Top gear, or fifth, has a higher gear ratio for highway cruising, but I still found myself hunting for that nonexistent sixth gear.

When I want to read a really good Harley thread, I just turn to VolusiaRiders.com

Nice write-up. I wonder what a set of those alum. rims would cost and if they'd fit my 05?

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

nice right up, but how would the heel toe sifter be with a larger foot, that pic already looks cramped

If you wanna know where the lower shore is, just head to the end of the earth and hang a left, 2 blocks over and your there

Hey Viper, I read that same line and thought to myself it should have said something about adding a DJ / Kruze drive ~laugh~

They are. I wear a size 13 and it can be a PIA sometimes with hard stiff boots. I wish the toe/heel shifter was about 2" over all in length for my needs.
