I have been thinking about how much power would be too much power, to where it becomes unsafe.

What do you think the magical engine size is max you would feel comfortable riding?

I don't think it's engine size that matters. SPEED is what makes things unsafe. You could put a 250cc motor on these things and still be safe if you keep it to reasonable speeds.

... true :)

It only took me a couple weeks after getting my current car to see how easy it was to hit it's top speed (145mph). Wasn't hard :)

But honestly, I don't think I would want to go 70mph on a bicycle, so I don't think I'd be testing that limit :)

Yea, the wheels on my bike aren't exactly straight so over 20ish I wouldnt do..(if I can get it to 20) haha

I am trying to work out a couple new parts to get a new bike put together. I just need to get ahold of a new motor.
