ok. i drove from north alabama down to gulf port,ms.my mother-in-law lives down there.thats where i unloaded my bike and took off from.yea, if you really want to see a town do it on a motorized bicycle.everywhere i went people were like "did you ride that all the way from alabama". lol! it was a good test for our set-ups (Home Page
) alot of sand and grit on the roads and i got no wear on our drive roller.the bike never gave me one second of trouble.thats what i really like about the friction drives.there simple. as long as its not wet you have a very dependable set-up.i think i might have sold a few units from people that had never seen motorized bikes.anyway, everyone needs to go and tour a town on their bikes.i will probably go down to NEW ORLEANS next time i go.
