Then we got tricky and followed along behind changing the distance between the balls so that each circuit was different, bringing in observation & speed control.
Ooh...that sounds like fun. I'll have to give it a try.

Off-topic: I did it -- I picked up the '77 XS750 last night It's not any lighter than the Wee, nor is it any less powerful, but as it's far from pristine I won't be heartbroken if I drop it in a parking lot. It's also not moving again until I replace the tires and get the front brakes working
