Any suggestions?

Skip the cheese fries at lunch?  My bike would be way faster if I did.

Did a drag race with my daughter and lost.
Did it again, lost again.
Then I cheated and won with the smallest margin.
Got to race again, clean. And lost.
Gave up.
She has a Honda SH300i.
A motoscooter, I lost from a motoscooter, FCOL.  :'(

Any suggestions?

Take the scooter away and make her ride the school bus! >:(
I've gone back to my roots. British 1 lunger, stump puller.

 Nitrous.

Or change the race to a tractor pull or cross country on trails.
I can break it better,,,,at night, in the rain, on the trail,, 20 miles from nowhere.

Drain her gas tank just before you leave the house so she only has enough gas to warm up and go 100 feet.  That'd be funny!   ;D  In fact I'm going to remember that trick for when my kids are old enough to drive.  LOL

She has a Honda SH300i.
That's one I wish they'd import into the U.S.  I'd consider trading my Vespa P200E for that one.

Some good tips there. Thanks mateys.  ;)

Trail would be too easy; I'll blame it on the pizza,... and the fries.

Hush hush, just between us, that Honda is a decent machine: reliability of a rock, for a scooter large wheels, slim and light. But she takes offense that I get all the waves.  ;D

I have the fortune of living in an area that has an abundance of Hot Rod enthusiast.  And at the local Sonic Drive-In down the street, every Friday night throughout the spring, summer and fall, all the local hot rodders hang out for a weekly get together.  No membership or entry fees, just a bunch of good 'ol boys getting together to talk 'ol school muscle, cars and bikes.

I road the Indian down there tonight for the 1st time with my own ride to show off.  It got quite a bit of attention and a lot of thumbs up. n A couple of people came over that noticed the British styling and were intrigued.  I gave them a brief history and then started talking about they're old BSA's and Norton's.  Of course, there were a lot of people that wanted to hear it, so I made sure to open her up as I was leaving.   ;D

After the meet, I went back to friends' house who was there with his Chevy pick up and drank some beers.  Had a great night!

Went down to my dealer (about 60 miles away), and noticed a tremendous rattling sound coming from the tank.  Mechanic even rode it for a while to notice it and determined valve noise...  Assured it was safe to ride home, it was still rattling like crazy (and definitely not valve noise).  I remembered one of our members story about his IBA run, and after I got home, I found that the tank retaining bolt was loose, as well as the other bolt that held the bracket from the 1st bolt to the throttle body.  Tightened them up and no more rattling!  ;).  Thanks guys, the information on here really does help!

I made some carb and timing changes and hit 87mph.  ALMOST fast enough for the flux capacitor to kick in.  ;)

 I made the mistake of taking my 8y/o daughter for a ride (I'd just put the dual seat back on). Now every time I go near it she's jumping up and down "take me, take me, the motor bike yay!" . My one escape has been compromised. Shoulda thought that one thu.

Or future riding buddy ?

 One thing that is certain, the young lady now has the precious memory of time time well spent with her father that will last a lifetime.
