By the way, my speedometer seems to say I am going about 10% faster than I am actually going. How can I correct this?

Thanks everyone for the good feedback.
BTW, eventhough the wife and I took the MSF and she's better than she thinks, it seemed too much for her to think about right now the hole clutch, break, shift thing so we looked for a scooter. We found this really cool Suzuki Burgman 400 and she loves it. Plenty of power and easy to ride and a nice low seat hight and a lower center of gravity. So if you know any woman that are intimidated by a m/c a good size scooter maybe the way to get them on two wheels.
Hizzo3, I live off Greenville & Mockingbird.

Dasher and Hizzo3
I live north of you outside Whitewright, I commute to Work in Richardson 90 miles round trip. I agree with the speed the 750 feels better at 60-65, but can do over a hundred on demand. I have been north of 90 mph in 2 years both times doing a carburetion check. My bike is a 1986 VN750A2. Down right now have the engine pulled redoing a stator gasket that appears to think it has to leave a oil puddle to feel at home. Wind is the limiting factor I have not found the right combo for this one . I currently use a National Deflector Shield. Though a great bike, this is the last bike I will buy as a rebuilder. Oh two things if you have not already one grease those splines, and second replace the battery with a sealed AGM. Regards ED

|kornolio||Usually on GS Parkway I do 75-80 (it's 5500rpm) - keep up with the trafic (yea, everybody goes at least 70 here), very often go up to 90-95 (6000+ rpm) when wind is not too gusty. The cycle really can make more than 120, once I did 115 - that's my record for now.|

I live in Dallas too...where abouts are ya. i drive from north dallas almost garland to dfw everyday for work down 635 (keep your eyes open here...very nasty drivers). In the HOV lane i do 65-80 depending on traffic and watch out for the HOV chip's :P. the wind will wear u out at that speed though. i prefer to ride in the right 2 lanes about 60-65... the drift from the cars in front helps alot... feels like 35... the farther left u go in lanes, the more wind you get(less cars).
On another note.... take a MSF course... i use stuff i learned almost daily in dallas... it was a big help. i took mine in garland. we should go for a ride sometime when i get my bike back (hit and run in the parking lot)
