Betty blu is the cobalt blue and pewter pear ultra .( with all the touring gear on the ground )
This was 2008 . She has went many miles and accomplished many things since then.

I sold it to Darrell Smith. he ran it at the last B/G race.He ran a 11.0 on it ,foot shifting and no engine kill.
he was  in quarter finals in E class. went out to Donnie in a close race in SE.

it should run a 10.7 with him on it,with the air shifter and kill working again. he is gonna run 10.90 with it next year and of course E class. he was 2011 E class champ.big boy can ride.when he has a decent ride. (his luck with bikes aint to good) he's hard on equipment  :hyst:
I will ask about the Iron Man shifter. I like foot shifting ..easier on equpment ...man its gonna be a long winter
