What about the bearing that holds the ponts-cam in? How's that working?



Ot that big hinge in the middle of the frame?



Mine ran too, for about ten minutes.

It's 576cc, according to the website. Look for a future review here on MO!

Is that a-hole with the big grey mustache still patrolling the lake? "PICK UP YOUR SKIER!"



Phah. No wake means no wake.

I agree with you about being annoyed with riders who feel the need to brag about their riding skills. Hopefully, most of those immature riders will eventually grow up to be responsible motorcycle riders. I also agree with you about how a skilled rider on a cruiser or otherwise "non - high performance" bike can embarrass unskilled riders on sport bikes. I have seen that, and it's rather pleasing to witness! But, my point was that, all other things being equal, a person should be able to ride faster in the twisties if they're riding a bike designed to be ridden in the twisties!!! You also brought up something else to my attention that I'm now wondering about. When I rode my stratoliner, it had the thinnest chicken strips on any bike I've ever owned (barely any chicken strips)! But, I could not get anywhere near the same speed or lean angle into the same turns on that bike as I could on some of the other bikes I've owned. So, I'm guessing that the tires out there must be designed different enough that chicken strips don't necessarily show how much lean a person is getting on his/her bike. I never would have thought about that until I had the stratoliner.

I can think of many things to ask advice about. Why not do it?

It's also about your comfort level at a certain rate of speed, and your confidence. I'm a lot more comfortable going fast with some good rubber beneath me, telling me what's going on, than I am if the tires feel a little greasy. I'm a whole different rider when I don't feel like I've got grip enough for any likely occassion. I don't know how going really fast on a Gold Wing could anything but a lot of work--except for the satisfaction of wiping a few smug grins off a squids face. Come to think of it, if my juevos would allow it, that MIGHT be fun......

All right, everyone adjust your medication and leave the poor squid alone.
