Thanks for the heads up. Mines due on june 12th and a phone call is in order
Too little too late for me. I’ll never give those assholes another penny of my money. Any company that you have to call and threaten to get a fair rate is a shitbag company in my opinion and not worth doing business with.
I hear ya, I despise playing the game every year to keep the same rate.
Really thinking hard about trying to make the space x launch on Saturday. Anyone have knowledge of good tent camping near the launch site? I’ve got a call into manatee hammock but it’s not looking promising.
The probability of the actual launch still continues to be very low. I think there will be a few additional delays that will make actually witnessing the launch quite daunting.
I went down for the attempt on Wednesday, I don't have any input on camp sites as I didn't stay in the area.
I arrived about 2 hours before the launch and traffic wasn't bad going in, I heard reports about it being backed up to the highway closer to the launch. It took me 1.5hrs to get back to I95 afterwards due to the traffic, if I were doing it again I'd plan a back roads route to get me away from Titusville before getting back on the highway.
Edit: I should also mention that there was a COVID Screening checkpont at FL boarder. Because I was coming from CT (I don't know what states this applies to but they didn't make everyone stop) they made me stop and fill out a form stating where I was going, how long I was staying etc. It took me less than 10 mins, but I suspect it could get backed up at times. I did get a free pencil out of it...
My trip to try to watch the SpaceX launch ended up being a total of 2478 miles (2586 on the odo) in about 50Hrs. Depending on how you slice it, there is a SS1000, a BBS1500 and a SS2000 in there. This is my first ride that could include nesting and I'm trying to make sure I understand it correctly. I know you can't nest a ride that is included by definition (SS1000 in BBG1500 for example). That rules out nesting a SS1000 in either of the other two, but I believe I should be able to nest the BBS1500 in the SS2000. Am I understanding that correctly?
Here is the spotwalla track if you're interested: https://spotwalla.com/tripViewer.php?id=228ed5ed11ba7b263f
As I understand it, yes you can. Completing the SS2k does not necessitate a BBS, so completing a BBS, then continuing on to an SS2k would be another certification. The nested ride won't count to Mile Eater status is all.
We survived to tell the tale, but the tale will have to wait.
Short version: We beat the clock, and the GPS says we made the mileage.
Longer version will be coming; I'm too tired to do it right now.
After some research I found that in 2018 Harley said they designed the new Fat Bob to survive the upcoming Zombie Apocalypse!
I bought the Fat Bob to ride to Walgreens BUT what if the Walgreens is further away? What if there are Zombie's? I might need more stuff.
I added a short windshield, the Garmin 396, a Harley swingarm saddlebag, a Cobra wraparound luggage rack and a Saddlemen trunk for Zombie protection gear.
Does my spare gasoline fit in the trunk? Yes it does...hmmm.
Clean install. I bolted the bag to the rack, no straps.
My favorite Harley.
You forgot to mention the Rinehart exhaust.
Any idea what the real world tank range would be?
Nice job on the extras...
Yes, the Rinehart exhaust to scare Zombie's!
I don't know what the fuel range is at speed yet. Hoping I can make a few test runs soon.
Thank you!! I think this bike will be fun.
Being that I am kinda a Fat Bob... your new bike is growing on me...
I knew it would be some short time until you starting farkling this bike
It would be nice to add this bike to the IBA ride list. Starting to think I can.
It's a nice looking bike. I know you can get it onto the IBA list. You know you want to...
Yes I do.
Looking great Rollin. Really looking forward to hearing some ride reports and what you think of the bike.
I have long admired the classic HD/Indian/Excelsior/etc. motorcycle, but never really wanted to own one.
The only HD I liked enough to consider buying was the V-Rod - not a classic. Never bought one.
This one makes the second. I really like this, and the way you've set it up.
Congratulations on the new ride!
I have little experience on HDs. I have ridden a V-Rod though. To me, it felt like an uncomfortable Yamaha V-Max. But it did put a smile on my face
