I find worn-out BMW final drive bearings and bevel gears easier to move about. (Although they don't work out much cheaper than a Harley.)
Got a good holed Ducati piston that works well too.

Talking Thanks for the well wishes fellas...

Feeling pretty useless right now, doc won't agree to much of anything except walking, so I'm walking my ass off and then couchsurfing my ass off in between walks!

I thought the same about the door stop comment DAKEZ, and then I noticed the guy rides Ducati's! Sometimes you just can't make this shit up!

Back to the original thread, What's Harley doing? Kicking azzz and takin' names...

Like their bikes or not, that's hard to argue with. Nice job, HD!
Have you got a link for that info?

I honestly love that H-D setup! Seen this here setup like that in a magizene one time, thought it was cool. If as his plate says, H-D made a Dirtster model, I think they could sel a few! Well not really. But its cool. Still not a overweight 600 pound Dirt Bike, but decent for adventuring!

Like that guys helmet!

Isn't it a bit ironic a black dude wearing the Stars and Bars? Maybe I'm just ill informed but I would have thought it an odd choice.

Yes, I'd say you were ill informed.
