I don't the the problem is with this board

I've put up 1024x768 with no trouble.
As a test here's a pic I saved from '06
Recognize the bike?
Cool bike, ehh?

Yesterday evening went out for a short ride and hey, she rocks the hell!
Cooling down summer evening country road, Jollys and 8°-rotaries and 14:40 ratio, you know what I mean? The road was on f...
Always fun to reach a convertable, then one or two gears down and "ACTION" , sometimes greeting with the front wheel
I saw, the cops had to much to do on their regular inofficial cross stand with the dealers trying to pass from Amsterdam I reckon, so just a short distance to stay at idle.

Cheers

Chassis mods include Race Tech Emulators and modded stock springs, AD block off's, LG fork brace, 20 mm front and rear axle conversions, 290 mm EBC rotors and 6 piston calipers, braced stock swingarm, Wilbers shock, LG adjustable ride height strut, Marvic wheels in 5" rear and 3.5" front with Pilot Powers in 120/65 and 170/60/17, 520 chain.

I think the coolest thing about this bike is that it has been ridden by over 400 Gamma owners or prospective owners over the years and has always made a strong impression. If any of you who are reading this post recall taking this particular Gamma for a spin, please confirm and share a little bit about your experience with my RG.

Total kms on this bike so far, 127,000km.


If that's the RG that used to be black / orange, I've ridden it.
Yes it's fast, handles well, feels tight and all.
To me, to most amazing thing about this bike is it's ability to be
rolling steady speed in 6th, at 45mph. Then roll on the gas, and away it goes!
No down gearing, no blubbering, no drama at all.

thats the nature of the big bore motor, torque and great midrange prior to the fury of when the bike comes on the pipe. Rick's bike had big compression and along with the close ratio tranny, modern suspension and brakes, the bike is really an incredible ride..I guess thats why I had him build me one...hehehe
