275 pounds and 116 hp? (*cough hoarsely, sputter a bit, wipe coffee off of laptop, regain composure*) ...sweet.

i think i'd live longer on a 500cc cagiva mito, though.

Wouldn't it be great to have unlimited funds?

Thumbs up Attainability

Really, this is attainable for any one of us.

Instead of buying a $30,000 sedan and a $10,000 GSX-R 1000 or $14,000 Harley, buy a $25,000 NCR and a $10,000 used car. I don't think the pricing is out of reach, it's just a matter of priorities and whether or not you want your wife to be happy with you.

It seems like it wold be tough to ride a bike that light that on the street. You'd be jumping off every bump.

Right, and that is why you need unlimited funds. I wouldn't want this bike as my only bike. But I would like it as a third or fourth bike. After a nice standard, something to tour on or a fun motard.

I have a tenuous enough grip on my self control without this kind of temptation. I'm going to have to delete this thing from my memory.

No, no, no. You need to go to the bank RIGHT NOW and take out a loan. You need this bike. Don't deny yourself basic day-to-day needs it will only lead to stress and anxiety.

That, and when you lose your license, I can buy the bike off you cheap!

Too bad it's not street legal. Since it's only a track bike to really enjoy it on the track to push it, you'd need to have the money to fix it when you crash it...

I had no idea all those cash registers were imported from Italy.
