Say Vinnie, do you have one of these braces? How well does it work?
Thanks, Eric
Glad to see that your back on the road. Regarding the rear struts I know that comfort might suffer but how did it preform in the turns. Did you hit any bumps in the turns?
Put it this way I could have dragged my Knee Sliders Easily!:diablo:
No I haven't yet.I have thought about it.
very surprised how good she Handled at 155+mph!
I hope that you have some connections in the LVPD!
Who said I was on a Public Road?:rolleyes:;)
Kaz... I was working the other day and "clocked" you doing 75mph in a 25mph zone, doing a wheelie, and sitting backwards on the bike! That's about 25 bizillion dollars in fines!:D

Yes Sir!:notworthy
I think all V-Rods have high MPH potential.I've had mine buried.140 plus!Next to a Yammadog, on a public highway.It was hard to hang onto with everything in the stock locations.

My 147lbs can't !:eek: Thats why I built the drag peg set up!Very Comfortable at VERY VERY High Speed!With the New Motor and Gearing change I should be 150+ in the 1/4!:cool:
You guys are the king of speed on the V-rod. The fastes I've had mine up to was 130 on a downhill part of the better freeway system on Oahu, called H-3.

At 130 it seemed the bike hunkerd down and was srtraight as an arrow. Had a hard time with the feet and pant legs in the stock position, and my ball size dropped to teeny so I backed off. Not so much the worry bout handling issues, as I was impressed, it was what could happen to the liscense if caught.

Last year Feb my wife and I rented a Elctra Glide in Vegas, and we darn near froze our butts off, so Kaz, I am sure it took awhile to thaw out after a couple high speed distance rides. Sure envy the open roads there though, as there is plenty of space to do your thing!
Thats honkin in the1/4.My brother that is a modifieing freak is a top dog tech on a 130+ 8.90's in the 1/4 on a 610cc Banchi.There hoping for 5.20S in the 1/8.Sumbitch runs on 60% fuel and lasts about twice as long as a top fueler!
Kaz if you ever make it to gainesville please let me know.I think you'd love some of our stuff.
