LMAO !!!!he said something about how quick my bike was. I didn't know if he'd admit it or not, but he did.
But he didn't say anything about not being able to leave me in his dust. I know he was thinking about it though. Just too proud to admit my little KAW was keeping up with his seventeen thousand dollar (used) custom harley.
Sorry to get off the subject plainsrider I never really took notice of the rpm at that speed but I have to respond to fergys comments.Fergy last year when my bike was new I had the same thing happen to me against a 1200 hardley and a 1602 victory the hardley I could pass at will had no trouble at all.I never tried it from a standstill.The victory was leading and I was watching his tailpipes when I saw a puff of black smoke come out of his pipes I would hammer it and he could not get away from me.As a matter of fact I was gaining on him until we hit 90 on a country road and I backed off.I thought it was a fluke.You cleared that up for me.We do have a great bike Thanks.By the way when I backed off I checked the rear view and the hardley was way back there.Max torque on our bikes is around 5-6K. Was riding with my buddy who just bought the 01 Road King last night. 1450 something cc's I believe. I was following him as we turned onto FM1431 and he gunned it trying to get away from me. He took me from the dead stop and was a good 50 yards in front of me but I caught him easily before he got to 65 mph. Those harleys have a lot of bottom end torque but they seem to run out of the high end of the power band pretty quick compared to ours. He tried it several times last night but never could get away from me. Then it was my turn to lead and he could only catch me when I leveled out at the speed limit. :rockon: We stopped to eat dinner way up at the north end of lake buchanan and he said something about how quick my bike was. I didn't know if he'd admit it or not, but he did.
This morning I turned onto the same road in the middle of town heading to work and pulled in behind a guy I work with that has one of the custom made, limited edition harleys, I think in a 1200 cc. He tried to pull away from me and couldn't. I was enjoying watching him shift down as he went up every hill and I would have to slow down to keep my distance. When we got to work he said he wondered if that was me. But he didn't say anything about not being able to leave me in his dust. I know he was thinking about it though. Just too proud to admit my little KAW was keeping up with his seventeen thousand dollar (used) custom harley.
