You seem to en­joy the Y2K jet bike more than most. What’s it like to ride?

The Y2K bike is a lot of fun. It makes noise and fright­ens chil­dren, and it’s hi­lar­i­ous. I mean, it pulls so hard. You have 475 pound-feet of torque in a bike that weighs less than 500 pounds. But you’ve got to get it spin­ning to do it. And it takes a cer­tain… tech­nique. You have a sec­ond of de­lay on ac­cel­er­a­tion and a sec­ond de­lay on shut­off, so you have to plan ahead. You just have to learn how to ride it. It’s great fun, and you’re so glad when you get off it. You say, “Oh, my god, I’m still alive!”

It’s harder to travel and get around and do things on a mo­tor­cy­cle. But it’s way more fun.
