Description and History

A civilian recreational bike, this high performance motorcycle was used extensively by ace pilot Isamu Alva Dyson as his own personal road vehicle. A two-seat sport-touring motorcycle, the bike features compromised seating much like a standard with both driver and passenger sitting somewhat forward but also enjoying a semi-reclined position. The bike featured a striking red colored fairing but had no luggage carrying capability. This make of motorcycle was also low riding and quite long from front tire to rear. The sport-tour motorcycle utilizes a superconductive motor and a rim drive system, in which the drive mechanism is built into the wheel rims. Isamu himself had great affinity for the open road and loved the exhilaration of driving fast and somewhat recklessly. Early in his posting to the New Edwards Base, Isamu invited young UN Spacy Operator Lucy Macmillan for a ride on his bike, a ride best described as "spirited."
