dnyce honestly i wouldnt have done that either-if it indeed does run, it looks as if when you're riding you better hope all goes well bcuz if you bang the blower, you'll be decapitated, blow a piston and blow off your arm, and if the massive torque breaks whatever he used to go from tranny to the chain, bye bye balls!

im all for thrills and adrenaline, but that aint for me. like i said b4 tho, great engineering skill at work, thats why i like it. from what little custom work ive done on cars and bikes, i know how much you have to plan crap out 3-4-5-6 times before you actually think you get it right, and then when you execute it 9times outta 10 theres something that you didnt plan for and you go back to the drawing board.

theres also a bike with a bmw v-10 or v-12 that was built in germany, and it looks pretty cool. not american badass cool like a huge v8 with a blower, but still cool.

good find pizdets

on paper it should run mid 6's, but the extreme weight of the thing, along with the monster torque, lack of weight transfer/chassis setup, and a whole bunch of other stuff wont let that happen. probably hit 160mph tho-stock sb wont do that in the 1/4

if it makes you happy, a top fuel bike has about 1000-1200hp, and they have been 5.80's @ 245+ mph

Well I guess everyone needs a hobby. Not what I would have done but To each their own.

Got crunched by a Lexus IS300 and busted my foot/ankle and leg up. Had to have several surgeries and two skin grafs. Bike was totalled.

I didn't ride for a few years and then decided to get back into it and bought another sportbike since that's what I had always ridden until this Bigdog.

I actually was going to buy a Titan Gecko but they were having financial problems and I felt more confident in Bigdog and bought the Bulldog.

That's pretty cool, do you remember if it was in the states or in the UK? Must be getting pretty famous if he brought it to the states.

Still want to find a video of it running. He said he rides it but I want video to believe it.
