    Good Evening Everyone,

    My bike made it into an online motorcycle article. The “magazine” is called Rideapart, and the link is here. Besides spelling my last name wrong, the article is fairly factual.
    I’m not usually one to toot my own horn, but I was pretty proud to be written about. The writer saw my bike parked on the street one night and left me a note asking to meet and possibly write an article.

    Gilbert

    Congrats Gilbert. #79
    The plug for your bike at Socal Motor Bicycle Racing was a plus.

    I spam all over!

    Any good posts should be welcomed.

    I enjoyed the well written article and photos. I can see why the writer probably stopped in his tracks with your amazing build, it's mechanical eye candy for sure.

    I'm late arriving at this party, can you give me the link as well? I'd like to share it with a wider audience.

    You don't hang around, do you? That's pushing on a good bit.

    Thanks Ludwig,

    I give it my best. I figure if you don’t push the limit, you don’t know where the limit is. I usually wash out the front end and fall at least once in the day.

    I used to run slightly soft on my fronts so they pushed early but with feel. Your bike might not work the same way though.
