Did bike night last night like I do every week during the riding season. Have a blast with the people who actually ride.

Been riding 100mi a week on the street, but the dirtbike has been a little neglected. Looking forward to making up for lost time this fall.

What bike won your favour this summer Bug?

Down to one bike now and it is a completely overhauled '15 HD Road Glide Special with a Stage 4 117 Kit and Baker DD7 trans - 590 Cams, 58mm Throttle Body, CnC Heads, 10.5 Compression, 2 into 1 D&D Fat Cat Exhaust and much much more - All sorts of custom work (bags, bars, wheels, stereo, etc etc) done to the bike as well - Dyno'ed at 130hp and 140 fpt which for a big old fat HD Bagger is pretty damn good - The History of the bike and build was too good to pass up and i could not be happier - Rolled it out to Galena last weekend and all over Wisc the long weekend prior to - Had it a tad over (3) weeks now and put over 1500 miles on it - That 140fpt is insane and the Baker Trans is amazing too - Funny to see a Bagger lift the front on power only......but she does all day long

Pretty snazzy! :cheers

Do your arms break parallel with those bars? I'd hate for you to get in trouble with the law over something (ahem) small.

Straight Shot at shoulder Height - 12 Inch Black Chrome HD Tall Boy Bars, with Heated Grips and a CVO Seat with both Rider and Passenger Backrests - Outside of the motor, what the guy dumped into this bike is insane - Over $12K in Motor and $8K in Add-Ons on top of the Cost of the bike - Hell, the Baker Trans is $3K and the Clutch is another $1K - The Bags were $2500......and the list goes on and on - Dude builds a new bike every winter - Built this in the '14 to '15 Winter and in the '15 to '16 Winter he did the exact same build on a Street Glide and decided he liked that faring better - Is building a 2017 Fatboy now with a 131 Kit/Motor that should have him over 150hp and 160fpt which is insane for a Harley - Dude has $$ to burn I guess and gets all his bikes and build done from Heritage where I got my old HD and now this one - The bike is a god damn riot

Hahaha - Indeed - The Bike is a riot and sounds amazing - Digging it the most - Long Hauler, Tunes, Comfy Seating and fast for a Harley - Upgrading the Susp over the winter as that is the ONLY thing it is missing

HD? Really?

Does not compute.
Been off Sportbikes for years now man - That SuperDuke was the last one I owned - With Father Time kicking my ass and the back getting worse, I was Cruiser Bound.........and could not be happier - Did over 350 miles last weekend and was as comfortable as sitting on the couch.......with Tunes playing and Sunshine on my face - All good amigo

It is Bro - I do miss MX and SM for sure but do not miss Sportbikes - I swear HDs are just invisible to cops - Its great riding and nit having to look over your shoulders or in your mirrors all the time for Johnny Law

Yeah, a Buck 60 will make a bike VERY hard to see....I imagine

I am happy when I break a Hundo now

I got a little carried away on Sunday morning and lost track of time. Family obligations meant I needed to hustle a bit to get home in time. First time slabbing on a bike in 10 years or so. Sunday morning traffic on the fresh side of I-90 gave me a chance to stretch the Ape's legs. Completely forgot what felony speeding on a sunny morning feels like. My bravery redlined before the bike did - but damn if that wasn't a life-affirming 10 miles or so.

Bikes are cool.

(and I made it home right on time)

:cheers

Nice to stretch the legs every now and then.

Finished rebuilding the old M last year. Raced it at RA, even stole a podium in TB, hadn't been there in 6 years, hadn't raced in 5. Still rockin' out with my cock out.

Also building a 2001 M600 for 500SS. Might even make the whole season this year.

Anyone wants to party, me and Grasshopper are still holding down the fort at the track. Later dudes.

PS. wtf is up with the constant loading of these BS pages on here.
