Default Re: 40 MPH Club

My job is lucky i dont ride to work or i would likely ride right past it now and then ha ha. I want to run at Bonneville but keep that fun also. A lot of bicycles do get sketchy at speed. My last high end road bike weighed about half what this bike did before the motor was bolted on and the wheels maybe a quarter. I got close to 50 downhill on that one a few times. The geometry is much more stable on this one and 40 has me paying attention but it is stable enough. The brakes are even close to strong enough but could use pads with more bite. I have the set up pretty dialed in where I brake and clutch at the same time with my left and throttle and brake with my right. I ran a left hand brake and clutch on my GSXR so I'm used to it.
