    Cars are finally "braking" through to bike technology.

    Delphi is developing a two disc per wheel braking system called the "Maximum Torque Brake". It replaces the single disc of conventional brakes with two discs, giving four contact surfaces instead of two. The result is up to 1.7 times the torque output of a conventional single disc system of the same effective diameter in a more compact and more efficiently cooled configuration.

    Under seat exhaust can't be far behind.

    I was watching a "custom bike builder challenge" on the Discovery channel where a guy built a exhuast/rear fender combo on his bike (a chopped hog) and mounted a seat on it. He didn't factor in the fact that the exhaust got the fender hot. Needless to say, halfway through the ride to the event, the seat caught fire.

    I saw that too, last night. Billy Lane, I think his name was, and I must say I thought his bike was awesome.

    Good Luck and Godspeed!

    the power of brakes is still limited by tire grip and or ABS.

    That's what I was thinking. You could have brake pads and rotors that grip so hard that it instantaneosly stops the wheels from rotating but that doesn't mean the car will stop on a dime right? Just a thought...

    I like the other one better, even though Billy Lane had some nice details to his, and who wouldn't love having a fat tire like that on the end of ANYTHING. But too many things just went wrong while building Billy's for me to be comfortable plunking down the 50 grand or so it takes to buy one of those things (like I got that kinda dough...).

    supposedly two smaller ones make everything down the line smaller as well, freeing up valuable space under the hood of a car as well as 1/2 the peddle pressure required to use it. There's more in the article.
