Ah man, the 1300 Deluxe is sah-weet! I'm hoping to set up my candy red 950 in a similar fashion. I'm gonna get an MS batwing this year, then maybe afford the hard bags next year. -- Welcome to the forum! And thanks for the pic! <Me=Jealous>

Welcome to the forum from East Tennessee there Rev. Love that color scheme on the 1300s. How's the performance on it? That's my favorite look of the 1300s. Ride safely and thanks for including a pic with your intro.

Yea I got the biggest bike so the girl can enjoy being a rider for the first time, otherwise I might have gotten a regular 1300...candy red must be a sexy looking color!

I'm in Chambersburg, exit 16 off 81, and I work off exit 14 for Schneider trucking...maybe one day I might see you, I'm off 3 days a week since I switched jobs. I was working 6 days a week, so I have time to enjoy the bike this summer for sure.

Eh I'm not very happy with the performance, my brothers ninja 650 is the same HP 😠 but I'm planning on doing Ivan's tune, with a slip on and intake pod, and possibly fuel controller. From what it seems with the research I've done, the slip on makes more HP than full exhaust, which makes no sense to me because of the catalytic converter. Also if I get Ivan's tune I'm not sure yet if I even need a fuel controller, so we will see. But to have 92hp and not 72 will make me feel a little better till warranty dips out, then I'll do engine work, or a Raider swap if it's even possible. I haven't researched that yet.
