a friend found this and sent me the link. i guess tour wasn't sooo bad. that same bike carried my silly ass from El Paso to Phoenix in under 5 hours. when paul asked how fast i got it going i told him: "i chickened out and rolled off the throttle at about 155, but it still had tons of head room left. if i had more than a t-shirt on i would have felt braver, maybe next time." his reply was: "i hate you." as i recall, i never got to ride it again.
