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

Had a good ride today, with the new muffler (nice, poppity sound, powerful for its size). The bike ran hard, even doing a wheelie a couple times. It was topping at 25mph, but that's pretty good for a 1" roller! For a bike that goes through a bunch of back streets and city streets, it's better to race to 25 than to wait it out for a higher speed I will just have to brake down from anyway. I was having fun, till I walked up the grassy incline near my house, where I always have to go to the freeway edge where the service road dead ends. I gas the bike to walk it up the hill. Some crap (beer bottle? other?) got in my rear wheel and destroyed half a dozen spokes and bent my tension strap. I had to walk a mile home. Oh well. When I get a new wheel or spokes, should be able to fix it right up. Meanwhile, I've got another bike. Vrooom! I wonder where to get 12g spokes?
1" roller Dax Friction Drive and Tanaka 3300 with mods.
