Default Does "the shape of the vessel matter more than the size of the engine"?

You may have seen this video, possibly posted on the forum sometime before, but worth a repost - it's hilarious. Even the guy on the motorcycle moves into superman: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Iz7...youtu.be&t=11s

Riding smarter and faster (when gravity is on your side), not sure about safer though :-)

Enjoy,

Engine size matters in this case.

Actually, no: without the shape in narrow profile, low drag coefficient - the power of the engine is useless, especially at Bonneville
