But seriously, anyone have experience with bike alarm? can someone recommend brand/place to install.

 

Maybe those with tilt/movement sensor and immobilizer...:-)

Way to go and congrats to another Softail rider - If you bought the Fatboy I think you did (beach bars), you will not be dissapointed.

 

Hope to see you on the road sometime.

I'd like to know as well. I think some kids are sitting on my bike in the car park. I have a cover on it, and can see where they butt sits. Pisses me off as more likely to break something on it if you cant see it (like to rear turn signals) :(

I believe the 883R can hit 150 - 160km/hr when fully maxed out

 

It's a perfect bike for city riding, beats all the big twins anytime.

 

but forget it if you want to tour.

 

If it can hit 160kmph maxed out, then I guess cruising at 140kmph should be fine .. just keep the legs closed :lol:

 

But I wonder how taxing will the engine be at that speed. Imagine the engine (a 883cc V-Twin) running at 5,000rpm at 140kmph :faint:

 

 

my 883 is big bored to 1200 can reach 170kmh even b4 i did the convert . for touring and constant speed at 160 is out of the question catching too much of wind. now i tour with my softail instead much more stable but still at 160 nah .....

 

Wow 170kmph before convert? Is it a carb or EFI model (or does it matter)? Did you do any mods to it? I think it is still ok to tour with a sportster depending on how I cope with the wind blast. I ever toured with my Street Triple with a heavy backpack.

 

How much does it cost to convert to 1200 (by the dealership)?

 

Haha.. That was a looong tine ago bro.. Actually I like all kinds of bikes,but I guess my favs would be custom cruisers and classic Vespa

 

:cheeky:

 

Yah that was like 5 - 6 years ago. I didn't think that I would end up with a Class2 license haha. I guess I'm hooked ever since I started riding. The Shadow125 was good looking and comfortable, but too under-powered. Still a very unique and nice bike though!

"Beat all the big twins anytime" ???

 

I think your either lucky or dreaming that this will never happen. Theres alot of big twin out there where their bike itself are real fast,but sometimes also depends on the rider. but as for the machine alone, unless you are having a super mob for drag race but riding on the road,then maybe you still stand a chance.

 

 

Yes, I meant for city riding, the sporty beats the big twins anytime in terms of overall suitability. top reason of course is manouverability, other reasons include fuel consumption. I'm not referring to speed at all as you have misunderstood.

 

Harleys are generally slow. period. dont talk about modding etc etc... becos then there is no end and no basis for discussion anymore.

 

just in case you think I'm jealous or against any big twin. I'm not.

Yohji,

 

Harleys rumble rattle and roll. vibration is an issue which you must accept.

Of course, there has been great improvements in that area with the newer models and rubber mounted engines etc... but be prepared for the buzzy feeling after long rides.

I love rumbling engines (used to ride a Monster L-twin) but not one that sounds like it's going out of breath or very stressed (high pitched sound at 140kmph). Sounds .. very irritating leh ..

 

What's the highest speed u ever went on ur 883R? How did it sound?

I ride my 883R very gently, 130km/hr as far as i can remember was the fastest i went.

 

mostly i ride at 80 - 90km/hr for cruising.

I only ride in singapore nowadays
