I see your point, but I would be conscientious enough to avoid buying such a finicky vehicle altogether, unless it was something pretty special. Too difficult to cater to such specialization here in the Empty Quarter.

My patience for things that I see as frivolously complicated diminishes each year.

Nah it's for supertankers and container ships. It has an efficiency rating of over 50% at maximum power RPM. BSFC at that rpm (102 ) is .278 pounds per hour. Your motorcycle probably has a BSFC of .5 or so. BTW it makes over 100,000 horsepower at just over 100 RPM. What a piece of work.
