502 Boss Hoss

Well let me start with, The Boss Hoss is a bad azz bike. A friend of mine called me out on the Busa and i accepted, not knowing really what i was up against. He had the 502 ci Boss Hoss and that thing is a beast of a bike! We rolled out at 50 mph with me in second and him in first, ( remember, they only have a two speed tranny,) and he stayed with me til i hit third and i pulled on him pretty hard. Now remember, my busa is heavy for a sport bike, but that Boss Hoss was about 1400 lbs. I would hate to see what that bike could do with with afew miles too open it up?? Anyway, it was a rush to run against that beast or a bike, we plan in doing it again some time after he makes a few mods, so again, let me say, that the Boss Hoss is one of a machine!

They can't run the 1/4 because they spin the rear wheel and get no where.

Definitely not my cup of tea.
