reminds me of the "seven wonders of motorcycling" on the discovery channel where all of the choppers can go 150 mph

With a 124 inch (2 liter plus 2 ci) motor, this is one chopper that just might do 150. Just don't try to turn at that speed! :)

Well, and I guess you'd have to be pretty damn strong to hang on to it in that position, too. Keeping your feet on the forward pegs would probably be the hardest part.

So after all that ranting, Sean, how come this story has a MotoGP logo on it, hmmm? Surely you're not trying to suggest...



"MotoGP is pleased to announce the addition of a new team on the circuit. The bike is a Rucker, ridden by a rider known only as 'Hammerhead'"

Well, actually, the story never mentioned speed. And the "performance" in the company's name could have the same meaning as in "performance art". Think of it as theater on wheels. It's "performance", not "high performance". From m-w.com, one of the definitions is "a public presentation or exhibition". That hits the nail on the head, if you ask me.



A deuce coupe hot rod probably won't outrun a new Mustang GT, either. This bike is just a "production" version of the hot rod. To the people who like this sort of thing, it's all about the look (and, to some {most?}, the looks received), and performance and usability be damned.



Different strokes for different folks.
