Default New (freakn' ecstatic) Vic owner

I just bought a 2004 TC with only 2500 miles on it for $4000 bucks it's been garage kept and still looks brand new. This is more machine than anything I've ever owned, I'm doing back flips over here.

You didn't buy anything... You stole it!

Congrats on the sweet deal. Enjoy it and post some pics of the bike and of you doing back flips.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

I know it's kind of a plain Jane but I love black and chrome, metal-billy music and pin up girls so it's perfect for me.

I had to do a small performance down grade I was only getting 25 mpg when I got it, it had a Big Shot tuner hooked up to it. After about 500 miles and six adjustments I got it up to 35 mpg.
When I removed it completely I got 40.8 mpg out of the last tank I'm happy with that.

I still can't get over how solid this bike is and how much power it has I can't imagine what the 106's are like.

Congrats on the "new" bike! If you have pipes and a hi-flow air filter, you may want to re-think taking that fuel controller off for fear of running dangerously lean.

I think it's all stock but I don't know for sure. The pipes are baffled no drill holes or anything and I've had the filter out to clean it but I couldn't tell you if it was after market or not. Thanks for the heads up I'll have to take it in and have it checked out.

It runs real smooth no pinging, popping, hesitation or anything at any time. The engine sounds like a sewing machine on HGH but I've read thats normal.

Congratulations, great looking bike. Enjoy it, that beast needs to be out running and not locked in a garage!

Thats why I lovingly call my Highball "The Wookie". It feels like it will rip your arms right out of their sockets.
