I am too old, or at least too round to ride one of these, but strapped down on a trailer it would sure draw attention.

I think in the top pic the body lines and shadows makes the outline of a person on the bike. Don't know if anyone else sees it or not.

A 200 horsepower, Carbon Fiber (read: LIGHT!) motorcycle. Yikes! Oh, and it's a 1200cc V-Twin putting out 200 horsepower!

I'm with Dean on this one on all three points, although while not exactly round, like any good craftsman I do have a good shed over my tools

Not a sportbike rider, but I'd like to see this bike go against the other marques out there. Considering how good Lotus is on 4 wheels, I'd like to see what they do on two. I'd certainly watch them at the races. But I'd ride my Vulcan to the racetrack.

2007 Vulcan 900 Custom
-Bubs Jug Huggers exhaust
-Power Commander III
-Baron BAK
-Kuryakyn grips and pegs
-Fire and Steel Light Bar
-Low and Mean fender and radiator shroud
-Custom Speedometer
-Memphis Shades Batwing (9"visor w/s, lowers)
