Turns out adv'er Serp. asked Sjaak this question in Daytona a few years ago and Sjaak's reply was "I like the bike."
I've been waiting to ask Sjaak for myself and just got off the phone with him. His reply was pretty cool. He said because he "feels it in his heart." He told of how people have commented on how uncomfortable it must be and he's told them of his "comfort with it in his heart." And that "if you feel it in your heart you can succeed at anything." Being a sportbike rider myself I find great merit in those words.
