Thanks Frag. I have the Cobra AT installed already. Honestly, coming from a bike like the BMW RT, I have been spoiled. Its my doing and not the bike.
SillyFingaz said:Hmmmmm... Something's wrong.... I'm coming from almost a decade of mostly sportbikes and a few cruisers. Out of all the cruisers I've owned, this thing takes off like a bat outta **** especially after I adjusted the throttle immensely! As far as speed, My everyday ride to work at 1am averages between 85 and 105 mph and it runs smooth as ****! I don't want the windshield, I just wear a full face. Homnestly... either something's up with your bike or I got lucky because everything from take off to cruisin' at high speeds is perfect for a cruiser. I've owned 2 ZX10R's, 1 Hyabusa, 1 R1, 2 600RR's and 1 636..all of which can go from 0 to 100 in seconds so I'm very familiar with the feel and torque of the machine. This ain't a rocket but it's got one helluva kick for a cruiser. My friend who owns a Kawi Mean streak(1500CC's) and quite a few HD owners with much bigger engines were blown away when we all took off from a stop! Again, Something's seriously not right on your end. As far as gas mileage, I do 60 hard miles a day to and from work and put 87 in it and it's only costing me 5 bucks a day! AWESOME compared to my 4 cylinder Sport Bikes which I HAD to use 93 octane and burned gas like a mutha, I was putting 9-10 bucks a day for the same distance!
Thanks Silly, you are right....something is seriously wrong here......ME.
Thanks KCL, I have a dud and I am a dud. Yep, my expectations were too high for this bike.KCL-LABRAT said:Wow, you must have got a dud... Either that or you thought you should get a corvette for the price of a cobalt...
Rich, thanks. I am not beating myself up just diffusing some hostile responses from the others with my verbal judo....LOL. Like you said, I am riding!richard3 said:Its all good, you will find the right bike, this is only my second cruiser, and going from the vulcan 900 to this I am in heaven, I never want to get off, good luck with your search and stop beating yourself up...... Hey your riding !
thanks Silly, its a matter of perspective right? I think its ok to have different opinion on things. Chill bro.SillyFingaz said:I'm sorry... I keep hearing peeps complain about the power? Wait a minute.. it's a 1300CC V-Twin... What type of power are you all expecting? I think it's got great power for only a 1300. Again don't come close to my Sport bikes but I just don't understand the complaints about the power? It's perfect for a 1300CC! Get a bigger engine or a sport bike if you're looking for more. I curious as to what the star owners of the 650's, 950's and 1100's would say about the power of this bike. You bought a 1300 and you're getting the power of a 1300!
yes sir!SillyFingaz said:For that, you have to treat each and every one that posted on this thread to a Lobster dinner!
Thank you for your concern for my happiness.....megabuddys said:This thread stinks. If your not in love, your not in love, we get it. I understand it. maybe bored?
I have a 750hp car, my bike is a turd in reality.
I know when I cruise down the road in this Stryker, people Look, gawk, stare, etc. and Nothing else matters; because they are just JEALOUS I get soo many compliments and questions that I just cant think of anything not to appreciate.
I knew before I bought it, that it wasn't about performance, it was about style and comfort.
I hope that you find happiness buddy, there is always the one out there for you hehe
