  1. Performance Upgrades/Mods
    Anyone running a cobra 2000? I have a 1800 (2003) just added the 2000. I have not seen much of a mileage increase or much power increase. A note though, I have not ridden it many miles since the addition. Any feed back would be great!
  2. Suspension / Frame / Body
    I have a VTX1800s (stock). I noticed that when I ride (like a rebel with a stolen bike) that I get pretty terrible gas mileage. I know our gas tanks are already pretty big, but the most I have ever gotten out of a tank was 120 miles. Has anyone done anything to extend the range? I was...

    So, after riding more than 4 months on expired tags ( I bought my VTX used last year) I finally registered my bike. Problem is, I didn't ride the bike to the Clerk's office and was not sure what the mileage was. Me, being an idiot, claimed it was "around" 23,000k. Title came today, it reads...
