Yes. I rode a 2012 Racer and a 2013 Stone back-to-back. The 2013 has much better fueling, responds to throttle inputs quicker, and is just more fun.

and his favorite bike was an old Indian. So this leaves this HD in the "also ran" category. He had about 200 bikes when he died, so pinning his name on this one really doesn't mean a lot.
