    It's a nice bike. Cool glowing tuning forks, but I doubt that'd make production. Can't wait to see a production version.

    Well it's about time! I don't like the tail so much but it a a rough prototype, once it it cleaned up and outfited with a decent headlight and guages, switches etc... it will take shape to be an awsome bike.

    I had a 86' v-max up to this summer when I switched to the FJR. The Vmax always left a grin on my face but I grew tired of the bias-ply tires, carberation, limited fuel range, heavy, so-so brakes and handling, etc..

    If I could have a few bikes the v-max would still be one of them tho

    Sparring speed is a matter of simple physics:
    The height of your flight is inversely proportionate to the mass of your ass.

    It's changed but basically the same. Still looks too much like it was on steroids for too long and is muscle bound beyound belief. The size and added on radiators is a clue to the heat developed by burning the gas needed to make that level of power.
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.

    I like it. I'd like to see it in real life, but its not something that would make me trade in the streaker for.
    I wonder if it handles any better in aggressive conering than any of the pervious years?
    When speeding run from the cops, it's a lesser infraction.

    I don't know about you guys, but i think the big ass chrome intakes on the side are butt fuckin ugly... BTW, are they just cosmetic, like in previous years? if so, i think they should go... rest of it looks sweet though...

    Edit: would look much better aircooled, without the huge rads...

    1. Between the ages of 16 and 18, she is like Africa, virgin and unexplored.
    2. Between the ages of 19 and 35, she is like Asia, hot and exotic.
    3. Between the ages of 36 and 45, she is like America, fully explored, breathtakingly beautiful, and free with her resources.
    4. Between the ages of 46 and 56, she is like Europe, exhausted but still has points of interest.
    5. After 56 she is like Australia, everybody knows it's down there but who gives a damn?

    anyone I can lean against
    I think it is a futuristic VMAX concept bike and nothing more. The hard plastic seat and the unfinished lines around the whole bike give it a away.

    This bike is no where near a finished production bike IMO.
