Thanks. I'll pass it along to my friend. He's looking pretty seriously at it because they guy really wants to sell to buy a Mustang, and my friend has a Mustang of about that value so they are trying to work up an even trade.

I saw a stunt rider do it at low speed, so it might not be photoshop. However, he brought the bike over backwards to stop and I have no idea how this person is going to stop....


Hey Secondchance, the Buell can't be the best bike ever, because the ZX10 is.....
