Yeah, it was so perfect they dropped it.



God, your tinfoil hat is so heavily alloyed with retardium that it's impervious to cluebats.

I can't get the Moderate tab to work, so Seruzawa, I'm giving you "+4 - Says It All."

I'd like to see him pull this out of his hat as well. I like V-4's just fine but everything else being equal it will weigh more than an I-4 while being narrower, just like a V-twin will be heavier than a vertical twin/I-2. A counter might relate to power delivery on the edges of traction but that angle isn't going to go too far with me talking to the average rider, on the street. It doesn't seem to sink in that just because a particular configuration might someday show itself as the "ultimate", for motorcycle road racing with World class riders it might not be the best for the rest of us.



Until some realize that even in MotoGP the prototypes are trying to maximize performance within "the rules" they will look at results as "proof". The proof is a V-5 won MotoGP in '06 and a V-twin won World Superbike. Honda was able to lose a cylinder and compete thus the V-4 was "chosen" by them IMO. This would be the case if a true "Unlimited Formula Extreme" type class was as heavily competed for by the major manufacturers.



Best engine for street Motorcycle use? Juries still out as far as I'm concerned. I like bikes from singles thru sixes in every configuration. I like the different characteristics of those engines uniquely.

Maybe we should act like good Mommy or Daddy and clap, shout, and jump up and down whenever "Junior" drops one?
