Is it still running on four cylinders, or down to two?

If two, does one run overly hot, burning your *ss?

If so, can you mount pegs somewhere up around the front axle for relief?

I'm pretty sure you can overcome the turn-in tendencies, unless there are
some hot babes involved.

Other than that, the only recourse is to buy a black vest, stupid-quote
t-shirt and a beanie helmet.
