Looks great man! I really want one of the silver ones, but I'm afraid my license would be gone, and I would probably have some steel bracelets applied at some point, if I decided to get one. Cool bike!

Sweet ride. Congrats!

Very tempting but I raise enough hell on my piddly, 80hp, GT1000.

Nice ride. I admire a guy that has enough restraint to own such a bike and not act a fool. I, on the other hand, am such a fool. Not stunts mind you, but with the roads I travel I cruise @ 85 already and my K bike is 21 yo. If I had a modern bike my license would be suspended yesterday- maybe even the day before yesterday. As a matter of fact, doesn't every Open Class GT bike come with a disclaimer that states "We would like to congradulate you on your new purchase. You're local law enforement agency will be sure to introduce themselves to you at their earliest convenience."

Nice bike. Congrats. Do you have to count down from 10 every morning before you launch out of the garage?

He only get an 8 count. Seems it has a time space distortion situation and time speeds up on him.

Unless I'm mistaken, it looks like you are located in Florida. Central to southern Florida. Palm Beach County?

What's even more amazing is that you have a garage you can actually park vehicles in. Wow, unheard of 'round these parts...

Depends on viewpoint. Time will slow down for the operator. For the outside observer the bike will simply disappear into a space-time distortion informally called a wormhole. In rare cases the bike will appear to cease moving to the outside observer as it approaches the event horizon of the singularity created at launch.

Just remember the theory of relativity - the faster you go the more you can treat everything else as stationary.

My uncle lives by that rule, it's scary.
