On the Road Again

First off, took a little while to learn how to "Embed" another's video in this blog

So here goes
Got the Saber out yesterday

All works just fine

Toes on pegs, about at the balls of my feet
Light touch on the bars, index and middle finger of each hand covering the clutch and front brake.
Pretty much steer by subtile shifting of weight.

The power is still soooo nice: a flat torque curve from 2,000 RPM to 10,000.
Nothing sudden, except that you end up going pretty fast pretty quickly.

Note that when young, with a more aggressive rider, this would be a low 11 second quarter mile machine.
It gets from zero to 50 in under 3 seconds if you want to.

Oh yeah and it gets about 40MPG
More fun than a Prius
