Nice Video Work

Great job on getting very professional looking video footage for the test ride! Looks like you've got a great support team. I'm glad you are making progress and sharing as you go. Your work inspires us all to get out there in our garages and get our projects done.

People have noted the concern about lack of roll bar. I'll just point out the danger of helmut mass with seatbelts. Race car drivers have adopted the HANS device to help offset this issue. Of course, the best thing is to not crash.

I'm concerned about your ground clearance. It was the big thing I missed on the design of my Delta-11. I learned from Royce C. over on Bikeweb too late that I should have designed my bodywork to have ground clearance at 45 degree lean with suspension fully compressed. I did not take suspension compression into account when designing and so I must drive cautiously through corners - so if it's not too late for your design, figure that into your bodywork builds.
