    BTW, I've sent you a Major Award:

    1. That's okay, though it does now make me wonder if any crazed bike builder has ever stripped the engine of a RX-7 out and put it on a bike frame.

      And thank you for the recognition.

  5. I was going to say that torque steer must be hell, but all you have to do is crank the throttle and you'd be on the ground.

    1. Presumably the BMW type bikes have some way to deal with it.

    2. Dump this bike once and you can take it to the dump!

    3. Given the horsepower involved the bike might not be the only thing going to the dump.
