Unlike any other bikes I've had. The bike can't be ridden slowly - too uncomfortable and the engine doesn't like it. Wing mirrors are useless unless you like looking at your own shoulders. The steering takes some getting used to but it is very light, fast and steady once you learn that braking forces are separated from steering forces. Here is another shot of it on a car ferry.

That bike is just all kinds of pure, mechanical sex. It's the only bike that actually stopped me at the motorcycle show and kept me captivated for 15-20 minutes (they had it on a stand, with the tank at face height). I don't even want to ride one--just hang it from the ceiling inside the house. Every inch of it was thought about before they did it (even if the function didn't follow their idea of form ). I'm an R&D prototype engineer and everything on that bike makes me weep at its beauty and execution. If I won the lottery tomorrow, the 3D would be one of the first I would grab. A real work of moto-art. Congrats on having one!

Don't if it will be your bag or not, but you need to check out the bikes Andy Sparrow draws on www.bloodrunners.com
