    Same here. There is no way for me to read Egan and not want to set off on some adventurous two wheeled trek. I just need some more adventurous friends...lol.

    Clymer manuals used to have a section on beginner mods for the bikes covered in the manual. They stopped doing it because the newbies reading it usually ended up ruining their bikes and complaining about it.

    damn, all we had was playing cards and clothes pins for sounds of power!!...anything heavyer we used for good sounds destroyed spokes!!

    true on the clymer mods ..
    the the early yg1 manual has some cool mods just for that model, thou they did warn you off to attempt them ,unless you understood what you were doing.

    Bet alot of early stuff ended up being redone as they ran like crap because of those hop-ups!!
