How fast does it go? HP4 v Hayabusa v ZZR1400 | Special | Motorcyclenews.com
Here's one group test that BMW's S1000RR might not win. BMW's ultimate
version of the S1000RR; their super-advanced HP4, is current champion in
its class, and won our MCN superbike shootout hands down.
This week it takes on the challenge of top speed against the big-power
hyperbikes, Kawasaki's ZZr1400 and Suzuki's Hayabusa.
Get the best of biking EVERY day...

Custom Built Chevy SB V8 Twin Turbo Trike.
My Lunacy Pill, The Global Warmer. Chevy SB performance modifications, two

brake, Ceramic coated Exh. system, Fairmont rear axle, Air springs
Goldwing with 4 wheels allows me to still ride. Insta-trike
With a bum leg and foot from Nam, and having dropped my 1,300 lb Honda Gold
Wing (loaded with passenger) at very low speeds a few times making u turns
on grades or in tight places, I decided to turn it into a free standing
machine with these stabilizer wheels.
Once the trailer hitch is installed, it is a matter of 5 minutes or less to
take the Tow-Pac,Inc. Insta-Trike kit off and be back to 2 wheels.
I took it off once, but put it back on because it is so much fun. It
makes me feel good about driving on gravel or slippery surfaces.
It will not tip over either and I can drive all speeds and take turns
I have put over 10,000 miles on it since I installed it last year and must
say, driving it is a lot of fun too.
So if you have a bum leg like me or are having trouble holding it up, you
might like this alternative.
I sure do and for thousands of dollars less than a regular trike kit. This
was worth it...especially if you have a bad leg and still want to ride.

First day riding with our new construction.
This is better bike than we are ever thinking.

Awesome V12 Monster diesel engine Awake and Alive startup
The first V-type engine (a 2-cylinder vee twin) was built in 1889 by
Daimler, to a design by Wilhelm Maybach. By 1903 V8 engines were being
produced for motor boat racing by the Société Antoinette to designs by
Léon Levavasseur, building on experience gained with in-line four-cylinder
engines. In 1904, the Putney Motor Works completed a new V12 marine racing
engine -- the first V12 engine produced for any purpose. Known as the
'Craig-Dörwald' engine after Putney's founding partners, the engine
mounted pairs of L-head cylinders at a 90 degree included angle on an
aluminium crankcase, using the same cylinder pairs that powered the
company's standard 2-cylinder car. A single camshaft mounted in the central
vee operated the valves directly. As in many marine engines, the camshaft
could be slid longitudinally to engage a second set of cams, giving valve
timing that reversed the engine's rotation to achieve astern propulsion.
"Starting is by pumping a charge into each cylinder and switching on the
trembler coils. A sliding camshaft gave direct reversing. The camshaft has
fluted webs and main bearings in graduated thickness from the largest at
the flywheel end." Displacing 1,119.9 cuin (18,352 cc) (bore and stroke
of 4.875" x 5" (123.8 x 127 mm)), the engine weighed 950 pounds (430 kg)
and developed 150 bhp (110 kW). Little is known of the engine's
achievements in the 40-foot hull for which it was intended, while a scheme
to use the engine to power heavy freight vehicles never came to
fruition. One V12 Dörwald marine engine was found still running in a
Hong Kong junk in the late-1960s.
Two more V12s appeared in the 1909-10 motor boat racing season. The Lamb
Boat & Engine Company of Clinton, Iowa built a 1,558.6 cuin (25,541 cc
(5.25" x 6" (133.4 x 152.4 mm)) engine for the company's 32-foot Lamb IV.
It weighed in at 2,114 pounds (959 kg). No weight is known for the massive
3,463.6 cuin (56,758 cc) (7" x 7.5" (177.8 x 190.5 mm)) F-head engine built
by the Orleans Motor Company. Output is quoted as "nearly 400 bhp (300
By 1914, when Panhard built two 2,356.2 cuin (38,611 cc) (5" x 10" (127 x
254 mm)) engines with four-valve cylinder heads the V12 was well
established in motor boat racing.
In automobiles, V12 engines have not been common due to their complexity
and cost. They are used almost exclusively in expensive sports and luxury
cars because of their power, smoother operation and distinctive sound.

Mattel's Stallion Trike
You can find all the information you need on this trike on the web at the
It has a Ford 4 cylinder 150hp engine, and it handles like a Super Mario
Cart! If you are a biker and you want to meet to look at it I will consider
that. It has every option offered by the manufacture, which include:
AC & Heat, Power adjustable peddles, Trunk Carpet, Trail Hitch, Cruse
Control, Front Seat Backrest, Fog lamps, HID headlights.
I have added the following items: Custom LED underbody lights, LED side
lights, Driver pouch, Wig/Wag headlight modulator, Remote Battery Terminal
(without this you will need to take the rear tire off to charge or jump the
battery), Additional antenna, J&N intercom and CB, Trunk Pouch, larger rear
tires, wind deflectors, and power plug.
I have had all the major updates done to this trike, and it is in perfect
mechanical condition and still under the factory warranty. Currently the
2011 models are not being offered due to Ford changing the motor. I am not
sure if TBMS will even offer another model due to having to re-engineer the
bike to fit the changed motors offered by Ford.
What sets my Stallion apart from the newer models is that this one is hand
laid fiberglass with a custom gold and silver fleck candy apple paint with
clear coats. This paint is truly amazing when you compare it to the new
flatter paint on the new plastic bikes.
Only about 600-800 of these trikes have been made and they are truly
amazing. Check out the technical data here:
Briefly here it is: 35-45mpg sipping regular gas. 143 hp weighing only
1,750lbs. 9.5 gallon fuel cell. With a top speed of 119 mph!
You can see my bike on this video:
This is a turnkey built from the ground up as a trike, not a conversion
kit. It is solid as a rock at all speeds! It is fully loaded, not stripped
down like the new ones.
