Flash To Pass? The Indian high beams don't have that?

Not as far as I've found.  Still a lot of stuff I don't know yet.  I mean they have the low/high switch but I haven't figured out the FTP works, if at all.

Have you counted how many times the Indian name is stamped on the bike?

This bike is no different than the C14 when it comes to battery terminals loosening up.  Went to check them and the negative was so loose, I could turn the bolt with my fingers. Fixing that now.

Back from the Ohio trip with our Sport Touring buddies.  The Roadmaster is not a Sport Tourer.   However it did keep up with the crowd albeit with me second to last in the group...my choice.   Normally I'm right behind the leader as he has an 09 C14.  I scraped something twice.  Haven't figured out what yet.  We really enjoyed the trip and the bike.   Neutral is actually easier to find than on the C14.   If you forget to downshift it's easier to get to 1st than the C14.  So, I'm definitely going to sell my 08 at some point.  Changed out the Area P for the stocker.  My goodness that thing is heavy!   Rode it back into the garage and couldn't control the throttle...  I've got to get it VA inspected and ride it some more.   I can't believe how easy it was to adjust my riding on the Roadmaster coming from the C14.  Going back is more interesting as the foot placement feels very awkward now.  I'm really liking the floorboards on the Roadmaster.

A throttle lock is a cruise control, controlling the bike's speed by maintaining the throttle at the position the rider sets. The C14 motor used to be a de-tuned ZX14 motor; Now that the ZX14 has a 1,441cc motor, the 1,352cc C14 motor is just smaller. "The exhaust" = the muffler, the entire exhaust system or the gases that are created in the motor, routed thru the exhaust system & out the muffler.
