    For 2006, Thunder Mountain has made some very good changes. First off, they changed the drive from left side to right side, which took care of their balance issues. The bike is lighter and very well balanced now. Second, moving the drive from the left side to the right enabled them to use the LARGEST tire made for a motorcycle. The new 300!!! MASSIVE rubber, take a look...

    A friend of mine has one that looks like that.
    I think he said it was like 30-31k something. No way!

    Oh I know. What I meant was NO way I'd ever spend that on a bike.

    I wouldn't either. I think it's rediculous. But people buy 'em. More money than brains.

    I'd build my own before I'd drop that kind of cash on one, and it would be exactly the way I wanted.
