OK, I've heard most all the slurs in your rhetoric but one.



So, I feel compelled to ask; (why do I feel I'll regret this?) exactly *WHAT* is a "wagonburner"?

This guy's thinking is seriously flawed. Especially in the stability department. If you could make a bike that has zero gyro effect from the wheels, it would be impossible to ride. It would be as stable doing 200mph as it is when standing still with both feet on the pegs. A bike needs the resistance to directional change provided by the gyro effect of the wheel to stay upright.

Wow. Talk about obscure reference! I saw one in a museum somewhere. That's the attack plane with the twin turboprops mounted in the fuselage and counter-rotating propellers, right?

If we don't give the liar some attention, he'll probably off himself.

I'm stuck on the horns of dilemma.

Yep, it had a bad habit of ripping the prop-gearbox assembly right out of the fuselage when the gears jamed. Test pilots were were augering into Muroc like lawn darts.



When I looked at the web page that's the first thing I though of...

I only read part of it and I want to sue the company for taking part of my life. I don't care if you have counter rotating rotors or not. If you do a wheely and come down with out the wheels being lined up you'll get a wobble. Bikes are more stable the faster you go do to the inertia of the wheels. I'm going to quit typing now cause it's a waste of time too...

You guys are all missing the point, this guy is a genius. He's just found a way to write off all of his track days, tires, motorcycles...etc as a business expense. Simply brilliant.

When he crashes he can go get treatment from this guy http://www.bahlaqeem.com/index.php?c...me_Pag e&=SID

He goes back in time to help avert the injury from ever happening. Only 60 bucks.
