The total trip was 20 miles (for JD) .. I went about halfway .. then returned .. (it was actually over the length I wanted to stick with for 'break-in' of my new piston/bore .. but it was a nice ride .. I couldn't help it).
He/we picked about the slowest, least congested roads between me and him .. curvy roads around lakes... and then a pretty hilly area.
A pretty nice ride really .. through wealthy suburbs.
We switched bikes about 7 miles in .. but he was babying my bike .. (he didn't want to 'abuse' somebody elses bike .. so I waved him down and told him to hold it wide open for one good run) .. he said he hit 50 .. (there was a downhill on it).
His bike's speedo reads a bit optimistic .. while mine says 30 .. his says 36 or so.
(and mines 2mph optimistic at 30)
His top speed - by my speedo is 32mph.
That was the crappiest day in months .. cold, overcast, light rain.
The windows in my house have been wide open for months ... not any more.
Hey JD .. the Cimatti is just a straight up single speed ?
- Wait till you see the only pic I have of me on a moped .. (if I can find it) .. I think I was riding a Cimatti city bike at the time.
