Too much is never enough ! Bought this bike at Christmas 2007. 270bhp, 175 lb of torque, 0-100 in 4.5 to 5 seconds. You can destroy a tyre and 2 gallons of fuel in 20 miles but the grin lasts for days (in fact i'm smiling now) I did half a dozen Straightliners Drag race meetings with it but always kept it fully (perhaps that should read fairly) road legal, taxed, MOTd, road tyres and pump fuel. Finally let it go last September before it killed or bankrupted me. Just dont tell me your bike is fast.
