No one's commented, so I submit the Rosbergs.

Quite so. The vagaries of the randomness of birth slap us all one way or another, I was in the queue for reincarnation and I noticed my shoelace was undone. I quickly knelt to tie it and a single male soul pushed past me and came out as Prince Albert of Monaco. Grrrrrr

Nico has no doubt benefited from his parentage in a way that I didn't, but to be fair he's certainly fast enough in his own right to be where he is, and more power to him

That is a truly beautifull bike, allthough the extent to which it pays homage to the original will be debated ad nauseum.
Niko stands on his own, I was more jealous of growing up in Monaco.

Yup, I've seen a range of 'debate'* kicking around but I don't personally see the connection between this RSD Oilhead & the original R90S as anything other than promotional/referential. For me it boils down to shape & form, and the RSD bike has what my eyes would take to be a coherent unified line, with a pleasing integrated tip to tail feel - the only query being the footpeg position, and how that might feel relative to the handlebar height. But then I would imagine the setup they've applied may be adjustable enough to allow for the individual riders preference or needs? I've no real right to an opinion as the bike passes the simple 'Could I build that?' test by some considerable margin, not least because I don't even have the resources to get me an Oilhead to play with...



* i.e. all that "I am a know nowt twat and you will bend to my 'opinion' or else" type rant/ramblings one tends to come across out there in the big wide world.
