My 97 road king has 84000+ right now. I have never been onto the top end past a manifold/carbuerator change to an s&s job 30000 miles ago.
I think he meant mid fifties horsepower.

Hanger1 wants to know Dino or Syn?
45K on mine. Runs like its new. Trade in starts to depreciate once you get over 30K and continues the longer you go but, if your like me and plan on keeping it as long as its still running, then that shouldn't be a problem.

Hanger - How does all that weight hanging off the back like that affect handling and stability? Are you generally riding two up when you have the back packed that way?
