Of course I do. I do stupid things all day long. But I generally try to do less of them and I try not to blame others first and myself last.

If you have worked with people in general, you will likely have learned that as soon as you put two people together you have reached critical mass for idiotic discussion and behavior. Pretty much doesn't matter what two two people you chose, there will be situations or topics where they behave like idiots. One person alone is often better, but in modern times the second guy is always there "on the net".

From experience I'm an absolute cynic in terms of how stupid humans in general (and myself in particular) can be and I'm totally with Einstein on this: "Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about th’universe!"

That's what I figured ... I'll certainly give it a try and there is an about 50% chance I'll get a 2014 or so.

materials and oils are better now, so bearings can be narrower. Also with liquid cooling, they can put in tighter clearances because of less temperature extremes, lighter oil can be used, which will make more efficiency.

I do not think this will be a worry.

I'm going to put another 30k miles on my '11 GSA and let the dust settle. There needs to be a gearhead smiley btw.

The most hidden place to put the radiators is around the rear wheel, but I think someone already did that, Aprilla maybe. So not in the patent. But smaller companies without deep pockets can sell relocation kits, and get away with it.

George W. Bush: DUH!
Kumar Patel: That's so hypocritical!
George W. Bush: Oh yeah? Well let me ask you something, Kumar, do you like giving hand jobs?
Kumar Patel: No sir.
George W. Bush: Do you like gettin' hand jobs?
Kumar Patel: [smirking] Heh, yeah.
George W. Bush: Yeah well, that makes you a fuckin' hypocriticizer too, so shut the fuck up! Now smoke my weed.
