Coming home from a ride tonight and seen several friends with their bikes parked in a driveway. Turned around and stopped to say hello! Two brand new Harley's were parked side by side. Both owners mentioned that they had just a few hundred miles on their bikes and after that they walked over to the 109 and couldn't take their eyes off it. The questions were flying about the 109, HP?, Torque? Ride Comfort? and they couldn't get over the 240 rear tire. I haven't made mods yet but told them about a 250 tire upgrade, side mount and a few other things I'd like to do. The guys were amazed that I was going to change anything as the bike looked awesome stock! One of the guys looks at me and asks, "Another Harley Eater", I smiled and said yes. They remember my 1800VTX/C and I told them that the X was a Hot Dog Eater, when I first got it. We continued to talk for another 1/2 hour and they kept circling the 109. I never did get a close look at their bikes and finally left thinking, these guys were hard core HD folks but you could tell by the expressions on their faces, that they thought the 109 was a Kick A__ machine.
