24 foot or 7.3 meter diameter.
That would be 12 foot radius or 3.6 meters from the center.

good videos both of you

Now that we know you guys know what you are doing, let us see how low can you go?

I bet both of you should be able to go 18 feet/ 5.5 meters?

Just have to do 2 full circles

post them up fellas, at least show us how close you get

WELL incase anybody is wondering, my throttle problems was a radiator overflow hose, that goes from the left radiator, over the engine, to the right lower side where the overflow bottle is. the front throttle linkage which is a lever that is controlled from the throttle cable throttle linkage was grabbing it until it squeezed it out when i forced the grip back.

as for the weather, yesterday was a great fine sunny day, in the high 20s strong wind, and had dozen of bush fires that were out of control with one of the highest fire danger periods ever seen but...., today, its snowing bucket loads, here, and all over the state, as its spring its rare and it never really snows here anyway, some weird weather.

The bike not costing a fortune to fix is a win in my book.

That's some photos. You get biblical weather!

My first attempt......... Be nice. I may have already posted this, if so, soz.

that's a really good idea. the gate in the middle forces more control. might as well put gates at the apex of the turns too.... stricter control equals more fun.

With a bit more practice I'm going to set it up in a fixed area. Hard to say from the video but the whole thing is within 6 - 8 mtrs. The road is 8 mtrs wide....
