I run Commander II on all of my bikes. I've have a set of Metz for my M109R sitting in a bedroom for a few years. What don't you like about the Metz?I don't like Metzler tires
That's my prediction. 111/116 motor will vanish from lineup in few years and you'll see the new motor on everything. It worked for them with Victory.I hope Polaris comes out with a muscle bike with that engine that's much simpler and can be easily modified (apes, windscreen, etc.). Might make me consider trading in my M109R.
Hi Blackhawkfan, I'm surprised that you're undecided about ABS if you do a lot of dirt roads. I do a lot, including a lot of closed throttle steep down hill 1st gear work, and I''ve grown to love the ABS.Regarding the Challenger, I like it overall with the exception of the following:
Fairing - I ride on dirt often enough to know a fairing obstructs my near view of the road. Also don't like the weight it adds. I have to assume they nailed the aerodynamics.
Electronics - Don't need the three mode and traction control. Don't need radio. GPS is good, though. Still on the fence regarding ABS. My jeep has traction control. I can only disable it when in low 4. I've had that thing lose power in a turn when it thought I'd lost control of the vehicle. Irritating.
Lots of folks love ABS, so I'm sure it's a good thing. I haven't tried it. Maybe if I someday buy a bike with ABS, I'll change my mind. Until then, I'm secure in the fantasy of complete control over the individual brakes.Hi Blackhawkfan, I'm surprised that you're undecided about ABS if you do a lot of dirt roads.
