I live west of Seattle and will be moving to Las Vegas as soon as our house sells. Decided to ride my 1100 Classic to Vegas, then to Laughlin for the rally, then back to Vegas where I left the bike at the son's house. 1600 miles for a 64 year old Granpa. Met the son in Sacramento so he could ride the last lap with me on his '09 Fat Bob. My '09 1100 Classic ran like a champion. That included several long sprints at 80+. Only changes made were to synthetic oil, throttle lock, sissy bar and wind shield by Memphis Shades. Wind shield didn't like the high speeds but worked well enough. Didn't see alot of v-stars at Laughlin. Mostly Harley's. Still wondering why you buy a $30,000 bke and than trailor it. Yup, they're real tough bikers!
