Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

It is geared pretty high with balls of torque and acceleration from 6-1/2 HP so may have to go to a bigger rear sprocket. It ran in the mid 50's with 2nd gear.
Nice looking rig you got there, those fenders scare the crap outta me though..... sure hope one those fender mounts dont decide to give it up when your cruising at 50mph...... that could get ugly real quick......ouch.....LOL!

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
