This story is obviously bull*****. Everyone knows taking off the heavy and power robbing stock muffler will make your bike faster and safer, that's why cruisers are so loud, they want to wring every last ounce of performance from them.



They didn't mention if he used the back brake to lay 'er down and try to get away on foot, he probably did and they shot him with a taser and didn't want to get sued

You think someone is going to give him 10k? That's a dumb bail bondsman.

If that 100-mph chase had lasted an hour, he'd be bragging about his hundred-mile ride.

Just 100 mph? What was he on an old 400cc twin?

My Shovel makes more noise per horsepower than anything else. It wins hands down.

That's a Shovel for you, converting fuel and air into noise with out the bothersome side effect of horsepower

Now hold on there a minute pardner! My 74" Shovel pounds out a whopping 66 horsepower with the drag pipes, Andrews cam, and S&S carb. And that's at the back wheel on the dyno. So what if them damn foreign wing-dings make twice that? I'm still getting more babes per mile than they ever will!

He actually gets more than 60rwhp without the sandcast crankcase self-destructing? How?
