Re: Riding the hills in Colorado
welcome....better get some snow tires for the pass!!!!i would go with the 2 stroke....they are also easy maintanance and as long as you stick with the big gear or go with a shift kit you should be fine....now 30-40mph...that is a bit of an exageration for a stock motor and gear....upper 20's yeah but youd be taching it to hit that....with your terrain and the large loads your expecting id sacrafice speed for some gear reduction...try the 44 tooth first but you may consider a 50....anyway there is allot of knowledge here that can help you and it may just become an infectious hobby(check the laws and leg. section back about 8 months ago the laws changed favoring us. you may want to print the law if they are not used to seeing mb's)
