Way more harmless than it looks...unless you do something stupid...

If you sit in neutral and whack the throttle it kicks right...if you running down the road and whack the throttle in gear, it'll kick slightly right, under normal throttle control, it just goes.

It belies its size...especially the LS3 2009 model. Fuel injected, smooth and silky and just moves! Schweet ride! Two gears, powerglide type tranny with torque converter. No clutch lever...so its shift from neutral into 1st or overdrive and give it a little gas. Thats it. the rest of the learning curve is slow speed handling, using reverse, being mindful of where you park it for good grip for your feet etc. We recommend people ride it solo for 500 miles...enough time for you to get the stiffness out of you and get that stupid grin off your face and just relax and let the beast work for you.

Cheers
