    Great gearing with the wind but I wouldn't want to turn around and come into it . Also Florida is pretty flat.

    Do the forks flex much when you're putting the power down, or do they only move if it's a bumpy road?

    Yes, They Flex as You Go, Specially IF You're Standing!!!!
    They are Mostly for Aesthetics Purposes!
