Looks great. You're going to find a lot of people internationally are going to be touchy about the name.

Oh fer chrissakes, it's not that big of a deal. Don't be so sensitive about some guys name for his bike. Would it really be any different if he called it "Kamikaze"?

FWIW, I like it. Good to see someone doing their own building. That's what it's all about.
