article makes an interesting point, the engineers were designing race machines, not whoolie machines, which is the main source of the problem.

now that suzuki has learned that some 26,000 riders bought gixxers for whoolies and not twisties (or for both)...well...

i bet suzuki will start desiging bikes with more whoolieing in mind.

only a matter of time before they design them for maximum stoppie distance, ideal balance for circles, etc...interesting stuff
