Allen Millyard

The bike looks great, very well finished. I think this is the chap that also did a Kwacker Z-2600. He stuck 2 Z1300 engines together to make a V12. That sounded better but this looks better finished. The V12 sounded awesome more like you'd expect from a Ferrari than a bike. The V12 looked more manegeable as it was smaller. Strangely I hear this one has better fuel consumption - weird.

I think someone should persuade him to do a smaller capacity 2 stroke. Stick a few motocross engines together and make a lightweight 750 smoker. Like the 70's but faster and with modern handling. What do they have in racing skidoos?

Traffic lights...

I can see them going one of two ways:

The tiny lean followed by the inevitable journey to the ground, that thing has to way a bloody ton

                OR

A backflip as 500bhp and ~500ft/lbs of torque display the limits of two wheels and rear wheel drive.

Ten out of ten for a completely pointless, utterly impractical posing tool though, I don't think it was built with commuting in mind.

Traffic Lights, not all motorcycles NEED to be practical, or useable, or anything.  I would guess there are scores of riders who would love a huge, superpowered bike like that.  It is a very good peice of engineering and I personally like it better than the Tomahawk which shares its engine.

Awesome

Even though I like the Tomahawk better, the Millyard is still a pretty cool piece of engineering. May be not street legal but who cares. I'd ride if you gave it to me.

Yes it can turn corners

Him yes it is road legal (it's on an 09 plate), yes it can turn corners (unlike the Tomahawk!), there's a U-Tube Vid showing it cornering into a prytol fillling station at;

Yes, it is rideable (Alan's already coveref over 250 miles on it in the last couple of weeks), Yes there is some torque steering I understand (especially on left hand bends) and No he hasn't dropped it yet. Mind you i defy anybody to pick up a "dropped" big bike (e.g. a large Harley or Hoss Boss). No you won't burn your legs on the exhaust downpipes (at least not in leathers) as they've been specially ceramic coated inside and out.

The man is a proper engineer, I've seen some of the stuff he has done with Kawasaki engines. Brill.

And on two real wheels not Four

What a fantastic, amazing and beautiful piece of engineering, and I bet if thay marketted that to the US, Japan and other countries, they would see quite a few.

Excellent stuff.

Viper V10 Stand

The centre stand can be operated by the rider with ease using a concealed foot operated ratchet system.
