Rod and Noela in Australia

July 20th, 2006

Successful installation! Took a little bit of fiddling to get a good firm fit, like most things. We’ve had a few rides and absolutely love the little Tanakas. We have steep hills which used to slow us down to 7 – 10 km/h but now we tackle them in highest gear and up to 35 km/h.

Noela can’t get the smile off her face as she can keep up easily and has always wanted a motorbike. I think bikes are safer with these motors as long as a mirror is also fitted. We did a 50 km ride, using the engines on hills and flat ground and idling as we coasted down hills. We still had a little bit of petrol left when we got home. The dog can come with us sometimes now – check out the backpack! My other bike’s a GoldWing and I can’t decide which is more fun.
