Your friend sounds really cool. Considering he's been riding for two decades, it's good he didn't have a "know it all" attitude and was willing (and even grateful) to get advice and a fresh perspective from someone less experienced. His open-mindedness and willingness to learn something new quite l...

You are sooooo much overthinking this. I will tell you exactly what was told to me and what I told my buddy from the "best compliment" thread...You cannot be afraid to lean the bike. I try to keep my spine in a straight line with the center of the frame (side-to-side). When I push left or right, I k...

Probably applies to my thread about lean angle. Great story. I could only imagine finding out a 90 degree turn is a switchback. RhadamYgg I just finished reading your thread...you're way overthinking it. You have more lean available to you than you'll ever need on the street. Unless you ride in the...

Best compliment ever....

The backstory... When I first started riding, right after I passed the first MSF course, a good friend of mine rode into town to encourage me, get me out into traffic, get through a lot of jitters, etc. He's been riding for about 20 years. Well, one day we were playing around in a parking lot and I ...

If I've been commuting on the bike, I do a full T-CLOCS inspection (handy form) on Saturday mornings, including checking all the fluids. We actually caught an oil leak on the BF's BMW (*gasp*) by doing this. Before heading out on my commute, I run my hand over both tires checking for nails (I get at...

Ohh, SC, I'm so sorry! Hope you heal well. Ermmm . . . could you fly out & back? They don't make you use your arms on the plane (hopefully). I wish that was a possibility-but I have to keep up with physical therapy. I did have a thought-we could always, y'know, start our own rally :twisted: It's no...

Well, it's official-I can't go. My left shoulder has been bugging me since February, and it's gotten so bad that I just got 2 more cortisone shots in the joint. No tennis, no swimming, no weights-and no riding. :( Physical therapy starts next week. I'm not happy about this. At all. This throws the o...

I started on an S40. Just for comparison-I'm 5'6" and have a 30" inseam. I'm not telling my weight :oops: I think it's a fantastic starter bike. It's light, easy to toss around, and gets great gas mileage. However, long-haul rides are a bit uncomfortable. It runs the smoothest right at 45 mph and ag...

Just to further hijack the thread... On the Road King, I actually have to anticipate and decide which foot to put down. There's one stoplight where the whole road angles up to the right. If I try to stop on my left foot, I actually lean the bike past the "point of no return" and have almost dumped t...

Can't receive non-spam PM's?

Another member has been trying to send me legitimate PM's. I don't see anything in my inbox except for 2 PM's from a year ago. My inbox is not full or anything. Did I accidentally block PM's or something?

Thanks!

Lol HD is the KING of aftermarket accessories! As far as accessories, what you have listed seems like a pretty good list so far. I might add on a driver's backrest for the long trip out to CO, and possibly highway pegs. Maybe even a stereo with a helmet earphone jack if you're comfortable riding wi...

Your favorite farkles/gadgets/mods...

So, with the new Harley comes a brand new set of add ons and mods, and man, there's a lot of them to choose from. Just thought I'd start a thread to see what some of yall's favorites are. Right now, I'm looking at: -The kickstand (jiffy stand) extension (yeah, I'm that short) -Possibly the Reach sea...
