    Tat is pretty cool!

    Have you seen the modified Kawasaki KLR650s the Army is using? They've been converted to diesel and can go 400-plus miles on a tankful, which for a bike is tremendous range

    That is the coolest motorcycle I've ever seen!

    I would like to do that to my bike. I love it.

    That sounds coming from a bike is sick.

    And with the thick smoke pumped out the rear end no LEO would ever be able to see your plate, let alone read it. I bet that puppy would haul a Smoooveee up a cliff.

    Yeah, the thick black smoke is what sealed the deal for me!

    Can you imagine leaving a cloud like that behind you from stoplight to stoplight. HA

    I would not be able to knock the grin off my face!

    That is one badass bike. They need to mass produce those.

    In the museum at Anomosa ,Iowa there is a Yamaha Diesel engine. People wonder why I ride a Yamaha well it's because Yamaha is progressive thinking. We are way ahead of the curve sort of speaking.
