Hot bike!
By Steve Cote(Owner), Sep. 15, 2008
if you can think outside the box this is a great bike. The most fun bike I have owned in 30 years of bikes. It handles, it stops, it will go down the highway. Yes the fan is loud, so wear ear plugs. And it puts out some heat, but there are ways to deal with it. Just ride it and have fun! Read Full Review
