Eurobike Raleigh 2014

The morning of Saturday April 5th shall be remembered for two things. I took my first long ride on the Sabre and I attended Eurobike Raleigh 2014.

The Sabre rocks! It humms along at speed with ease and it’s actually not bad on the posture. The riding position is for sure NOT meant for long distance but it was OK on an hour long stint. It handles quite well and feels very stable with a smooth power plant that delivers when asked even at the lower RPMs. Averages about 35 MPG. Steering takes some muscle to induce a turn at speed but that just makes it feel a little more in control in freeway traffic where I don’t want a bike to be sketchy. Overall I love it for the hand built fun that it is!

The Eurobike turnout was impressive with a wide range of newer bikes and some beautifully restored older machines. The Cafe Racer contingent was there as well with an odd mix of machinery as were a few scooters. It was a well organized event thanks the Do The Ton Triangle crew.

The video pretty much covers it so enjoy and…

keep on hackin!
