oh no not here too...

Power Now caused the most vicious flaming session I ever saw on the New England Dirt Bikes site. Some guys love them and run them and claim it makes their bikes livelier, and others ridicule them and say there is no way it could work and point out that dyno tests show no improvement.

Only way I can see, is get a few bikes together, lets somebody take them into a garage and put Power Nows in some of them but not tell anybody which ones (that person goes out the back door so he can't even give away the answer unintentionally with a non-poker face). The riders go ride them and declare which ones have it and which don't. (They can all ride their own bikes). Then a lunch break, back into the garage, some get it taken out or in, some are left alone - and back out again and let the riders say if they still have it or don't.

Then we'll see if it really does anything.
Advanced pancreatic cancer found 04/2010. Have outlived +/- 97% of patients with this diagnosis, but 08/2013 cancer now in liver, vascular system and lungs with 20+ lung tumors. Sick/weak sometimes, not riding much. No more treatments & now under Hospice care.
