Fast but twitchy handling because of the short wheelbase.

Yes, as I understand it on jet engines similar constructs are to break up energy nodes, similar to sound peaks (frequency build-up nodes). I did such a thing on my hovercraft, can be done on leading or trailing edges.

I suspect on the motorcycle it is a styling statement, but I'll take what I can get when it comes to science and aerodynamics even if misunderstood - it's a start.

Looks like a good application of the whale tribuckles . The shortest distance between two points is a straight line the most efficient is a vortex

Those would be the leading not trailing edge kind.

The more I look at it, the more I fear laying it down and being serrated like a knife.

Those edges could have been curved and wavy in the interest of safety in my opinion.

Plus a Gene Winfield car and a stock Beetle in the background.

Maybe that's where I got this idea:

Very impressive handwriting.

Another reason why everything fell apart in 2001.

The referenced Transit video features Sabine Schmitz.
