New Roadie Rider in St. Louis metro area

Hi y'all

Just transferred over from the Vulcan Riders forum... traded my Vulcan 900 Classic last weekend for an awesomely accesorized Midnight Star! First large-engine bike I have owned and I can't believe what I've been missing!

On the Vulcan I was at high rpms in 5th gear at 70 mph on the highway... now I am just humming nicely in 4th! Love it!

Welcome to the site Tiger J! We've got a few wild and crazy folks on here, but we all seem to have fun and there is a lot of great information!

I shouldn't have said "humming"... that was my old stock exhaust Kawi 900. My Roadie has BUBs and a Kury Hypercharger and it is more like "thundering" nicely in 4th!
