I got the Honda back...

Well I got the Honda back. My brother in law got deployed for three years and can't take the bike with him. It may be for sale.

Now I have to decide if it will be two, three or four cylinders for the day.

Superchicken it is, and I'm kinda borrowing it myself. Hahahahahaha.

I had it for one summer already. Great bike. I almost bought one instead of the Triumph. It handles great and the ergonomics are more relaxed. The only thing it lacks is balls. I haven't ridden it since he took the factory pipes off it and he said it gained alot. So I'm anxiously waiting for its arrival this Thursday.

what kind of pipes did he put on it? friend of mine has one with i think dual hindles on it. the sound is inf--kingsane, like the loudest thunder you can imagine on wheels. it seemed to have great power, just delivered alot smoother than an inline 4. not nearly as spuratic..

I think he put Micron high mounts with jetting kit and a K&N. I really was alot faster in the corners with the superchicken, just exiting and getting back on it is where the Daytona had more punch. I was buying a Superhawk til the guy sold it out from under me and then I found the deal on the Daytona. I may still end up with one if it is cheap enough. My brother in laws bike is damn near cherry and more $$$ then I can swing right now. I'll get some fresh pics this weekend.

what is he asking for the chicken, just out of curiosity.

ever ridden a TL1000s? i personally havent, but its a favorite of mine as far as looks. AND its a 1000 cc twin! what could be better? ive heard they are really heavy though. anything known as the "widow maker" must either be stupid powerful or have some sort of major glitch..

He is unsure what he wants to do right now.

I have never ridden a TL. I heard it outruns the chicken but the chicken will out handle it. I'll post up what he wants for it if he sales it.

It looks like E.T should be sitting in a basket on the front of that silver thing
