Wow... ripping tens on a Road glide is mighty impressive. Wonder how it lasts compared to the 124.

Read a post a while back when these just came out that one of the builders stated the 143 was best for racing and not a good choice for everyday touring. Maybe since they have been out a little bit now someone will chime in with some new input. That thing is a beast though.

Yeah it's probably not for the everyday touring...but that's the point they were going for. They've stayed that if it doesn't help it go faster or produce power, they didn't have it on there. Yet they have the radio lol. Nice to see them push the limits and use the road glide as a platform. I think they'll try to market it for the street though

What is it that makes it not good for everyday touring? Compression is low, thats a great Cam to run with? I am thinking this is a group everyday bike as long as you dont live in the city hehe
