I listen to music all the time when I ride. In fact, I can't do a highway trip without music.I rode a 1200 sportster last summer and it was surprisingly nimble and powerful.If I were going to ride a cruiser, I'd personally only look at HD and Indians.More than any other style of bike, i feel like you're really buying into a look/feel/brand/whatever with cruisers rather than technical specs and if that's the case, you might as well go OG.
Never judge a bike by its stock exhaust tho.
Ear Peace HD.
I always thought the fairings on a sportbike were supposed to help wind-wise on the highway.
Took the bike out on the highway and some country back roads this weekend. I love this thing.
It's not the most accurate comparison but anytime I see supersports on the street, I liken it to driving one of those made-for-racing Ferraris that come without the stereo and A/C as your daily driver.
Thanks. I paid $7K and it's got ~10620km on it. So in USD/imperial, that's $5475 and 6600 miles. I've only ridden around the block because it's not yet plated but holy. So smooth and you can feel the power on tap - and i didn't even get above 4000 rpm.
Oh - one more thing. Given that i justified this bike to myself with the self-invented need for a more highway capable bike than my Bonneville, I'm also rethinking the overseas vacation plans I had this year in lieu of a local longer road trip (1-2 weeks). Should I head west to Vancouver via the Rockies/Wyoming/Montana. I won't be camping - likely motels, etc along the way - so will be packing light. Where can/should I go? Don't say Tail of the Dragon. related: anyone...
Nothing wrong with a kit. Someone else went though all the trial and error to come up with something that works and looks good so you didn't have to.
