    No threadjack at all.
    Excuse me Santa, could I please have in my shed the following:
    1957 TT Moto Guzzi 350
    AJS 7R, complete with tuned-length open meg.
    A supercharger to go on my Vmax......as long as the carb sticks out the top of course.
    One of those goofy 10ft long slammed Jap low-rider Ginza maxiscoots.
    A 1970s raked, stretched, hard tail 100+ci hotrod Sportster........with whitewalls.
    A VW Beetle streeter, flat black with flames and chrome hubcaps, that does low-12s on radials.

    A small air-cooled scoot that sits on 100kph all day into the teeth of a storm! :lol3

    I have a bit of time sitting around while tracking satellites in the wee hours ( http://ilrs.gsfc.nasa.gov/about/index.html ), and started thinking that maybe it would be smarter to improve the aero's than double the HP. Not that I intend either at first light, but some of these projects have got me wondering at the possibilities, without making the poor little scoot look like a jellybean that's gone into orbit........

    You know, my old Dad and his crew had the NASA contract back in the 70s to do the calibration flights (Sechelles to Au) to dial-in stations like yours. Always came home reeking of Fosters and raving about how lovely Oz was.

    If you're gonna go extreme aero, please please please do a downsized pimp Ginza lowrider - the roos and bunnies will flee the track.
