Jet Assist

Hi, Fellow Bacchettistas
 
Now that the forum has apparently been resurrected, we need to do our part
to keep it active and growing.
 
Threads about handlebars and seat angles are certainly helpful, but we also
need some topics which provide a bit more zip.
 
Soooo....Has anyone tried using jet assist on his / her Bacchetta  ?  
Some of the newest model airplane jet engines are quite
powerful and can be controlled via a throttle.  One thing for sure:  Any rider
who tried to draft you too closely would never need to shave his legs again.
Those hairs and hair follicles would be toast .....particularly when you turn
on the after burner.
 
Here's an example to get your thought processes flowing:

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, Y'All  !!!

    Hey, Bent
    Shouldn't Santa and the reindeer be wearing space suits ?
     
    And maybe put some super-wide tires on that 2.0........
    and you don't need aero wheels on the moon.

    I've seen this one a couple of times. It's slow, stinky, and loud:

    More here, including me on my homemade xstream clone at 6:51. It's long gone, but I just got a real xstream26:

    They have that festival every year the weekend before father's day. I haven't been in a couple of years, need to go back.
