    I was laughing at that video until I realized, not only do we have to put up with the mufflerless harleys going by ( one out of 2 run straight pipes or gutted mufflers)- kids will get these and be another source of noise.
    What happened to cards in the spokes held on by clothespins?

    No offense to the lefties of the forum, but 2strokers come to mind when noise is mentioned. HUH what did he say?

    Not all two-strokes are obnoxiously noisy.

    I wouldn't be surprised if you get an extra 40+ mph with an over optimistic calibration of your bicycle speedo.

    It works to perfection for many people purporting to show video proof of their 50+ mile per hour claims; with their bicycle speedo nudging a mind boggling 60 mph.

    Speed, lets talk speed?????

    . It's interesting that its been finally discovered. I also have mounted 4 of this turbo units on the back of my bike. People have a very hard time believing this, but close to full throttle, I'm sitting right at 82.4 MPH!!!!!~ Can you even believe? Yes, max speed listed on interstate is 70 MPH, and you need to see the drivers when I go blowing by in the fast lane with nothing but my panniers flapping in the wind.

    Hard to even believe............................

    PS- Trying to design a front spoiler to help keep front tire down to pavement for better control. Yes, cruising at though's speed, I'm normally just traveling one just the rear wheel only. (See, you steer then with your body weight)

    i remember finding an early one of these that needed batteries...

    be good facing forwards on the front to scare the roos off the roads at night :)

    then you may find performance decreased :(
