    Picked the bike up this evening.
    Warmed the plug, stuck in some fuel and 2 stroke oil and bump started it up
    the rood. 3 attempts and it was running.
    Surely just a Gianelli spannie and silencer alone can't make a '78 DT175MX
    go that well?!
    It flies!!! :)
    Way, way quicker than my mates de-restricted 'Powervalve' DT125LC, and it
    seems a fair bit quicker than my old SRX400...
    I've never been one for 'popping a wheelie' coz I don't know how, but this
    things gets about 18" of air changing into 3rd gear with less than
    5000rpm...
