starting is not scary if you know how the bike reacts when you put it in gear.

I run along the left side of it, then when I get a little speed, I jump on the

saddle and hit it in 2nd gear. Ofcourse, the choke is allready at max, before

I even start running. Most of the time mine catches on immediately.

/>The problem is, when it doesn't start, and you're allready geared

up (suit helmet gloves etc..) :(
After three tries I usually am so

exhausted, I have to get the car and cables to start her up.
