Rode the maori's shovel yesterday with a foot clutch,but his lever is a little more forward middle of the tankish area,more scary was the 3" open belt primary if he doesn't want shredded jeans I better make him a cover lol

Na its not hard to get used to, you dont go for the next gear mid corner or anything silly like that, when its combined with hardtails, lots of rake and kiwi roads its pretty easy. ha ha.

anyone can ride a bike, it takes a real grease monkey to ride jockey

Jesus... I used to like the muppets - but not from that angle!!

By the way Mike... your bike's looking brilliant - low and mean. I took the USED bike on the pink ribbon charity ride on Sunday, it's first real outing. We ended up at the Sandbar in Mana. Would have kept coming out to your place, but ran out of time and had to get back into town. Didn't break any land speed records but it was hella fun. Lots of interest in it. Be great when we can get the Wellington crew riding as a crew. cheers
