Default Re: 40 MPH Club

I too have had big fast motorcycles and raced them on a track. This is pure fun and learning to build motors myself. I actually have a young, small, aero rider to put on it at Bonneville. I really enjoy the engineering and tuning plus it is truly fun to ride. I have done quite a bit of vehicle testing over the years for customers and builders so I am paying close attention how this bike is handling as the speed increases. If it starts to feel unstable we will either modify it or build another frame entirely. My rider and I were discussing steering dampeners yesterday and with the way things feel so far that may be all we need in the end. I am not out there being a daredevil at all. I do wind it up to see how it reacts but I keep the environment as controlled as can be.
