That's fantastic

Great looking rig, and seems to have damn near anything you would want, no? Been so shitty here for weeks - seems it's only nice here when I am out of town. Perhaps this weekend I can get out

Put some miles on that machine!

The plan is after some initial local riding to get a feel for it, several people I work with and I are going to do an Iron Butt ride out past past Raystown Lake and back. There are at least three of us with new to us bikes.

The wife is already suggesting a ride to Charlotte NC to visit our youngest---Eight plus hours one way. The wife really thinks it looks comfortable.

Dirty fucking meteorologists.


I was unable to secure an enclosed motorcycle trailer, and with the weather people calling for rain, snow, sleet, and generally miserable conditions, I declined to go pick the bike up today.


After morning overcast, it is now sunny, and mid 50's.


So now, regardless what the weather is next weekend, I am bringing it home.

Unless you read on your newsfeeds about someone shooting TV weather people---That will be me.

I was more worried about the calcium and salt the State lays down where the bike is currently. Especially at the end of the season, they need to use all they can so the budget allows for all they think they will need.




Plus, in the last 6 years, that interstate has been closed due to snow for more than 24 hours at least twice. It is a dicey area, you leave one small valley, and as you enter the next you can be in blizzard conditions.

Just did two and a half or so hours, close to 140 total miles, most of it on the wonderful PA interstates. One pit stop, about 40 miles in, and a fuel stop at about 120. She is a traveler. Loves the highway running. 70mph taching at a tick less than 3 grand, with a bunch of throttle left. I can see myself maybe getting into some mayhem with this one.


She gets a bit unruly on the surface streets, nothing to scary but she does not go into or out of the turns like the other bike. laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif



Pics to come

Just back from a quick 15 mile shakedown with the wife on back. Other than the braking, I couldn't even tell she was back there.


Nice..... laugh.gif happy2.gif grin3.gif smile.gif

At what point did the wife leap off in terror? laugh.gif

That is one pretty bike even if you did have to put the Confederate battle flag on her.

The flag was on it when I bought it, It will be coming off today. Not because it offends me or you, but because it, and the US flag on the opposite side are kind of tacky.

113 cubic inches. 1900cc.


The only stock production power plant that is larger is on a new Triumph Rocket model, but even I thought a 2300cc motorcycle was a bit much.

Okay that's a big fucker. My Road Glide is a 103". Great torque on these big fuckers, no?

You have probably already appreciated the roll on power on the freeway. Now ride that bitch to Tennessee and we'll go to Nashville grin3.gif

Great torque is what got me in trouble close to the end of the ride home. Coming through an S turn on a back road, I have been taking it in third on the Suzuki, and throttling up just as I begin exiting. On the Strat, I almost ended up in the ditch on the opposite side of the road. The power set me straight up, out of the lean. I wasn't expecting that. laugh.gif
