Gonna do it! DJ Drive.

I'm always the end user of everything I own. I'm never able to get my money back out of anything, and I own my cars until the wheels fall off.
So I figure since I paid too much for my 09 Bully that I'll never recover, I might as well make the very best of it.
AFAIC, I've already had as much fun out of it as I paid, so everything forward is just icing on the cake.
From all the reading here, it seems the DJ is about the best thing one can do to this bike.
I got Corey on it, he's shipping today!

I’m sure you will love the change it makes... There will be some necessary adjustments to make to your riding routine and expectations in some areas though... just minor ones...

You won’t be able to start out in second gear at a stoplight as easily if you forget to shift all the way to first.....

And a slight bit of feathering the clutch to get going from a stop.

But after the first week you shouldn’t even remember the difference in the “heat of the moment”!!

You'll love it once you get use to it.

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

I'll try to add to the pictorial library on this.
Maybe pics, maybe I'll go as far as a youtube, especially if folks want it.

Your going to love it. We do at least one, sometimes 2 at the wrench party every year.
