Thanks, guys, I really do like this bike, the previous owner debaffled it so its about as loud as my step dads harley, and its a really nice deep tone, even at high rpms. The only gripes I have about the bike, are that its hard to shift out of neutral on a quick launch sometimes, which might be a linkage issue, and the rear brake pedal is kind of high up, so I have to bring my foot completely off the peg and up to push down on it, where as the vulcan I could just slide my foot over and be on it. Not having a centerstand is definitely kind of a bummer, but it did kind of look goofy on the vulcan, so I can do without it. The cool thing about the old vulcan is that I sold it to a buddy of mine, so Its still in the family, an hopefully he can get her back to the way she used to be. The marauder has plenty of power, and I really like the riding position, I was keeping up with harleys yesterday, and had a pretty good run with some kind of crotch rocket last night. I like it, haha.
