Oh great. Just what the world needs: another obnoxiously loud bike! (I shouldn't talk, my RMK has a can that is pretty obnoxious. At least I don't ride it up and down the street for six hours at a time, breaking everyone's eardrums.)
Have ~1800 miles on the bike so far this year. I'm a little torn, because there's a lot I'd like to do with it, but have a hard time justifying buying parts for a 903cc cruiser. All told though, it's actually turned out to be a pretty good bike with a decent amount of power (probably more than most stock HD's, but still not enough.... and my XS750 makes more). I made it back from the Keweenaw Beer Run on Sunday, around 800 miles up and back in a long and rainy weekend.
It was just some Dbag that kept trying to pass us. We were all in the left lane, doing 75-80 and it was pretty clear each time he tried to pass in the right lane that he wouldn't make it. The 3rd or 4th attempt happened at an on ramp, the guy pretty much refused to let traffic into the right lane. When he finally realized traffic was trying to merge, he tried to push his way into the left lane....aiming right for one of the guys riding ahead of me. Luckily nobody got hit and he finally turned off or just stopped trying to be an idiot.
I wanted something newer, cheapish and Fuel Injected. So that's how I ended up with this one as my commuter scooter. Rides really nice around town, and still a small enough bike that easy easy to throw around but big enough that it should be comfortable on the open road.
Small enough to throw around? Really? I don't care what anyone says about a GoldWing being to big and bulky other than bring it on!!!
