You are obviously a thinking man. I however am not. I’m more of a ‘here, gimme that hammer’ kind of guy. These shocks come with absolutely no instructions. One is thrown to the wind and belching of every shade tree mechanic that wanders by. “Here’s a beer, …. Which way do YOU think it goes?” ‘tis why duct tape, JB weld and a hammer are so important in ones tool kit. On a high note, I was admiring the engineering marvel of my Lone Rider headlight guard. It is fantastically expensive so you know it’s good! On a lark I fell to distraction and decided to clean it. The ability to separate the layers and clean between them …… well it’s something only a Harley owner could truly appreciate. so for sh*ts and giggles I lit her up to see the marvelous display of my 2 wheeled Christmas tree. The Italiano short turn stalks…. The white lens swap on the Denali’s for my upcoming saddle sore ‘lite’ overnighter to Salt Lake; yes. She’s coming together nicely-WWWWWWHAT?!?!?! The left turn signal went out. Bump - wiggle - wiggle …….. ugh! I guess Italian and German connectors don’t play well together. So much for plug n play. Nothing that a good ol’ nippers and Harbor Freight weld-o-matic in my capable hands can’t fix! It’s 11:51 a.m. and Charlie wonders just how long am I gonna dink around here before he can go for a walk. is it too early for an IPA yet? I think not.
