one thing I do like though, bikes keep getting lighter and quicker, cars just keep getting heavier
Oh, ok...

I suppose the forged pistons and crankshafts and titanium valves and 1 piece blocks have nothing to do with their redlines.


Now to make your argument for you, you could say but yeah they only last 15-25K miles due to the extremely tight tolerances and high reving stresses. But then again at <$10K per copy...
