    Haha! Never a truer word was spoken! Unless you were to say your line is tighter now than it ever was. ;-)

    I know what you are saying. You might be interested in the article in the latest Classic Racer about the RC45 Honda which Kocynski and Slight raced in about 1996. It describes the handling and set-up - there is a contradiction in it. I raced regularly for about 12 years and never realised the importance of the steering geometry. The only other bike I rode which handled similar to my Seeley was a genuine Manx. I only got the Seeley right by accident. The MotoGP guys don't talk much about steering geometry and ride height - Sometimes what is NOT said is more important than what IS said.

    The RC45 had a sprag clutch.
