridden before, i cant explain the feeling... but its like no other! i highly recomend!

    FC lol

    I'd recommend you get rider pegs up front near the radiator. I have a cruiser and hated having my feet on the shift break pedals for long road trips. Also I don’t any stock in the company but look at “Leather Like“ saddle bags.
