Having fun on my CR85

your short shifting and missing the meat of your power. Try holding the throttle wide open longer in each gear and then shift up. Also try to keep your legs gripping the gas tank/shrouds. I noticed when you shift you flick your knee off to the side. Best to nip bad technique before it becomes habit.

I second that. Let her scream!

Thanks for the advice, my bike is geared very low, so i do have to shift alot.  :)
