My 8mm chain breaker arrived, so I replaced my power chain and went for a ride. I passed a half-dozen riders on "fixie" bikes on the highway. That'll give them something to talk about.

Today, I'll ride to my apartment in town, a 16-mile round trip.

It must be about three weeks since I filled my tank with 87 octane. That suits my 2.8 hp Tanaka 47R engine just fine.

Sometimes when I'm at work, I'm plotting my next "design change".

very much like the idea of that electric bike. 50mph is amazingly fast on a bike like that...

Shorted chain and shored up engine mount. The HF loves warm weather. Sweet rides. She hummed along

That was a cool read Adas. I honestly think the future is Ebikes and Ecars. The battery is the thing and some amazing advances are being made. Just my thunking but believe for now it will be some sort of hybrid. The big question being the portability of energy and storage. Dunno, some really great stuff is being worked on.

got my motor from daemon bikes.

have to say, i'm very, very impressed with the quality of the motor, and everything else that came with it.

just got it mounted on the bike (need to finish the wiring, and throttle) but overall it's a very well done motor, not only did all the case bolts get replaced with quality ones, but i could also tell that they did open the motor up because the clutch wasn't locked in place by dried grease like my grubee one was.

got her out and running! ^-^

took a bit to get her to wake up (figured with a new engine) decided to run the new muffler (no cat in this one, it just baffles me.....snork) but i can very much tell, it can't breath like the previous muffler did.

aka
old muffler, the one with cat, and an energy drink baffle.
versus
catless, baffled muff.
