Hi guys,

Nice to meet you all.
I am about to buy a 750 turbo in the upcoming months.
You have been quite productive other the years, I found a lot of information helpful for selecting my motorcycle.

If you have any suggestion for a thread with more condensed info/list with checks before buying a turbo 750 please let me know.

All the best

Yes. Actually I am an aerospace engineer with background in turbofan engine components manufacturing, rocket engines design, manufacturing and testing. But for the last 2-3 years I switched completely to another industry.

Lets face it guys, we need a rocket scientist in our ranks.

If i remember correctly Young Blood had a strong interest in home made rockets.

Welcome Rocket

I work right across the river from where all those rockets and what not go up. Worked with a few of the engineers/scientist over years also. Maybe we could get a rocket bolted onto the back of the turbo, just for that extra little kick once and while :rofl:
