Default Off topic Preaching.

Well I hate to break it to you but it doesnÂ’t get much better than you got right now. With your future ahead and the wind in your face, ah what a fine time to be alive.



If you donÂ’t happen to be a father already I would highly recommend putting that off for at least another 5 years, ten would be better. With divorce rates at what they are (or even more easily a pregnant ex GF) you could easily end up with $1000 a month child support (or more). Try living when your paying someone elseÂ’s Mortgage. Add in a Mortgage of your own and the threat of being laid off everyday and presto youÂ’re now in the shoes of most of us out here.



While I'm not trying to paint the world black, I am trying to show most stresses are of your own doing and can be avoided. Make your decisions wisely. If your GF is adding more stress than she is taking away you may be better off just focusing on your studies and not on a relationship. Same with Friends. The more you party in College, the less you learn.



Yes this all relates to motorcycles, we have a stressed out 20 yr old on a Busa. The fastest thing you can buy... Hell the thought of it sends chills down my spine.



All I can say is never ride loaded or without your gear. Thinking about it, a couple weekends of partying could have easily bought a very nice set of pants and jacket, if you havenÂ’t already. By your own hand you have the gun to your head and the hammer back, donÂ’t pull the trigger (aka pin the throttle)... With a little luck and the right choices you'll see 40 in no time, along with thousands of happy miles behind you.



Good luck with your studies.

Of the two prototypes shown last year (year before, maybe?), the one I was drooling about was the Mana ETV... with perhaps a different headlight/bugscreen setup. A real original, nto completely clean sheet, but close to it, bike. And the derivative Tuono. I imagine the Tuono was the no-brainer parts-bin special, but I was sure hoping they'd make the Mana first. Will I consider buying a Multistrada? Not likely. How 'bout the regular ed. Tuono? I'd buy the multistrada first. But the Mana--that I would have been sleeping out in front of the Aprilia dealer, money in hand, to be the first to place a deposit for one-a them...

Default Look again

The chart's confusing because the dip in torque (not horsepower) happens right at the 5250 rpm crossing point. Below 5250, the left line is hp. It goes up continuously, but more slowly around 5000 rpm.

Default Re: CA Street Legal Dirt Bike Conversions

Don't forget your Husky TE610E and SM610S, they're both street legal in all 50 states.
