Checked and topped up the tires on the beast and went out for a while. The smooth front wheel is a little different to ride on, but once I'm used to it it should be fine.

Checked all the bolts again today, retorqued the head, greased all the bearings, and ran a compression check.

After 38 miles it shows 30 lbs of compression. Good bad indifferent? I do not know. My buddies arrow 4.5 hp shows 132.5 lbs.

Sumptin must be wrong, Scooby.......I didn't even think they'd run at all with 30lbs. Maybe the tester was leaking.

I think they'd run with more around 60-80psi. Which is effectively half power. I'm with xseler, leaky tester.

My other band is a cross between rockabilly and just rock.

With all this electric talk I have to say my favorite instrument is my Martin acoustic, its how I learned to play guitar and still my favorite. I told myself years ago that when I turned 50 I would put my rock days behind me and go acoustic but folks think Im still 30 (its all that good living I did in my younger days lol) so I keep at it.

Ill try and post a youtube vid although Im concerned that there might be a cuss word here or there in any of our videos lol. (generally I don't curse)

Dude. No worries. No judgement. I play keys and do a bit of production.
