Rode one of these

in 2006. The salesman told me not to treat it like my Harley. He said if I take off, on this one, like I do on my Ultraglide, I will be picking it up after it comes out from under me. I think that was a slight exageration, but this bike has got some serious HP and torque. He told me to take off like I normally would, but don't give the bike any throttle. I said that the bike will go dead, but it didn't. The low RPM torque just powered it out of the parking lot and once I cracked the throttle, it took off like a...Rocket. It went from 40 to 150 in just a few seconds. I didn't even gear down to make that happen. I was passing a truck and almost didn't get my lane change in before I overtook that truck. These are quick as greased lightning. The only problem that I had with it was hitting a bump while in the middle of a turn. The suspension was so tight that the frontend would bounce you wide while coming out of the turn. I have also read this in reviews. When I get to the point of owning another bike, this is the one I am gonna get.

Go ahead punk, Make My Day!
