    Apsolutelly unnecessary. But, that's one sick bike!!!
    Incredible craftsmanship, boat load of cash spent on it.

    Someone sells them right around here. Called "Boss Hoss" I think. They even have a big block and a Viper V10 version. I see quite a few of them going by my shop and at cruises. They are put together really well. You should see them tilt when sitting still and revved! You'd have to be really careful riding one, and I'm sure they'd take a while to get used to, but I'd like to have the chance!

    Been made now for 20+ years. Saw one at Daytona Bike Week in 1982.

    Young guys that ride them are referred to as organ donors.

    I've ridden a normally aspirated one of those and not once during that experience did I think "This really needs a turbo".

    Very impressive fabrication skills and craftsmanship......Conversation piece, NOT
    transporation.

    I cant imagine how dangerous that thing could be when "romped" on.....

    I don't think that's a Boss Hoss. Then again, it may just be a newer version than what's around here. I sat on one once but never fired it up. They cook your legs in the summer and have massive torque steering at low speed. A little at speed too. The closest I've seen to one of those is the old Honda CBX straight 6 bikes. I did grab a hand full of throttle on one of those once. Never again.

    Cool, but all that weight would see to sort of defeat the purpose of having a light bike to throw into corners. Good for drag racing, I suppose.

    GM's Powertrain Engineering HQ in Pontiac had a big block Boss Hoss in its lobby for a while, back in the early 2000s. A 502, I think. Haven't seen it in a long time though.
