It's so smooth fast when you want to hammer down, but great for cruising at 50 as well. Harley screaming eagle, hopped up cams got on it hard at a stop light so I got on it hard as well, no contest was ahead and pulled away in 4th, dropped into 5 the and was gone...lol slowed and he rode by smiling as I pointed to the 111 and told him no wagging my finger......Attachment 112465Attachment 112473Attachment 112481
    Nice! Glad you are enjoying the new bike. Don't forget to keep up with the leather seats maintenance. That is the only thing I don't like about my corbin dual tour. I have to condition it constantly to keep it from drying out and cracking.

    What size was that screaming eagle? 96, 103, 110, 114, or 117?

    I remember when I was on the interstate on my Voyager once and a Harley Ultra was just gone. I could not even dream of keeping up with him. Back then I didn't know that it was common for people to hop up the Harley engines.

    The torque on these big engines sure is nice. The new M8 engines are noticeably better than the twin cam. From 103 to 107 but the seat of the pants feel is so much more.

    Situational awareness combined with skill is what keeps you out of harm's way.

    Did you square them off yourself or did the shop cut them that nice?

    Mine are still in their raw cut stage. The first one I got is a thicker material than the later one.

    Are you on Indians mailing list so you can get clearance merchandise?

    Two whole bike tarp covers were in their shop in a garbage bag saved for me, I pulled them out of a bag and rough cut them, then just folded the edges and tacked them to my wall temporarily till I frame them

    We are not getting above freezing for a week now in Middle Tennessee. The animals are going through the feed faster than normal. Come on Spring!

    Haven't ridden a bike since the 10th of December because of work trips, holidays and frigid weather. This time of year I think about sports cars. Same thing happens in the middle of summer as I get older.

    I need to call my parents today and see how they are fairing with the blizzard.

    Hi,

    Of those that you list, the Indian. Coolest cruiser two up cruising bagger there is. Now, for that money, and if comfort is important, then the choice is the BMW r1200rt. Comfortable, no ugly bat wing, lighter, faster, cheaper. I cannot go more than a few hours on a cruiser. everything just goes up one's butt and backbone. Your legs just lay there and atrophy. But the Indian is excessively cool. Yet, if I won one in a raffle, I would sell it and buy the BMW.
