Talking Good newbie bike?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...tem=1835246912

Whatcha think? I've got 850 miles on my SV650s, I think I'm ready!

This, by the way, is a joke. The auction is not.

Hey, go for it!!!! (330hp turbo 'Busa)

Pros:
+ you could start a thread "how fast is your ride?"
+ front tires would last a long time
+ you'd probably have the fastest bike in town
+ you could attract a lot of attention just parking it somewhere
+ you'd never need 5th or 6th gears

Cons:
- you'd need a wheelie bar to protect your head
- you'd have to learn how to turn really well on one wheel
- you'd have to sell your SV to pay for insurance

What have I missed??

PROS:
+ The cool hissing sound of the blowoff valve right next to your right leg (see the shiney pipe?).
+ Wheelies at 180 mph.
+ Becoming famous on the internet for videos of your 180 mph wheelie.
+ Never having to wonder if you can out-run that cop.

CONS:
- The not-so-cool hissing sound of your right pant leg catching on fire from above mentioned blowoff valve.
- Bug stains left by any insect you hit while doing that 180 mph wheelie.
- Wheelies at 180 mph.
- Being flamed on every forum for dozens of different reasons ranging from you selling your soul to the devil to how 180 mph wheelies are ruining the ozone.
- Insurance comes out to roughly 1/6th of the price of the bike every year.
- Finding out you still can't outrun that cops radio.

But still... that is a darn clean build, 0 miles on it too. Very awesome package, but what would you really do with it?

I never thought anything like that existed till now. I wonder if they would accept American Express, my platinum card should cover the cost of the bike and the liability insurance. Suppose the government would outlaw this bike? My recommendation go for it you only live once,(RIGHT!)
