More HP or better gearing?
My wife and I got our '09 classic a few months ago and really enjoy it. This is the bike we'll have for the next few years until the last child leaves home or we hit the lotto. I've been searching through the threads and I'm trying to find out a way to get a little more juice out of the bike when on the interstates. Most of our rides are like many of you; back country roads and small highways, cruising in the 60-70 mph range. However, with the two of us and my big windshield, the bike gets pretty uncomfortable running much over 70 mph on freeways when necessary. We have a big trip to the Blue Ridge mountains this summer and I could use more juice. Do you all think adding more ponies with a BAK and pipes would get our baby to handle higher speeds better or changing the front and/or rear pulley?
Many of you are WAY smarter than me and I welcome your advice.
