vmax seems ok


vmax has been kicking my arse with a mystical magical electric fault

well - test ride last night after a few more hours messing with it and it seems ok i think

had a pair of headlight bulbs in the tail light which wasnt helping me with the massive power drop when i put on the brakes - took me a bloody age to decide to check the bulbs...

back to loving it not scowling at it now though - they are a fun bike to ride, yea ok, so theres bikes that are faster NOW, but imagine what it was like in the early 80s - a street bike that would pull a 10 second ish quarter mile off the showroom floor.

  1. I still love em.
    The new ones are also batshit quick in a straight line. Was doing around a ton on the Ten and one came alongside and dropped me like I was doing 30. Mind you the next set of bends changed the odds...
    Wheres the pink bodywork?
