Feature: Balancing act

Most days, I do not envy the role of a motorcycle manufacturer. Imagine pouring your sweat and blood into a project that takes years to research and develop and then have a handful of boffins who call themselves motorcycle journalists come in and take your creation apart, telling you what you did right and what you could have done better.

If it were me, that’s a recipe for a few broken noses right there. Thankfully, it isn’t me and I’m, in fact, the one who’s delivering these opinions. Yes, that’s most days, but then, there are some of those days when the stars align and all that R&D results in something truly great. Something that comes together with the balance that makes everyone happy. And that’s a difficult thing to achieve, this balance. But today is one such day.
