So is it the rake or the trail that determines how fast or slow a bike steers? Lot of things I read and hear seem to use the two interchangeably at random? Which is it?

Here at Motorcycle.com
we get to ride all of the newest, latest, and greatest motorcycles
on the planet. However, more often than not, our time with each bike spans the course of weeks, maybe months (but definitely not years), as new bikes are constantly flowing through our proverbial garages, waiting to get tested. This means we have reviews of almost every motorcycle on the market, but it also means that we lack firsthand experience learning about long-term durability and maintenance. So, when our readers ask about the reliability of a certain make or model, it’s a difficult question to answer, as reliability testing requires ownership for several years – something we simply aren’t in a position to provide.
Thankfully, the folks at Consumer Reports
have compiled a motorcycle reliability study
, gathering information from more than 11,000 riders, sharing their experiences on more than 12,000 motorcycles
purchased new between 2008 and 2014. With this data, CR
adjusted for mileage ridden over a 12-month span and estimated failure rates. Like golf, the lower the number (or percentage, in this case), the better the score. CR’s language in the link above is vague, using words like “trouble prone” and not defining what constitutes a failure. Nonetheless, the results are still relevant. Here they are, from worst to best.

Excuse the noob question, but what’s the difference between a transverse V-Twin and a longitudinal one, and what are the advantages of each?
It has to do with the orientation of the crankshaft
. Any engine, be it a V-Twin, V-Four, or inline-Four, is considered to be “transverse” if its crankshaft lies perpendicular to the motorcycle’s wheels, i.e. across the frame, parallel to the axles. Most motorcycles
have transversely mounted cranks, including all Harley-Davidson
V-Twins, nearly all four-cylinder sportbikes like the Yamaha R1
, Kawasaki ZX-10R
, Aprilia RSV4
, all Ducati
V-Twins and V-Fours… including the Monster 797
pictured on the left, above.
Chain or belt drive to the bike’s rear wheel is simplest and lightest with this layout, and having the crankshaft
spinning in the same plane as the rear wheel means power can be transferred through the gearbox and straight on into the drive chain
and rear sprocket without making any power-sucking changes of direction.
