haha, I do have that effect - Im 6'6"/250lbs. I have often wondered what it would be like for someone who only weighs 150 to ride this bike. Its plenty fast for me, it would be a rocket if it was 100 pounds lighter.

This bike is actually relatively small as well. The LTD tank is quite a bit smaller than most tanks of the era and the tail and seat are much slimmer and shorter. With the gauges/headlight/handlebars being lower and compact it is quite a bit smaller than a stock KZ650 when they sit side by side. Many people think its a 650 because of its size.

I liked how loud it was when i first got it but I was riding down a residential street the other day and this grandma saw me coming and doubled over to cover up her ears. Felt a bit like an ass so I decided to make a muffler. Also I'm not that big of a fan of the attention it draws.
