Nonsense. It's a conversation on the internet that became a curiosity among people who ride, build or repair motorcycles mostly for pleasure. Skeptics have questioned the sensibility of the project, others have looked on with a mix of amusement or bemusement. You're just as invested as the naysayers, you just feel the criticism is overblown and now you are responding in the same way but in defense of the project.

I would have said "damn, what a bunch of assholes!"
