I haven't exactly been hiding my admiration for the turbine driven motorcycle, the MT Y2K ! Not that I'd love to have that motorcycle for its insane speed (227 mph), or its looks, or for it's gadgets (rear mounted camera and LCD monitor, forward and rear mounted radar detectors). What seems to me the ultimate cool, is starting this motorcycle ! The whine and spinning up of the engine has got to be one of the best sounds I could imagine.

Imagine pressing your starter button on your motorcycle, and the turbine, slowly but loudly, starts revving up... building up in revs until it's ready (54,000 rpm!). Heaven !!

Well, you can hear (and see) it yourself. Here are two video.google clips of the Y2K being started. Notice in the first segment how people move away when the bike is backup'd towards them....now imagine a car tailgating you, and slowly his front bumper melts away...

It's obvious that this motorcycle is not your regular motorcycle. Hop on it, press the starter and zip away. Doesn't work like this, it takes a while for it to spin up, but then.....

Here are some other turbine motorcycles {link}
