    I can't decide at the moment. I have a Vortech Supercharger sitting in my basement, but I saw a nice bike (Honda FMX 650) at the dealership.
    Bikes make fun, I've always wanted an MX bike but I couldn't afford one.
    Now there's somebody who would buy the Supercharger, which means I could afford that bike. But having ~400hp on the autobahn with no speed limit would be fun, too.

    What would you do?

    am I the only one that voted for a bike, yes stangs are wicked but so are bikes, id sacrifice a bit of HP over a bike. I plan on getting a new one when I get home and can afford it

    I grew up riding dirtbikes then Trikes and on to Quads and it was insanely fun...sometimes i miss my old neighborhood because i could just drive from my house to 200acres of trails, jumps and river bank to have fun on. I would love to get another Quad or 250 dirtbike...

    that being said if i lived in Germany i would have atleast 400rwhp and the brakes and suspension to handle it, my ass would be on the Autobahn all the time.

    I don't think cruising with high HP Mercedes/BMWs/ Porsche's etc at 150MPH would ever get old.

    Yeah I know an Enduro is not made for high speeds probably but I don't plan to make longer trips on the bahn with the bike. It's too dangerous. I have heard from enough people losing their lives on a Supermoto on the Autobahn.

    I haven't decided yet, but I probably will go with the Vortech. It must be so much fun to outrun the Bimmers etc.

    lol I know I will love it but it is all a matter of $$$. Here in Germany I have to spend an additional 700$ to get the car with the S/C thru the inspection. Germany sucks when it comes to cars. There are too many rules here, and the officials want too much money for that.
