    Being from Milwaukee, I'll see a couple of these a year. Most of the time they don't use a transmission as the engine has enough torque to work 1:1. And yes, you don't goose it at idle as it will lay the bike over. But the exhaust note is better than any harly...well oK, most. Ah what the hell any straight pipe harly sounds better.

    But to answer the question of a cammer big block, over the years there have been several renditions of cammer, 3 valve and 4 valve big motors-it's jus that non of them have ever caught on.

    i was ridign my r6 and a guy on one of those monstrosities pulled up next to me. Soudns cool and is great as a concept but just looks god awful to ride. 1 gear, eats fuel, doens't turn, wieghs 1000 lbs, and are horribley expensive.

    I f i had a ton of extra cheese i would buy one for a larf but not as a primary bike hell not even as a secondary bike. I saw pics of one that had a 540 and a blower. The rider has to reach around teh blower to get to handle bars and you have a flame arrestor basically 2" under your chin. The gas tank was relocated unde rth seats and held 1 gallon. good for about 35 miles.
    Pardon me, while I whip this out!

    Not trying to argue, but who ever told you it can run 8 flat @ 140MPH mislead you. I can tell you, an all out drag car has to run 150MPH to run 9.00's, and bikes with street tires don't have that kind of traction. An 8.0 pass is typically in the neighborohood of 171MPH.

    We seen one of the 502's being riden on our way back from Maryland Internatonal Raceway, it looks like a handfull. It's alot of motor for a bike. Makes a nice conversation piece though.

    THere are a few around me . Most are 502hp/502's . 1 gear forward and 1 backwards ! At highway speed , twist the throttle and smoke the tire !!! They claim they are well balanced .The motor is low .... With a rear tire like that you don't need training wheels !

    I saw one at this year's "World Of Wheels" had a Lingenfelter motor running nitrous over 1100HP !!! They were showing burnouts of other "Boss Hoss's" on a video. They all got pretty hairy as soon as they hooked up(high speed shakes).

    A friend of mine has a Cannon which is similar but Ford powered. He has his making 450 ponies and I walk awy from it with my 165 horse (at the rear wheel) Suzuki Hayabusa. They are not that fast. No way they are running in the 8's. Maybe mid 10's in the quarter.
