  2. I read about that in the latest AMCN, hell of a machine.

  4. Much bigger and three times the price of a Drysdale V8? And almost as pointless as a turbo busa, no thanks.

    I want one.....
    OK, I'll buy 3 more F800s, get a big rubber band, and tie them all together with a big rubber band, then I'll have an in line 8!

  6. Yes I think a Drysdale is a prettier bike.

  7. Always remember, if a thing is worth doing, it's probably worth doing to excess.

  8. The radiator is ugly as hell, and the low slung coolant pipes would last 5 seconds on a Sydney road. But I'd still take one for a spin :joyful:

  9. Wonder how badly it would handle?

  10. It handles quite well on the street and the track. Just not great at u-turns

  11. You Aussies clobber the Japs and you biatch about it? In the states we gots Harley Maybelson. Only Motus has stepped up to some sort of a modern motorcycle.

  13. So, how is the midrange for torque? Turbochargers are noisy and get on your nerves after a while. Scott's Busa.

  15. Impressive, but I can't imagine having to change the rear tyre every two weeks.

  18. No such thing as to much. I'm tipping this was NOT built for any other reason then, why the hell not build one, just because they could. That's a good enough reason for me. I would be thrilled to the core to see and hear this baby in action. (Insert extreme joygasm here).
