Well, with the majority of my technical difficulties either solved or close to it, I can now think about the next operational issue I've discovered. I feel the need.... ...the need... ...to be less of a giant wind brake on my poor little XV250! Anyone got any ideas on how to get an extra 10kph out of it ? At the moment, even if I chose to ride on a major highway (eg: Western Highway), I would deem it to be dangerous since I can't hold a speed within 20kph of the limit. Yep - 90 is about the stable top for me. Whilst I never made claims about wanting to go too fast, keeping up with the traffic on the Princes Fwy would be nice, otherwise any sort of serious commuting MAY not be practical.
