After 2 years of hard work ,finaly the first test ride .There is just nothing better than the support of ones family, when it does`nt quit go right the first time out! Take a look at the vidio ,will post some pic`s when I figure out how man can make them smaller so I can post them. I have a FZR600 in it now but over the winter I plan on putting a FZS 1000 in. Will be putting up some pic`s of the build.

I work for a German company, I work with some Germans.

The dudes laugh at nothing! The chicks laugh at everything!

Looks cool, good luck.

If it makes you feel better, I have almost the exact same video of my first drive in my 'cuda. It includes the stall and women laughing in the background.

When I figured out the hand clutch and gearbox, no more laughter. Also, not sure what your gearing is, but i changed my front sprocket over to the smallest one i could find, and it drastically improved performance, less stalling, easier starts and better acceleration. I never get close to top speed so it has not effected my speed at all

Speed is relative to how smooth or how rough the trail is anyway, isn't it.Some trails top speed would be 30, maybe and a smooth road might be 80, so its all OK.

I was shur the tank was voll but the buggy was running on fumes. Runs a lot better with the tank full. I donn`t have the hand clutch on the shifter,it has a foot clutch. I`ve got a 13 tooth on the front and 60 in the rear. She goes pretty good but the motor just doesn`t do it you have to run it pretty hard,can`t wait to get the other motor in. Here is a better vidio .
