    Wonder if he ever got over to the Kanc in NH. Came up on a guy on a loaded wing, two up, doin 80 a few years ago. He sure could make that fat girl dance. Rode behind him for a few miles because it was awesome to watch then went passed him.

    Well, he does say that he's injured, not able to ride. But I agree, doesn't make sense. When I see this type of project, I always assume 1: the guy is way upside down in the money into it, 2: the thing never did run right or do what was hoped for and lastly, it'll blow - the - fuck up, about the 3rd time you ride it...

    Careful, we have one our very own with a (damn near) WSBK spec RSV4 that I don’t think he rides. That said, I THINK he plans to track it. Eventually.
    I find tinsel very distracting.

    He said he's had multiple surgeries,,, chances are if he ate it on that bike, he wouldn't need surgery. I can't image what that's like when boost kicks in with 300hp..!

    But that is more an exercise in engineering, and iirc he said he would do track days, but not race

    This one feels like it's more bolt on fun stuff and less craftsmanship lol

    Looks like more than one in there - those things are worth a fortune over here right now, even in that condition (especially as it almost all there).
