A UK bike to drool over!

Parked my K in the city alongside one of these today. Thought is was a Hardly at first, but it was bigger with a lot of exhaust hanging off it. I thought the K's were Gorillas, but this bike, alongside my K, looked like it came out of Jurassic Park.

2.3 litres of cruise. Have you got any over your side yet? It looks low and comfy.

"...Still wondering what you do with it..."

Pull a camping car with it is my best guess. Can't see any other reason why anyone would want to take a pick-up truck and turn it into a motorcycle.

Had an opportunity to ride one when my Trophy was in the shop for the day. The Rocket is deceptively light and a true pleasure to drive. It was easy to forget the huge displacement until rolling on the throttle. Sweet!

I'd definitely want reverse shift and a pair of drop down outriggers, to keep it upright for slow manouvering. It doesn't have much plastic on it to break though. I think I read it can do 0-60 in 2.6 seconds shifting first to second, probably why they call it 'Rocket'.

Talking

I have heard that you must have a small penis as a prerequisite for purchasing those.. at least that's in the sales literature..
