Hung out with Fred yesterday, and got to ride that sweet "Tow Truck" PA-50 of his, that damn thing will indeed do 50+ Mph, but once it started gettin there I backed the hell off the throttle quick, it's SCARY.
He's found that prime "Sweet spot" in the gear range, where ya get a constant smooth accelleration all the way across the band, without any hitch, just a nice smooth curve all the way to wind out, and I ain't sure I even wanna know what that puppy winds out at, damned if even I am gonna try to find out.
The PA has like, a slower, gentler kinda handling I ain't used to, it feels almost top-heavy to me, but it handles pretty well for all that, till ya get past 45mph, anyhow...pretty smooth even then.
Got to zoom around behind Fred fer a while on the Suzuki Fa-50 too, and it's a real corner-carver, as I remember, but the Japanese bikes handle real different from the euro bikes, and it was kinda weird getting used to it again....especially when I am currently used to driving a Euro-ped based trike.
Anyhow, Fred's definately found that prime "Sweet Spot" gearing range on the PA-50 Variator, which so many of us have strived for on other mopeds.
That thing is Psycho, seriously...
