Post by PTRACER » 1 year ago

This is just magnificent to watch. Motorcycle from 1929, no suspension, yet he manages to destroy riders on machines that were 20 years newer.

Loved this comment: "Theres a nut on top of the seat that you can adjust to get more speed out of pretty much any bike. If the current nut isnt doing the job then replace with one that has a Corser thread." :haha:

I guess the 4 wheel equivalent of that would be Martin Brundle who once said ”The most important component in any racing car is the nut that holds the steering wheel."

Great clip @PTRACER and thanks for posting. :thumbsup:
