Man, you'd think that by the time he'd submitted two posts, he'd have figured out what kind of responses he was in for!

I guess I'm fortunate he didn't take umbrage (woo-hoo! 12 point word!) at my suggestion he wear earplugs!

"12-point word"? Big deal. You'll NEVER win at scrabble unless you can get more than 12 points a word.

I was just proud that I managed to get a word like "umbrage" into the thread! There is a paucity of fancy verbiage in these otherwise pithy digital dialogues!

I submit that you, Ms LaRue and your legal cohorts are experts in Wars of Words!

FWIW, my 8 yr old is better at Scrabble than I am.

I take back the GFY. I didn't come here looking to make enemies or wanting smass replies, I came here looking for advice. And I went into the "Harley" forum hoping that someone who owns a Harley and has actually delt with the same problem successfully could give me some helpful advice. Ear plugs, yeah that's the ticket... I understand good natured ribbing, but I hope you don't welcome all of your new members in the same fasion. I don't feel my response was unjustified, but I offer my apologies regardless. I can take my question elsewhere.

Divorce her and get a new, quieter saddlebag.

Well it took me ages to figure out what "GFY" meant, sheesh.

Helpfull advice is it? I have found that using a prick punch and GENTLE taps with a hammer in the center of loose rivits while holding another hammer or the flat side of a wrench against the back of the rivit tightens them up pretty good. If you hit it too hard you'll knock the head off the rivit so be careful. As far as taking your ball and going home, probably a good idea, you come off like a ****head anyway.

Default Solution to saddlebag rattle on Road King.

I have the same issue with my Road King saddlebags. The problem could be caused by either 1) the bolts that hold the latches onto to the saddlebags may have come loose due to continuous vibrations over time. 2) There is a spring under the latch which is a part of the hinging mechanism. Over time and exposure to the environmental conditions that spring could become rusted and snap, causing it to loose its tension. This would cause the hinge to be sloppy and loose, hence causing the rattle... I solved my problem by finally replacing the saddlebag latch hinge. Cost of the part is approx. $88.00 per. And the replacement is easy...you can do it yourself!
Hope this is helpful.
