Got my butt handed to me by a Harley night train

Today My nephew and I were leaving work on a road behind our plant that has absolutely no traffic. As we turned down the street we both rolled on the throttles and I rolled a second faster and then, he just pulled from me really strong. I have an 09 RS stock with Cobra slip ons. He has an 09 Night train with Screamin Eagle pipes, Screamin Eagle air induction and it has been re mapped. I knew he would take me I was just shocked at how he pulled me. Is this normal???

Similar displacement, a little lighter, and it had more mods with a tune. Not that hard to understand.

As said already, you have a weight handicap. The stock RS Warrior is a full 100 pounds lighter which WILL hang easily with any screaming eagle.

Now if you enjoy having your ass spanked try the same thing against a stock VTX1800.

I was just a little shocked, I didnt expect that much of a pull. I dont hot rod my bike often, however every now and the kid in me will come out and want to play.

Growing up can be fun sometimes Then that 'adult responsibility' crap starts and then the fun goes away

Flatulence is natures way of reminding us to laugh at ourselves.

Just take solace in knowing that your bike wont take a leek every time it parks up
