i haven't been on much lately cuz my bikes run so good, i just ride them constantly and therefor get in more accidents. i'm learning to fix my own bones from the inside out using only my brain....
i only stopped riding my moped for 4 weeks and a day after last wreck. i was back on my citta, all oxycodoned up and full of staples asafp. i'm like 65 - 70% good right now and i still got 5 months of potential healing to do. but yeah. mopeds. vespa mopeds especially...
no giggling ok? this post has to do with vibrations and butts and stuff, BUTT i ASSure you it is entirely serious after this point.
the one thing about vespa mopeds that still mystifies me:
i have noticed this on several different bikes, with different motors, different setups, but they were all "kinda" fast. like 40 ish. some faster, some slower, different wheel diameters and gearbox ratios, circuits or simoninis. i think they all were variated and they probably all had little 50 - 65cc kits. my OG red ciao did it and my citta does it, as well as other peoples vespas.
so like i'll be blasting. going pretty fast/maximum fast for a while, and i feel my butt getting hot. i want you to know that i am being completely stone cold serious here. it feels like the seat is getting hot. like exhaust, or friction or something is making it feel like its on fire. this happens any time i go reasonably fast for more than a mile or 2. i'll reach down and touch it with my hand tho and its totally not hot. cool even. from being in wind. the vibrations some how get confused by my sensory organs and regitser as heat. like when your seat was sitting in the sun all day and actually is really hot. IT FEELS EXACTLY THE SAME!
does anyone else ever experience this?
