Re: A little perspective.
The China engine was never meant to go 35 mph as much as the ads say. Of course with the right gearing or Pablo's kit you can ride that fast safely but no engine will last if kept at redline as your cruising speed.
The China engine I believe is a perfect engine because it tests your... everything as far as patience and restraint. That little 2 stroke just wants to scream. Only YOU can control that urge to go all out.
When it breaks down it tests your willingness to continue. It's like a journey. Just how far do you want to go down that rabbit hole?
That's why it rules. I'm still going down that rabbit hole.
You have found the fountain of youth. Ride and forever stay young.
