Re: Question for NORM,PABLO or anyone who knows
What we say around here is to vary the throttle. I rode mine half throttle most of the time and went full to climb the hills then right back to half.
You should be able to do five miles in just a few minutes. You most likely will be doing over 15mph even at half throttle. Personally I never go much over five miles anyway, but I would say ride the bike just take it easy.
However you should wait for a second opinion.
