Silky Smooth K Motor Video - Nickel on Edge

For some time, I've heard about how smooth the Goldwing motor was, and how people have stood a nickel on edge while the motor was running. I have always been curious as to the smoothness of the K1200GT motor, and if it could do the same. Here is the proof.

I heard that if you try that with a K1600GT, it'll give you five pennies back, all balanced on edge . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
