I've been on another forum and the knockers of the Fury are a tough audience; I'm from Australia so I wrote slowly and misspelled mhy words so they could keep up. I have to agree though, bikes have evolved too far. The first motorcycle was steam driven so I reckon anything with an internal combustion engine is a pussy girlie bike. A few years later a couple of Yankees flew an aeroplane at Kittyhawk. They made it turn by warping the wings, so modern planes with ailerons and other modern chit are pussy girlie planes. In the nineteenth and early twentieth century motive power was transmitted to industry with chains and belts until some drongo came up with direct drive, we're lucky industry did not collapse. I look at my lawnmower and lament that with exception of some stationary engines and motorbikes, hardly anything is air cooled anymore. I saved my biggest gripe 'till last. The use of PU polymers (plastic) has insidiously crept into the manufacture of our vehicles, believe it or not. Anyone driving a car built after 1980? should be ashamed of themselves and should complain to their government that not enough iron ore is being consumed.
