I've just been riding my bike to and from work lately.
Having problems with second gear. Since gear ratios are very low, I have enough acceleration to skip every other gear.
I bought a card key at my workplace parking structure today. I usually wiggle around the parking entrance arm at the bottom of the steep ramp. My engine has to be tuned well, and gear ratio must be low enough to climb a steep hill. Some of my MB's were not powerful enough to climb the ramp from a dead stop. Luckily, I was able to push my bike into the workplace elevator.
Using the card key will allow me to lift the entrance arm. I will have a running start to ride up the very steep parking ramp.
IBesides my MB's, I will also be commuting to work with a Honda 150cc scooter. Both vehicles are allowed free parking,
Cars and trucks pay $120 monthly. (Visitors pay up to $40 a day.)
