To all the owners out there, this video goes without saying. But I've been asked by people interested in the bike to describe the bike, how it feels to ride, the power, the handling, etc. It is like describing what its like to ride a roller coaster, or pull 9 Gs. You have to experience it to understand it. So since its really hard to describe, I put this video together. In my mind, this is the best I can do to portray what its like since it's hard to verbalize.

The first clip is from Star Trek 2009. The cop's bike is probably the best example I can find anywhere of the overall smooth, fluid, and quiet but powerful riding experience. It even sounds kind of like the Fighter at high speed! My favorite part is the 270 degree turn the cop does to keep following Kirk (00:30). This portrays the ride experience perfectly.
The second clip is from Battlestar Galactica (incredible series!) - spoiler alert for Season 1 Episode 12 btw. The spacecraft's maneuverability, especially coming out of the mining shaft, yawing around and then popping for the attack, is exactly how I feel when I'm exploring or just messing around/freeriding on the bike (1:55).
The third clip is the iconic Star Wars speeder scene. I AM that Ewoke on the speeder (2:40). This nicely portrays the exhilaration of riding my Fighter on single track in the woods.
