The only thing you said that i agree with is the fact that the 426's are heavier. Yes they are about 10 pounds heavier. However, everything else you said i would have to disagree with. The 426 is not slow, i think my 426 has more hit than my 450 does! If riding right they are just as fast as the newer bikes. Add a decomp exhaust and no starting drill!
Satch would probably agree with me!
Of course I would.......as a matter of fact...I am planning on getting an 06 when they come out and I can't bear to part with this bike. It is too sweet.
My 450, I mean 426, I mean Four Twenty Fifty Six...whatever
