Question Any ND riders out there?

I doubt it because I'm pretty sure I'm one of 4 people in this state, but hey who knows, right?

I'm a Vulcan rider in Fargo but don't leave town with the bike since it's not geared well for highway.

2002 vn750 12K+
custom stainless steel toolbox cover.
removed goat and replaced with crossover pipe.
drag handlebars.
kuryakyn grips, pegs and control covers.
removed license plate light.
relocated regulator.
coil power relay.
mcct conversion on front.
installed coasters.
recovered seat.
earshaved and rejetted.
custom metallic blue paint.
added hard saddlebags with taillights.
lubed spline when changing tires
eventually add volt meter.

only time I took it on interstate I was at 6000 rpm keeping up with traffic and had to stop every 90 miles to refuel. I like it great for commuting in town but wish it was geared taller for highway.

I have rode my vn750 all the way to Algona, Iowa for the freedom Rally, twice, towing a trailer behind it...had no problem keeping up, but yeah still had to refuel every 90 miles.
