3,000 Miles on a '00 Blast!

I couldn't really think of a 30 hp 500 Single as just a "beginner bike", so I treated the Blast like a motorcycle, and put it to the various uses I expect it to see in service. Just so you know where this is coming from, I'm not a racer or an engineer, but a road rider with about 250,000 miles logged, no wrecks or injuries. Experienced, but not an "expert". Take it for what it's worth. Happy reading and good riding - Joe Peralta
