looks 'scarey fast'
centi clutches are cool, but take a little time to get used to
(at least mine did )

Next upgrade: 4 petal reed cage w/ Carbon Fiber reeds.
Wait til you get 1000 miles on it and you'll see more power once the motor loosens up.
Nice vid FR31. Can wait to see you hitting those Az. trails.

I finished making my hub spacer and took one more last spin for today.

I am having second thoughts about operating this thing around town or any public road for that matter even at 19mph

The local law enforcement has found a loop hole to confiscate your motorized bicycle if they want to even if you have broken no laws. They will ask you to prove you own the bike and if you cannot produce anything. They confiscate and hold it for a mandatory 30 days. Well, after 30 days it will cost you more then $1000 to get it out of impound. And receipt's dont count! They want you to prove that the state of AZ acknowledges that is your bike. Which there is the problem! We dont have any registration for bicycles that I know of, and the cops dont care. All they care about is to get us off the streets.

I am hearing more, and more Tucson Mb'rs running into this problem. One of our local vendors is considering getting a registration for our MB's to combat this problem. I am all for it!

And even though this is a (cough, cough 48cc motor) it is huge and stands out. No cop will believe it's 48cc.

Can't you register it at your local fire department?

Not that I know of but I will look more into it. Maybe I am just being a wus? Thats what my friend Alex says lol.

Hey! know that I think of it, I could register it as a off-road vehicle and that way I can at least prove ownership. I suppose Dean did not stamp any #'s on it huh? Hmmmmm, I may get tickets but that would stop them from confiscating it.
