Hey has anyone checked their speedo w GPS or something? My new Roadmaster is so smooth, I can't believe I'm going as fast as the speedo is showing.
I was running about 75 (that's the speed limit) on 59 North today and no one was passing me so I guess it may be pretty close. I'll try to get a chance to check it with my buddy on his Wing and his GPS. Ran it up to 90-100 a couple of short bursts, and the bike felt so smooth and planted if still amazes me.Have not got a ticket yet and I keep to posted limits most often. (knock on wood)
I've known Dennis all my life. Great guy. He's done most of my work I can't do myself forever. Saw him Wed when I got the RM home. He's got the first 3 Scouts from Indian of Shreveport coming as soon as they can sell them.Man, I know right where you is....Ya ever go by Leggett's?
I had a ranch up in Marshall for years.
I've written about Leggett's and Joaquin many times on various forums over the years. No one believes it.I've known Dennis all my life. Great guy. He's done most of my work I can't do myself forever.

When I started riding my Shadow, I would be going 70 on the speedo on the freeway and people would be flying by me. So, I finally got a cellphone handlebar mount and put my phone on there and got a speedo app, and sure enough, the bike speedo was like 5 - 7 MPH off from the phone GPS speedo.It is accurate checked against GPS
How cool is that guys! Where is Leggett's, in Joaquin? I ride up into central Arkansas from the Houston area fairly often and will make it a point to visit Leggett's. I love those kinds of people and places.[/QUOTE
Leggett's shop is on 84 in beautiful downtown Joaquin. Three stores and his is the one with the motorcycles. Had the Yamaha dealership for several years. He might be open and he might not be open, but he lives just around the corner. He just did the Cannonball run from Fla to Wash state on a 29 Indian Scout. Had a perfect score. He's partial to Indians, but he can work on and knows a lot about just about any bike.
