Default Hey guys

here's a little something, compare both rides (the Elim's mine, well, WAS mine, I wrecked it, the Beemer is my dad's hopefully mine afterwards )


I seem kinda big for my bike, but check out on the beemer (was at the same weight on both pics).... It's not only big, but has tremendous power for being so heavy (360kg). At first I had trouble keeping balance on it (while being stopped), but when you get the hang it flies like a sport machine. Ultra comfortable, ultra smooth, and mega fun to ride... But, if you lose balance when stopping, is very hard (if not impossible) to lift it up, you'll need at least someone else helping you. In fact, my dad first bought the 2003 model (in brown), which had a mechanical middle-stand, but it was so heavy to set it up that you needed someone. Then he exchanged for his current '05 (the blue one) which came with an electric stand, so cool and practical, especially when you're pressing the button to be lifted up. Reverse is another key feature, all due to weight, you can't move it a cm. backwards on neutral, or you may, if have very strong legs.

Cya, and shoot comments
