It is a 2008 Chinese brand that I cannot pronounce. I think the meaning of the name means "speed demon" but I am not positive. It holds one gallon of gas. A single gallon. It cost me 4 bucks to fill her up and will go 80 miles before I have to fill it up again.
This baby is fast too. I got up to 45 on the way home. I get a little scared going more than that, but not to worry, I have already got my back road plan to get to school and work.
It was fun to pretend what we were talking about when we bought the thing. I asked questions like, "What kind of engine is in this thing?" And, "Where is the crank shaft?" I have no idea what a crank shaft is, but it made the salesman think, "this guy knows what he is talking about!" Cathi also asked what "safety features" it had. He mentioned something about the brakes, but I wanted to know where the airbags came out.
The bike cost us $1,300.00 and included a helmet and a trunk. It also included registration and taxes and a 6 month warranty. It's a good thing, because as soon as I got home, I noticed the fuel gauge wasn't working. I took it back and watched the guy fix it with some fancy shmantzy tool - a wire hanger! All seems to be working now and I am set to ride! I only need to pass a written exam and get it insured. (It is about $11.00/month to insure.) I will keep you updated on my test results in future blogs.
