40 YR Old Harleys and Cell Phones

Are a great combination.
Especially when you don't check to see if you have gas in your tank.
In the old days I would have been walking and or hitching to go to the gas station, then back. Modern times just call the wife and I'm back on the road.

Plus you get to take a picture of your bike sitting on the side of the road as a reminder that 2.5 gallons of gas gets used pretty quickly.

Look at the traffic that is building up to look at the bike. That could cause an accident! Think of the children! Neck snapper comes to mind. I love that bike, I have to see it in person someday.

It was rush hour in boonies. 3 cars backed up at a stoplight.

No, didn't even notice the place yesterday and when I looked at the picture this morning it got in my mind. Now I want Philly Cheese Steak.

Thanks Wink I'm pretty please with how it came out considering it was mostly built from others take offs and swap meet parts.

It could use a friend if you wanna go for a ride. Plus thats when I'll convince you to let me fly the pitts.

I've lived out here for 5 years now and I still can't bring myself to go and eat Turkey Balls.
