Obviously 3500 rpm is 3500 rpm regardless but it's also different depending on which gear you're in. I doubt seriously 3500 is too low rpm in any gear although in top gear it probably doesn't give snappy performance.Now, if you are going uphill at 3500 and have the throttle cranked wide open to hold 3500 up the hill you are probably one gear too high and should downshift. If you are cruising down the road and have a handful of throttle left then 3500 should be fine. If/when I get a V7 I suspect I will almost exclusively be running 3000-5000 rpm except in 1st gear at walking speed when I am not up to 3k yet.
You just can't make a delicious statement like that then carry on the thread as if nothing happened. We gotta have :PICS!: :PICS!: :PICS!: Nick
I've heard dirtbike riding is a good start before going street; I think it will be, a bike getting a little squirrelly isnt abnormal for me... my 230 wiggles quite a bit.I'm getting so excited about this SLO trip!! Sounds so gorgeous! I love the drive down there, but the ride... I'm just daydreaming about it now (when I should be working!!).I find riding so relaxing, I'm totally focused on what I'm doing, being very aware etc... Yup, when you're riding you don't have time to think about other things. It's been my therapy for over 50 years. ;-T
**C You won't get a picture but I'll describe the beast. I'm 6'1" but only wear a 30 inch inseam, my arm span is such that I had to give up boxing because I had such a reach advantage. I had to install the bar risers on my Bassa backwards to get the bars far enough away so I wasn't resting my elbows on my knees when I'm riding, and I'm absolutely crazy about bananas. I'm constantly asked to retrieve small kittens from places they've gotten into. Other than that I enjoy just "hanging out" with the crowd. ;D ;D ;D ~; ~; ~; **C Dave ;-TP.S. I also used to have reddish brown hair before it turned the lovely shade of grayish red it is now.
Dave - perfect! We can forgo the pictures - imagination's better anyway. Great humour - thanks. I almost choked on my Salzburger Stiegl. Now back to the V7 Classic...........Nick
Dave is exaggerating a bit about his simian appearance , he is a handsome fellow even though his hands do hang somewhere near his knees . I can't talk , my momma had to hang a pork chop around my neck to ... , well you know the story .Dusty
