Can you say "hyperlink"?

Sure you can...

Default Hmmm... Deja Vu

'Created by Motorcycle.com staff' ????????? - seems like your story is REMARKABLY like the one on the front page of their website.

What gives....

This makes the lack of new content on the site look even worse.

Was it ever a surprise that the bike was easier to turn than the conventional configuration. I mean that's what all the hype was about, wasn't it past present and future. Iam still waiting for them to go up against the best in Motogp at Laguna like they said they would a couple years ago.

Kudos on Jeremey Mcwilliams testing the cyzs and the opinions he's giving but when are you going to race the darn thing?

I wish the article had gone into the current fairing debate/battle going on in the electric racing world. There's a smattering of it on CZ's blog:

"There are many debates about why the dustbin (AKA “garbage can”) fairing was ruled illegal in ’57. The reasons range from aesthetics to politics but one of the undisputed reasons is that several crashes were attributed to the dustbins and their negative effect on handling- and that was on a 1957 motorcycle! What made the dustbin fairing dangerous for 50’s era racing motorcycles makes it suicidal for 2010 era racing motorcycles."

I applaud motoCzysc's ability to keep investors on the hook.

I just went to website, and I don't see anything to indicate that he is soliciting investors for the project. Did you find that somewhere?

That's my little personal joke, that MotoCZy is just a guy who lives off of a constant con. We've been hearing about the "wunderbike" for years, yet never see anything really. I've heard hundreds of times that MotoCyz is going to field a world beater. Yet it just never come to fruition.

Someone is footing the bills. This kind of stuff ain't cheap.
