    I saw it. Great racing! Much more fun to watch than the other races. The top three racers were really going at it. I actually was impressed how fast they were hauling on those sporties. Anyone who thinks Harleys can't lean should watch that. Yes, they're down bigtime on power compared to the open sportbikes, but that's what having 90 hp vs. 180 hp means. They sounded sweet! Too bad they didn't turn up the track volume more. Kudos to SPEED for showing it. Hopefully more in the future.

    The tank on my 2006 XL883 is scratched up pretty bad from the tank bag. But I like using a tank bag. I'm considering using truck bed liner on it.

    BIG improvement. But I'm still dialing in sag and want to give them a few hundred miles of break-in before any review.

    Pretty as that Coker Vintage skin was out back, it complained a little too much every time I wanted to tilt the horizon. Enter something a little more sticky and a little more sporty. The circle cut pipe shields, never really worked out as imagined ( i was going to paint them the same BRG as the tin but apparently the finish would not take the heat ) so I've defaulted to the wrap which I've always felt worked with this scoot. Now it's time to chop the rear fender and lose all that stock lighting. Someday it might end. Ya think?

    What'd that old man in the pickup say before he rolled the window up?

    Isn't that against the law in Texas?

    Awesome,

    I have never seen one of your bikes that I didn't have an instant lust for. I think the '48 is a great platform

    I think the '48 is a great platform as well, Man but this one came off the floor as an 883 Iron.

    Thanks for the appreciation, Viking.

    The guy on the shovel stalled out in front of the truck so he had to push his bike over to the side of the road. The guy in the truck zoomed up fast behind him, honking at him, and calling him an asshole for taking up the lane... This is what took place at the light afterwards...

    It's good to see that being an asshole isn't exclusive to Florida. :lol3
