    Sounds good, nice writeup, but too much performance for a bloke like me with no talent and little self-control.

    About the gearing issue - this bike would probably benefit from a 3:1 ratio box instead of the more typical 2:1. 100 kph in 1st gear and 300 kph in top, theoretical speed, or thereabouts. Or maybe a 2.6:1 for 115 in low and 299 in top if you prefer a closer ratio box. Either one should give 3850 rpm @ 100 kph in top, or 130 @ 5000 rpm.
