well then, ya better hang on 'cause this thing is a BEAST.

i read in other threads about DS riders trying to tune the very last zephyr of disturbed air out of their windscreen. no buffeting allowed.

in contrast, this bike has no windscreen, no fairing either. that little red thing on the front is to protect the gauges. at 85mph, the bike and rider are about as aerodynamic as the cardboard box your new double door refrigerator came packed in. ride this bike, the air is beating on you with a club. very old school, very visceral. gotta love it.
