Best Harley guy I've met when I first started riding and my first bike was a 2004 Sportster 1200. For those that don't know, the 2004 XL's got the Buell heads and (mostly) bottom end, so they made good power for what they were and responded well to upgraded exhaust and carb tuning. Some dude on a Fatboy was flat-out pissed that I had a dyno sheet saying my "girl's bike" was making something like 80hp (I can't remember exact figures) with just slip ons and a rejet and his "big boy's" bike was only making 2-3hp more despite having a displacement advantage, big bore kit, yadda yadda. Insisted I was lying, dyno read high, whatever. What a tool, lol.
