That Lamborghini is ‘different’.
Nothing there that really grabs me to be honest.

Think the Lambo bike used a Kawasaki 1000cc motor. Nothing really that special then. Just the price....

The Mach III Kawasaki would be nice but I would imagine it will go well beyond the 5-6K estimate.

Apparently I need to stop buying bikes as I've seemingly got too many. I know, the last sentence makes no sense  :dl_hyperhysteria:

In case you need to justify any purchase, there is a scientifically proven formulae for the number needed..

Bikes Required =N+1
(where N is the number currently owned).

I’m no mathematician, but it adds up in my head. 👍

Seems a rather limiting, rigid formula to me.

Do you feel that BR=Nbo+8÷lof (likelihood of forgiveness) is more appropriate?
