Anyone ever rode one of these....

BOSS HOSS 07 l
I was in New Braunfels one time and my dad and i talked to a guy on one. He was sayin how it pulled from the torque when he leaned down on it. He took off and hit it and it almost looked like the bike jumped sideways. Wonderin if any of yall have rode one or what you think bout them. I think they are overkill and scream for attention but are still bad .

i have ridden one w/ the 502 and ridden correctly they are worthless, from a 45-50 roll all you can hope for is that the back tire hooks, if it does, they still aren't as quick as a busa or zx14, if it doesn't, hold on and enjoy the rollin burnout at highway speeds

I rode one the first generation models back in the late 80s, it was a 350 and launched really hard, but back then they put all of the thought into motor, and none into the brakes
Its a great "look at me" bike....

And the point of this is?

No replacement for displacement is really no longer true. By the time you put a huge V8 into a strong enough chassis to support it, the "racecar/bike" is already slower than a lightweight frame with a small engine assisted by forced induction.

Back when I used to waste a lot of my money on cars I managed to keep alive an Eagle Talon TSi. With simply turning up the boost to 24psi (along with other supporting mods) I would eat just about any V8 on the street.
And then after each race excuses began to fly...

V8 != fast.
