Happy to have the British or the twins?

2035: A 96" rubber mounted aircooled pushrod twin with hidden rear suspension a raked front end and if I may take some liberties-34 degree lean angle.

If someone can pull this off with dual discs upfront for less than $47,000 I'll be in line with a debit card.

Once again, optimism rears it's ugly head.

You should see him when he's in a bad mood.

Our ability to ride has been far outstriped by the amount of power available. I'd like to see a 90hp SV-750 with Olins - front and rear, and Brembo brakes. I'd pony-up $9K+ for that.

Sure hope he never has to talk someone in off a ledge. That'd be messy.

How about titanium? This isn't a technology, but rather a material. Nonetheless its use might change how bikes are made. It clearly must be getting cheaper to produce and it is already used in some advanced engines. How about ultimately building frames, engines, wheels, etc out of this strong and lightweight (relative to steel) material?

That's the same reason I keep thinking about the Ducati M1000. More than I need and pretty darn cool too.

Default The next big thing.

I got it! Holographic generators that will project images upon the rider. That way everyone will see a rugged manly man, rather than a dorky wannabe.
