it vibrates more or less like a twin with a plug wire missing, except it has unbelievable torque. it has 160 psi compression on a piston as big as one from an 883 sportster. the spark was overadvanced when i started messing with it and it would slam back against my foot like a pick handle. it starts easily if i get the piston position correct, but i'm still figuring out where that is.

the smoothest bike i ever rode was a cagiva 900, back when they couldn't say "ducati." i traded my morgo with a friend for a short trip across the texas panhandle, and didn't think a whole lot about vibration. then i got back on the T120 and was horrified at how thick the grips had grown.


Into the distance a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning back
A flight of fancy on a windswept field
Standing alone my senses reeled
A fatal attraction is holding me fast how
How can I escape this irresistible grasp?

I still whack open the throttle to give chase, but nothing happens ! [quote=RF Whatley][quote]

This is what happens to me when I see an attractive 20 something lass.
Well actually, nowadays it a 50 something "cougar".

I'd rather die riding than *most* other ways I can think of...

I had a friend who said, "I want to go WFO buck naked".
