I agree with you. Anytime there is a completely new model there is a greater chance for little (or big) things to go wrong. I took a chance getting the 2011 honda odyssey years ago right when it...

They are actually hubcentric! That is one reason I am going to go with them. I also liked the Niche Targas in black, but they weight 6 lbs more than the Ace ones, and you need centering rings. ...

I would say that once you get used to the more sensitive throttle response, you likely won't notice the throttle lag at all anymore. I hesitate to say it's completely gone without going out and...
