Ultimate merger of man and machine.

since the teenage days of Gran Tourismo, and the sequels winning that formula one, working at a race track as a mechanic, to a degree in mech eng, the pursuit continues. Blisteringly fast. Dreamed of one day building my own micro sized retardely fast race car. Then a guy says to me "you should by a bike "

Then the Isle of man began to make sense....

So did moto gp as a whole...

Now all we need to do is add aerodynamic downforce to motorcycles...

Keep the rubber side down, God bless.

downforce on a motorcycle doesn't make any sense in a turn.

winglets on bikes are to manage airflow not create downforce.

Ha, I wish I had a fireblade and the riding skills of Guy Martin. Then I could actually do legit power wheelies. The SV650 doesn't quite have enough.

Its for air flow control to manage cooling. Not downforce.
