Default When your SV has one too many wheels.

Found this on motorcyclespecs today.

Watch the video; poor thing is struggling just to go around a corner!

Credit where it's due, they've made a decent job. It does what it's supposed to do. Further testing and development would improve it, make it more fun.
I'd quite like a go.

Also a good video to demonstrate why Thou's need aftermarket cans
