Scared now!!!!!!!!!!!

Well haven't been able to start the bike and after a suggestion on here(thanks man ) pulled out the plugs (yeah, that plastric tray thing is a **** to get out) found the gap was well big, anyway new ones in and starts first off on the button, cool. That was yesterday, decided to just give it a run after work tonight, totally different bike, really feels like an angry bitch now! lol. Since last year I've run it thinking its quite docile....bit scared now...with slightly soiled pants

Re: Scared now!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice one!

That plastic part is a total pain in the ass. There is a notch on one side of the front part that I cut off of mine, it makes it easier to remove / install without it with no ill effects.

I take a (humble) bow and wish you all the best and take care. These might be venerable old ladies, but they can still kick bottom.

Re: Scared now!!!!!!!!!!!

I thought mine was badass, and then I changed plugs and literally scared myself! I left a stop sign, ridin the same way I had been, and all of a sudden my headlight was gone off the street! This was the first bike I had and had never pulled a wheelie. I was on my way to a friends house, and scared her cause I got off the bike shaking, and white as a ghost!

Re: Scared now!!!!!!!!!!!



All these rides have way more power than any of us need.

My first ride in the spring usually makes me go "Wooooooaaaaahhhhhh"

Sometimes I wish I was a faster rider, but there's no heroes in the graveyard..............
