No worries mate, I take no offense to what anyone says around here.....it's all good fun. I don't have to worry about gettin my undies in a bunch either, you can guess why My bike weighs well over 100lbs. and is no picnic to pedal with the tall gearing and a CVT working against you......to pedal either of our bikes around that track would be more than a tough work out. As far as you guys building more of a race type bike, why? Roland was smokin fast on his dark green mo-sheen, I see no need to go any faster than he was in his finals! And you should have gotten a prize for the loudest bike at the event.......honestly ear piercing LOUD! You really do need to take my bike for a spin so you can feel the power and high-center of gravity it has to offer, seriously. Take care, see ya in the pits!
