There's a guy around here that rides one, and he rides it everywhere. That thing is so fucking awesome. A few monthes ago a bunch of us brit snits went for a ride. During it as will be the way with a Brit the one guys BSA decided it didn't like making spark anymore. And it was HOT that day upper 90's with 90% humidity. That Vincent sat beside the road and idled without a hiccup, or overheating for a good 20 minutes till the guy shut it off to save some gas. It is so well plumbed, the oil helps cool the engine without an oil cooler, and so well made there are few errant friction points and hot spots. I was impressed, especially saying my water cooled will at least act a little funny sitting under those conditions.

Glad you had a rewarding sighting.

I've been to this site a lot, in fact I just checked it out this morning.. I don't think they're gettin' off the ground. Proposed production was late 2004, it's going to be late 2005 and not a peep yet. I've emailed them several times w/out a response.

I would definitely pay $20,000 for one though... in a heartbeat.
I'd rather have an Egli. Rumor has it that the new manu was planning on using a Honda heartbeat.
