LOL! .. Y'mean these slightly de-tuned Speed Triples? ...Yup! <img src="https://www.hondashadow.net/forum/images/smilies/icon_biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Very Happy" class="inlineimg" /> ...Second gear on my Tiger - off-road, is just astounding. Between 2mph and 50mph.. it just tractors-on through pretty-much anything as smooth as butter. Third and fourth gear? Makes power like water pouring from a bucket ..Just a Rocket-ship.

But you gottsta rev them a little higher than a v-twin off the line.

Loved my Aero. Great bike! 75-85 mph? It thrummed like a tuning-fork, could do that all day long without breaking into a sweat though.. Still kinda miss it a little.


"Baby" ..Served me well, she did!
