    Hmm. I think I might need to build a 450 super single cafe racer. Damn, that would be a fun App Gap bike...

    I think that alex may have ridden one of these?? I can't recall exactly what his connection to them may have been if anything at all.

    It would be cool to see lap times from those bikes vs the same motor motards set up with suspension bits and the same wheels.

    They dont seem cheap enough to me to be a
    real big alternative.

    I mean for that much money you could just race
    a new R6, right?

    Maybe initially, but what about tire cost and that sort of thing? Let alone when more manufacturers come in with wheels and body work prices will drop pretty rapidly I would think. Then if it makes it, a few years down the road used ones will be around and stuff.

    Re: Article in LA Times on Super Singles

    These would definitely be saweet. I also wonder how they compare to a motard. I guess the suspension is set up more like a sport bike with less travel than a tard?
