    Everglades ride!!

    For those that viewed my dilemma here https://tw200forum.com/forum/general-...can-spout.html

    Finally got around to posting a brief, not really exciting vid. I edited out a lot of the boring parts and wasn't' recording during the more entertaining things. Couple of gators, a bird that sucks at flying and a douche cager. Nearly 4 hours of pain and suffering for a 5 minute video, go figure.

    Those roads are sure straight and flat! But the weather looks great and the Everglades look like an interesting place to explore as long as you don't get eaten by a gator.

    It's nice to see a video that doesn't have the constant putt putt of the puny TW engine! But I must be old because I prefer the original tune!

    I don't think this engine really likes anything above 55mph....

    I swapped my rear sprocket down to a 47 tooth when I upgraded to a 428 D.I.D. X-ring chain. Nobody could ever confuse the TW with a comfortable freeway cruiser, but I've found that sprocket change resulted in more civilized RPM's @ 50+ mph.

    It won't be greed which destroys America. It will be envy.

    Man who runs in front of motorcycle gets tired. Man who runs behind motorcycle gets exhausted.
