Aye Michael,

Thank you for posting. Some real engineering and technical know-how, for once.  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Very pleased to see the Foale front end incorporated and note that the Brittain was also analysed. Shame he didn't make a proper job of the front end and make a Norman Hossack one. That would be the proper way to do it.

Performance, way beyond my capabilities and many others, but wouldn't it be good if we junked MotoGP and returned with SuperMono as the premier class of motorcycle racing?  ;D

Yes indeed it would Bill and yes an extremely lovely piece of engineering. Tony Foale a man all to often over looked (IMVHO) when it comes to some of the engineering we now almost take for granted.
Thanks for posting the link 👍👍
Cheers, Michael

"Being creative with the counterbalance shaft position also allowed the use of a reverse rotation crank configuration."
