Mine tickles when cruising around 4000 to 4500 RPM. That being said, I'm usually more concerned with good gas mileage, so I cruise the highway in 5th gear, which stays below that RPM even up to 90 if I remember correctly.. At least at 90, I don't notice it if it's there. I find the tickling to be most noticeable when riding in 3rd or 4th gear in that 4000 to 4500 range.dynamos2000 said:hmmm didn't you just send me a message about this?
You must be bored. Anyway, get a test ride. Smooth. Its not a long distance mount because of the riding positon IN MY OPINION.. but I know she's gonna be an awesome semi long tour bike once A. I get the luggage deal figured out and B. handlebars/risers/cables
I rode for maybe 20 miles on some back country roads, leaving the bike in 3rd or 4th gear so the RPMs would stay around 4500. It tickled my arse and package... got a bit annoying after a while. Easy cure... Shift and drop the RPM to 3000 to 3500.speed28 said:I wouldn't consider it a "tickle". LOL. It's more like a pleasant hum that is very tolerable and actually quite pleasant.

No offense bro, just wanted several opinions before I commit several K's on a bike. The 109 IS at the top of the list but it's always better to get some experienced opinions. :bigthumbsup:dynamos2000 said:hmmm didn't you just send me a message about this?
