I know I should leave well enough alone but after getting back from Tuk on my 650, I can't help but think could I set up the 1V like my 650? The bike did amazing, no drops and no mechanical failures and I really don't have any complaints. I re-geared with a 16t front and I was able to keep up with the other liter bikes in the group, albeit with a lot of shifting. The 650 loaded with gear and rider just doesn't like to be under 5k. Most of the 5k miles was freeway and it would be nice to have a bigger machine and better comfort for longer distances. I wonder if the 1V could handle the Dempter if set up properly....hmmmm. Really wish it was shaft drive though...
