    I've googled and searched, but can't find this info.


    What is the posted E.T. & mph for a 08 1200C for a stock bike.

    I'm happy with it's performance. I've had it to 105-110 mph (wasn't looking down to be exact on the speed) and there was still a WHOLE lot left in the throttle, But not much left in the seat. Tracy

    Hobbit,

    Thanks.


    Main reason I ask is:
    1. Just for personal knowledge,
    2. Saw a listing that Heritage Softails were doing 13.93 et & 93 mph in the 1/4, and wondered how the Sporty compared.


    Seems to be about the same.

    The more I ride and get more familiar with the bike---handling characteristics, acceleration (on straights & coming out of curves), the more power I want.

    I REALLY like getting into it coming out of a "lean".


    Guess I'm hooked (addicted). Starting to look into louder pipes & what is neccesary with those. $$$ is the limiting factor though :(
