Are bike designs inspired by arthropods?

Is it my foundation as a wildlife biologist or is that we are moulded by what we see around us; Every time i see a bike in a certain way and in a certain light, i see an animal. To say that very often i recognize an insect form is not to be taken as an insult. Insects probably have the most elegant structures that have been superbly fine tuned over evolutionary time.

I wonder what goes through the head of motorcycle designers when they make their drawing, i am sure it is to do with aerodynamics and riding comfort. But how these specifications translate down to a structure that is inscetile always baffles me. Nevertheless i take great pleasure in photographing them and especially when i am on my belly trying to find that angle when then stop being machines and start staring at you with their compound eyes!
