    "Bobber" sounds very, uh, deserving of diversity tolerance.

    Had my 48 for a year now, never missed a beat and with a set of pipes, filter and stage one tune, it's a hoot plus does keep your licence in tact although it's definitely not slow off the line to 100…. just as you said, short blasts are where it works best. Love it m/
