New bicycle training rig
See if this baby can do some motor pacing. Guy selling it is moving to Quebec. He is from Marseilles via Boston.

RE: New bicycle training rig
TMax's are fast...surprisingly so. The shop lent me one for a day while working on my bike one time. Everytime I looked down at the speedometer I was speeding. Sounded good too.

RE: New bicycle training rig
Don’t judge a book by its cover.
Very long time riding buddy switched to scooters a while back due to health reasons and changed my opinion of them very “quickly”.
During the ( not so) Bland VA rally I had the pleasure of riding with Ole who was on a scooter, I think, at least it looked like one when I caught a glimpse of him. Full disclosure - it was my neighborhood!
Personally I’m lusting for a Bergstrom with a sidecar!

well 500ccm are 500ccm ! ! ......and the automatic make the rest : no force interruption while accelerating or you must first learn the feeling for speed...with hondas DCT its the same....BUT.... DCT is not only use throttle and break like with on scooter...

RE: New bicycle training rig
My only gripes against scooters and DCT bikes is you can't bump start them. Leave key on or battery just dies on it's own and you are flat out stuck where ever you are. I like riding scooters and think I would like riding a DCT, but when the battery died on the Trex the dealer lent me (my fault) I had to put it on a trailer and take it back to the dealer, instead of just bump starting it and riding it back.

I'll have to keep that in mind. Haven't left my key on in my bikes of late. But it's happened to most of us at one time or another. I'll make sure it has a fresh battery in it. Cheap insurance.

RE: New bicycle training rig
There is a trick method of starting a bike with a dead battery using a simple 9 volt battery. Learned it at a motorcycle rally last summer.

4 Paws, I never heard of this tip. Would you mind expanding on it?
