I don't think I could spend that much money

But I'll but a lottery ticket anyway, just in case! :p

I'm sure I could find a few things. Love to give it a shot though.

Well, for one, I'd never work another day in my life. I'd travel the world, skiing, climbing, biking, driving, hiking, and anything else that I feel like doing at the time.

Surrender the booty, and let me get my hands on that beautiful treasure chest!!

One of these days, I'll actually buy a bike again...

I might even invest a few mill just in hopes I don't run out.

About 10 Million would go into buying a sponsorship package for a MotoGP team, maybe it'll get me a "major sponsor" deal with a 125 or 250 team.

My terms would be as follows.
I travel as part of the team for the year, and I get a team shirt............................................. ......That's it!

The rest (280 million), I'd build a racetrack, north west of Sydney, about 2-3 hours away. It'll have good facilities, on track accommodation, it'll be a combination of tight and technical and fast and flowing. and it'll cost twice as much to get a car on there than it will a bike!

Great idea chuck. I'd probably get a racing/riding coach to teach me how to ride better. I could also see building/buying my own track so that I could ride hard any time I damn well pleased. No cops, no cages, no sand, no animals. Ok, maybe it would be tough to keep the animals out, but none of that other crap.

Surrender the booty, and let me get my hands on that beautiful treasure chest!!

OLD THREAD ALERT!


But I'd pay off the house. And buy a Duc, an Aprilia, an MV, a Gix, a Yami, and a Honda. Probly not a Kaw.

Rent a small Island resort and fund a massive week long party for my friends and Two Wheel Forums!

Build my own racetrack with 3 way configurable road course, dirt track, and supermoto track.

Then run AMA superstock on a "stock" R1LE

"Industria, Virtus, et Fortitudo"
(means build it right, ride it hard, and never let up!)

Just Like lightning, only faster!
