that's one thing my gixxer can't do.... set off car alarms like a cruiser could. The engine just doesn't make the same kind of noise.

it's like comparing a v8 and a 4 cylinder. the v8 has that deep low rumble, while the 4 banger has a higher pitched "tuner" sound to it.

GearHead asked about Apes on a bagger. Well the simple answer is that APES ARE COOL!!! That is the first thing that I do when I get a bike, install ape hangers. I rode a Wide Glide with 22" ape hangers from the east coast of N. C. to Sturgis, S. D. three times. They really are comfortable, well after 4 days of 550 miles a day you do need some tricepts to hold your arms up. Very little pain for so much attitude. Harleyboy
Oh yea, I balled that Wide Glide up in Ark. on my way home in 2002 and this is my new bike. 2003 Firefighter Special Edition Road King. 16" apes and not tall enough.

I knew that'd spark something! Nah, in all seriousness, it was hard tp pay so much$ for soemthing hidden away never to be seen (under seat), but the performance increase is amazing and worth every penny.
btw, how much is it to get your module tuned in properly? Fo rmy bike, luckily one of the best places in the Midwest happens ot be less than an hour away. I think they quoted me $220-$250 to completely custom program (map) it.Where at in the midwest??

GearHead asked about Apes on a bagger. Nah, I wasn't asking anything, just said it's an interesting choice. I've ridden a number of bikes with them and they can be fun. That said, with respect to the comment I made is simply that for a bike (ultimate cruiser) that I'm going to put a thousand miles on in a couple of days travel they wouldn't be my first choice. A boulevard runner or a blast up the canyon and back is another story. The heart doesn't like to pump up hill and over long periods of time your arms get tired (my fingers would get numb). It's not simply a matter of conditioning biceps or triceps, it's a matter of supply and demand. :D That was the only thing I was thinking.

I understand what you're saying. I ride as much as anyone (long distance) that holds down a job. I've been all over the USA and parts of Canada also to Nova Scotia. Ape hangers are really not all that uncomfortable, but they are not for everyone. HB
