Yeah, maybe in Florida but if you were to hit the afterburner here in the Golden State, PITA would have a fit because you probably just killed a dozen endangered gnats!

Cool toy. I would take her for a ride. Says 3 times the torque of a stock bike, but doesn't say anything about the power. Let's see, I was tightening the rear wheel with just one hand and produced 70 lb x ft of torque. Yes, that was at zero rpm, but who cares. I could easily do a 100! And that afterburner... looks cool, but it's a disaster waiting to happen. I will stick with good old turbo, LOL

How many miles per gallon? Not that I'm economical, but would a 5 gallon tank go further than say 2 to 3 miles?

Milage can't be too bad as Leno rides his all over. Last time I was over there I noticed it had almost 6000 miles on the clock.

That's not it, he rides that thing up to the Rock Store in the Santa Monica mountains. Not many places to buy fuel up there.

By the way, at the shop, he is just a regular guy, hands on, working on his stuff.
