I think this guy is ahead of us in implementing good ideas to come to the fantastic FE.
Very interesting to follow his improvements.

Maybe it can be a sticky article in this motorcycle/scooter catagory????
American and Europe had better get with it,enclosed cabin motorcycles ,tilters are a huge improvement to the existing infrastructure.They reduce grid locks,emissions,oil imports[if there were large numbers]We need to push these companies to step outside their comfort zone.Thanks for your interest.

It'll reduce gridlock and emissions until the breeders see all that wide open road and easy driving and decide to fill it all in with spawn.
