    The temp finally was decent and the roads were 90% dry so off i went last nite and tonite for a proper test/shake down ride...put on more than 20 miles and cruises effortlessly at 25mph and topped out at 32mph(Gps) with the 1" roller and a 300lb rider. The bike is perfect and feels great at any speed. I just pedal a few rounds on take off to help preserve the roller and tire but it will go from a standing start even with me on it...would probably do 40+ with a normal sized rider and could then also up the roller size for some real speed...but its good for me and i might try 1 size smaller roller for testing purposes as it got faster with me riding it when i changed down from the 1.25 roller.

    It is basically the Simple Simon kit with their Stingray chopper mount which i just needed to trim 1 corner a bit.

    Oh...and it is the Mitsi 43cc...never for a second thought it would do that kind of speed and remember it only has 25-30 miles and still running the oil a little rich.

    that would feel like flying to me !!!

    yes -- that's some good high end speed going on with that MB thing there !!!

    that's why I asked about the cc

    wow -- that would feel like flying to me -- I am used to my 22.5 mph Robin friction

    if your engine is new -- take it easy for a while -- nice break in is (((good THING)))

    as you ride that MB thing

    25mph...engine speed is 9500rpm.

    32mph...engine speed is over 12,000rpm.

    40mph...engine speed is over 15000rpm.

    BTW, engine redline of a broken-in Mitsubishi engine is 8900rpm.
