    Name that bike

    Choices shouldn't be so limited, we need a write-in choice. The chosen name will be with us for a LONG time.

    Seems like Slant-Six has been nominated at the favorite forum name with almost 40% of vote.

    V = shape of the engine and R = "Reihenmotor" (or straight engine).

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VR6_engine
    Who made this comparison? The VR6 engine is a V-engine not a "Reihenmotor" (= inline engine).

    The VR is a 'Vee' engine, but with the 'rows' of cylinders offset and tilted from each other by an angle of either 10.6 degrees (??) or 15?? - instead of the more common 45??, 60??, or 90?? as found on conventional Vee engines.

    The Dodge slant-six is one of the most reliable engines they've ever had. Don't beat up on Dodge!
    Maybe they even looked at the Dodge engine for the idea?

    Not sure you can use slant six in any discussion involving performance. It was a reliable motor, but very pedestrian.

    slant 6, great motor surrounded by rust. I think a hole rusted in my fender on the way home from the dealer. My last screwing from the Chrysler Corporation.

    slant 6 looks like a better choice

    One year we took a dodge slant 6 into the rome junk parade ,before the parade , we blew out one cylinder. With the bad cylinder piston and conecting rod removed the slant 5 still ran good ,through the whole parade!

    This years...
