    ^^^ hahah true that. however, I find the overall design remarkably pleasing. great flow and integration - helped, as always in design exercises, by the lack of such real-world necessities such as mirrors, signal, etc...

    Yeah it's cool and all but the whole idea of it really comes across as a motorcycle designed by someone who's never ridden a motorcycle.

    Now this is more like it.

    you mean, lights?






    As far as actual mirrors, i can remember only a mere 8 years ago some sport-bike riders refused to use them..

    "nothing back there i need to see" was a regular punch-line.. seems to be sticking around.

    i've gone out for a ride in California with only one mirror on the left side.. i didnt enjoy it much though, apparently i use it often at stop lights

    I can hardly wait for someone here to throw their leg over one.

    It looks (Tron style) futuristic, but, with all the computer enhanced gadgetry on bikes in recent models, who knows?

    This could be the next step in 2 wheeled excitement.

    No person, that's never thrown a leg over her, can tell.

    I look forward to that report.
    There are old riders and there are bold riders. There aren't any old, bold riders.

    Ride safe folks.
