This kind of contests remind me of the auto soundsystem contests they have where you set the car out in the middle of a stadium and run the system by remote control from 100 yards away, cause the sound would literally kill you up close. Interesting as an opportunity to push the edges of the envelope but in themselves largely (totally?) irrelevant in the real world. As others have suggested, there is no possible way to put 1/2 that horsepower to the ground with a street-legal bike. Maybe with a big drag slick, 20' wheelbase and a wheelie bar?



I wonder how many of those engines he has grenaded in the process. Can't say I would want my 'nads in the way of the flying shrapnal when it happens!

LOL



Loved the analogy of putting your tongue on the battery to riding a KTM from Seattle to Daytona! Come to think of it, I have never been able to resist putting my tongue on a 9v battery, and riding the Duke cross country does sound like fun.



And yeah, it I had a chance to twist the throttle on that thing, I'd go for it!
