Would your 125 have benefited from a little lower gear ratio?
Mike's views were his, not sure what to make of them. My sis in law kind of blew it off when I told her, saying something to the effect that he's always talking crazy, but maybe that's what frustrates him, that the CR government has the same attitude.

The 125 pulled me up some rocky/dirty inclines that I wasn't sure really surprised me, just kept climbing away in first, so I'd say it's gearing was good. Sometimes wanted a bit more power on the pavement, going up hill. Did lots of shifting, but it responded much as I was hoping. Top speed was around 80-85 kilometers ph, so it did all right. On a long flat, I'm sure it would hit 100kph, but it's CR, so what's the hurry?
