JJ Cycles Sid Vicious XVX and Pitbull
The challenge was put down in the most egregious of ways. I get a picture from Jimmie Jax with his Deezul Challenger track 2 lap average beating my 2 lap average. To say I was insulted isn't true, it was a challenge. Then after playing with different bikes, I beat him fair and square by 0.2 of a second. Good enough right? Nope, he did it again and beat my time by 3 seconds. He proved his point with the JJ Cycles Sid Vicious.
Connecting with his effort to improve vehicle physics and maximizing the KCP script engine along with his own proprietary stew of scripts, Jimmie's bikes are far better rides than I have experienced in the past. Good builders can make great bikes ride reasonably well. Great builders can make great bikes ride exceedingly well and he has done so with his new line of bikes.
By introducing the Sid Vicious, a pure bred race bike, the bike flat out flies. In the right hands, lap times will get up into the top 10 or top 5 at Challenger. Sadly, the best I could muster was 54.9 seconds in fourth gear. I'm sure with some added tweaks, I could get to maybe 52 seconds and with more time and cussing, I would beat Jimmie's 48 second lap time. The challenge is still on Jimmie! I will take you down!
The truth is I'll never be a racer though it is fun to go fast. I'm humbled by the Sid Vicious and its capacity to fly though I'm competitive enough to still try. From a looks point of view, the Sid Vicious is more space age as a race bike. It doesn't resemble anything you might see in real life which might turn people off. I like it though, it has a purpose built design and while it looks like your riding a whale, you'll be riding a bike which is easily handled and is very fast. I hit my best time in 4th gear if that gives you an idea of what it can do.
Then comes along the Pitbull. A ripping bobber that goes like a bat out of hell and you'll look awesome on the ride out with your MC and friends. I like the solo seat and clean lines. In tuxedo black, the bike exudes class and refinement .
I have to say of all of the styles of bikes, the bobber look always captures my attention. With the new design and development Jimmie has undertaken, the Pitbull is one of the best riding bikes in the JJ Cycles line. With each release, the bikes get better and I'm enjoying riding JJ Cycles bikes even more. You will too.
With Jimmie tirelessly working in his secret laboratory, which I'm not allowed to disclose its location under pain of death, you can expect to see some much improved creations. Improved upon what were already some pretty fabulous bikes. If you never thought things could get better, try riding one of the new JJ Cycles and your hope will be restored.
