Lever is harsh. The clutch release is fine.

'09 Street Glide. I believe that is the Harley "Top seller".

I like the large diameter front wheel on the '09 Vegas for handeling. Looking forward to trying the Gunner with the fat tire, smaller diameter front wheel.

Got to see my first Gunner at the [I]Van Wall[I] dealer earlier this week... It was on a lift getting the recall done.

I've haven't heard anything about Harleys being harder to maintain or get fixed. Is that a general rule for Harleys?

Harley is old school engineering, which means you still have to deal with many of the old school niggles of bike maintenance as well...

The plus side to that is there's a lot of old school guys that know how to work these old school bikes so if you live somewhere like NY for example, you have a lot of them to take your bike to.

Before a nice memorial day ride.


Just added passenger seat and pegs for the wife.


Just bought amber turn signal bulbs. I'm going to tint the turn signal using nite-shade paint.

Wow, passenger seat actually looks good enough that in my opinion it improves how the bike looks. What other modifications do you have coming?
