I half expected GUMBY to jump on in the middle of the video. Or the GEICO lizard...



Why do all the F1 newbie bike designers INSIST on some wacky front fork/steering gizmo? Give me some phorks & bars, please.



And what's with the countershaft/jackshaft deal? Just what I need, two chains to adjust...



Rotsa ruck. The sun has set on the British Emipre, or so it seems. Maybe it'll leak oil for effect.

I do not think they know that that word, revolutionary, means.



Inconceivable!

First thing I thought of was Buell... look at not only the front brake rotor, but the underslung exhaust... now all it needs is a frame, a V-twin, and front forks...

So I hope that guy's name is **** Glover; I didn't hear the G when he was introduced.



I love how they say it will be faster and have better handling than a MotoGP bike and we're just supposed to believe them. "Oh, I see, you're making the best motorcycle on the planet, interesting."

It's another investment scam.



I couldn't believe the comment from the supposed engineer that they were going to put the handlebars on the fork instead of the frame. WTF?



The Scam:

1- Come up with a "new" idea.

2-Get some media shill (in this case MCN) to help you spew a bunch of PR boolshyt.

3-Tell people that they can get in on the ground floor if they invest today!



Worked for Excelsior-Henderson.

There are plenty of real bikes I'm waiting for ride reports on before I renew my subscription. I don't need to pay for a forum with links to other sites.

Am I going MAD or did the word "think" escape your lips?
