I built my ride for the sole purpose of transportation to and from work. I have a lot of problems "breaking it in". But I am glad to say that I've been trouble free for the last 150 miles and I'm loving the ride...But now it's getting REAL cold in the mornings! I drive 4 miles to work, doing 30MPH top speed most of the time. There are 5 stop lights I get stuck at sometimes (oh the looks folks give me!) but its just a straight shot down the road, no turning involved. And there is this one hill (big @$$ hill) that makes my speed drop from 32 to 24 by the time I hit the top. Future upgrades: chrome muffler (already purchased, just no time to port and polish and mount) Jackshaft kit Front fork suspension seat post shock dual brakes, hopefully disk new paint job and maybe a performance carb (eh, why not right?) and now how much have I saved? well, I spent $50 on the bike, $250 on the kit, $50 on extra parts = $350 +/- my truck gets 17MPG, so [email protected] ~ 29.5 gallons, now @ $4.00/gallon, that comes to $118. my bike get ~160+/-MPG, so [email protected] ~3 gallons, now @$4.00/gallon, that comes to $12 so I saved $106 in gas. grrr, I need to ride for another 6 months to break even...and then I'm in the black!
