Default Been scaring myself :D

So I've been gone a lot lately, been riding a bunch with the bike back in shape and I gotta say, I may not have accounted for the quickness at which the bike accelerates with a quick turn throttle and -1/+2.... Might be putting a slower throttle on for a bit as it's not very fun to ride on the streets. But the on ramps and freeways; now that's fun. Just biding my time to take it to the track.....

I LOVE my quick turn throttle...

although it only takes me 5 minutes to get out of town onto the vacant country roads.

It is quick... that's for sure. I haven't had to deal with it yet in traffic...with an LEO behind me at a traffic light....or on my 954...

I think if I lived in a bigger area - it might have some negatives.


DAMN I LOVE LIVIN' IN THE 'STICKS!

Those freeway on ramps are the most fun...

I got pulled over just yesterday about 3 blocks from home. Copper luckily let me go.

Yep might be calling yoyodyne to see if they have a tamer ratio for the streets. Perfect riding weather here! in the 70s/80s and sunny everyday for you folk that live in a place with, "seasons."
