Default Re: American-made MotoGP Contender?

For me, an parallel twin tops the list of worst layouts with absolutely no real other contenders. All the other "worst" layouts on your list offer some kind of benefit that could offset their inherent vibration issues. A parallel twin just sucks.

Default cool idea. good promotion. execution?

I have a wmmra buddy who was at the PIR photo shoot. It is possible that the story overstates how much the bike was ridden and what actually happened, but I wasn't there.

I don't know exactly how to distinguish between in the box or out of it, or just close to the box at a respectful distance, but this strikes me as a premature, thinly veiled prosectus. While while I am sensitive to your "pipe dream" warning, I'll take a flyer right now and say this thing will never race a lap at a nationally sanctioned event.

I hope I am wrong. Then again who would have guessed that Michael Jordan would own a legitimate ama race team. not me.
