You can get them from allthingsjeep.com . I buy a few for jeep club door prizes every year . They also have one that reads "you can follow me but its going to hurt" which would work on a bike .

And what is it with the FXLHMAY and XLTYZYA (by the by, those are COMPLETELY made up, I know, but you get the idea) with Harley? There has to be a rhyme or a reason. If someone could post up said reason I'd appreciate it.
One better then that my 610 Husky was really a 570 haha. I think KTM does the same. Shit they should have made it a 1610!!!!

Some like the ultra
FLHTCU - wide front end, touring, Classic (batwing) Ultra - or someschitt liek that
Mike same as ultra but bigger motor that year and extra options - FLHTK - "K" fuck we're outta letters

how often do you follow those limits yourself?

i really hope that you ride slightly faster than whatever traffic you are in so that you are never boxed in.

Dang. It's gone Viral. Twenty-eight pages since it started at 2:00 this afternoon.

Settling it for a long read...

PS-- it took one hour and two pages for it to get moved from Battle Scoots and merged with whatever over to JM. Top-notch.

Need a "best of" system. So much garbage to try to get to the good stuff. FTR, it's just as grating to read her posts as it is to watch her videos.
