Ahh well, between the stupid Twit app and the iPhone there's like 5 different places to set notifications on or off. Seems like the last time the Twit app got updated a couple days ago for some reason it decided to turn off only the Tweet notifications. Just had to go into settings on the Twitter app and turn that one thing back on.

Yeh! Tell me about it. I got stopped in Elm Springs a few weeks back coming into town from the south. 50 in a 35 he said. I told him I just didn't get slowed down in time. He let me off after I took his picture.

Finally getting around to doing some tuning on the 690. Trying to get rid of a couple flat spots and hopefully get the thing to start easier when it's warm. Either that or I'm gonna hose it all up.

Yo Albie what kind of tire changer do you have? I bought myself a few new tools, grabbed a Craftsman motorcycle lift, a balancing stand and a portable tire changing stand. I tried them out yesterday and put new tires on the wifes new to her Harley. The bad part is my good tire irons disappeared! I was pissed. Had to use some old 8" irons and it sucked getting those stiff sidewall tires on. Got some new irons on the way, cant figure out where my other ones went.

That tire changing stand is pretty nice, I've been using a milk crate for 25 years to change tires.

I've got a Nomar changer and I also have a MRP stand. Nomar works great on most street bikes, just not Harley's Actually, they make adapters for dirt bike wheels, that are also for the Harley wheels.

Yup, 2007 1200 Sportster Custom. Pretty slick bike with only 10k miles. I changed the oils in it and put on some new rubbers yesterday, it's ready to go.
