Not sure about anyone else, but I have a hard time cruising on my raven. For some reason I just want to go like a bat out **** on it..lol.. I noticed this other day, when I went riding with some freinds. Everytime I looked in my mirror they wayyyyyy behind me. So I decided to follow them for a while... omg, I couldn't take it.

What is your crusing speed? ( mine is about 70-85 )

How fast dose it take you get to your cruising speed? ( not sure, but I like to twist the throttle, I guess you could say fast )

I've been trying to find out that problem as well I've narrowed the problem down between the handlebars and the seat.

Thought I had an issue with the power of the Stryker, but I think it's just a gearing issue. The bike just likes to go fast and is much more comfortable that way.

Thats why unless i'n on the interstate I never use fifth gear. I have found that fourth keeps me in the 55-60 mph range.
