Good to hear. Yup, Vic did it for me. Im loving everything about it, sound, spool, top end!

Gonna get dynoed at p3? It just sucks how you'll have to take off your front bumper. Ill hit you up. Church ends at 12 so I might not be able to meet up. If not some other time.

I've seen a few pop up, just not the right deal for what I wanted. The built black one was sold before I got a chance to look at it, and the blue 04 is trying to recoupe money in aftermarket parts so he's not willing to bargain at all.

Those aren't folding pegs. Very bad idea.

Ask me how many broken legs I've seen from similar fabrications.

You may think it no big deal but ...**** happens on two wheels. That is why all manufacturers use folding levers and pegs.

Hmm.. Most rucks with pegs don't have folding pegs. Besides the front pegs. But thanks for the heads up I shall look into it more.

Just imagine your foot sliding forward off that "peg" over a bump, planting in the ground as the bike comes forward and the "peg" smacks your planted leg and creates a whole new pivot point in your shin.

I saw it happen more than once in Florida and in the bush up here. People putting welded non folding pegs on, or worse BOLTS through the pivot point that wouldn't allow the peg to fold any longer.

A good friend of mine spent nearly a year on crutches this way.

Just trying to give you a heads up. I give you an A+ for effort and ingenuity.

Try to focus on the positives instead of feeling like you have someone busting your balls. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and all that jazz.

I like to try to be an ambassador for motorcycling. Experience is the result of much stupidity and a lot of luck. I've had both in spades.

Haha well I'd rather not have broken legs. Thanks for the heads up. I'm creative, I'm sure I have more tricks up my sleeve!

I recognized the LA Fitness that's sad...

Those Abarths look like such a blast. I bet it does well in AX.

Only gripe: Sport mode should be automatic and Econo mode optional.
