Sexy, fast, abusive, rigid beast
Recall on the kickstand.
I love this bike!!
The Pitbull is a rigid monster. It is fast, sexy, abusive and aggressive.
The bike gets admirers over to look at it every-time I stop. Even if it's just for the traffic light, people roll down their windows to tell me how nice it is. At the gas station people come over to talk to me like they know me (gets kinda old after awhile, or if I'm in a hurry, still I try to be cool).
I added the Davinci Firepower Carb, Martin Bros Medusta exhaust and threw it on the Dyno. It is an S&S 107 cu, producing 105 horses and 108 ft/lbs of torque, all at 4900 feet in elevation.
This beast is definitely hard on the back and kidneys though. Watch those bumps!
My bike is a 2004 and has the 250 rear tire, the 05 and up, all sport the 300. I have ridden the 05 with the 300, if anyone tells you that it sucks up bumps better with the extra meat on the back, don't buy what they're selling.
This things is great and I love my bike, but you hit bumps hard enough on this rigid frame that wrecking the sucker is entirely within the realm of possibility. Especially if the hole is big enough.
Even with that rough ride, the bike makes me glad I bought it every time I ride it! If I didn't already own it, I would be out looking for the same bike right now.
If you're considering..., Do it! You will not regret it.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
