A man who can discover & fix his own mistakes is nearly as good as one who doesn't make them...

So, got the bike out for a little ride today and it actually seems more fun with the taller front sprocket. Perhaps it's the engine combo but it really loves the extra load and seems to pull at least as hard as before. Only downside is a little more slow speed at idle in first. looking forward to getting it out on the interstate in about 15 more degrees.

I think this deserves a thread all of it's own. I'd subscribe!
