I'm in Ohio, where ethanol isn't so common, so perhaps that's why. At any rate, I've ridden the bike around town, up to Lake Placid, NY, and through countless twisty back roads throughout central and SE Ohio. Love the bike, and not a single mechanical issue so far. Of course, mine IS red, which is not only the fastest, but I believe the most reliable color.

Pictures kind sir!! Pictures!
