Well, a local inmate is going to show me how to do pics some time soon.

I just cracked the throttle open in first at about 3000rpm. At around 5k the front end came up and stayed up until I let off for second. No bumps or anything. Just a pure 100% power wheelie. Remember that with my CR tranny my first is almost as tall as a normal tranny's second gear. Out on the hiway at 90mph with fast traffic and you want to get around some cars? Crack open the throttle and you are going 120 lickity split. I LOVE it!

It idles different with the higher compression ratio. There's a lot more boom in every pop.

Some admirers of my bike in SF called it a 'cafe racer'. Cafe racer? Cabriolet poser? No. I had to tell them that my bike is a TT racer. That can stand for Tourist Trophy racer or Tavern to Tavern racer. Take your pick!
