You are very correct, although not a very good job as I am most definitely not a graphics artist. Just didn't like the background (at the factory) that my picture had so added one that was more appropriate Even my website isn't great as I designed it myself instead of having a professional design it (have to be able to work on it myself while on the road). Would gladly accept any suggestions that would make it a better looking site or would improve my photo skills for the Ride.

I would definitely change the rear tires, add a canopy, and make sure the deck is mounted and raised as high as possible. Also add some slime to the tires to avoid flats. possibly inquire about going with a taller tire to raise to mower a little higher off the ground. Suspension seat is a must have, a good chiropractor wouldn't hurt either.

I hope you have really thought this through. You should have went with a mower with a suspension system like Ferris. If it's about speed a Hustler Super Z with flex forks would have been a good choice.

How fast does this mower you have travel? Is it modified for more speed?

I would also get some extra front rims and tires for it. At full speed the front tires like to wobble alot on the mid mount ZRTs. How about a pit stop at Orange County CHOPPER on your way through NY. The did build a bike for Dixie chopper. You could get the discovery (TLC now) to film some of the ride or atleast your apearence at OCC.
SOUPY- that mower does have flex forks.

You may want to get some head and tail lights for that Dixie.

I would put the smallest possible pulleys on the hydros and biggest possible pulleys on the engine - should be good for another 5mph more. Taller tires - 1-2mph more. Hustler super z - a few mph faster?
