Care to share with us where you get your facts on this topic? Maybe you live in Japan in Fukushima? Maybe you are a nuclear engineer? Maybe you have had experience working at the Chernobyl site?

As of today, not one person has died from radiation from the Fukushima accident. Zero people.

For those who love the sounds of old GP and other racing bikes such as this one, Phil Read sells a CD, "The Superior Sound of Classic Racing Bikes." At least, I guess he still sells it, out of England. I've listened to it over and over. It includes single, twin, 4, 5(!), and 6 cylinder bikes 250cc and under. Regarding dividing a given displacement into multiple tiny cylinders, this achieves high rpm and corresponding horsepower. Torque is sacrificed. Think Harley Davidson, the opposite.
Hope Noah doesn't feel his thread hijacked. Philip Island is today, Motegi is next weekend!

Noah,
I forgot to ask but...by chance did you visit your MD or a travel medicine clinic prior to your adventure to get your vaccines and medicines in order? (i.e Hep A/B, polio, typhoid, malaria, rabies, Japanese encephalitis, yellow fever, etc...) Just curious as it's one of the things I do.
Hep A and rabies are not terribly uncommon in some of the places you have been. If you head south (SE Asia), you may be entering higher risk areas. If you use mosquito spray regularly, drink bottled water, cook your food well, don't pet the dogs/cats and wear a condom, you will be protected from a lot of bad mojo!
Now back to our regularly scheduled programming...Rock on Noah!
Eddy

I have all of the above. I had a series of shots before I left, and I finished them up in Dublin at a travel clinic there.

I know these guys, Ed March from www.c90adventures.co.uk leads it, he has also taken his Honda c90 from the UK to Malaysia and back, and also took it through the arctic circle, there is a pretty cool video of it here which is a must watch!



14 months till I throw the snow studded tires on my 690r and follow his tracks

To answer your question, yes they all made it back to the UK safe and sound
Crazy pom bastards
Btw, He is making a DVD of the trip to Mongolia and Russia etc which he's going to throw up soon.

Yeah, I stumbled on him on facebook a few days ago. He is a character.

You get more valve area by increasing cylinder numbers. You might get more piston dome area too depending on aspect ratio. The down side is the more cylinders, the more friction.
