Just make sure the bushings in your kicker are good.

I sort of think they look dopey together, too. I'm a college student, so I couldn't afford higher apes with low risers. I just had to work with what I had laying around. Last week I scored on a set of low black bars and 2" risers. Makes the bike look like a WWII machine. Looks pretty cool.

Thanks for the comments, guys.

I don't know one bike from the next but I wave anyway if I see you, if I'm not in traffic, if I'm not clutching, and even then I wave too late most of the time.

Here is our new to us cruiser...



We take our first trip in the morning to the outer banks for two nights. Rain is expected and I'll let you know how it went.
Ta Ta For Now.

Ride safe. Avoid the front brake in the wet (don't ask how I know this).

Are Harleys particularly susceptible premature wheel lockup? Maximum dry braking seems to require some extra rear brake to transfer weight to the forks but very good otherwise. I'm still finding the envelope for this bike so we'll be taking it very easy and avoiding as much of the rain as possible.

Likely not as susceptible as my V-Rod with twin disks up front. Certainly yours isn't more likely than most cruisers. But I went down in an instant last September. I may have been on the paint stripe, but it happened fast. Real fast.

I had been using more and more front brake (having been an old school 'rear braker'), and was liking the way the front worked so much better than the back. Probably developed a bad habit. As a result, likely I tapped the front when I saw stopped traffic in front of me.

Engine guards and bags (and full gear) prevented any serious damage. (Except for the broken collarbone, which I ignored for a couple hundred miles after). Lesson learned.

Don't be afraid to take your Harley off road. You find some of the most interesting spots.
