So looking at Chefs new ride had me thinking on the way we all felt buying that new to you bike and riding it for the first time.
Post up some pictures if you have any of the first or first few days with your new ride.
Here's my last two bikes as I'm still at the dealership. Haven't ridden either one yet at this point...lol

The day I picked up my bike. After getting delayed picking it up a few days and then having to wait 3 hours for assembly I was excited. Here she is with 0 miles.

I'm not saying ;)

That's a 15 RG Special... gloss black painted inner, nice wheels, full touch screen radio, built in nav, boom speakers, pin stripe, LED headlights...

Kosher I kept hearing about the "upgraded cam" again... But I didn't remember what you figured out about that...

It is a better cam than the previous stock 103 cams, but it is *not* a 255 cam like the idiots at the dealer will tell you. It is *similar* but not the same according to the 2014 model year technical document. The new cams were introduced in the 2014 model year.

"The 2014 models timing specifications are closer to the Scream'in Eagle 255 cam specifications, and contribute to the torque increase in the engine".

Note: *similar*. Not the same.

Yeah, 255s wouldn't be my first choice if I was looking just to bolt in a cam.

Great thread. I have pics on my external hard drive of the day I brought home my 2001 Honda Shadow, my 2007 M109R, my 2008 Kawasaki Concours and of course the Raider. My external hard drive stopped communicating with my computers and I have to figure out how to retrieve all of the stuff I have on it. :(
