I have rode one, MCC open house. Its a "go to jail bike" Rob then bought it, when he found out I was the first to ride it (it had 1.5 miles on the odo) he sold it, he heard from people what I did on an unescorted demo ride...I think it was the last year MCC had unescorted demo rides

Very quick revving motorcycle. when I rode it the way the motor revved reminded me of the way a F1 car revs. Good luck getting parts when the time comes

Heard nothing but bad things about them from a maint perspective - I now jack loves his and I alos know Rob had his in the shop more than on the rode

I looked at one seriously before i went the SuperDuke route

I've had tons of friends contemplate buying one... but ultimately they all went with monsters. I'm not big on flat four's but it'd still be tons of fun.
