I like the Dynas too. They are the only big twins you can get with rational footpeg positions. Good choice.

You will like that bike. The EFI is great. Give us an update when you get it.

I believe ones concentration level goes way up without the constant noise. I ride much more relaxed in all conditions with ear plugs.

Riding is like working on a difficult problem, stay focused with as little distraction as possible.

If you don't know which type of plug is best for you, Aerostich has "sampler" packs:

I have worn plugs on and off, but haven't found ones that stay in. These sampler packs seem to be the ticket to find something that fits.

If you are undecided about which plugs to use, Rider Warehouse a.k.a Aerostich offers two sample packs. 12 different disposables or 10 reusables (pairs...sorry) so you can find your favorites. Go to aerostich.com. You will have to do it manually I don't know how to do that link thingie.

I'd imagine you get anywhere over 1-1/2 ton on a public road your grommet would get so puckered the earplugs would pop out.

And the winner of the Sarnali Auxiliary Bike Championship is...?





BTW, I finally rode a new Sprint. Not gonna say it throws some heat, but the backs of my thighs are Medium Rare.



The new bags suck.

Oops. Didn't read down here before my post above.



New HDs are going for less than MSRP down here. Don't know which models specifically, but the Dealership in Ft Walton has an ad in todays paper for $2K off new bikes. Here is a link to their inventory. http://www.heritagecycles.com/motorcycles.html. Assuming they are still there this time next week.



My first bike was an '88 FXRS LowRider. Loved it, got the 7-1/2 year itch and sold it, then got the Sprint.

One word of caution...



When you ride your bike for the first time while wearing earplugs, don't be too alarmed by all the strange noises your bike is making. It's probably been doing that along; you just couldn't hear it above the ambient noise.
