Default Re: First motor'd bike, what ya think?

I took the fenders off my first build after reading the warnings on this site. Today, I bought a second bike for second build, loaded the new bike in my pickup and hit the Interstate to go home. Noticed in my rear-view mirror that the highway speed wind was shaking the tail end of the rear fender side-to-side. Now, the bike itself will only max out at 30-35 mph, but at top-end speed, vibration is a big factor. So if you intend to run your bike with fenders, I vote for beefing up the struts or whatever they're called.
