I guess someone just wanted to build that Harley dirt bike. A modern 400-450cc has all the power you need plus awesome reliability, sips gas and is light.

With all due respect if that's all you get from that pic you are missing the point.

This November will be seven years since starting this thread. Great to see the Milwaukee bikes and the great memories they are delivering! Speaking of memories...

Just a few pics from today's ride with my daughter who loves to ride with me, and keeps bugging me to help her get her motorcycle endorsement, and SOON.

Descending the south side of Kenosha Pass she snapped this over my helmet...


With the grassy meadows of the park and a spur of the Mosquito Range in the background, and the one who pesters me in the foreground...


No one can say the FLHX isn't a looker. Excuse me while I mop the floor...


OK, with the clouds brooding overhead, and the sun coming out briefly on cue, the lighting is perfect. The road, the peak, the bike, the rocks, and the abandoned homestead complete the setting...

we could start a new harley thread "cheap harley challenge".
found this one on kc craigslist yesterday. called the seller and told him i was about 220 miles away but i'd love to buy it.his very nonchalant, low key reply was "you sound serious, don't haul ass over here and get in a wreck, i'll hold it for you. three hours later i was at his doorstep. got home around midnight 88 flh, s&s motor of unknown displacement. starts, runs, rides shifts out good. runs hard, pulls like a mule. not perfect, but good foundation for what i have planned. clear title.
the best part, $2500.00

Nice score. Most of the FLHs I see around here are basket cases and they still want $2500. Keep us updated as you make it your own.

Just picked it up this past Saturday, my first new bike. Love it so far.

Anyone have any idea how loud the V&H exhaust is?
