    Yeah, cool, these Germans ;-). But the problem with these Germans is, that they have so many rules and regulations, that, as soon as the guy touches the road and leaves the private area, they'll bite his a... in a way he'll never forget! ;-))) Nice hobby for him, nice video, but that's about it.

    Nice tribute bike for Baron Von Richthofen. Not sure I'd like that primary belt right under my thigh, though!

    That engine base price is about $25,000. Top rpm is 2500. The HP rating is deceptive. It's all torque. It is supposed to be turning a huge propeller. Somebody has ALOT of disposable cash.....a lot of free time.... I don't see how that would ever run more than a few minutes without a propeller blasting it with cooling air. Neat build.....except for the exposed primary belt next to your leg....that's stupid.

    Cool. But about as useful as fashion show clothing. And if anyone has been in or near a DeHavilland Beaver when running, you know how loud this thing must be.

    Holy Crap!!! It looks like a airplane engine. Doesn't look like it has much in the way of ground clearance. He may scrape the yellow line if he crosses lanes.

    Reminds me of the Viper engine motorcycle, cool bike, but not really made for riding. Having said that, if someone wanted to give me one, I'd be all smiles!!
