    By the way, where did you purchase yours?

    Oh Yes!!! Without the DB killer. Saw another video on YouTube, that showing these. Still cheap enough to be able to afford the tune up required. Thanks for the video...definitely towards full exhaust over slip ons

    THANK YOU!! I actually was looking at the M4 slip on, which is like $400. However, from previous info given and what I seen online, I have to do some cutting, and I’m not comfortable with that. I’ll def check this out and see how much installation will be. Thanks again

    Thanks!! Great info!! Sorry for the lack of knowledge but I didn’t know they cut up the stock pipes for the slip ons...makes sense. As for full exhaust upgrade, yeah, a little out of my budget right now...and you’re right...new pipes, means new air filters, tune up, etc. it’s not that serious for me at this time. Just wanted something louder...she sounds like a weed eater...lol I’m coming from a loud mutha Harley...it will be an adjustment. Lol i will def look into cleaning this bike right too!! Really appreciate the good advice!! oh, would you know about ECU tuning?

    Question does a slip on exhaust make any difference? I had slip ons in my Harley and while it didn’t increase power like a full exhaust upgrade would have, it did give a little more power and made it considerably louder. Thanks for any info!! Bike is so damn fun...what a difference!!

    The color is an adjustment for me. All my bikes were black, 2 of them all blacked out. However, this dark gray looks so good...very fitting of the bike. Shocked they’d go with this color wheels though...love it though. So very happy.

    Done and done...picked her up today and I could not be happier. Had to ride home in the rain, but it didn’t even matter. You guys were right, the bike is light and nice in the turns. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! My concerns were the turns and stalling out...and shifting...but it was so much smoother than I expected. The sitting position was not bad either. While my Slim is comfy on the backside, the sitting position was starting to bother me. Def higher on this bike but not bad. Hand position was nicer...closer together so for me, the wind wasn’t that bad. I mean, I should have started out with this bike. I can see what people mean about it being a serious but fun bike to ride! Thanks for all the advice!!
  8. I was comparing to the Slim. Yeah, and I can only imagine what the 07 will be like, even lighter. I will have to adjust to that.
  9. I’ve had 3 cruisers in the past 8yrs, but I’m looking forward to getting the MT07 on Monday. With that said, i can only imagine it’s two different exepriences (never had a sports or standard style bike). Currently, I have a HD Softail Slim, and it’s the most comfortable ride ever...I’m only 5’5” and the handlebar reach is perfect, the seat is comfortable as hell and suspension makes the ride smooth as hell. Perfect for long highway and back road rides. Don’t get it twisted, it has almost 1700cc so she gets up and moves. However, she’s heavy and turning small corners around town still make me feel like not too confident. Now, I started off on a smaller Sportster 883...that was fun to ride...you felt every corner and it wasn’t a “chore” to ride around town. Long rides, super uncomfortable after 30-45 mins. Only 800 cc so getting up to good speed on the highway was a task...and unlike the Slim, the 883 was so light...going 80 mph, I was certain a gust of wind would blow my ass to the other side of the highway. Just my two cents...if I could have both, I would. That Slim was like riding a caddy, but I’m ready to have something different

    Good point! Yeah, I learned to wear tight jackets in my other bikes because when that wind makes a parachute out of your jacket, it rough. Plus, bugs/crap off the instrument panel is a plus! Thanks!!

    Haha!! Good to know. By the way, love the bike in your profile pic!!

    Thank you!! I’m excited. Cruisers are definitely different...you can tell that in the weight. I’ve had many friends that went from Ninjas and GSXR’s to cruiser, for comfort...def not speed. It really depends on what kind of riding you want to do. I had fun on my 883...she was small, but so much fun to ride. Most sportster, and cruisers for that matter, have forward controls, so I’m sure that changes the riding experience. I believe the HD 883 was lower than the MT07 as well...and it’s a little heavier. Truth be told, if I could have both, I would...

    Yep, palm all through the face. I’ve seen them be called different names. However, when you speak of motorcycles in general, or in comparison to cruisers (which I love when people refer to all Harley’s as cruisers), this specific bike is considered “sport”. Then, you hear “hyper naked”, I’ve heard them called “sport touring” due to upright seating position. Oops...my bad. Lol

    Yeah, I’m sure I said something wrong...but damn triple face palms. You know, when you go on dealer sites, they called hyper naked, sport (not to be confused with super sport)...but you knew what I was talking about, right?

    Ok...I’ll have to look up toggle switch action. For the most part, “take it easy at first”, is what I’m getting. Thanks for that info
