Default RE: street

I have had my Nuova Faor Nitro Bike for almost a month now, after getting it set up I took it to a deserted parking lot. With the metal training wire's that go on either side of the bike to help keep it on its wheels in turns become a pain to keep in place. I have ran the bike a total of 8 tanks since getting it, IMO the bike is a lot of fun. It just takes a little time getting used to the steering. The Fantom 12 I have in my bike is super fast. I can pop wheelies but havent gotten them down yet!! I end up on my back a lot lol...... I am going to try to find a place to host some videos I took last weekend soon. For the money I think the bike is worth it. And for parking lot driving its not bad, but to find a nice race type out door track would really let you open it up. The softer the better I think. There are several different style tires out now for the bikes too which I am sure would improve driving. Also I think setting up the suspension correctly also helps. I changed my shock oil weight a little but am going to try other weights once it warms up again.

Hope that answers your questions. Here's a few of my bike......
