POWERBALL win = Hennessey Venom GT2.. 1500bhp

Maybe I hit the "PowerBall" lotto tonight, and I get one of these. And a 'Sea-lab' type house to live in. Or a tree house, but probably underwater... I'm thinking a 'sea-lab' because you'd need a submarine to visit me, but I'd keep my Bonnie parked at the docks next to my slip... I'd also "Bling" out a cement mixer with 'spinner' rims and the mixer part coated in disco-ball type diamonds. Can't recall anything as absurd as a "pimped out" cement mixer...

"With over 1,500 horsepower and a power-to-weight ratio of 1+ bhp-per-kilogram it's now competing with spacecraft and mythical creatures"

I would do a Doggie-style tour of...the world on a Bonneville, of course.

I would hire a great attorney, doctor, full time chef, top notch accountant and then do the bottom end of my bike. All other purchases can wait.

P.S. Hey JJ, hide your avatar pic before Boldor sees it.

Seen it; don't get it.

Why do you need a solicitor (attorney)?

People who have suddenly become extremely wealthy have noted that some people they have known for years change or "show up"from the past and look for ways to try to ensnare them in frivolous "legal" claims. Having a good lawyer to deal with ridiculous people frees you up to enjoy your life with the genuine ones.

I didn't buy a ticket so I will just ride my Scrambler, the wife's Bonnie and our CB.

I am so glad i didn't waste any money on such foolishness.
