Interesting Motorcycle

Here's a motorcycle with a radial engine.

Wonder how the ride is?

Jesse James did one of those a while back, but the engine is mounted perpendicular to the body, not parallel, so i bet it's alot harder to ride than that one.

I read about that one in Popular Mechanics (I think). I believe there were some clearance issues when cornering. Still, it is a very unique bike and the radial engine sounds awesome.
