I saw this the other day and Ciento's FS post reminded me of it. I've always thought that nitrous on a bike is a bad idea, but is that Gold Wing so much of a boat that it makes this safe?

If the bike is set up for it properly, i don't see why not.

There's a few sprayed busas out here that have been running for years with no problems.

It would be fun to an experienced rider on a known road in the middle of no where... that thing takes so much longer to stop as is then a busa... i can't imagine doing 120 on a goldwing and bambi hops out in the road.... heavy bikes are a bitch to swerve with due to having to literally throw the weight of the bike and quickly... you may avoid that deer but the trees gonna hurt just as bad... keep the nos on the drag bikes and the sport bikes... not a full dress menstrual cycle...

I worked at a motorcycle dealership within the last 3 years(moved on now)... did you know honda was actually planning airbags for the goldwing and had prototypes floating around in 2004... don't know if they ever did it as i wasn't at a honda dealer...

Remember the tread about the two piece coyote? I bet the wing-ding wouldn't even slow down

My brother has a '66 Porsche 911 that he had sandblasted and repainted the original Porsche Red...the owner of the shop that did it had a heavily modded crotch-rocket that also had nos .......and was afraid to ride it......"scary fast," he said :cool:

I would like to see what a built goldwing with turbo and shoots could do at the track lol.
