I spent high school driving a car with a 1.9 liter engine. This bike's plant is an entire midsize bike engine larger.

I guess this is the best bike to get if you're going to tow a boat.

Ok, we can dog this all day but realistically, I'd ride the hell out of it given a chance. Bet you would too.

:withstupid:

I think they're neat. In a (f)un-necessary excess kind of way.
:burnout:
If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.

Brilliant ad  :bigok:

That original motor is the same displacement and looks alot like the 2.3l that was in my 74 pinto. The wheels and tires are bigger though.  :eek:  So is the HP.

I like the R version, in red! I like it better than the SE.

The GT is sweet looking too, but I can't deal with the forward foot controls.
