Awesome vid. Keepin a pretty damn good pace for two up (probably faster than me solo ). That bike sounds intoxicating.

I would have a sore chest by the end of the day. My wife has found a pressure point just below my sternum... the more I lean, the more she pushes it!

I just re-watched that video. Sweet.

<thread hijack>

I completely fail to understand how people shift and brake with all their fingers like that. I learned the 2-finger method years ago riding mountain bikes on steep, rough downhills where you had to use the brakes but if you took all fingers off the grip you would surely die. So I learned to hold on with the outer two and use the lever with the inner two. Also I have the clutch adjusted so I only pull it in about 3/4" or so. Maybe less to just loosen it up a bit, then match throttle to speed and shift away. Seems to take much less effort and time than getting all four fingers out there and pulling it all the way in. I just can't do that.

Patient zero.

Partly stabilized, partly curious.

Be your own man; don't be an owned man.

Some people would rather be dead than wrong.
