Why Do I Keep Clicking Back Here?

Saw a vid yesterday of some clown who rear ended a car and landed on his feet on its roof via a nice flip - Thought about posting it here......then said Nah, no one's even home

Looked at my watch today and it read 12:10p and I thought, "I could go for a Bourbon, it is after 12p so why not?" which reminded me of HDtony and Arch - Thought about posting up if anyone was day drinking then thought, Nah, no one's even home

Got a new HD last weekend, was going to post up pics, then thought, Nah, no one's even home

So, if you're home, whats up fucker?

I traded in the old '05 Deluxe Road Sofa as I missed having a lighter more nimble ride like I had in the Dyna - I had a chance to ride one of these earlier this summer at a Demo Day and really enjoyed it so I am back to my low slung chopped up ride and took the Bobber route this time - Below is what mine will look like when I am done but for now, I have the same bike, exhaust and Breather, ripped off the front fender and will be adding this seat and these bars very soon - I am also going to burn through the stock rubber before I go with the white walls

So, I pretty much bike for bike swapped out my old for a new '14 Sporty 48 with a Screamin Eagle Big Breather Air Cleaner and a V&H Short Stacks exhaust along with the Stage 1 ECU - Toying with the idea of doing a Stage 2 over the winter

Dig ripping this thing and really do not miss big blue all that much

I'm lurking Bug. I'm also day drinking some Basil Hayden whiskey.

No one's really home here anymore, so I don't visit often.

I finished my Basil Hayden Bourbon last night and plan to tap my Beam Devil's Cut tonight - I tend to always swap it out after each bottle - Did the Wild Bird, Did the Makers, stuck On Basil for a few and now trying some diff Beam

weve all seen that vid 100 times by now, pretty impressive though, I'm going to the wisc 2 hr sumo endurance tomorrow, wonder if tnat will show, I would like to do Byron but im afraid they will cancel overnight if they get more rain, which looks likely on radar

As much as I thought I wanted a "Big Comfy Cruiser" I really missed my Dyna, or as Stan calls it, "The Suicide Machine" - I like the Bare Bones Basics and the Dyna was that and this 48 will be too - Just broke 100 miles on the Odom so I can now begin with the proper flogging and get that motor broken in right

Side bar, Kroc or RD5?

Nice new scoot there, Bug. Good luck with it. I lurk the old CLSB every few days or so and post if I feel the need...CLSB still has the best weather radar around!...good to see some familiar screen names................We oughta do a ride sometime in the near future.

Took the new turd out yesterday with the usual suspects and gave her a proper flogging like a 14 yr old watching his hot neighbor sunbath topless.

She is fun indeed - I have to get it to run with Troy's Stage 4 Deuce or die trying

It is fun - texting with Stan right now for the new Drag Bars and Risers so I don't really change grip height more than it is now - From a stock Form, the riding position of this bike is pretty okay - I like the looks of the Spring Seat but might just stock rock this sum bitch - Adding a few other nibble bits too
