I took my bike on a short ten minute break-in/ nut and bolt loosening ride, then after taking off the defective kill switch, I went around the block (21 miles) for the boneshaker, er, I mean shakedown cruise..... I've ridden A LOT of two wheeled vehicles, both powered and unpowered. This thing make a LOT of noise!!! I don't mean it's LOUD, I mean that in a good way. My big V-Twin (notaharley) rumbles the chest. My Vino scooter (50cc's) buzzes along smooth as silk at 10,000rpm's. My cruiser bicycle barely makes a sound, except for the weird little squeak that comes from the handlebars when I'm really leaning on it, and the swish swish swish of the tires as I peddle. But on this motoredbike I can hear the intake drone, the exhaust buzz, the chain/fenders/chainguard/seat springs/everything else singing and rattling, not to mention my knobby tires humming away. This bike is the definition of the word "euphony". I thought the whole neighborhood (a misnomer if there ever was one, it's really just three vacant houses and a pig farm waaay down the road) could hear me, but Mrs. Joe said she never heard me coming down the road, only saw me smiling from a 1/4 mile away.... Motoredbikes, where have you been all my life?
