I have no doubt that 40mph is faster than the average speed on the 405 at almost any given hour of the day. That's the irony in all this. I can't legally ride on the 405. There are times of the day, on a few major streets where "Wide Open Throttle" 40 is just a bit too slow for comfort. I need to be able to cruise at 45 mph with a little power in reserve. Which is why I'm making the jump to a 97cc Lifan motor. I'm gonna reduce the overall gear ratio a bit as well to try to accomplish that feat.

This is what "40" looks like on Venice Blvd. in some traffic, on the weekend. LOL
