    A short ride back from the Springfield nuclear plant yesterday ending up at the front gate to Wildebeest towers.
    It feels much faster when your on the thing trust me, still learning to ride it really.

    Excellent video man, sounds sweet and it looked like a great day. Two-strokes are such a hoot to ride. Tough to stop riding when a bike is that much fun.
    You did right building that one, what a beautiful bike. I'll bet it really is much faster than perceived in the video.
    I know what the RD 400 feels like and you've got twice the horsepower so yeah, it's got to be way fast. What a rush.
    Probably a good thing it's not a TZ750.:photog
    How are the brakes? Are the fronts too much?
    Congrats on getting it done.
    BTW are you done dicking around with the side stand yet?

    Cheers, it is an absolute hoot, I have to get right over the front wheel when the power kicks in at 6K, it spins up so quick, great for overtaking.
    Front brakes are really very good, better than expected. A bit grabby at slow speeds at the moment but not a problem.
    I fitted the stand this morning, bit of a hangover so I was extra careful not to cock up the install.

    Just watched the video, typical hot rod two stroke; every ride is a lap of the isle of man :-)
    When you get home you get it in the garage as quickly as possible and get the door closed.

    All that riding on the ‘wrong’ side of the road freaks me out. And what’s with the road? It keeps telling your bike it’s slow, when it’s clearly not. Sounds magnificent.

    That video brought back so many memories of my RD with expansion chambers back in the 1970's plus the roads are very reminicent of Mid Wales, two lane with high hedges. :photog
