Aha, so there are a few about... This may sound like a very thick question (so what's new) but how the devil do you ride such torquey bikes? I can see with big inline fours that to just potter about (blown or stock) one just stays out of the power band higher in the revs, but a Buell/HD, are torquey enough anyway, and only rev thru to 5-6000 and that's it. So with a blower what do you do, just ride it around in 5th all day? If you can smoke a blown full dress, surely a relatively lively thing like the Buell is gonna eat tyres no matter how gently you try and ride it, coz the main thrust is coming in so low down. 110 horses at 5000 revs sounds mental. Makes my 6 seem puny. Hohum, roll on the next pay cheque. Regards, Andy ><<Dateianlage: UNAUTHEN.TXT>> > I still have the turbo Buell,..been very busy in the shop.
