The test run was fun.
Hadda make a Wally's run so it was country roads 9 miles and two miles
on a divided 4 laner with one mile straightaway.
705 140/80/17, 16/42, standard intake and exhaust mods.
(stock modified) No elephant ears, has Dakar tall vertical windshield.
She pulled stoopid fun in the first two gears, and returned to wheelies quite
easily close to home. Out on he open road it still pulled great in 3rd and 4th
wasn't nearly as strong as the stock days, but still had good steady acceleration.
Backed down a a bit and 4th is the perfect cruising gear. The deer infestation has
gotten very bad with two mild winters and keeping it around 45-50 is perfect
for both a keeping a decent clip but hands on the levers for a panic stop/swerve
Turning out onto the highway I just let it rip. Took it nearly to 70 in 4th, and
5th pulled nicely and I let off in the low 80's getting closer to town. Didn't do a
top end test yet but don't need to. The 17t was just too much for top end use.
When I let off fifth was still accelerating and felt like it wasn't ready to fall asleep
soon so I'm figuring it's good for 90+ and hopefully closer to the century in a full
wind tuck downhill with a tailwind. lol
