Cool as

Will you be running a nose cone or fairing? or going naked?

For less resistance you would want to be laying either flat on your back, or stomach, not bent in half as your "Model" is :wink:

Looking at the current setup, laying on your stomach with your legs stretched out besides the engine would be the simplest way to go.

i will attempt to guess the answers for ya.
1 bikini fairing as it goes with the lovely model.
2 stretched stomach position . lower the trees cafe clip ons just above axle . chin rest on top tree.
3 laying on stomach could be hazardous if someone leaves their bike stand at home. lol.
4 may have to downsize the power plant for the worlds fasest moped as 125cc is oversized for a moped. but psyco salt flat scooter dudes could make a great first movie in a series.

cheers. go on you know you want to comment on my answers.
:P

the alcahol is to fuel the pit crew. the scoot runs on methane so the rider needs to eat 2 whole cabbages per run to produce the methane required the collector shall be integrated in the seat back. :lol:
