Great Rolling burnout rider lost...

Our German Boss Hoss rolling burnout king recently passed away...

not from a horrendous accident, but his heart gave out at a bike show...
died doing what he loved.

So take care of yourselves...

At least Andreas left us with a lot of great video and stunts...

502 Rolling burnout

Rolling Burnout from Germany

Here's Andreas Werner on his Big Block going sideways doing a rolling smoky...

http://www.biker-lifestyle.tv/eshop/...81ca6f8abba47d

This is a trailer for the 2008 Video made of the Pullman City II American Western Town in the Hartz Mountains in Germany. Was there in 2006 and drank my weight in some reallt good beer. That fact I didnt speak German didnt matter...we had a good time. Going back there in 2009 to top up! These guys love American Country Western, Drive Chevy's and Fords and ride Boss Hoss V8 Bikes.

Enjoy

Hard to get that much HP to the ground with the light weight involved. The Hyabusa I refered to is modified with an over bore kit, and larger carbs. Very low 8 second quarter mile times, and street driven daily.

Still a Wild Ride indeed

I've seen the dual V8 engines racer bikes about I don't know how many years back, so yeah I am aware they did exist. What's the total weight on it ?

Not a problem

Not a problem...I put on 50,000 miles in 3 years....no need for special clothing, except, boots that cover ankles. I get 24-25 miles a gallon, which is better than my Mercedes 3.6L V6 at 18mpg. I bought the bike for 0-60mph in 2 seconds and 8.8 second quartermile, unbaffled exhaust and of course. the conversation starter aspect. I commute to work on this many days. Wet weather handling is great too with car tire.

We have guys in our club with 150,000 miles on these in 6 years.
The new LS3 has valve cover chrome covers you can touch with your bare hands. There are efficient heat shields on the headers so you dont burn the legs.

They've been building these for almost 19 years...most of the bugs ironed out, except of course "operator error".

Talk about a Gas Guzzling beast

Not a biker myself, but you probably need Iron legs and a tactical suit to ride it.
How fast do you want to be splattered into a wall or another vehicle ?
Sounds like Extreme Sports to me. Besides, do you really want to pay that much at the pump ? Bad Monkey !!!

Seen that TV show where they built a Motorcycle out of a full Diesel truck engine, was it Kenworth or Peterbilt ? That's extreme too.

Torque controllable

Way more harmless than it looks...unless you do something stupid...

If you sit in neutral and whack the throttle it kicks right...if you running down the road and whack the throttle in gear, it'll kick slightly right, under normal throttle control, it just goes.

It belies its size...especially the LS3 2009 model. Fuel injected, smooth and silky and just moves! Schweet ride! Two gears, powerglide type tranny with torque converter. No clutch lever...so its shift from neutral into 1st or overdrive and give it a little gas. Thats it. the rest of the learning curve is slow speed handling, using reverse, being mindful of where you park it for good grip for your feet etc. We recommend people ride it solo for 500 miles...enough time for you to get the stiffness out of you and get that stupid grin off your face and just relax and let the beast work for you.

Would be careful

Lots of V8 Bikes for sale now...and there's a lot of know-how on the net in free forums to make them run well...

I'd make very sure I had customers lined up before I did anything like buy a non-mainstream V8 Bike business...

I'm not advertising on here, but look whats for sale in the market. Together with the 500 or so V8bikeriders forum on there to help, it hardly seems worth it to buy such a business unless you already have customers in the works or can make a profit selling the remaining inventory. I hope whoever is selling tyhe business, gets lucky and can move it, but I'd look at it real careful like.

Used V8 Bike Market

Does anyone want to buy a Chevy V8 motorcycle business?

I was looking around the internet for V8 powered motorcycles and I ran across this V8 motorcycle business for sale.
Thunderrod Frameless V8 Motorcycle
It includes one complete 350 cubic inch V8 motorcycle. It's a good looking bike and I would bet that a 355 horsepower bike would be a wild ride.
