Default This Sportster is beating the sh** out of me

Shopping list:

1) Motorcycle lift.

2) Factory Service Manual.

3) Belt-tension gauge.

4) Torx socket.

5) Progressive 440 13" shocks (2" over stock).

The dime I ran over today didn't hurt as much as yesterday's. That one had a mintmark.

1) Slow down

2) Get Drunk

3) Realize that Harley scowl isn't fake.

Shocks? You have shocks on your Sportster?

In my day we pulled those pu$$y pogo sticks off and put in solid steel bars. And we liked it!

Its.......A FACT!

Sure, if you want a softer ride, give it more travel. It looks good too, IMO.

And a 5' chrome sissy bar with a Maltese cross at the top.

And don't forget those 10" over fork tubes with the galvanized pipe inserts to get that front wheel out front.
