I spent a lot of thought on what I
needed and wanted from ProjectVF. Several things were obvious, such as the
plush seat and the stretched frame and some kind of steering. Other things,
such as the front suspension and passive safety protection, were part of the
evolution. The more I thought and sketched, the more I found one idea
leading to another.
ProjectVF has to be a daily rideable motorcycle but
with additional features for comfort, ease of use, easy maintenance, safety
and protection. I want to make everything as rugged as possible in the hopes
of few breakdowns. If something does break, I want to be able to get to it
easily. It can't overheat. It can't leak. It has to be dependable.
The vehicle has to look advanced, with the semi-exposed front suspension
topped by a stylish body. Fabricated parts need to have a quality finish.
The prototype will be a little rough around the edges but the final version
should be sleek and unique.
I took all of my ideas and divided them up into little subgroups, then
set each as a goal, some of which can been see at the left.
