Sorry for all the posts tonight, but I am home sick and kinda bored.

Anyhow, I have been stumped by how slow my scoot is for a while. I was always pretty confident that the scoot was mechanically sound and pretty well in tune so the inability to hit 40 mph was a mystery. While I was shopping for the stock pipe for my Stella I broke down and bought a new stock pipe for the VBB too. After slapping the pipe on I took the bike out for a spin and what do you know, now I can hit 44 mph, which is what I would consider to be normal for a guy my size on a VBB. I guess it was just a pipe full of junk all along.

I have to give props to Jeremy L. for the awesome job he did rebuilding the motor on this scoot. It always starts first kick. I never, ever have to worry about this bike ever, it just runs. Thanks Jeremy!
