Photobug, glad to see you awakening from your crack-induced stupor! (Just kidding you about the fact that that bike has been discussed here a while back.)
Definitely an "exotic." Did you know that Jay Leno owns one? He's taken it up to the Rock Store on occasion (I saw photos somewhere on the internet). He tells a story of how the exhaust melted the plastic bumper of an expensive car that was sitting behind him at a stoplight; he said he just slowly eased away without saying anything (the driver of the car hadn't noticed).
