My face hurts from grinning. I'm in SF, so I went through the Presidio and under the bridge. I was trying to ride up a hill to get out of the park and my poor bike couldn't make it, a cop car passed and gave me one of those "that's real cute, chump" looks.

Made it out eventually, though. I've got a '78 Newport L with a Proma GP and a little foam filter on it with a 60 jet. I'm thinking maybe a larger jet would help me climb those hills- I'm probably about to blow my shit up.

It's super slow off the line, so I'm trying to fix that. Mid-range is amazing fun. Within the next three weeks I'll have the Treats 50cc kit on there, but if anybody has any tips to help off the line I'd be really appreciative.

I love it. I'll try to make it out to a COTL ride soon, but I manage a cafe and I have a pretty hectic schedule.
