    I can see why people in Japan get annoyed with bosozoku gangs! What a racket! Haha... Love the bikes though... I'm waiting for the year someone shows up with one of these at JCCS!

    these useless POS morons use to wake me up in the middle of the night. it was kinda cool seeing them stop all traffic when they took over the streets, though.

    and they use to hang out at the local convenient store parking lots(7-11, lawson, mini stop, etc) after midnight.

    It's interesting how they get the long raspy notes. You'll notice the riders are holding the clutch lever in, with their foot on the rear brake. They let out the clutch just enough to start dragging the engine, and that gives it the long raspy sound.

    But you will never find me riding a boso bike.

    Never.

    very cool. cool in a 'wow' that took some skill and effort way.

    boso to me represents more vision than I have. I always stare in awe that someone could even begin to come up with the wild ideas that go into a boso bike or a car.

    I'd rock one just to watch people stare, though I find my fairingless Kawi Z1000 hard enough to ride some days, I don't think I would do too well on one of those

    @ Lincoln - I seem to remember a pop off contest not long ago where you made some noise of your own!!!!!!! (I still say it was the sweetest note there, maybe not the loudest but certainly the sweetest!)

    Ha ha! I was watching those videos and wondering to myself what the reaction would have been if I had done that at the PSTOC show.

    Forget Boso bikes....they wind up looking like clowns no matter what. However every JNC owner should build and old Japanese motorcycle into a cafe racer! Thats my next project :tu:
