Well fuck me, here I've been thinking that the angle of the fork was related to how the bike steers. Turns out, it's to make it look good! In fact, the entire reason the bike looks the way it does is to make the bike look good!
That's what happens when you have a designer explain why a bike looks the way it does. No, Mr Designer, these features you're touting did NOT originate to satisfy your rules of design. Well, not ALL of them anyway.
And your "cut off" points that say the bodywork shouldn't extend past the rear axle? IMHO bikes with seats/tail sections that short look like shit. I know others here disagree but it just looks fucking stupid to me to have the wheel sticking out past the back of the bodywork that far. Ride it in the rain for a while and see if you can figure out why.
I'm breaking one of my own rules by posting on a forum before noon so I'll shut up before I start talking abtou my lawn. Which really needs to be mowed. Which is one other thing I hate. BAAAHHHHHHH! I'm going back to bed. Wake me when the chocolate covered donuts get here.
I just hurt my back pulling weeds out of my small front lawn yesterday...
