Probably why they didn't ask you to engineer it!!
That was meant as a small poke, not trying to piss off anyone.
Give it a couple of years in the wild, buy the third revision and I bet it'll be a great bike.........if not the other manufactures are catching up!! I'm sure they'll be a lot of cool bikes to choose from if you don't like the wet-boxer.
