Really darling, you shouldn't have!

My wife has insisted getting me this for Christmas from the Needless Markup Christmas catalog. What can I say, at a mere $110 large, she's a very giving person. Taxes. license, etc. extra:

There's the startling, dare we say sexy, design that fuses raw power with crisp simplicity. It's an evolution of the machine, at once taken back down to its core elements while being reinvented and re-engineered for optimal performance. It's our street-legal sci-fi dream come to life, in the form of the limited-edition Fighter Motorcycle. Ours exclusively courtesy of Confederate Motor Company®, the first ever Fighter packs 190 mph of performance into its cutting edge carbon fiber, titanium, and aluminum chassis. There's the 64" wheelbase, 27"H seat, integrated braking system, lots of high-tech bells and whistles, and custom NM edition features. But, honestly, ride it once and you'll be too jacked up on adrenaline to remember all the details.

To score one of only 45 of these raw, raging, right on machines, call 1.877.9NM.GIFT.

Heck, for $85K less I could put a seat on a nekked LT and be right in style!

Re: Really darling, you shouldn't have!

That'd probably be a cool ride for the first ten feet or so...


Try to drive it on the streets and it would get really old really fast..

I guess if you put a better "seat" on it and some handle bars. And some foot boards. And a windshield. And some fairings.

But, Look on the bright side. Think of how many hours you'll get to spend with it keeping it looking decent..

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Re: Really darling, you shouldn't have!

Is that seat supposed to be comfortable?

Sure doesn't look it!

Re: Really darling, you shouldn't have!

I was a visiting Motorwerks on S. western ave. in Chicago last month and they two of those bikes sitting side by side They were identicle with only one number diff in the vin. A matched set. Silver-black, If I remember correctly about 100 miles on each. They were on consingnment supposedly by the infamous Tony Rezko... Oh ya the sign said that a steak dinner at the Chicago Chop house was included with the purchase. Seems a bargain as both were only $110,000.00. You had to buy both though...
