Sounds like it might be a really good deal then.

you got them for a "steel".....steal

and "load" pipes.....loud


and whats with dr j's constant random food comments?
You will definitely be riding at the back of the pack when we go on our trips. Those pipes are louder than my Vulcan by far. Wear those ear plugs.

It is the weekend and I am on here. Yeah those pipes are loud glen I definitely could barely hear my bike running it just sounded like a whine. But it's a super nice bike. By the way there loud enough to set car alarms off. there is a poker run in the morning for the Vetrans home but it looks like rain again the bike show is suppose to start at 12:30 pm if anyone wants to go on the poker run and there is no rain let me know or just ride up to the bike show.

Loud Pipes Save Lives:headbang

YouTube - McLean V-8 Monocycle (Crash)

crash is at 3:00 min mark. ouch.. Didn't think that you could high side one of those...
Looking at the guy riding the "bike" makes me think it doesn't turn worth a damn either considering he kept putting his feet down. Doesn't look practical at all. Guess it is just a gimmick.

of course it isn't a practical idea. The big wheel doesn't provide enough of a gyroscopic effect to provide the necessary stability and the floating hub/rider seat/engine prevents fast acceleration or braking - you'll just spin around the inside of the wheel if you dump the clutch or nail the brakes (which is why he crashed). How stupid is that meathead for riding in a half helmet and no gear.

Hey guys, So I was keeping my eye out for a new sportbike to get, a little larger this time, and a friend told me about this. :)

I stopped by today, no-one was home, but I took a picture and got a number to call.

2006 Kawasaki Ninja 500.
600 original miles
looks like they are asking 1,500.

Sounds cheaper than any I see on ebay or anything, and was thinking this could be a good bike to get for the next year or two.



Just want to double check and make sure you guys don't think this will be too small.

BTW, bike looks like it has been down once, either very slow, or maybe lost balance while sitting on it. Has some minor rash, not too noticeable.
