That's hilarious.
It would be helpful if you had a complete sig and profile so we'd know what you have, its mods and where you live.

That H-D rider wasn't demoralized, he was educated.
Hey there MRMAXX, if your engine is stock, how'd you grab 6K revs? The limiter cuts in at 52 to 54K. Inquiring minds want to know.

had something similar happen one day after a full sunny day of riding. my dad and i (he in his yellow goldwing) pull upto a light that had the 2 harleys that cut us off earlier. harley rev'd and we all took off and in my left mirror i see 2 suprised harley riders shifting hard yet getting smaller and smaller. and in my right mirror i see a yellow gold wing staying with me. Dad hung with me the whole way. and was laughing at me at the next light. we agreed....that the harley riders would never speak of this incident ever again. lol cause they just got beat by a loaded yellow goldwing and shiney red victory with a trunk. lol

Odd how folks boast about blowing away a Harley yet you never hear anyone saying they smoked a Yamaha Venture ...

Even on the Yamaha Venture forum I see the same things ... but they never mention dusting a Victory ... or a Kawasaki ...

just sayin

Owned first gen Ventures from '83 to 2011 and we never considered Harleys to be in the same league, so ignored 'em. We tend to pay attention to those we consider to be direct competition.

I've also owned Ventures and am still a member on their site since 2006. Folks there post about beating a Harley ... heck, even I've done it a few times while I was riding a Venture. Not the same league? how do you figure that? Electra Glide / Royal Star Venture / 1st gen Venture ... same league in my book ... all full dress touring bikes that weigh appx the same.

The RSV won't get the jump on a Harley off the line but by the time you hit 3rd gear, he's in your mirror already.

Of course a Venture won't stand up to yours when yer runnin 120/120 but a stock XC is much less than that.

that is crank numbers for the Venture. I've also owned a few Ventures and I've not gone against a Harley that I didn't beat.
