So I went for a nice long ride with some friends this weekend. One of my old vtx guys could go because his water pump went out. So I offered to let him ride the 109 and I took the vtx. I was very cool to be able to ride next to the bike and see how nice it looks going down the road. One very cool thing to see was that when the bike is moving you can look right through the wheel and see the ground on the other side. It looks like the wheels are hollow. Just one more great thing about the bike.
