No, L. Ron Hubbard's cult. I won't take personal instruction from a cultist, even if he does know how to ride. Scientology is friggin' evil, man.

and also makes it complex enough to preclude any chance of working on the bike w/o very expensive tools .

Ofcourse, the dealers will love it, but unless such a bike comes with free service for 3 yrs, 20000 miles, I won't buy it.

I disagree; I remember reading an article on bike aesthetics by kevin cameron sometime back - he discusses how the round shape is much more aerodynamic than the pointed sharp edges at anything less than supersonic speeds - or else, all those motoGP racers will have conical projections in front to improve aerodynamics...



The designers are striving to appeal to our visual sense - and what they design is driven more by the success of early R1/R6 than engineering...

Cool, but isn't engine braking also affected by fly-wheel mass? (And by the same virtue acceleration).
