I took the bike out for a spin last weekend and went to the new grand opening of a Harley dealership in NH, the new Laconia Harley. When I pulled up I parked right next to a guy leaning on his Street Glide 96ci. I get off and he says, "Thats a Yamaha?" with a real sarcastic, demeaning look on his face. I say "yeah, thats a Harley?" and he goes, "yeah a man's bike". I go, "wanna see this Yamaha smoke that man's bike? He starts up his obnoxiously loud hog and we leave the parking lot and pull up to a stop light right by the dealership. We both pop the clutch and race to the next light a little under 1/4 a mile away. I take him by about a length and a half, maybe two. He goes, "thats a fast yamaha" and I say, "Yeah and its stock too except for the pipes, what about yours?" He ended up having about 2k in the motor from cams to exhaust and some other crap Im sure. Hopefully this guy has a little more respect for our name now.
