Well, first off.. running from the cops is a bad idea anyway.

Second, STOP creating more division between riders. I have the highest respect for my fellow riders, regardless of what they ride... Pilots who fly F-14's are no more/less of a pilot than those who fly 747's. (and I don't see them claiming they are) My HD is nowhere close to having the agility of my GSXR, but I'm not notorious for riding slow, especially in the twisties...

Ride more, judge less....

all of it sad but true, well except the hardley riders being full of . why is that? because they bought the bike they wanted, or is it because they dont ride what you ride, or is it that they are not full of and its your metric brain that is clouded.

at the 130 - 135 range, its not very happy stability wise.
when it was stock, with a windsheild and headwind, it would struggle to get 120. at 120, it would start head shake etc....
I went to avon tires, fork brace and lowered better springs/suspension and now can blast to the top of the gears, I just dont do it very often, really havent been above 110 in ages.

Oh you got a sportster yea, those are alot faster and lighter than 88inchers even the 98ers.

Yea, I don't take my chopper over 110(have done it) very often either massive vibration.

and don't forget folks, the fastest production vehicle in the world is a HD. The VROD destroyer that runs 9.25's straight out of the crate.

That's what the article said.
