No, I haven't ridden one but I rode a Ridgeback. I've had two Big Dogs so am used to the big tires and didn't notice any difference.mrputtr said:Thanks. Have you ridden the K9 and if so, any major difference in the handling with the 300?
I've had a few but all were taken care of by the dealer. The dealer is real important with these bikes. Check out these two websites for more info.mrputtr said:I'm going to ride them both at the VTwin Van Nuys store this weekend. I'll post when I'm done. Thanks Ray.
Any problems with yours?
It's the same set-up that was on my 03 Mastiff also. Simple carbon canister that the tank and motor vent to. Easy to remove as everyone does!!! I don't think there was any changes from 05 to 06 as far as EPA goes other than the bikes all ship with G carbs vice the E's for 05.mrputtr said:Hey Ray, I'm totally confused. I posted a question earlier regarding California EPA standards on 2006 bikes. All these articles I've been reading, etc. I was doing some research on the Internet earlier and saw that perhaps California has already started this nonsense as of 2004? I know you've got an 05. Did yours come with the smog canister on it? I'm trying to decide if the 06 is a bad idea; but if it's the same set up as the 05 I'm not as concerned. Pretty depressing reading about what's coming and the restrictions they're putting on bikes.
It's hard to prevent four guys jumping out and picking up your locked bike and throwing it into the back of a pickup. It probably takes 30 seconds. I broke my clutch cable while at little sturgis on titty alley and four of us picked it up and put it in the back of my friends pickup and it only took 30 seconds.mrputtr said:Thanks Ray. Unrelated topic; how do you keep your bike from being stolen.
