Like a Champ 75 mph no problem. Well I guess you might consider 9.4 MPH to the gallon, a problem.

Down Valley tire in Gypsum C.O. Great guys who did what every one else said could not be done. Had it back together on Wednesday, however, we stayed in Moab and rode, picked it up on Friday on the way home. Stunk staying in town, but hard to complain when your in Moab. That place has got it all, from simple to impossible.

Not only the tank, but a whole a bike, got a great deal on a 450, came with the tank. We did a 130 mile track with no fuel stops so it came in handy. That thing sucked fuel, compared to the 530, I think its fair to say I have a couple lbs on him, so it would be like the 530 pulling a trailer.

Overcast and mid 60's.

Does anyone have access to a sheet metal shear? I have a .125" thick, 12" x 24" 3003 aluminum sheet that I would like to cut into two 12' x 9" pieces. Thanks.
