Default Re: Safety running WOT (i'm scared)

Keep in mind though, I've been tuning mine off and on over the years, and I keep nuts at proper tightness and bearings properly lubed. Sometimes I tinker for no reason other than I just love to.

However, my preferred method of riding is determined by my bike's comfort zone. On level ground when I get up to about somewhere between 25 and 30 mph I'm guessing, the motor hits just the right revs. And it just hums really smoothly. And it glides at a really nice clip, almost effortlessly. And I hate to move the throttle even a little bit 'cause the bike feels happy like that.
That is a great feeling when that baby is ginning right along in that comfort zone...... gotta love it....!
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
