"sign it up for the crusher."


Give the guy some credit! Even though it's a busa, I think it's pretty cool.

A Hayabusa with a turbine?

Try this little baby, the Y2K bike with a Rolls Royce 250 C18 turbine.
Owner Zef Eisenberg cracked 200 on it last week at Elvington and it makes toast too


Photo from August 2011, the bike is black now.

Think there would be just a little bit of power difference between an APU output and a helicopter engine , give me the Y2K anyday
I think Zef would be the first on a Y2k to actually do well at a "official" event , hope he goes even faster next time

That's a power difference I would just have to live without...I couldn't afford the extra $125,000 it would take to buy the Y2k. Would be bad ass to have it though.

Check out Big Dog Garage and listen to Jay Leno`s Y2K Turbine fire up, some guys really do have it all.
