Mr joeburt. It appears from your recent purchase history that you are afraid of real motorcycles. Therefore I feel like it is my duty to relieve your from the burden of that sv1000. I will pick up when you're schedule allows

16hp geared right will do well beyond 50mph... my kx65 makes around 16hp and ive done 81mph on TWS (Texas World Speedway) front straight geared of course for the big track. Tmgp and katy 50mph is plenty though for the straight.

I cant wait to check it out in person those blatas are like $4000+ new I wanred 1 but never could afford 1 as a kid.

I got lucky on craigslist...guy was leaving for aviation school in the navy and wanted to get rid of it..it was more of a novelty item for him..he said he wasnt sure if it still ran due to sitting up for over a year...i put some gas in it and 3 pulls later it fired right up!!
