I can only imagine what would happen the first time you blipped the throttle at a light. Talk about torque reaction!!
Check out this pic to get an idea of how big that bike would have to be:

Personally I like the sound of a Ducati twin or a Triumph Triple, but really the sound needs to be comined with some decent performance to keep me interested. If I just wanted to listen to bikes I'd hang out at the watering hole as many other "riders" do.

When we made a missle x in Puerto Rico at Rosie Roads two of our f-4's came over the enlisted barracks at fult tilt and hit the AB.



Set off all the fire alarms and sprinkler systems in the barracks. The zeros who were flying got grounded for a week with no pay for that one.



Still was pretty cool.

Naw it would be way to big. Why not just go for an Allison, or a Rolls Royce Griffen. Both can make close 3000HP and are much smaller.

What about the Tomahawk bike that used the V-10 from a viper?

If you go to the radial pages, click on the Rotec eng. link and you can hear them start an run. Without revealing too much about my age, I remember round engine airliners flying overhead. What a sweet,sweet, sound

I grew up hearing C-123's, C-124's and H-16's, and even B-47's and B-52's screaming on the ramp, warming up.



Nothing like having a dad in SAC!
