    Great job. How much throttle were you giving it in that video?

    Wahoo!! Love it! I with you, I'll try anything at least once. One of my motto's is "If you're not living on the edge, then you're taking up too much space". I think naysayers are people that are too chicken to try anything fun. Good for you.

    I had it floored but it was about 1/8-1/4 of what it should be with a better throttle. Poor man's governor which was OK with me for its initial test run.

    Creeping up on the speed with something like that is a good idea. Lol.

    Yeah that is what I thought but I am already searching for an appropriate throttle replacement.

    Glad it's working for you! Looks like it's fun.

    I still maintain my concerns for safety though, don't let your guard down. :)

    Point proven.
    Stay safe now, do not want you hitting the international news in the worst way.
    Although it does remind me of a guy in West Australia and his cessna.

    "When people start saying your stuff is dangerous, you're on the right track" After living just up the road from Evel Kneivel you realize that your bike is far less dangerous than his jumps....I love this biko-plane!

    Here is a little more video for you. Before you watch it I must preface, I am not a videographer nor is my wife a cameraman. This is just some cellphone footage she took on our ride this morning.

    Good news, it passed the zombie test. It's not loud enough to wake the dead!

    We like to ride where there isn't much traffic, that place is usually pretty dead.
