First test for the V

After work yesterday I went for a ride with my wife. She was lagging behind a bit so I slowed down to let her catch up. There were a few houses on my left on this quiet country road. In one of the driveways there was a guy messing around on a Yamaha racing quad. He spied me and I spied him. He tore out the drive and got on my wheel. I was making a left hand turn onto a nice straight section. I slowly went through the interesection and he followed. I motioned for him to come up along side and he did. We looked each other in the eye and nodded...

My V was sorta still in break-in so I've been taking it easy, but the moment called and time for easy was over. My first throw down and I gave her what she had. Holy crap did that feel goooood. The front wheel lofted through second and in short order I was at 70mph and I looked in the mirror and he was still back there but losing ground quickly. The next I looked the tach said 9K and the speedo said 111mph and he was dust in the wind. I had an ear to ear grin, my first shake down and I was impressed with how the little V handled it.

I can honestly say this bike has lots of potential to get me in trouble with the law.

Enjoy, Mike

Those little quads are pretty quick, until they run out of gears. I can't even imagine 70 mph on a quad though, better keep a death grip on the bars!

Congrats on your V, WindWalker. Let her rip...

He might get a V to stay up with you.
Who know, it might be a start of a beautiful friendship.
