Default My new Warrior

Just on 5 weeks ago I bought myself a xv1700 Road Star Warrior. It wasn’t planned however, I was sick of outing good hard pensioner money into my 1200 sporty. I looked at quite a few bikes, but none grabbed me. Then I decided to search down the Gold Coast. I see this white monster V Twin and I said I had to have it. Then I thought I should find out what it was lol. When I found out the first thing I did was Google it which took me to YouTube. By the time I watched everything I could find out I knew that she was meant for me. There are some extras in the bike. Hyper charger ( don’t know if it really works or not ) set it T-bar handlebars as well as Vance and Hines exhaust. How fast does it go you ask lol. Well I was riding with a 1700 Harley and when we got in the open road a nod started a race. At one stage I looked down and I was doing 195 and I said to myself “ your too old for speeds like that” Being 63 it was both scary and a blast. BTW I felt that the bike still had a bit under her skirt.

Hello Bob, welcome aboard. I hope you will post a few pictures in your profile album. Yes, at 195kph you were about ~5kph from the regulated top speed (about 200kph or about 125mph), and you were for certain running wild with your hair on fire! Yes this bike has more room to run with ECU mods especially like the Ivan's flash (which also smooths out the vibrations in WOT. I see Dutch offered to meet-up (in your first thread) you'll be in good company. Have fun.
