    straight pipes make me want to walk down the line in a parking lot with a pair of big channellocks, crimping tailpipes one after the other.

    At the same time put idle screws in them, so they don't have to constantly blip their throttles at stop lights. :rofl

    I wish I had the balls to carry a pocket full of small screws that I could offer to the guys at the stop lights, but I like my health too much to provoke a reaction.

    Before getting a HD I always said, " I wouldn't own a Harley if it wouldn't idle. I said that believing that the bikes really would idle it was just the nature of the riders to make all that noise. Well, time passed and I found myself in a position to own a pretty nice Harley for very little money. Thankfully it idled just fine and I didn't have to play that game of throttle blipping.

    Rode it for a year and a half with no idle or starting problems, then the forks sprung a leak. I took it to a local independent HD service shop to get it fixed. When I picked it up I put the choke on, started it and rode away like any other time. The first stop after opening the choke, the bike died. Restarted and rode away. Fourteen miles later stopped at a red light, died again.

    When I got home I checked the idle screw, it had been backed out. Must be a conspiracy

    picked one out of the 1700 pages and back on track with fails:

    he is fast, needs no mirror on the right.
    very stylish jacket and pants. that's a fail
    iso champion spark plugs he uses hustler, they are more sparky, ngk sticker? you cant use both
    don't be stylish and cheap to let the underside exhaust all rusty.
    pillion foot pegs are down while duo seat cover is on.
    and the obvious cloves off course.


    to get the topic a bit more alive.
