Yeah, steering dampers! Amen to that one.
Undertail exhaust has the neat advantage that its protected in a crash (to a point) but it comes at the expance of not having a trunk, and 10lbs more weight. which sucks... but the whole protected thing is cool.
The 10 lbs thing seems a legitimate gripe to me, but the trunk space one is just silly, IMO (not getting on you specifically Vash, I've heard this same complaint from numerous people about all manufacturers). Who rides a sportbike for it's storage space? The only thing I've ever needed that space for was an insurance card, registration, and maybe a crushed coke can to use if I parked on blacktop/gravel. If I need to carry anything else I break out the backpack.
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
