Oh, to just sit on it, and let it idle as I cruised through town,
pass by the businesses and the Police Station, letting that Lamborghini engine sound off.

The MC front end looks heavily stressed with forks almost fully collapsed, I would not bet my life on the front wheel components holding up at cruising speeds.

Looks like the Oscar Mayer mobile... Imagine how long the steering tie rods are on THAT thing!

That thing is way cool !!. A lot of thought,imagination and time went into it. The expression on the guys face makes me wonder what's going thru his head.

The short answer is, "no".
The long answer is "hell no".

Although I can appreciate the engineering that went into it, to make it "kinda" work as a motorcycle, and aesthetically I find it interesting, but I consider it no more that a "show piece".

Rake on front end looks wrong. With that much weight. A hard bump and it would fold back. Could be camera angle. More a show bike not a rider. Just my opinion doesn't mean any thing.

Old guys expression is I moved the handlebars five seconds ago and nothing is happening up front. Can you say steering slop? Lean angle doesn't look to good either. Oh, and Italian engines are maintenance free to boot.
