I am not being trained, not racing for win, but rather "enjoy" different bikes and "taste" (or sampling) different rides. Fast bike, heavy, bike unstable/stable ones

etc... Design, workmanship, how it rides/feels are more of my concern than checking

computer read outs, as how many miles done what the heart beat rate etc..

Over 50+, this engine is worn, loose, and shrinking for sure.
