    That's just awesome! I saw one of those bikes a few years ago. I didn't realize how wide and heavy it was until I was face to face with the beast. I don't think I would ever feel truly comfortable with it. Do you ride it much?

        You should go for a demo ride in Daytona or Sturgis. Once you do... call the wife and apologize because you're gonna buy it.

        I'm not biased or anything, I've been riding since I was 4... this is the most comfortable bike I've ridden. I'm 6'-3 250 and I fit it nicely. My dad is 5'-11 and about 220 and he says he is too short for it. Which is why he built his own. The tire is about 12" wide and the weight of the beast is at crotch height, so the center of gravity is nice and low. 8 gallons of gas in that monster tank is heavy though

        I ride it as often as possible in the summer. Only about 1200 miles this year. I was having problems with it stalling for no reason and I couldn't diagnose it cause it wouldn't run. After I swapped out the fuel pump everything was fine.

        I've always been a fan of the v-max. Sleeper bikes.
        My best 1/4 was a very sad 11.2 @ 132... I was running on 7 cylinders because I drove all the way to the track in the rain, which was about an hour of downpour. [email protected] is the best in the 1/8th. Unfortunately this bike will spin for 1/2 the track if you're too aggressive and someone before you dragged water onto the track. It will spin the entire length of the track if you want it to

        After I put a DR on the back and some laughing gas... I should see low 9s. Its all about getting out of the hole and then letting 400+ HP do the talking on the back half of the track.

        My brother's mustang will be low 9s next season so I have to be able to beat him. He'll have 2x the power... but I'm a little less than half the weight. I'm just not going to be able to compete with his 1.3X 60' times.

          I'm 5'7" and about 145#'s . It felt like I was a little boy on Daddy's bike. I ride a nightster now. Before that it was the crotch rockets. Would love to ride/try to ride the Hoss though.

            Back in the day guys and gals were buying the V6 version. Once they were comfortable on one of those they would demo a small block, and their V6s were for sale the next day.

            In 01 ( I think )they started the 502 Big Block and a 2 speed transmission with reverse. The BB made 502hp and 502tq. Thats the tire smoker. I haven't gotten a single 502 bike to race me yet. Those guys are scared of them it seems.

            Companies like V8Choppers are putting 800+ hp DART engines in their choppers. Amazing bikes. if my retirement makes a U-Turn and climbs back up, I'll be looking for one of the choppers.

            5'7 and 145 is the perfect sport bike size. I had a ninja 750R for a summer, and I've been on a ton of other rockets... they are fun. To give you an idea of how this thing moves from a roll... I can leave an R6 behind by about 100 ft in about a second or 2.

                For sure... several people have asked why it doesn't have "Organ Donor" painted on the tank. It is clearly printed on my license... thats enough for me.

                    That's insane! I would love to see the guys face as he is getting down on the R6 and you are steady pulling on him.

                      Sucks to hear man. I've only lost a few close friends to bikes. Most of mine were on 4 wheels when they died. My dad is a lifer biker and he has lost more than I can count.

                      hehe. First time was a buddy of mine. I told him to go first because when I cracked the throttle I knew the ass end of the bike would kick out for a couple feet. I heard him hit 3rd as I was going past him... and then I couldn't hear him at all. I wound it up to about 150 on an empty highway and he gave up way before that. Even at over 100 it took him a while to catch up to me after I got off the throttle. Speeding is fine... but there is a time and a place for everything.

                      Like Greasy said... squids can ruin it for everyone.

                        150 with no windshield must have been a rush. Were you wearing a full helmet?

                          Saw this video on another forum, and thought it was the perfect example... Stay with it until the very end. It will be worth it.

                            Always a full helmet. The one I wear at the track is the one I wear on the streets. Always a leather, unless I'm sweating too much. Sweat in your eyes can be worse than not wearing a jacket. Always boots.

                            I'm not going to lie, I should wear my leather more on the rides home from work... but it just isn't worth being in 90+ degree heat sitting on a small block chevy motor with 10:1 compression and a 2'x2' radiator.

                            I can't watch the vid at work, I'm in the middle of something, but I'm pretty sure I saw that video. Some little guy tries to impress the judge and then wipes out in the parking lot? haha. I hate that guy.
