Default SE Road king VS my sporty....

So I work with a guy that has a 2005 SE Road King with the 110" SE motor. He wants to "run them" tomorrow after work. I have a '10 1200 low with a SE heavy breather, dyno jet power vision tuner, and python pipes. Its just for fun. Do I have a chance against a 110" Road King???

Even with the RK weight if it has been tunde properly the torque on it will be close to the HP. With that kind of torque the RK will launch hard! I think it will be close off the line!! But that's just what I think

You need a box of Dunkin' Donuts. Just set it a bit from the start, and no RK rider can resist. You'll win by a mile.

Come off the line a little easy: Don't spin the tire. Screw that pony all the way back and power shift every gear. 1/8 mile you probably have him. If his bike is tuned properly and he knows how to drag race, he would most likely come around you in a 1/4 mile run. Good luck, and put that big twinkie on the trailer.
