    Thought I'd bring you guys up to date on the 95" and cam build on my 02 wide glide. After putting about 1000 on it in the last 2 weeks after installing heads, 211 cams, 9.4:1 compression 95" pistons and cylinders, it goes like stink, idles perfecto, and if I treat it real nice, I can great great mileage to boot. Did a fuel economy run yesterday (55-60 and no hard accel) I got 53.5 mpg, 49.1 miles and it took .917 gal. to top it up. For the guy who just wants that extra poop without getting rad, I think this is a great way to go. A big thanks to you guys for the gooood advice, it turned out great---jack

    Congratulations! It sounds like you did a good job - especially with the fuel mileage.

    I'm not going get that mileage on any kind of regular basis because I like twisting the throttle waaaay too much. I get about 44 when riding under my "normal" riding style and 40 mpg at 85 on the freeway. I just wanted to see just how good it would do if I was trying to be extra nice to it.---jack
