    Well I was able to get my first experience inside the dyno room as my bike is being tuned. I (thought) I understood what it is that tuners do but to actually watch and observe what they do is really impressive. There are so so many variables that they have to know and understand it is remarkable.

    Hot Riders bike is a just a calm Stage II but with her bike, the tune made the build. Watching Just Torque It having to go through the entire rpm range from off idle to red line and change almost every box percentage in 125 rpm increments was tedious and took a long time. Then, getting back on the bike, do another few pulls to see if those changes produced the best results. If not, go back and make more changes and do it all over again and again.

    The moral of the story....... If you are getting your bike tuned, don't complain about the cost as the tuner is going through a lot of work to make yur bike run right!

    Yep it's a lot of work, and the second moral is to have a ride take you to a good lunch place while they tune, easier on your ears!

    I found that the dyno work worried me about the "abuse" the engine gets. "Abuse" is a negative word for the rpms that are incurred during the tuning process but I'm extremely protective of my older bike. However, the results were great!

    I'm sure the abuse the engine gets after the owner gets in the saddle on the new upgraded and tuned bike is worse!

    Yeah, State Prosecutor is looking into it for any issues.

    Hopefully they'll hang him for election tampering....

    I think they should pass a law that says that for the felony bill
    to be paid it must be paid by the individual that committed the crime
    in person.

    Then Bloombuy would have to give the money directly to the criminals
    who would then have the opportunity to decide, pay the fine or buy an 8 ball...

    Figure half will take the money and run..
