Default What color is the Power Band?

So I don't do facebook. I don't have anything against those that do, but it just isn't my thing. Posting my life for the world to see isn't exactly my idea of well... a good idea. (if that makes sense)

Anyway...

Every now and again I will sign in under my wife's account on facebook and browse the local classified pages in our area. I saw a post where a guy was selling his dirtbike and mentioned that it rides great and that you can really feel it when the power band kicks in. A guy commented on the post and said "what color is the power band? does is match the red on the bike?"

I had a mouthful of cocacola and almost spit it out on the screen from laughing. You can only imagine how bad the other people commenting on the post roasted him after that.

Hope you guys enjoyed that. Apparently the power bands these days are physical objects, and they need to be color matched to the dirtbikes.

haha.

A proper power band is red and painted around the cylinder. Those Facebook people are idiots!

I've always had better luck with the blue power bands, I tried yellow once but it was to much, just threw me off the back.

Power bands come in 2 modes:
Oh $hit, and WTF?

I.E.
that first ride on a 2 stroke mo'sikkil with a 'spansion chamber of old days.
twist the grip and say to yer self
"hey this is pretty quick, but I can master it"

Then the power band is reached, immediately followed by that loooong slide that never seems to end, resulting in various cuts/bruises and a shattered ego,
along with that familiar smell usually reserved for the porta potty @ a chilly cookoff

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
