My son is north of 200 lbs and we are about to take this thing to Cherokee NC. Expecting a speed demon, no. Just a fun ride. We will report. If it can be fun in the mountains, it'll be a blast at home. All he is looking for is a nimble errand bike with looks. Also, he rode a 125cc GROM and got 60 mph out of it on the flat, this thing ought at least out perform that.

Picked up Sigmund, son bought the Janus. We rode about an hour in the Ohio countryside. We loaded up and are in Cherokee NC now with plans to ride a loop tomorrow, probably down through Bryson City to the Tail of the Dragon and back.

If you are nearby, come ride with us! I'll check my messages in the morning before we head out. We are staying in Cherokee.
