    Saw one of these at the Dream Machines Car Show in Half Moon Bay, CA. The guy who builds them let my Girl sit on it. I thought she was going to flood hep panties when she twisted the throttle. This bike was BAD! Wish I had got a photo. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif/forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    Speak for yourself man, those are friggen sweet. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I suppose you're just jealous that they've got more motor than you'll ever have. How can you not like a bike that roasts a tire for 100+ feet. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    looks like a BossHoss Boss Hoss web page. They basically take a 350 Ci chevy and put a bike around it. They also can make them with 502's now. I think they have 3 forward gears and a reverse gear. Seen one in person. Big, ugly, but SOOOOO much power.

    roasting tires is idiotic. I'd rather be going 2 mph that 200. A spining tire is wasted traction, burnt rubber is wasted money. If i wanted to throw money away, I'd just toss the tire on a bon fire, be cheaper than buying a whole bike just to do it.

    Sorry man, I reread my post and maybe I came off a little hostile. I wasn't trying to be. I'll admit, I'm jealous because that's more engine than I'll ever have. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif
    And yes, I agree...they're quite impractical, but who says you have to be practical to have fun. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    a motorcycle is nothing more than a toy...anybody who says they NEED a motorcycle is most likely full of it. It's something you get purely for the amusement it gives you. Yes, there are people who that is their sole source of transportation, but they have fun on it dammit.

    I went to a v-twin dealer expo in indianapolis in february...i think i saw at least 3 companies who have v-8 bikes...boss hoss had the best display, but they've been around longer and have the name in v-8 bikes.

    i know the guys from big brute were there, those things are just monsters.

    i'd never ride one (i'm about 140 lbs), but i know a guy with a boss hoss, and it is just plain sick. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
