I rode my R today.I'm very impressed with the power and handling.I know there are better handling bikes out there,but it seems to handle very good compaired to my L.It was much easier to touch the ground.I was jumping it about 6 or 8 feet off the ground,and it seems that the rear shock almost bottoms out,and I only weigh about 165or 170 with gear on.I hope to get a frame with a MSO this month,then I'm going to try to get it street legal.Then I will have a great dual sport.BTW,3rd gear wheelies are easy,and 4th gear with some clutch,thought I can see that the clutch would start slipping with too many 4th gear wheelies.I do miss the magic button.lol

Thanks Zipper,I would put some graphics on,but I need new plastic first.The back fender is broke right behind the seat,the front fender is off ?,and the gas tank might have a crack judging by the gray spot on the left side.It's not leaking,but I'm afraid to mess with it, cause It might cause it to start leaking.
I hope to get a new frame with a title soon,then new plastic and some nice graphics.I was hoping to find something exotic looking.The bike rides and runs much better than it looks though.Being a mechanic by trade,I usually drive and ride ugly vehicles,but they run good.You should see my truck.lol:ride:
