Very, very impressive. How long did it take from start to finish?

How is the accelerator response and rear tyre slyppage on the kneebenders?

The throttle response is instant when your in the boost (this starts to wind on at about 4500-5000rpm and holds all the way to 10,000rpm) I also built a turbo gsxr1000 so it was a good learning curve before the big one.
Its not actually the horsepower that is frightening or intimidating its actually the torque. If you take a stock GSXR 1000 and the turbo charged one...mine pulls in fourth just like a stock one does in first gear...the busa is even more dramatic and can still do silly things in fifth and sixth gear...like spin or wheelie...but you do get 'used' to it...they never ever fail to put a smile on your dial.
And before anyone asks yes tires (rear) will last all day.

That is just utterly ridiculous ...I LOVE IT! Seriously, amazing build. I’ve done a lot of CAD work in my time, and I cannot imagine the man hours that went into designing, programming and building that frame...much less all the secondary parts, great work.

Have you tested the top speed ( in closed and private road, ofcourse ) I couldn't resist taking it somewhere in the dawn and try to see how much over 200 mph it will go :-)

Its interesting when you have to throw big suspension into the mix and fuel tanks up the front and back.

"Dakar esque" rally bike here we come...and they do just beg to be covered in carbon...gonna love the MWG face when he sees his beautiful crafted billet smashed around a desert somewhere!!!

Yes by all accounts it was built to accelerate out of corners at a voracious amount of knots...whipping it down the local freeway showed it would easily pull top noise to the rev limiter...which means its a bit quicker than a stock one by approx 20mph...(330-340kmh) allegedly

I can't wait for that one :-) Do you allready have any special engine in mind? With your skills and geniouses around you, you could easily manufacture one of a kind beast. If I had your resources in disposal, I would definitely opted for creating a bike with a fuel tank under the seat/behind the engine, to lower the center of gravity as much as I can, leaving the area above the engine as light as possible, and use it for the luggage/tent/spares storage, to maximaly centralise the mases, and leave the front and rear of the bike as light as possible.

That is what I thought :-) I know that you didn't design it to abolish land speed records, otherwise you wouldn't have shortened the wheel base, but it is nice to know that the ability is there :-)

Have no fear the local cuntstablurry have been out in force desperately trying to apprehend "a guy on a black bike that whistles and goes very very fast"
Well I did have to test it to make sure I'd ...well we'd.... got it right.
It was funny talking to the people involved who wanted me to sign disclaimers...I 'm sure they thought I wasn't going to be around for long.

Now where's that schematic of a 450 ktm rr that needs...improving!!!

The wall for partial streamlining is about 225 at sea level. At that point you begin to experience wheelspin.

BTW outstanding build. Beautiful bike.
