Will I need to adjust my air pressure on my tires? I plan to spray paint my wheels red. It not only looks cool but will significantly increase my fuel mileage due to a decrease in friction. Don't worry I am planning to have ABS retro-fitted. I am very worried though because my headlight seems to have a leak. I looked this morning and all the fluid had drained out. Has anyone else experienced this? I filled it up with synthetic oil thinking that less friction would help the photons shine brighter. I think I made a big mistake though as I can barely see the light now. Is there a break-in period for the headlight? Should I switch to traditional oil or avoid using my brights for the first month of driving? I don't think I would be having all these issues if I would have bought a faster bike.

You can get a faster bike without buying a new one. Some ideas:

  • Ride off a cliff
  • Nitromethane
  • NOS (which is funny as well)
  • JATO booster
  • Take off the mirrors (what's behind me is of no concern)

Hey Luke, I'm pretty sure you are in agreement with me that if I retro-fit my bike with ABS I will be able to stop safely after riding over the cliff, right? Thank goodness for modern technology. Wow, what an idea you developed. You saved me so much $$ on engine mods. Now I just need to find a nice high cliff and see what this baby can do. Look for my post in the Top Speed Dead, I mean Thread.

I moded my tires to be rimless. Just used some gorilla glue to stick some straws from the axle to the rubber. Praise Gorilla Glue! This sure beats shaving the weight off with carbon fiber. I will post top speed results soon.
