Well I am glad to hear on how awesome this is. I am looking forward to bringing mine up to date. I don't mind kick-starting it, just want to make it easier and efficient as possible. I want to love my bike, but it isn't fun starting it by wearing yourself out. But looking forward to these mods. My buddy brought up his opinion of "buy a new bike", I responded it is cheaper and easier to get this perfectly good bike up to date with "freshies" then having a payment. I think most will agree with me.
