"Trail" is the path you have to take to get to the answer.
"Rake" is the money they take in from advertising.

Oh goodie, it's gonna get interesting if this post turns up being a between the lines reading of "Zen and The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance". Specially if that path to get to the answer is curvy

So I google Zen and sport bikes and voila...


Technology will soon make motorcycling something you do not recognize Ö although you may not fully understand why it is unrecognizable.
Hardware sensors and software algorithms will combine to allow a rider with no experience whatsoever to ride a course faster than Valentino Rossi. Lean angles, accelerative and braking forces will all be optimized to fully exploit the coefficient of friction available from the contact patches offered by the tires given the road surface conditions.


This all means that the rider will be able to ignore the ride. He (or she) can work on his tax return, for example, while riding. No need to focus on the task at hand, because there is no task. The forgotten part of motorcycling will be the essence of the joy it offers. Concentration. Focus. These are the foundations of joy when riding, or, at least, the traditional foundations.
You donít need to understand Zen (ďunderstanding ZenĒ is an oxymoron, but thatís an entirely different topic). Unqualified concentration and focus while riding a motorcycle (required because of the inherent dangers) bring a mental peace and joy that will be missing from our brave new world. Reason alone to hang on to the motorcycles that still require it.

Maybe, subconsciously, this is the reason when I purchase a new motorcycle I get it without ABS. And try to find a bike without EFI!
