Donkey Kong

This thing has me a little confused: a 100 HP BMW dirt bike. It's got the traditional BMW engine with the horizontally opposed cylinders sticking out the sides. They are not as wide as the handlebars, and they provide some protection for the riders feet from brush and what not. If you are big enough to handle a bike like this, then you can probably avoid running those exposed cylinders into rocks. And big you have to be in more ways than one. There is the 100 HP engine to start with, the 400 pound weight, which is kinda light for such a powerful motor, and then there's the 20K (US) price tag. That's a little rich for my blood.
