Default Re: I remember when

I remember my first ride- didn't like it all that much-

Didn't feel like I had enough control- too much noise.
getting a dual brake lever and replacing the cruiser bars was the big first step in the right direction .
A better gearing and better rolling tires took out the viration quite a bit then.

Got rid of some of the noise eventually with a longer pipe and sound dampeners, but otherwise just live with a little better- never really open it wide open and get good solid 25-30 mph with no special set-up.

I also recall the Death Race on the open roads and thought the name silly, while reading threads about getting hassled by cops and authorities.

Still think we need a big cross country tour.
