    You're right...and I know that. But I'm beginning to not even want to wave at cruisers and I dont like that feeling I have towards other bikers. On a side note: in IL its against the law to modify the exhaust system to make it louder...police dont do anything about it. What really gets me is a guy who works across the street and comes in and leaves at odd hours...like 3am and tears out of the parking lot like he's at the dragstrip. Ive called the police but they wont do anything. ok...sorry to rant! I'm still trying to love everyone! :raabia

    Just got back from a trip; Austin, Texas to Yellowstone. 2011 Ultra Limited.

    Damage from hitting a deer in the Texas Panhandle. After replacing the headlight, spotlight, blinker lens and repairing the cover for the lower fairing and tourpack I was able to finish my trip.

    Hit some snow going through Cheyenne, Wyoming. Thankfully it wasn't sticking to the ground.

    More snow up high at Yellowstone, but the roads were clear.

    Not a HD rider and may never be one, but I finally rode one recently. A buddy bought one and after a quick tour, I must admit I get why HD riders like the bikes. They don't push you to be stupid and they coddle you.

    Funny thing, how come no one complains about HD switch gear which is pretty much the same as BMW switch gear. :lol3

    It is similar to a BMW but not the same. You push the left turnsignal button to start the left signal and then again to stop it. Same with the right. On the BMW you push a third button to cancel, and that is the part people that are not used to the BMW complain...they push the horn button a lot instead of the turn cancel because the horn on the left is identical to the cancel on the right!

    Back on my K1100LT there was a hazard button. The HD you push both signal buttons at the same time to get the flashers going like my newer K1200GT is set up now. Curiously, the K1300GT and the new K1600GT/GTL use a completely different setup now.

    I like the HD button; very intuitive.

    GREAT pics! Love the snowy roads. I've been there, done that...and I wanna go back and do it again. I worked at Yellowstone as a young pup, and I was on a motorcycle. Had to ride last few weeks in snow. Feels kinda cozy on bike in conditions like that.
