he probably knows that....he's from SLC.

I've ridden on every road in that video many times, and a few of them in the last few weeks.
They couldn't have picked any more scenic paved two-lane for that video.

Yeah.,.. I'm just flipping out that they've been running around out here and I wasn't able to meet up with them and maybe get a spin on one! The red is just gorgeous.

Ahh. I seem to have discovered a new bias of mine. I guess I saw your comment as being negative because I have to ride for half a day to find a decent road. Western Kansas has about two interesting corners, and nether of them are on the same road.

Yes, great video. When I see one in person I will seriously consider a purchase.

Very nice area for riding for sure! Someone mentioned they spent a lot of money on helicopter shots, could have been an RC Quad. Some of those shots were in one spot mostly.

If the late 90's Suzuki Bandit 1200 was designed by Victory motorcycles this is what it would have looked like.

Okay I am intrigued by Motus...but that comment made me "Lol".

This weekend motus had an event planned. I'm going to try very hard to steal one for a few minutes and get a riding impression.

All I really want to do is a quick gp8 and a wheelie, since I'll never own one.

PS, vintage fest is this weekend. It kinda rocks to live in the 'ham.

:)

Chains just plain work. Shafts will not take any thrashing. U will never see anything but a chain on a big hp bike

Umm, Honda VFR1200 has around 170hp, BMW K1300s have about the same, probably more but those just popped to mind. Nothing wrong with chains, but nothing wrong with shaft drive either, they both transmit power to the back wheel.

Interesting that the Cocnours 14, which is based on the ZX-14, is a shaftie and about 160hp at the crank.

Oh and the guys with turbos have more issues with pistons than the shaft!

Each has its place...
