I think I might have been 18 or so the last time I heard that at a stop light, but never the less when the light changed all 4 of us dropped the clutch. I had a Rocket III Touring to my left, a HD Fat Boy next to him and a Street Glide on the outside. Both of the HDs had stage one kits but it wasnt enough. I managed to get the TBird out of the hole a half bike ahead and by the time I hit 4th gear I had em by 2 full bike lengths. My buddy on the Rocket Touring said he let off when the back tire let go a bit but he still had both the HDs by a bike easy.... Needless to say we didn't hear much from any of the HD guys the rest of the way home... Mark one up for the trumpets!
I have an idea. Lets go race some Harleys!!!!!!
