And it's pretty snappy from a stop. I had the pleasure of having it
gain three car lengths on me in less than a block from the traffic
light at 28th and Pearl. (Each with a heavy shoe off the line. No
ungentlemanly clutch poppin', tire squealin' kid stuff.) A nice, torquy
motor, methinks. I wish my motor would act like it had all those
mods somewhat before 4000 rpm.
