    Hey Bluetick, sorry for the late reply. Been out of town a bunch the last couple of weeks.

    I'm loving the new 114 engine. I have a tad over 7,000 miles on it now and loving it. Plenty of torque to pull the camper and utility trailer with no problems at all.

    I thought I might lose some mileage with the Stage II but, as long as I don't exercise my right wrist too much, mileage is the same, about 47 mpg.

    No complaints at all.

    Aloha!

    Definitely my K-Mart Northwest Territory 5 person "Raised Wall" Dome tent. 9' x 9', power port opening (I really needed this feature!) and 2' x 2' bigger than my last tent (and about 14" taller"). Compared to my 7 x 7 three person, it's the Taj Mahal. On rainy days I can stay in this tent with a compact chair and feel comfortable. My last tent, I had to lay down on my sleeping bag or sit Indian style. And as a bonus, it packs almost as small as my old 7 x 7.

    Super close-out priced at K-mart for $39.00. I should have bought two or three at that price. My last K-Mart NW Territory lasted me 8 years. If this one does as well, that's $5.00 a year. Outstanding.

    How do you like pulling the Mini Mate with the Indian? I'm seriously considering trading the Ultra For a New Indian. I have a Mini Mate as well
    The Ultra is an 02 with 74,000 miles. I think it's timeClick image for larger version.

    I pull a Leesure Lite with a 2016 Indian Roadmaster. Pulls great. 6th gear is a little different than my Goldwing (as Goldwing only has 5 speed). No problem pulling, but sometimes have to shift to 5th on longer hills. Lots of power.

    Love the bike,
