    Ohh I've got a nice one but it's a Guzzi No as Nice as the JAP or Matchless but still stylish. I like the way the carbs and filters splay the hood.

    Rotary exhausts run pretty hot. No valves = suck, squish, bang, SEE YA!
    A lot of fuel goes out the exhaust in a big port motor too.

    Come to think of it, why don't pro racing companies capitalize on rotary bike engines?

    I'd think the power delivery would be pretty damn smooth.
