Yeah!

They could park it in front of the Boot Hill Saloon.

No, wait a minute. That won't work. The bike is longer than the Saloon is wide!

The Rob Report understands that the V-REX is the product of a design genius and an engineering genius passionately working together to create something that is beyond what has ever been produced before. The fact that the bike is in production and can be had for $40k is unfathomable.

I'm 47 and have been a motorcycle enthusiast my whole life. I have never seen or ridden anything like this before. The V-REX is a once in a lifetime occurrence that happened because of a chance meeting on the Internet between two geniuses. It's as simple as that.

Early every Saturday morning, there is a gathering of exotic and custom cars at the Ford Tech Center in Southern California. The latest in automotive design and engineering is always there. I rode up and parked the V-REX between a $700k Lamborghini and a Porsche GT. The cars simply disappear next to the V-REX. I'd say the V-REX is $40k well spent...

Well,... SPENT........

(sorry man, it looks cool and all: but if I had $40k+ layin' about right now - I'd invest it in something - and a moto isn't considered an investment. a moto-COMPANY, yeah maybe)


(am I the only one that's having problems with the page html and the thread-tree?)

He must be calculating in Pesos instead of dolares.

Sounds to me like he's interested in the "my-p*nis-is-bigger-than-yours" inanity that so many men with expensive toys get into.

(However, I owned a Ferrari for many years and not all owners of nice cars are that way.)

Well, apparently the most important thing is that you PARK it and people are incredulous. And here I thought motorcycles were for riding.

And I have a CLS550 and I'm charming.

True dat, as I've spent time with Mr. Buz Esq. He's humble, too.
