So, if I build a bike like this around a Ford 289 V-8 would it be a chick bike?

Yes all mustangs with the 289 V-8 are chick cars like Miatas, MR-2s, VW Beetles, VW Cabriolets, Buz

s BMW, etc...

Excellent Review. This is the first review on Boss Hoss I have ever read...I can't believe how it would be to ride.. Too much bike for me and cost's way too much..But I admire the technical skill involved in making it work.. I sat on a Triumph Rocket and I thought that was grotesque. I guess I am one of those who believe size isn't everything. But hey if you have passion for the Boss Hoss, if you can handle it and afford it, more power to you. Thanks MO for the fun read

Crazy and cool. I'd love to ride one. 36 grand is a bit too high for me, but I one day I'm going to beg, borrow, or steal one to take a ride on.

The Boss Hoss reminds me of a '55 Chevy with a 427 and a 6-71 blower sticking out of the hood, a tube axle front end, and cut-out rear wheelwells with drag slicks. It's great for doing burnouts and putt-putting into the drive-in, but not much else.



I got behind one of these (while riding my 800-lb touring cruiser) on Highway 94. At every short straight, he'd rocket ahead. Then as each curve approached, he slowed to a crawl and tiptoed through. This went on for nine miles, with me screaming "Get the ***** outta the way!" to no avail (there was a double yellow line and little or no shoulder for the whole way).



Finally we rolled into a small town and he pulled into the parking lot of a biker bar, where the bike was finally in its functional element -- parked, with its engine rumbling and bystanders oohing and aahing.



This is a novelty item, not a motorcycle. The fact that it's able to navigate a straight line and handle as well as a late-forties pickup truck does not impress me.

WARNING! The following statement contains IRONY - may be too subtle for inattentive readers...... viewer discretion is surmised



Ah, but he stayed ahead of YOUR bike, didn't he? Ergo, he "Won" the "Race". Further proof that these bikes have no equal on the road.......

Well done. There were more "laugh out loud and recieve strange looks from my wife" passages in this review than any other I can remember...



Just remember... There's no kill like overkill, more is better, and too much is never enough.



Especially when the Damn thing works like it's intended to!



Rock the F**K ON!
