Oohhh, I don't know about the chassis they chose. I mean these are MIT folks, so who am I to argue, but Mark Miller had a bitch of a time at the TT last year on the BMW. He did say it was awesome on a race track, but that Honda's seemed to be the best handling bikes on the TT last year. But now that I give it a bit more thought, maybe the twitchiness will be a benefit and not a hindrance at the slower 100mph laps.

Thoughts?

Well I have a local dealer offering me a complete 2007 CBR1000RR for $2k with a bad motor (need that rich uncle, anyone). It is SO CLEAN! I would love to test out that great handling on my personal electric. I should build one of each and do some exstensive testing in the name of science. Just need to convience someone to fund this project.
