Informative article, thanks. Not sure I'm buying the model theory for obvious reasons. No HD picture ya big Oaf?

That's not longride. That's Richard Masur!



Now we know.

Hey! I rode my shovelhead a whole two years (14K) without doing the top end!



Course it dropped a valve the next spring, but.....

I got almost 60k out of my box-stock 74" with only the front cyl exhaust valve burning, the bottom end was gettin' a little sloppy but there's alot of that going around (eh'm)... My 80" with S/S cases, Andrews cam, Branch heads, Manly valves etc. etc. puke'd on a pretty regular basis. Who'd a thought a Shovel couldn't handle 11.5 to 1 on unleaded? I guess the moral is leave 'em alone and they run forever.

Have you guys forgotten we're supposed to be poking fun at longride here?



Anyway, I was planning this high-falutin' business trip to New York. I got the girlriend a ticket and used my Hilton points for a room at the Waldorf. Then she decides we don't have a future together so I cancel the hotel and come up with plan B.



I found a place in Jersey that rents H-Ds and with any luck I will be cruising about the New England states next weekend. If I hit New Hampshire and Maine that will leave only New Mexico as a state I have never visited (including but not limited to: state of intoxication, state pen, etc.)

Sounds like fun, I lived in Montreal and Virginia for a couple of years, We used to drive all over the place in a VW squareback. Probably would be more fun on a bike!

I stayed in Montreal for a few days on my honeymoon. It's a wonderful city.



Hotel is cancelled! Bike is reserved. I'm getting a Geezer Glide in Rahway, NJ. I'll have it for four days. Tell the chowderheads to watch out. I'm coming!

Do you have to be a member of HOG to rent a Harley?. It'd be fun to rent a 'glide and cruise around. I got the closing date for my re-fi, then 3 days to process a check so with any luck I'll be Beemin' along around the first week in June, I can hardley wait.

You only have to be a HOG member for Fly and Ride rentals which are reasonably priced at $100 a day including insurance.



H-D has another program call H-D authorized rentals that anyone can use. The prices vary but expect about 120-135 per day. Check H-Ds website and click on products then try a bike.



I'll pick mine up Friday night and return it Tuesday evening. That should be enough to to hassle shopkeepers and terrorize New England girls.



Good luck with the Beemer!!!!

Default I'm here!

Hey MO staff! I sent you dingbats a note that I wouldn't be around for a bit. Took a nice "long ride" out to the Black Hills and enjoyed seeing the sights there. Made about 3500 miles in a week and a half along with about 500 pictures. Yes, I took the Glide for those that wondered. Yes, it ran perfectly, except for all the oil it leaked and all the parts that fell off. As for the rest of you MOrons, I haven't given up giving you all shyt. Just been RIDING like you all are supposed to be doing. Hope everyone liked the article. I dyed my hair and cut the ponytail just for the picture. Gotta grow it back so KPaul will wave when he sees me. I need sleep!
