In another post about the fabulous new Udvar-Hazy Center (part of the National Air & Space Museum), frustration with not being able to fly into this terrific new facility was evident. I personally find it appallingly ironic that museums which purport to glorify flight are not accessible...

just read about the new BMW S 1000 RR bike. The complete engine assembly is less than 60 KG. Engine puts out 193HP (112 Nm, 12,000rpm). Wouldn't that one (slightly detuned) make a nice SLA powerplant ;-))
