I'm hoping me heirs will continue to ride the bikes long after I'm gone.

The Factory Service Manual has a wealth of info, there's lots of times I'll just sit and read it to become more familiar with the bike. Many times just doing that I find myself out doing something on the bike. It's almost as if it creates the energy to make the repair.

That same theory works with Evos too. Sportsters make good parts chasers. Mine have even done a few miles chasing parts for the work trucks.
