This Sachs has the 505/1D motor. The Sachs 505 A-C motors only have 1.5-1.8 HP, but the big "D" comes with 2.7 HP. The Dellorto 15mm helps a little, but I am thinking that it might be happier with something around 16mm to 19mm.

It seems just about everyone can't figure out how to keep the Giannelli pipe on, but I haven't had any problems and all it took was 10 seconds with the Dremel. Just make the 2mm slit on the clamp on part into a 15mm slit, tap it all the way on, and then crank it tight with an allen bolt. Also, I think the black metal flake and plum purple paint job helps.

This bike is really comfortable to ride and feels very stable even with a passenger. I can still hit 30 with a passenger, but if you + your gf > 300 pounds, I would upgrade the rear shocks.
