Default Re: Running your bike in place

I used a bike trainer the first time I fired my motor bike. Just don't run it over 5 minutes while stationary.
Before I had a center stand, I would use the bike trainer to hold my bike level while doing maintenance and mods.

They came in 1st and 2nd in the small 4 stroke class and
2nd and 3rd in the race of all the classes.
Not only does msrfan build some beautiful Briggs bikes they perform
pretty well too!

A pic at the starting line of the all the classes race.

This probably goes without saying, but I'm paranoid this way: in addition to a fan to keep the engine cool, I'd open a couple windows when you do this. Carbon monoxide and all.

You probably knew this, and it was implied, so forgive me. Couldn't help myself.
