And congrats Brydman, hope you are comfortable witht he "flighty" feeling of the Drizzers at speed. Just be xtra careful if you do that between two staggered semi trucks! I'm really hoping to be able to make it out on the next SM ride!
We should try and get one going for Sunday morning. 91 mph on a tard is scarier than 150 on a SS. Front wheel dancing around and the bike starts moving around underneath you. Byrdman would you be available Sunday? You know your way around pretty well.

i can't tell when half u guys are being sarcastic or not. So i spent 5 mins a looked up some stuff on the web...

lordy day, motorcycles are geared totally different from cars. i done learned sompthing !

i guess it's somewhat typical for Liter bikes to go something along the lines of...

1st - 90 mph
2nd - 115
3rd - 135
4th - 150
5th - 165
6th - 180

whew!!
