No regrets.

I was thinking about the mistakes I made in my life.

I drank too much.
I did some drugs.
To the point of being homeless for a while.
I lied to family members, employers and friends.
I have been a jerk to some people.
I dumped a woman or two that I loved.
I wasted my money on crap when I should have saved it for a rainy day.
I killed (accidentally) a cat.
Blamed other people for some of my screw-ups.
I didn't always do...

Love the new Fairing

Posted 17th March 2008 at 15:55 by glh

Thank Goodness. I've had 2 windshields on this bike and neither worked well.



My original post for help is here:
http://xlforum.net/forums/s...ad.php?t=86885

After 5 months of struggling with wind issues, and knowing I will be touring on my Sporty come early summer, I bit the bullet and bought a fairing. Riding without a shield is a blast, but there...

some equipment changes

Posted 6th September 2009 at 23:26 by emzdogz (EMZ' BLOG mush from Aunty Em's brain)

well I changed some of the bolt-on stuff on my 07 XL1200L over the summer. Just today went for a ride to really test out how I like it all.

Went from a Memphis Shades handlebar-mount shield to a National Cycles "Flyscreen".

Went from a Drag Specialities 2-up seat to a Mustang WIDE solo.

Went from sissy bar and some sort of bag attached, to NO sissy bar at all, and instead a pair of Willie and Max bags mounted up with Easy Brackets.

One Damn Day (Part 1)

Posted 17th September 2015 at 05:04 by Nolemags
Updated 21st July 2016 at 01:42 by Nolemags (typo)

Every damn day I would go into the workshop to do anything I would try not to look at the ’69 sportster on the stand with its guts all hanging out on the concrete.

And even more ashamed for not putting her back together.

I knew that one day, it would all wait and the priority would be to put...
