wow that's impressive acceleration!!!

I was just wondering if the total weight might hold me back

I like the idea of a bike that can do 65 then tootling along at 50 is no strain

I learned a long time ago motors don't last half as long if you thrash them all the time

I just didnt want to get my sights set on 60mph plus if my weight was too much

and tri-ped dave, ive already got 4 motorcycles (nothing special mind) plus the puch

edit

lol tri-ped dave just read your profile and here's me bragging about numbers.... (edited)
