What limits the RPM: I once read a Mercedes-B master engineer's interview and he was talking about the max velocity of the piston as a limiting factor in building long lasting engines. I made an effort to memorize that critical speed also, and somehow 18 m/s sticks to my mind. (I know I am making complete fool out of myself, it probably was something totally different)

He said 526 f/m higher then the usual max, so 4000 would be the expected max.



The limiting factor is the ability to cool the cylinder wall and piston. At some point they'll melt.

Well well whoopass, you should watch more travel programs to learn from other countries.



For starters we don't have V-Stars. They are called Drag Stars, probably because their riders prefer to dress differently. Valkyries are called imaginatively "F6C": this is because Wagner, the opera composer and paint gun manufacturer, his family was assosiated with Hitler, who waxed so many butts that some people thought the name still unsellable (like the guys who buy this sort of bike would care).



Secondly, there is a cruiser market, look how I am called, H-D (also Buell) too, and actually growing well lately that dollar value has gone plenty down. In other words, the longer you guys blow the money in Irak, the more dollar will go down and H-D will sell in Yurup.

Default Re: MT01

Didn't that thing have an old 4 cylinder Chevy Nova motor?



Thinking about that urapeean MT01 again...



Styling of the production version MT01 reminds me of the Detroit panic of 1958, when automobile manufacturers tacked on every conceivable doo-dad to wow the public. I'd hate to go "over the bars" and have my kneecaps removed by those cheese-grater air cleaners. Something akin to getting impaled on a '58 Buick dashboard knob. Who needs all that fooforaw? Why can't someone make a kick-arse V-Twin that looks like an XR750?



If you notice, the production bike has a few vestiges of the MT01 prototype, but not many. None of the even better looking MT03 concept made it over. Pshaw.



Squidmobile. It'll never replace Mr. Max.

I'm sure they'll have an assault banana ban sometime soon here.

You show up at my place you are gonna have to deal with the man:

It's true that road riding is about done for around here. The latest I've ever been able to ride very far is Thanksgiving. Dirtbikes run on the snow though, so not all is lost. Besides why worry about winter riding when there are six world class ski areas within short distances and all the free powder wet dreams are capable of conjuring?

Default Self-defense!

No. They'll just have the govt offer free self-defense classes.
