Nice!

But I'm not so sure about the bit about encouraging a lazier style of riding. No problems with high-revs & multiple gear changes being the order of a section or two.

I have got the magazine and I am scanning the pages and get to the Fireblade article and on page 48 in the middle is a picture of a swing that looks a lot like the Speed triple swing arm to me.

If at first you don't succeed, hit it with a bigger hammer
