The first night train... that was a dream bike for me. They ruined it though... now it's just a name.

Actually my 5'1" wife fit pretty well on the standard 883 except she had trouble reaching the clutch and brake levers with her tiny little hands. That doesn't seem to be one of the things they addressed on the new "L".

(*british accent*) And there was much rejoicing...



*twiddles first finger around in little circles.*



Yay. Yay.



er, something like that. Man. These Harleys change so much every year, it's hard to keep up!

How astute, the cloisonne' emblem is what seals the deal for me also!

No really I've always liked Sporty's, they seem to be getting better every year. I wish they'd have kept the Sport model but it looks like the Roadster has eveything it needs.

If I could just get the Rocket 111 out of my head I might buy one. It's on the list anyway....

I liked the new Sporty as well. However, I just did 800 miles Sat. and Sun. and was thankful I was on the Geezer Glide.



The Southern Sierra Nevada Mountains were awesome.

Sounds cool, We're heading down to Bend Oregon in August for the PNW Rat Raid.

We've got our room reserved, gramma's watching the girls and I just got a dividend check for a grand.

Life is good.

Ours was kind of a last minute "let's do an overnight" kind of ride.



Friday morning I woke up in Washington DC and Saturday night I was sleeping in Kernville, CA of all places. I rode from the coast to the desert to the mountains thru oilfields into more mountains and then down the coast back home.



The politicians I met in DC were probably more diverse than the landscape!

That new cloisonne is the H-D equivalent of the Bold New Graphics often pitched as updates by the Japanese companies. Harley's not the only company that introduces "improved" bikes with no significant changes. OK, they do it more often than the others, but...

There is always the FXDX Superglide Sport, it has that great blacked out look.
