I don't think you are ever going to succeed in classifying anyone into one particular category, unless that category is mutually exclusive and valid. I think both the categories of 'Sportrider' and 'Harley Rider' are a perfect example of such misunderstanding and branding.
I really do not care what you ride, as long as you got two wheels, a friendly personality and enjoy your times on the bike no matter the skill level or pace. Anyone who argues the opposite does not know me very well.
Im all about the experiences a bike can give me, and most of my best memories were from the days were I was limited to riding a 50cc moped . But that moped was how I got into riding and the possibilities that came with that ownership has probably made me take up riding again after a number of years of abstinence.
I will ride anything once, but I have my preferences to what I want myself and what I would like the bike to do for me. Just because my bike isn't the same as yours doesn't mean jack - and I will wave to anyone who shares that philosophy
Dirk, on a serious note, what types of HP gains can typically be obtained with a Power Commander? Does it really make that much of a difference?
Are there other less expensive ways to achieve the same results?
Thanks for the quick response Dirk. Several folks on the Vulcan forum have said you really need to open the intake side of the engine before you start messing with anything else.
It is amazing how little HP is produced by a V-twin. You pointed that out recently with your example of the "new" Wide Glide.
very likely true. Your Vulcan is an overhead cam engine and as such should out perform a HD engine any day. Shop around for intakes. We have seen Victorys gain 10hp at the tire from just an aftermarket airbox.
i got progressive liability for one year $324, with one speeding ticket. what ya think. I going to take that msf class soon also.
