    The highly driven sales force pushed it on me, Bill can be quite convincing when he discounts the carb far enough.

    Sadly, it’s better than Pizza Hut.

    I'm too cheap for vortex. Plus does it even have traction control? :D

    Yoo won’t win… He thinks swapping tires to something with a bigger knob is adding “traction control” to a bike….

    1st is all I need too since I don't know how to use a clutch. Let's not forget my poor boot choices.

    I will give you that the fueling was absolutely perfect on my 350 right out of the box. Never flamed out. Never stalled, always ran mint… Just couldn’t make me smile. Felt like someone should be paying me to ride something that felt so much like a job…
    But I’ve also never had an issue with anything I’ve owned that has a Keihin carb… Every one of ‘em, set it and forget it… And they all get me smiling like a kid in a candystore…

    On flowing stuff the 125 is about the most fun bike I've ridden. It Just screams and you feel like you are going much faster then you really are perfect for a play bike. In the techy stuff you need tu run a tight show as it's not that forgiving but at least it's silly light and easy tew pick up. After a few days on the 125 then hopping on a trials bike I'm all shocked like what is this TORQUE............
